Our take on the Klipsch CP6

If you want great sound by the patio or pool, but aren't crazy about the idea of hanging big speakers from the eaves, a smaller speaker, like the Klipsch CP6, may be just the ticket. The CP6 keeps a low profile, is designed to mount vertically or horizontally, and the V-shaped rear of the cabinet can fit right into a corner. The speaker can even be painted to match your trim.

Great looks and great sound

If you want great sound by the patio or pool, but aren't crazy about the idea of hanging big speakers from the eaves, a smaller speaker, like the Klipsch CP6, may be just the ticket. The CP6 keeps a low profile, is designed to mount vertically or horizontally, and the V-shaped rear of the cabinet can fit right into a corner. The speaker can even be painted to match your trim.

A 5-1/4" long-throw woofer is paired with Klipsch's 3/4" Tractrix® horn in each speaker to produce great full-range sound without taking up too much space. Thanks to a weather-resistant design, the CP6 is well-suited to bringing your tunes outdoors when the weather turns sunny.

Product Research


Multi-Purpose Speaker: The Klipsch CP-6 loudspeakers are designed to both withstand the rigors of outdoor use, while also complimenting any indoor décor as either a stereo pair or surround speakers in a home theater system. Built to either withstand the rigors of outdoor use or to provide a highly aesthetic look that blends perfectly into any indoor décor, the Klipsch Compact Performance Series CP-6 speakers provide a unique, multifunctional sound solution for any home.

Two-Way Speaker Design: The Klipsch CP-6 employs exclusive Tractrix Horn technology with a premium, long-throw woofer for an amazing full-range sound.

  • Horn-Loaded Dome Tweeter: Each CP-6 speaker features a 0.75" aluminum dome tweeter coupled to a Tractrix Horn for smoother high-end response with greater extension, enhanced imaging, and more powerful dynamics. The exclusive Klipsch 90°x 90° Tractrix Horn not only provides controlled coverage, reducing reflected sound which harms overall sound quality, but also gives you more sound output from the same amount of power input compared to other designs.
  • IMG Woofer: Each CP-6 loudspeaker features a 5.25" IMG (injected-molded graphite) woofer for detailed midrange and punch midbass response. The woofers also employ a rubber surround for added durability.

Dual Ports: Two front-firing ports are used for greater efficiency and bigger bass response.

Weather Resistant Cabinet: The Klipsch CP-6 loudspeakers feature an anti-resonant, weather resistant, mineral-filled cabinet. The speaker also include weather resistant, powder-coated aluminum grilles (logos rotate). Both the cabinets and grilles are paintable.

Speaker Terminals: The two speaker screw-terminals are accessible from the speaker's front baffle; a rubber terminal protects the screw-terminals. Push the speaker wire through the middle channel on the speaker's back cabinet until its pushed through to the speaker's front baffle, and then attach the speaker wire to the screw-terminals using a philips-head screwdriver.

Mounting Options: The included wall-brackets let you mount the CP-6 speaker horizontal or vertical against a wall. The speaker's V-shaped profile even allows you to tuck the speaker into a corner using the included wall-brackets. The solid wall-mount bracket system assures a fast, easy, one-screwdriver installation. There are two keyhole slots on back of the wall-bracket (mounting screws not included). Once installed, you can adjust the angle of the speaker without any tools. The CP Series speakers also have two 1/4"-20 threaded inserts for attaching 3rd party wall-brackets (sold separately). In addition, the CP-6 multipurpose speaker can be simply placed on a shelf or stand.

Note: The CP-6 loudspeaker measures 7" (w) x 11" (h) x 6.875" (d) with the wall-bracket attached.

3 questions already asked

These speakers are not amplified. [ Ian  Sep 13, 2016 ]
These are not amplified speakers, they do require an external amplifier. They are very efficient and do not require a large amp to sound fantastic. [ CHRISTOPHER  Sep 12, 2016 ]
No [ Michael  Sep 12, 2016 ]
No - they are not amplified. I installed them in-line with a Russound ALTX-2D In Wall Volume Control that works well. [ Robert  Sep 12, 2016 ]
On amplified, no volume control. Regular speakers. [ prodogg  Sep 12, 2016 ]
They are not amplified. [ CLARENCE  Sep 12, 2016 ]
no, they are not amplified [ Donald  Sep 12, 2016 ]
I was not able to find any mention of a design change for this speaker on our site or Yamaha's site. I hate to hear that the terminals are giving you trouble. If you purchased them from us, I recommend giving our technical support a call to see if anything can be done to remedy that terminal issue. We include their number on the invoice that comes with the order. If you don't have that handy, you can call us on 1-800-324-9695 to look up that order and then connect you with our technical support. Either way, I am glad you are enjoying their sound. My Bio: [ Paul  May 07, 2016 ]  Staff
Yes, that's correct. It only pivots on one axis. [ Robert  Apr 28, 2016 ]
