Klipsch KI-172-SMA-II Black 8″ 70 Volt Compact Commercial Multi-Angle 2-Way Loudspeaker With 8 Ohms – Each
The Klipsch KI-172-SMA-II is Priced and Sold as Each, For a Pair Add Two to Your Cart.
The Klipsch KI-172-SMA-II is a compact, two-way, high performance loudspeaker with sides slanted at 65° and 45°. Designed to be installed where placement at an angle is required and space is limited, the Klipsch KI-172-SMA-II is perfect for wall, ceiling or under-balcony mounting in theaters, churches, schools and clubs, or for slanted floor or shelf monitor use near altars and podiums, or in board and meeting rooms.
The 3/4” MDF enclosure uses dado “lock-joint” and rabbet construction on CNC-fabricated panels to ensure resonance-free response and long-term reliability. The internal high-current passive crossover features the proprietary high-power thermal overload KLIP- circuit, which limits potential damage to the high-frequency driver. Mounting capabilities include top and bottom attachments for the optional SB-102 “U”-shaped bracket.
The Klipsch KI-172-SMA-II compact high power loudspeaker system shall include an 8″ (203.2mm) K-8-E low-frequency transducer utilizing a 1.5″ (38.1mm) voice coil and 20-ounce (622g) magnet, and a K-103-TI-KP 1″ (25.4mm) titanium diaphragm high-frequency, five-ounce (155.5g) magnet compression driver mounted on a 90˚ X 90˚ heavy-duty, injection-molded, modified Tractrix Horn. Signal shall be applied to the transducers via a passive, internal frequency dividing network, incorporating a KLIP-circuit for signal overload protection of the high-frequency transducer. The enclosure tuning shall be of a vented design.
Klipsch KI-172-SMA-II frequency response shall be 70Hz to 17kHz, ±4dB, with the -10dB point at 59Hz, measured at three meters, half-space anechoic. The dispersion angle shall be 90˚ X 90˚ nominal (refer to graph). Directivity shall be 7dB (refer to graph). Sensitivity shall be 96dB SPL, measured at one meter, half-space anechoic, with a 2.83V input. Klipsch KI-172-SMA-II power handling shall be 100 watts (21.2 volts), to AES standards, continuous pink noise, 50Hz to 10kHz, 6dB peaks. Maximum continuous output at one meter shall be 113dB SPL. Nominal impedance shall be 8 ohms, with 4.5 ohms minimum at 8.5kHz. The internal passive crossover frequency shall be 3kHz, with slopes of 12dB/octave for the low frequency and 18dB/octave for the high frequency. Full-range connections shall be made via standard five-way binding posts, enabling direct stripped wire, lug, pin, single or dual banana plug interface.
The enclosure panels shall be CNC-fabricated, 3/4″ furniture grade plywood, assembled utilizing rabbet and dado joinery. Dimensions for the enclosure shall be 18.813″ (47.785cm) high by 11.25″ (28.575cm) deep by 11.313″ (28.735cm) wide in an asymmetrical trapezoidal shape, with side panels angled at 65˚ and 45˚. Net weight shall be 22 lbs. (9.988kg). The top and bottom panels shall be radiused, with a metal perforated grille for structural integrity and protection of the transducers from impact and tampering.
Enclosure mounting shall be via internal top and bottom T-nuts for the accessory Klipsch SB-102 “U”-shaped bracket. The enclosure shall be coated with lacquer-based primer and lacquer-based texture, with a black or white finish. The enclosure shall also be available unfinished in raw plywood. The enclosure is pre-drilled for Omnimount 100 Series adjustable brackets.
