4 Klipsch Principles: Klipsch believed four principles to be the
foundation for great sound. Together, these four design principles (high
efficiency with low distortion, controlled directivity, flat frequency response,
and wide dynamic range) have and always will be the foundation for Klipsch
stunningly powerful and precise sound.
LCR Design: The Klipsch Gallery G-42 is a passive "soundbar" design
with a separate
Right channel speaker; all built into separate chambers in one aesthetic
Tractrix Horns: The Klipsch Gallery G-42 soundbar utilizes Tractrix
Horn technology for lifelike sound, more output using less energy, improved
reliability, reduced distortion and a large soundstage with well-defined
imaging. Proprietary Klipsch technology with a refined 90° x 90° dispersion
pattern expands the prime listening area and improves dynamics, increases
soundstage dimension and produces pinpoint imaging for an enhanced listening
experience. The three horn-loaded drivers, one each for the left, right and
center channel provide a powerful and detailed sound from a very slim cabinet
that is less than 2.6875"deep.
Titanium Diaphragm Compression Driver Tweeters: The Klipsch Gallery
soundbar employs three 1" Titanium diaphragm compression drivers mated to 90° x
90° square Tractrix Horn. Combined with the Tractrix Horns, the 1",
solid-formed, very lightweight metallic diaphragms (one for each channel) work
in conjunction with precise phasing plugs at the horns throat to create highly
efficient drivers with excellent transient response and lack of distortion. The
new Linear Travel Suspension assures the most precise diaphragm excursion,
increasing high-frequency detail and smoothness.
Long-Throw Injection Molded Graphite Woofers: The Klipsch Gallery G-42
utilizes four 3.5" active long-throw IMG woofers (one each for the left and
right channels, and dual woofers for the center channel). The four total woofers
with light, yet very stiff diaphragms combine with large motor structures to
produce surprising bass output.
Bass Reflex Enclosure: The Klipsch G-42 soundbar features a bass
reflex enclosure for deeper bass and higher efficiency. Each speaker channel
(left/center/right) is housed in a separate acoustic chamber inside the G-42
passive soundbar, with each chamber individually ported. A design that provides
for the best overall sound with the least interference between channels, the
individual ports are perfectly matched with the cabinets and woofers and
precisely flared to minimize turbulence and distortion.
Molded Polymer, Low-Resonant Cabinet: The elegant, injection molded
polymer cabinet has a front baffle that curves to the rear on both sides to
create both a highly aesthetic appearance and a solid, low-resonant structure.
High-Gloss Black Finish: The detailed, twelve-step cabinet finishing
process achieves a sleek, high-quality piano black high gloss luster that
perfectly blends into any interior setting.
Acoustically Invisible Grille: With the thinnest grille ever to come
from Klipsch (one-half the thickness of a credit card), the sound is equally
detailed with the grille on or off. With it off, the high gloss appearance and
fine lines of the speaker are preserved due to the lack of visible fasteners on
the speaker baffle made capable by a unique magnetic grille rod attachment.
Binding Posts: The Klipsch G-42 is equipped with three pair
of sturdy binding posts (a pair for the left, center, and right channels) to
ensure a secure connection to many types of speaker cables and connectors. The
binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors,
spade-connectors, and bare wire (18-gauge or larger).
Wire Management System: The Klipsch Gallery soundbar's wire management
system keeps wiring flush with the back of the speaker for perfect surface
alignment and a clean, uncluttered appearance from the front or back.
Note: Speaker wire larger than 18-guage may not fit in wire
management system channels.
Tempered Glass Base: The Klipsch G-42 soundbar features a dark
tempered glass base that allows placement on a stand or shelf either in front of,
above, or below
your television. The tempered glass base attaches to the soundbar speaker's
back-panel dual threaded inserts (5mm) using the supplied two M5 screws.
Note: The Klipsch G-42 soundbar measures 41.9375" (w) x 6.5625"
(h) x 5.0625" (d) with the tempered glass base attached.
Wall-Mount Bracket: The Klipsch Gallery soundbar features two keyhole
slots and includes a wall-mount bracket to hang the soundbar speaker on the wall
(wall-mount screws not provided).
