Our take on the Klipsch R-2502-W by Crutchfield's Marshall Chase
Klipsch® designed the R-2502-W as an unobtrusive in-wall speaker specifically for premium sound quality. They're ideal for home theater and music listening environments alike. Install a speaker on either side of your TV and use one below or above your TV as a center channel. Or use a pair as your "go-to" stereo speakers to enjoy your favorite tunes in any room where conventional speakers are hard to fit or inconvenient.
The R-2502-W pairs a 1" silk-dome tweeter with two 5-1/4" drivers. The tweeter is set within a conical horn for accurate in-room frequency response with high efficiency and low distortion. And the dual woofers offer full, impressive bass response.
An optional in-wall bracket is recommended for installing the R-2502-W in new construction.

Two-Way Design: The Klipsch R-2502-W in-wall speaker employs dual 5.25" polypropylene woofer cones for accurate sound with dynamic detail, while a silk dome tweeter mated to a symmetrical pattern 90 x 90 conical horn generates flat in-room frequency response with high efficiency and low distortion. The speaker's precision voiced crossover networks further ensure that the high and low frequencies are faithfully reproduced.
Basket/Frame: The R-2502-W has a sturdy ABS basket and frame. The frame can be painted to match any decor (a clear paint mask is supplied to protect the drivers from overspray). The aluminum mesh grille is also paintable.
Spring-Post Terminals: The Klipsch R-2502-W in-wall speaker features two spring-post terminals which will accept bare speaker wire, pin-connectors, or banana plugs (single/dual). The spring-post speaker terminals are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.
Power Specifications Note: The manufacturer has specified the maximum power handling of this speaker as 60 watts RMS (240 W Peak). Klipsch has also published a recommended amplifier power specification as 110 watts. For the purpose of matching the speaker with the best amplifier, Crutchfield is listing the power specification as 110 watts.
Installation: The speaker can be installed in new or existing construction. It can be mounted vertically or horizontally. It requires a cutout of 6.5" (w) x 16.4375" (h), with a mounting depth of 3.25". For new construction, purchase of the IK-502-W installation kit (714IK502W) is highly recommended. For existing construction, the speaker should be installed in drywall at least 3/8" thick. A cardboard template is included to assist you in making the cutout.
IR Knockout: A 1/2" diameter knockout panel is provided in the lower left hand corner of the speaker frame for installing an IR sensor.
