Overview

Our take on the Klipsch RP-280 5.1 Home Theater Speaker System

If you're a fan of Klipsch speakers — like many of our customers — then this top-of-the-line Reference Premiere speaker system hardly needs introduction. Pair it with a good home theater receiver, and you know it's going to dish out hard-hitting surround sound, and plenty of it. Let's just say that when you crank it up, it's entirely possible that the neighbors will know it. Will they be pleased? Hard to say. But invite them over, and they may just end up wanting a set for themselves.

This system can really deliver the goods with music sources, as well as movie and TV soundtracks. All by themselves, the front pair of floor-standing speakers can fill a big room with rich, detailed, immediate sound. Factor in the potent powered sub, and you can expect your two-channel music sources to sound live and dynamic.

The system includes:

  • a pair of Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-280F floor-standing speakers (in cherry)
  • the Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-450C center channel speaker (in cherry)
  • a pair of Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-250S surround speakers (in black)
  • the Klipsch Reference R-115SW powered subwoofer (in black)

The dynamic sound of Klipsch Reference Premiere

We're used to hearing great things from our customers about Klipsch's signature sound. One technology that helps create that famous Klipsch sound is the horn-loaded driver. Flared openings in the speaker cabinet project sound waves toward your listening area, boosting dynamics and efficiency. The Reference Premiere speakers that make up this system's front, center, and surrounds all use a newly developed Hybrid Tractrix® horn design that delivers a wider sweet spot with more precise spatial imaging. They also use copper-colored Cerametallic™ woofers that deliver smooth, articulate sound, as well as lending your system a striking appearance when you take the grilles off.

Klipsch RP-450C center channel speaker

Klipsch's Cerametallic™ woofers, shown here on the center channel, deliver smooth sound and have a striking look.

Big-time bass

Klipsch rounds out the package with their powerful Reference R-115SW powered subwoofer. Its high-output 400-watt amplifier pushes a 15" Cerametallic woofer for quick, precise movement, minimal distortion, and deep, bone-crushing bass even at concert-hall volume levels. The front slot port helps minimize turbulence for cleaner sound. And since the port is in the front, you won't hear unwanted "boominess" from sound reverberating off your walls and floor.
