Soundbar w/ Tractrix Horn Technology: The Klipsch RSB-11's soundbar speaker is
equipped with two 0.75" horn-loaded textile dome tweeters with 90° x 90° Tractrix horns
deliver crisp highs, plus four 2.5" fiber composite woofers for dynamic
midrange and enhanced vocals. By incorporating highly efficient horn-loaded
technology into the soundbar, all sounds are more detailed, dialog clarity is
significantly improved, and overall output is maximized to cover even the
largest listening areas. The tweeters and woofers are bi-amplified and utilize a
DSP-controlled crossover network.
Wireless Powered Subwoofer: The Klipsch RSB-11 includes a
wireless powered subwoofer with an 8" side-firing fiber composite woofer in a
bass reflex enclosure with a rear-firing port. The powered sub delivers deep,
accurate bass to your movie and music soundtracks. The sophisticated 2.4 GHz
technology automatically connects the soundbar and subwoofer together
wirelessly; up to 50'. The wireless powered sub's cabinet features a black
wood-grain vinyl finish and rubber feet. The wireless powered subwoofer has
independent volume control from the included IR remote control.
Dolby Audio Decoder: The Klipsch RSB-11
incorporates Dolby Audio for rich, clear, powerful sound. Its built-in Dolby
Audio decoder allows the Klipsch soundbar system to automatically
reproduce detailed, high-output sound in almost any size room no matter what
format of sound (including Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2ch PCM) is coming from the TV's output.
Sound Modes: The Klipsch RSB-11 soundbar & subwoofer system
offers 3 sound modes to choose from - Virtual Surround, Voice Enhance, and
Night. The Virtual Surround mode is designed to simulate the effect of a
surround sound system. The Voice Enhance mode increases dialogue volume for
enhanced vocal clarity without increasing ambient sounds. Night mode adjusts the
system's dynamic range for quieter listening environments.
HDMI 2.0: The Klipsch RSB-11's soundbar is outfitted with
three HDMI 2.0
inputs and one HDMI 2.0 ARC output. The system's HDMI connectivity supports 4K
pass-through and is HDCP 2.2 compliant.
- 4K Video Pass-Through: The RSB-11 lets you maintain 4K quality
from source to screen by allowing 4K video to "pass-through" and be
displayed on a 4K TV or projector, without compromising image quality.
Giving you the pure 4K experience makes this system the perfect partner for
4K-capable TVs and Ultra-HD Blu-ray players. 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and
1080p video signal are also supported (there is no upscaling).
- HDCP 2.2: HDCP 2.2 is supported by the system's HDMI inputs and
output. HDCP 2.2 is short for "High bandwidth Digital Content Protection"
and is used for 4K video copyright protection for compatibility with Ultra
HD Blu-ray players, 4K Satellite/Cable providers, and 4k online video
- ARC (Audio Return Channel): This feature of the
system's HDMI output allows audio to be sent from your ARC compatible TV to
the soundbar system through the same HDMI cable already being used to send
audio and video to your TV. This eliminates the need for extra cables
connected to your television.
Note: The soundbar's HDMI input does not support HDR (High Dynamic Range)
Digital & Analog Inputs: In addition to HDMI
connectivity, the Klipsch RSB-11 offers an optical (toslink) digital input and a
stereo minijack (3.5mm) analog input. Using the digital optical connection, the
soundbar accepts sound from both the TV and any device (such as a DVD/Blu-ray
player or Cable/Satellite receiver) hooked up to the TV. The system supports
Dolby Digital & 2ch PCM audio through its optical digital input.
Note: The digital optical output terminals of many newer
flat-panel TVs only send an audio signal in 5.1ch when receiving Dolby
Digital surround sound from the TV's built-in tuner, network connection,
HDMI inputs, or connected USB device; and will output only 2ch stereo from
sources connected to the TV via stereo RCA or minijack.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Klipsch RSB-11 features
built-in Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming of stored music and music apps
on your Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet,
Windows PC/Phone, Mac computer/laptop, and more to the Klipsch soundbar &
subwoofer system. A simple single button press will pair your
device with the RSB-11 system. Once paired, the RSB-11 speaker system will
automatically re-connect to your device when within range (up to 33').
- aptX Codec: In addition to supporting Bluetooth's standard SBC
codec, the RSB-11 supports aptX for CD-quality streaming from Android OS
- Playback Control: From the system's remote control you can
operate basic playback functions like Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track.
You'll continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to control advanced
music playback functions and to view song/artist information.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some
Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may
not support all features when used with the Klipsch RSB-11.
Remote Control: The RSB-11 comes with a full-size IR remote control
for wireless operation of the soundbar & subwoofer system. The remote also
operates basic playback functions like Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track for
Bluetooth-connected devices. You can also program the Klipsch RSB-11's Volume
Up/Down and Mute functions into your existing TV remote for further
HDMI-CEC: HDMI-CEC allows you to easily manage and operate
the RSB-11 system along with an HDMI-CEC compatible TV, Blu-ray player, satellite
receiver, and/or cable box with a single remote; when all components are
connected via HDMI.
Mounting Options: The soundbar speaker can simply be
positioned on a shelf or stand, below or above your TV. It can also be
wall-mounted using its dual keyhole slots and included template (mounting screws
not included). Because the powered sub is wireless it can be positioned almost
anywhere up to 50' from the soundbar speaker. It is recommended that the sub be
positioned on the same wall as the soundbar.
Power Requirements: Both, the active soundbar & wireless
powered sub will require AC power.
