Enjoy great sound throughout your house with Klipsch® R-2650-W II wall-mount speakers. Their high-tech design and solid construction deliver ear-pleasing results for movies or music. Use them as surround sound speakers in an all-Klipsch home theater, or install them in pairs for stereo listening with your multi-room audio system. Either way, you'll experience accurate Klipsch sound without the clutter of conventional speakers.
TheThe R-2650-W II pairs a 1" silk dome tweeter with a 6-1/2" woofer. The tweeter is cupped in a conical waveguide that reduces sonic reflections off your walls, resulting in clean, low-distortion sound
The R-2650-W II keeps a low profile with its SlimTrim™ grille. The visible frame size is reduced by 90% and grille depth is reduced by 80% over previous designs, for a nearly flush finish that blends in beautifully. The paintable, aluminum magnetic grille attaches securely with ease to virtually eliminate resonant distortion.
An optional in-wall bracket is recommended for installing the R-2650-W II in new construction.
Average Customer Review(s):
Superb sound though in wall
Purchased two of these to replace some (admittedly ill-chosen) Klipsch Quintet speakers that I had wall-mounted for my basement HT setup. We do not use the basement often, so a high-dollar setup was not necessary, but I still wanted to maintain the crisp sound that Klipsch is known for. These do not disappoint. While audiophiles and hard-core HT users may want something nicer, these fit the bill for the average consumer who wants great sound without breaking the bank.

High Efficiency: The high-efficiency design of the Klipsch in-wall speakers allows you to get much more output than most in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Due to the long speaker wire runs that are common in whole-house audio systems, the power coming from the amplifier is significantly reduced by the time it reaches the speakers. The 91dB efficiency of this speaker means it will play much louder at low power than other less-efficient speakers.
Two-Way Design: The Klipsch R-2650-W II uses a high-quality 1" silk dome tweeter combined with a 6.5" polypropylene woofer in a 2-way design.
ABS Basket/Frame: The R-2650-W II has a sturdy ABS basket and frame. The frame can be painted to match any decor.
SlimTrim Magnetic Grille: With an all new grille, the visible frame size is reduced by 90% and grille depth is reduced by 80% over the previous design, for a more edge-to-edge consistent look that blends in with the wall more attractively. The new aluminum, paintable, magnetic grille attaches tightly and securely with ease to virtually eliminate resonant distortion.
Speaker Terminals: The Klipsch R-2650-W II in-wall speaker features two spring-clip terminals which will accept bare speaker wire (up to 12-AWG) or pin-connectors. The spring-clip 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 50 watts RMS (200 W Peak). Klipsch has also published a recommended amplifier power specification as 100 watts.
New Or Pre-Existing Installation: The speaker can be installed in new or existing construction. It requires a cutout of 7.9375" (w) x 13.0625" (h), with a mounting depth of 3.6875". For new construction, purchase of the IK-650-W installation kit (714IK650W, sold separately) 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.
