Reference Theater Pack: The Klipsch Reference Theater Pack includes
four matching satellite speakers, a center-channel speaker, a wireless powered
subwoofer with built-in 2.4GHz receiver, and an external wireless 2.4GHz transmitter. Speaker
wire is not included and sold separately (see Accessories tab).
4 Satellites & 1 Center Speaker: The four satellite speakers and one
center speaker incorporate Klipsch proprietary speaker technology - including
Tractrix horn-loaded LTS (Linear Travel Suspension) tweeters and Copper-Spun IMG
(Injection Molded Graphite) woofers. Each speaker also features a rear-firing
port, an acoustically transparent magnetic grille, and spring-posts terminals
(will accommodate bare wire from 18-14 gauge).
- 1" Horn-Loaded LTS Tweeter: Each satellite and
center-channel speaker utilizes Klipsch's exclusive Tractrix horn technology
mated with a 0.75" aluminum tweeter to deliver impressive high-frequency
response with greater extension, enhanced imaging and powerful dynamics -
creating a clean and natural sound. The square Tractrix Horn delivers
a 90° (w) x 90° (h) dispersion pattern for a broader sound-stage. Behind the
horn lies a 0.75" aluminum tweeter with a Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) to
minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performance.
- 3.5" Copper-Spun IMG Cones: Each satellite speaker features a
single 3.5" Copper-Spun IMG woofer, while the center-channel speaker
features two 3.5" Copper-Spun IMG woofers. Injection Molded Graphite (IMG) woofers are
exceptionally light, while being extremely rigid, providing remarkable low
frequency response, with minimal cone breakup and distortion.
Wireless Powered Sub: Klipsch powered subwoofers are designed to reproduce deep
bass and deliver the impact that makes your movies and music come alive. The
included wireless powered sub houses a powerful 8" copper-spun IMG (injected molded
graphite) down-firing woofer powered by an all-digital 50W RMS (150W Peak)
amplifier, plus features a down-firing port for dynamic bass performance. The copper-spun IMG woofer is exceptionally light while being extremely
rigid, providing remarkable low frequency response with minimal cone breakup and
distortion. The down-firing woofer gives you greater placement flexibility than
a down-firing woofer. The
wireless powered subwoofer features a durable MDF cabinet that is finished with a brushed
black polymer veneer. The MDF enclosure is rigid and protects against unwanted
vibration and distortion.
- Wireless & Wired Connections: The powered sub
features a built-in wireless receiver and comes with an external wireless
transmitter that plugs into your AV receiver's LFE output. If you prefer a
hardwired connection, the powered subwoofer is also equipped with a pair of
line-level RCA-type inputs to connect the sub to your receiver or integrated
- 2.4GHz Transmitter & Receiver:
Thanks to 2.4GHz wireless connectivity, your receiver can now send its
LFE audio signal to the powered sub wirelessly (no subwoofer cable required
between receiver and sub). Simply plug the included wireless transmitter
into your AV receiver's LFE output to wirelessly transmit the LFE signal to
the powered sub's built-in wireless receiver. Wireless range is approximately 30' at CD-quality
- LFE/Stereo Inputs: Most of today's AV receivers have a
line-level subwoofer output (LFE). If your receiver has an LFE output,
connect one end of a subwoofer cable (sold separately) to this output and
connect the other end of the cable into the powered subwoofer's line-level
input labeled "L/LFE". Set the powered sub's built-in crossover to "LFE"
with this type of connection. In absence of a subwoofer (LFE) output
on your receiver, as an alternative hookup, you can connect Left & Right
channel pre-amp outputs from the receiver to both the "L/LFE" and "R"
inputs on the powered subwoofer.
- Controls: The level control, low pass crossover, and
phase control allow you to blend the powered subwoofer's low-frequency tones
with your system's other speakers, as well as establish the ideal level of
bass. All controls are found on the rear-panel.
- Level Control: The level control adjusts the
subwoofer's volume relative to the rest of your home audio system. After
the sub's level control has been set, the volume control of your AV
receiver will be the volume control for both the Klipsch powered
subwoofer and your connected loudspeakers.
- Low Pass Crossover: The variable lowpass crossover
is adjustable from 40-120Hz. The crossover point chosen determines where
low bass frequencies are "handed-off" from the satellites and
to the Klipsch powered subwoofer.
- Phase Control: This control is used to acoustically
match the subwoofer's output to your main speakers. Select the position
either 0˚or 180˚ in which your subwoofer has more output at the
- Auto Power On/Off: The wireless powered subwoofer
will automatically turn On when it senses an audio signal. It will
automatically go into "Standby mode" after 15-20 minutes with no audio
signal. You can also choose to turn the powered sub On or Off manually
from the rear-switch on the back.
Notes: Both, the powered sub & wireless transmitter, will require AC
Satellites & Center Speaker Mounting Options: The
satellites and center speaker can simply be placed on stands, a table-top, or
shelf. An integrated rubber pad on the bottom of each speaker provides stability
and protection. Each satellite speaker also has a rear-mounted keyhole slot
(center channel has two keyhole slots) that can be used to mount the speakers on
a wall (mounting screws not included). In addition, there is a 1/4"-threaded
insert recessed 0.375" behind the keyhole slots to accommodate articulating
wall-mount brackets (sold separately - see Accessories tab).
Subwoofer Placement: For optimum performance, place your
subwoofer in a corner of the room on the same wall as your front channel
speakers. Please note that room placement can have a dramatic effect on the
performance of your powered subwoofer. Corner placement, as suggested above,
will increase the amount of bass output, while placing the subwoofer along the
middle of a wall, or out in the room will decrease the amount of bass output.
