Klipsch Reference R-41SA
Dolby Atmos® enabled add-on speakers
Our take on the Klipsch Reference R-41SA by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
Take your Klipsch home theater to a higher level
Maybe you've heard about Dolby Atmos. It's an expanded type of surround sound that enhances your movie soundtracks by accurately positioning sounds all around you — including above you. If you've got Reference tower speakers, the add-on R-41SA pair lets you add "height" sound effects to movie night.
How do they work?
Each R-14SA speaker has a 4" woofer and a horn-loaded tweeter on its top baffle. These drivers are angled to reflect sound off of your ceiling and back down to your listening position. These compact add-on modules sit right on top of your existing Reference speakers. Use a pair with your front speakers for a "5.1.2" system. With a compatible receiver, you can even add another pair to the rear surround speakers for an even more enveloping experience.
The R-41SA can also be wall-mounted for use as regular surround speakers.
Does your receiver have what it takes?
You'll need a home theater receiver with Dolby Atmos in order to get enhanced surround sound with these speakers.

Why did you buy this?
I don't leave many comments, but the team here at Crutchfield is a rare combiination of expertise and frindliness you just don't see many places anymore. Drummer helped me today, but I am confident after several purchases now the whole company has the same helpful attitude - and it seems genuine, not some phony mandated customer policy they are forced to follow - Crutchfield is the real deal! As far as the speakers, they match the rest of my system and Klipsch quality is also the real deal! [ David Sep 17, 2018 ]
I have all Klipsh speakers and think they have exceptional sound. These speakers will sit atop my L & R floor speakers and enable me to have great sound without a complicated front height installation with either wires, or trying to route wires thru walls. [ James Sep 15, 2018 ]
