Klipsch Design Philosophy: The Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-140S
delivers on Klipsch's speaker design philosophy; low distortion, high
efficiency, flat frequency response, broad dynamic range, and controlled
Tractrix Horn Technology: Klipsch Tractrix Horn technology allows the
RP-140SA speaker to meet the directivity and sensitivity specifications that
Dolby requires for Dolby Atmos enabled speakers. This is what has allowed
Klipsch to produce its unique two-way speaker and horn-loaded design, in a
Dolby Atmos enabled speaker.
Horn-Loaded Tweeter: The Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-140SA
features proprietary Hybrid Tractrix Horn technology coupled with a Linear Travel
Suspension (LTS) titanium tweeter to produce the most effective release of sound
waves for clean, natural listening experiences. The horn's outer layer is
silicone-based rubber, which eliminates resonance of the horn housing, improving
detail and resolution. The LTS tweeter ensures minimized distortion for
enhanced, detailed performance.
- 90° x 90° Hybrid Tractrix Horn: A redesigned Tractrix Horn utilizes a
circular horn throat paired to a square horn mouth to further improve
high-frequency response and extension, while enhancing imaging and dynamics.
The compressed molded rubber construction adds high frequency damping to
reduce harshness and improve detail. This creates the cleanest, most natural
sound possible. These 90° x 90° Hybrid Tractrix
Horns provide a wider sweet spot while maintaining controlled directivity of
- LTS Tweeter: Behind the Tractrix Horn lies a 1"
titanium tweeter with a linear travel suspension for open, natural, sound.
The Linear Travel Suspension minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed
Cerametallic Woofer: The 3.5" woofer of the RP-140SA
loudspeaker features Klipsch's distinctive, copper-colored Cerametallic material.
Made with an anodized aluminum, this cone is strong and dent resistant. The
anodizing process converts its inner and outer surfaces to ceramic. The outcome
is a rigid cone with superb damping characteristics that will not flex or
resonate at frequencies within the woofer's operating range. The woofer also
employs a rubber surround for added durability. A design that when paired with
the Tractrix Horn-loaded LTS tweeter combines for incredible high efficiency.
Crossover Network: The Klipsch RP-140SA speaker's crossover
network is constructed using extremely high-quality components including
top-of-the-line internal wiring, polyester film-type capacitors and an air-core
inductor to ensure signal purity and proper driver integration. The speaker's
enhanced crossover frequencies offer smoother on-axis and off-axis integration.
Sealed MDF Enclosure: The Klipsch RP-140SA employs an
acoustic suspension enclosure for tight accurate bass. The sealed enclosure
features a MDF cabinet finished with a premium wood-grain polymer veneer and a
polymer front baffle. The speaker's rigid cabinet offers improved internal
cross-bracing to minimize panel vibrations that can color sound.
Magnetic Grille: The Dolby Atmos enabled loudspeaker
features a removable magnetic low-diffraction grille which easily snaps into
place over its polymer front baffle.
Binding Posts: The Klipsch Reference Premiere series
RP-140SA is equipped with sturdy binding posts to ensure a secure connection to
many types of cable and connectors. The binding post terminals will accept
