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 94dB efficiency of this speaker
means it will play much louder at low power than other less-efficient speakers.
2-Way Speaker System: The R-5800-W II uses a premium 1"
Titanium compression driver (tweeter) mated to an exclusive Tractrix Horn,
combined with a large 8" Cerametallic woofer in a 2-way design.
- Tweeter: The 1" Titanium dome compression tweeter is
mated 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 8" Cerametallic woofer
utilizes solid Aluminum diaphragms, anodized to add stiffness and provide
perfect damping, and have a new hi-tech look that also delivers increased
rigidity for even tighter, more defined bass. The new integrated dust caps
further strengthen the cones and help ventilate the voice coils 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/Midbass Attenuation Switches: 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-5800-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.
New or Pre-Existing Installation: The in-wall speaker can be
installed in new or existing construction. It requires a cutout diameter of
9.125" wide x 14.6875" high, with a mounting depth of 3.9375". A cardboard
template is supplied to measure cutout opening. For existing construction, the
speaker should be installed in drywall (or other mounting surfaces) at least
3/8" thick. The Klipsch in-wall speaker features four sure-grip mounting dogs
(clamps) that provide even pressure against drywall for long-term installation
reliability. For new construction, purchase of the IK-800-W installation kit (714IK800W,
sold separately) is highly recommended.
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.
