90° x 90° Hybird Tractrix Horns: 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 the sound.
LTS Tweeters: Behind each 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 performance.
Cerametallic Woofers: The four 4" woofers of the RP-440C
center-channel loudspeaker feature 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
4" woofers also employ a rubber surround for added durability.
Crossover Network: The Klipsch RP-440C center-channel 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 (500/1500Hz) offer smoother on-axis and
Bass Reflex MDF Enclosure: The Klipsch RP-440C employs a
bass reflex enclosure with a rear-firing Tractrix port for greater efficiency and bigger bass response.
Utilizing Tractrix geometry, the all new Reference Premiere bass port allows for
the most efficient, fastest air transfer from the cabinet for a clean,
powerful low frequency response. The
ported 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
Magnetic Grille: The center-channel 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-440C
is equipped with sturdy binding posts to ensure a secure connection to many
types of cable and connectors. The binding post terminals will accept banana
plugs (single only), pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and bare wire.
Placement: The RP-440C should be centered directly above or
below your video screen. If necessary, you can place the speaker on an optional
floor stand in front of and below the screen that elevates it to the correct
height. Ideally, however, the speaker's front baffle should be flush with the
front of the screen.
Rubber Feet: The center channel speaker comes with four
self-adhesive rubber feet to secure the speaker in place and prevent any damage
to your stand's or shelf's surface. The rubber feet add approximately 0.125" to the
height of each speaker.
