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 93dB efficiency of this speaker
means it will play much louder at low power than other less-efficient speakers.
2-Way Speaker Design: The Klipsch R-5650-W II is equipped
with a premium 1" Titanium compression driver (tweeter) mated to an exclusive
Tractrix Horn, combined with a 6.5" Cerametallic woofer in a 2-way design.
- Tweeter: The 1" Titanium dome compression tweeter
to a 4" square, pivoting Tractrix
Horn, which disperses the sound 90° horizontally and 60° vertically into the
room. The horn design dramatically increases efficiency by
enabling the speaker to produce more output using less energy. The
horn-loaded tweeter allows you to point the sound to a specific location,
and has more controlled directivity than a conventional dome tweeter. The
addition of a Linear Travel Suspension to the tweeter increases high
frequency detail and smoothness.
- Woofer: The copper-colored 6.5" Cerametallic
woofer features a solid Aluminum diaphragm, anodized to add stiffness and
provide perfect damping, that delivers increased rigidity for even tighter,
more defined bass. The new integrated dust cap further strengthens the cone
and helps ventilate the voice coil for increased driver durability.
Speaker Terminals: The speaker has a gold-plated pair of spring-loaded
binding posts that can accept up to 12-gauge wire, single banana plugs,
or pin connectors.
Tweeter/Mid-bass Attenuation Switches: Treble and bass
contour switches allow sound customization in less-than-ideal speaker placement
positions. If the speaker is installed in an
acoustically bright room, such as a bathroom or a kitchen, you can attenuate the
tweeter by -3dB, using the Tweeter Attenuation Switch. If the speaker is located in a corner and produces too much bass, you should adjust the Mid-bass level switch (-3dB). Both switches are located on the front of the speaker.
ABS Basket/Frame: The R-5650-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.
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.
Installation: The speaker can be installed in new or
existing construction. It requires a cutout diameter of 8" wide x 13" high.
The mounting flange around the speaker measures 0.75" wide (0.875" wide with
new construction, purchase of the IK-650-W installation kit (714IK650W,
is highly recommended. For existing construction, the speaker should be
installed in drywall (or other mounting surfaces) at least 3/8" thick.
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.
