Klipsch RP-440D SB
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Sounds great so far!
I love the rich, distinct sound that Klipsch's Reference Premiere speakers are known for. So I was stoked when I saw their latest home theater offering — a wall-mountable sound bar that packs their signature sound into a sleek, space-saving speaker. This passive sound bar takes the place of the front three speakers in a traditional home theater setup. Left, center, and right channels are combined into a single speaker that mounts to your wall or sits on the included table-top stand.
The RP-440D SB gets its power from a home theater receiver (required for operation). This bar is a great option for folks who want a simple, clean-looking system that delivers an immersive sound experience.
Wall-mount the Klipsch RP-440D SB under your TV, or place it on top of your entertainment cabinet using the included glass base (shown with magnetic grille removed).
Klipsch famously mounts their tweeters inside of a flared opening, or horn. This helps control the way sound waves are projected into your room, for crisp, focused highs. The 90° x 90° Tractrix® horns used in this sound bar help deliver a wide "sweet spot," along with precise placement of special effects and dialogue. The RP-440D SB teams three of its horn-loaded 1" tweeters with four 3-1/2" woofers for an expansive front soundstage.
Sounds great so far!

3-Channel Passive LCR Soundbar Speaker: The Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-440D SB is a 3-channel passive LCR soundbar speaker. It combines the three front channels (Left/Center/Right) into a single speaker cabinet - featuring three horn-loaded 1" titanium dome Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) tweeters and four 3.5" copper-spun Cerametallic woofers.
Horn-Loaded Tweeter: The Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-440D SB features proprietary Tractrix Horn technology coupled with a Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) titanium tweeter to produce clean, natural high frequencies.
Spun-Copper Cerametallic Woofers: The four 3.5" woofers of the RP-440D SB passive soundbar speaker features Klipsch's distinctive, spun-copper 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 woofers also employ a rubber surround for added durability.
Bass Reflex Enclosure: The horn-loaded tweeters and spun-copper Cerametallic woofers are housed in a bass reflex enclosure with three down-firing ports for greater efficiency and better bass performance. The speaker enclosure is made of ABS and features a matte black painted finish.
Wrap-Around Magnetic Grille: The Klipsch Reference Premiere series RP-440D SB passive soundbar speaker comes with a removable, wrap-around cloth magnetic grille which easily snaps into place over the ABS enclosure.
Spring-Post Terminals: The RP-440D SB is equipped with a set of spring-post terminals for each channel to connect to your AV receiver's Front Left, Front Right, and Center speaker output terminals. These spring-post terminals will accept bare speaker wire from 16AWG to 12AWG. Due to the position of the spring-post terminals they will not accept banana plugs or pin-connectors.
Mounting Options: The RP-440D SB passive soundbar speaker can be mounted horizontally on a wall or table-top. The included wall-bracket and dual four-way keyhole slots allow for easy, tight-to-the-wall mounting (mounting screws not included). The included glass base provides a table-top solution for placing the speaker on a stand, table, or shelf (the base attaches to the speaker using the two included screws).

Kilipsch quality and space saving design of the sound bar with center, right & left channel in one bar [ David R. Jan 13, 2018 ]
If you only connect the center channel speaker wire, only the center channel drivers (in the middle) of the Klipsch will produce sound. The outer two 3.5" midbass drivers and tweeters will be silent. [ Ryan Feb 07, 2018 ] Staff
