Wide Dispersion Surround Technology (WDST): The Klipsch
R-14S surround loudspeaker delivers precise sonic detail through the careful
positioning of two Tractrix Horn loaded titanium tweeters and one 4" woofer. By
aligning the two horns at 90°
with respect to each other, along with the woofer, the R-14S smoothly
covers a 180° horizontal
arc, allowing maximum placement flexibility. This unique Wide Dispersion
Surround Technology delivers a new dimension of reality and convenience, and
produces a smooth, seamless broad distribution of sound, which is the perfect
vehicle for every surround format.
Dual 1" Horn-Loaded Tweeter: The R-14S surround speaker
features Klipsch's proprietary Tractrix Horn technology mated with two 1"
aluminum LTS tweeters, for impressive high-end response and greater extension,
enhanced imaging and powerful dynamics.
- Tractrix Horn Technology: The square Tractrix Horn
delivers a 90° (w) x 90°
(h) dispersion pattern for a broader sound-stage.
- LTS (Linear Travel Suspension): Behind each horn lies a
1.0-inch aluminum tweeter with a linear travel suspension to minimizes
distortion for enhanced, detailed performance.
4" Copper-Spun IMG Woofer: The Klipsch R-14S surround
speaker is outfitted with one 4" Copper-Spun IMG woofer. The Copper-Spun IMG
(Injection Molded Graphite) woofer is exceptionally light while being
extremely rigid - providing remarkable low frequency response, with minimal cone
breakup and distortion.
Acoustic Suspension Enclosure: The Klipsch R-14S surround
loudspeaker employs an acoustic suspension (sealed) enclosure for tight,
accurate, and natural sound.
MDF Cabinet: The Klipsch R-14S surround speaker features a
MDF cabinet with a brushed polymer veneer black finish that seamlessly
integrates into almost any room or decor. MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) is
utilized because of its damping characteristics for natural, uncolored sound
without unwanted vibration and distortion.
Acoustically Transparent Grille: The Klipsch R-14S surround
loudspeaker comes with a non-removable, black cloth grille that is acoustically

self-adhesive rubber feet to secure the speaker in place and prevent any
damage to your stand's or shelf's surface. The rubber feet add approximately
0.1875" to the height of the speaker.
- Keyhole Slot: The Klipsch Reference series surround
speaker feature a single keyhole slot on the back of the cabinet for
wall-mounting the speaker without any additional wall-mount bracket
(mounting screws not supplied).
Placement: The Klipsch WDST surround speakers should be
placed approximately 2' above the listening position. Typically this will be
about 5'-7' above the floor. The surrounds should be placed on the walls
directly adjacent to the listening position. Another option would be on the wall
behind the listening position.
Reference Series: The Klipsch Reference series consists of
three floorstanding speakers (R-24F/R-26F/R-28F),
two bookshelf speakers (R-14M/R-15M),
one center channel speaker (R-25C),
and one surround speaker (R-14S).
The Klipsch Reference series line-up of loudspeakers sound great in stereo and
home theater applications.
Optional Powered Sub: For bigger & deeper bass response,
pair the R-14S surround loudspeakers with one of Klipsch's powered subwoofers
(sold separately - see Accessories Tab).
