Top-of-the-line Reference Series II floor-standing speaker
Experience all the power and emotion behind your favorite movies, concert discs, and music CDs with the Klipsch® RF-7 II. It's the flagship speaker of the Reference Series II line, and it uses patented Klipsch technology to deliver rich, dynamic sound with sparkling highs and thrilling, full-bodied bass. Add a pair to the RC-64 II center channel speaker to create a seamless, powerful front soundstage for your home theater that'll put you in the middle of your movie every single time. And this speaker looks as good as it sounds: it comes in a stunning, furniture-grade wood grain veneer.
Horn technology for "front row" sound
All Reference Series II speakers feature a redesigned version of Klipsch's famous horn-loaded tweeter. Because high-frequency sounds are more directional than bass frequencies, it's especially important to target them right toward your ears. Klipsch places their titanium tweeter inside a flared opening, known as a "horn," which disperses the highs evenly across your listening area in a 90°-wide, 60°-high pattern. With their Series II speakers, Klipsch has redesigned the shape and slope of their famous horn enclosure, so your movie soundtracks and music will sound more "open," with improved dynamics and efficiency. All in all, you can count on powerful, "front row" sound that's crystal-clear at all volume levels.
High-tech driver design
The RF-7 II uses two light-yet-rigid Cerametallic woofers with a folded edge to produce smooth mids and tight bass. The specially treated aluminum in the cones help to dampen unwanted vibrations and reduce distortion, while integrated dustcaps add stability. The RF-7 II also has dual five-way binding posts, giving you the option to bi-amp or bi-wire this speaker for the best possible performance.

Overview: The Klipsch Reference Series RF-7 II floor-standing loudspeaker delivers high-performance sound using Klipsch's advanced technologies and world-class materials. The Klipsch Reference RF-7 II employs dual 10.0-inch woofers and a 1.75-inch titanium diaphragm compression driver loaded with a square Tractrix Horn, inside a bass reflex enclosure. The Klipsch Reference Series floor-standing loudspeaker will bring out the power, detail, and emotion in your music, movies, or video games.
Highly-Efficient Design: The Klipsch RF-7 II utilizes a highly efficient design to produce more output using less power & energy for louder sound with less distortion. The RF-7 II is able to fill large rooms with outstanding, accurate, non-fatiguing sound that you can listen to for hours.
Tractrix Horn Tweeter: The Klipsch RF-7 II features a professional-grade 1.75-inch titanium-diaphragm compression driver inside a square Tractrix Horn for smoother high-end response with greater extension, enhanced imaging, and more powerful dynamics. The Tractrix Horn delivers a 90-degree wide by 60-degree high dispersion pattern for a broader sound-stage. Behind the horn lies a 1.75-inch titanium tweeter with a linear travel suspension for open, natural, sound.
Dual Woofers: The dual 10.0-inch woofers of the RF-7 II feature Klipsch's distinctive, copper-colored Cerametallic cones. Made with an anodized aluminum, these cones are strong and dent resistant. The anodizing process converts their 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 10.0-inch woofers also employ a rubber surround for added durability.
Crossover Network: For signal purity and perfect driver integration, the crossover on the RF-7 II features the finest components and Klipsch custom internal wiring.
Bass Reflex Enclosure: The dual 10.0-inch Cerametallic cone woofers and 1.75" titanium diaphragm compression driver are mounted in a Bass reflex enclosure which features dual rear-firing ports. The RF-7 II's rigid cabinet offers improved internal cross-bracing to minimize panel vibrations that can color sound and dual rear-firing ports to eliminate turbulence noise. A black metallic finished baffle around the horn mouth and dual woofers dramatically improve acoustics across the sonic range. The bass reflex enclosure features an MDF cabinet finished with a beautiful furniture-grade wood veneer.
Detachable Grille: The floor-standing loudspeaker features a removable grille which easily snaps into place over its cast-aluminum front baffle. The speaker can be used with or without its grille in place.
Dual Binding Posts: The speaker has two sets of binding posts connected by jumpers. Using the dual binding posts, you can bi-amp or bi-wire the speakers. The binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and bare wire.
Feet: The RF-7 II feature two integrated front-feet and two stabilizer rear-feet with rubber bottoms so you can safely place the speaker on your tile or hardwood floors. The Reference RF-7 II also comes supplied with a set of carpet spikes so you can place the speaker comfortably on your carpet. The supplied carpet spikes add approximately 1.0-inch to the height of the speaker. The carpet spikes screw in directly to the bottom of the floor-standing speaker's feet.
Placement: The Reference Series floor-standing loudspeaker is designed to perform well in a wide variety of locations but you will get the most out of the speaker by following these simple guidelines.
- The speaker requires a few inches of clearance behind it to allow its port to breathe and will sound best when they are at least two feet from any nearby walls.
- A pair of RF-7 II loudspeakers should be equal distance from the wall behind them. It also helps to have the left and right speakers at different distances from their nearest side walls. This sort of staggering helps smooth the bass range.
