Klipsch KL-7800-THX Ultra 2 Series In-Wall Speaker x3
Engineered to bring real cinema sound to the comforts of home without taking up valuable floor space, the Klipsch KL-7800-THX in-wall speaker offers the ultimate performance in a hidden solution loudspeaker. It is designed for left, center or right channel use or wherever a monopole speaker is needed.
THX Ultra2 Certification
Because of its THX Ultra2 certification, the KL-7800-THX works well with multichannel movie and music presentations playing up to reference levels in rooms of 3,000 cubic feet or larger.
It employs an 8″ aluminum woofer and a 1″ titanium dome compression driver mated to a square Tractrix Horn. The 8″ aluminum delivers rich, defined bass. The 1″ Titanium dome compression tweeter is mated to a 5″ square, pivoting Tractrix Horn, which disperses the sound 80° horizontally and 80° vertically into the room. The horn design dramatically increases efficiency by enabling the speaker to produce more output using less energy.
Integrated ABS Enclosure
Featuring an integrated back box enclosure, the KL-7800-THX’s response is both predictable and repeatable. Because this enclosure fits easily within the loudspeaker’s footprint, the KL-7800-THX can be installed into new or existing construction. The KL-7800-THX has a sturdy ABS frame assembly and a deluxe MDF baffle with brushed aluminum fascia. The frame and metal mesh grille can be painted to match any decor.
The in-wall speaker has a gold-plated pair of spring-loaded binding posts that can accept up to 12-gauge wire, single banana plugs, or pin connectors.
New or Pre-Existing Installation
The in-wall speaker can be installed in new or existing construction. It requires a cutout diameter of 10.0625″ wide x 19.0625″ high, with a mounting depth of 3.75″. A cardboard template is supplied to measure cutout opening. For existing construction, the speaker should be installed in drywall (or other mounting surfaces) at least 3/8″ thick. The Klipsch in-wall speaker features six sure-grip mounting dogs (clamps) that provide even pressure against drywall for long-term installation reliability. For new construction, purchase of the IK-800-W II installation kit (sold separately) is highly recommended.
