New And Improved
Now in its fifth generation, Reference II speakers boast enhanced features, including re-engineered drivers and a new crossover system, to capture your attention and excite your emotions. In addition to the improved sound quality, the look of “big sound” has been redefined throughout the line with sophisticated cabinetry, refreshed logos and rounded feet.
Four Laws Of The Klipsch Universe
Beginning in 1946, company founder, Paul W. Klipsch believed four principles to be the foundation for great sound. Together, these four design principles—high efficiency with low distortion, controlled directivity, flat frequency response, and wide dynamic range—have and always will be the foundation for our stunningly powerful and precise sound.
A smart balance of performance and value
Klipsch RC-52 delivers robust, lifelike center channel sound. Using patented Klipsch speaker technology, it lends sonic realism and presence to the action on screen, letting you hear every word, every detail of your favorite movies. Whether you place this speaker above or below your TV’s screen, you can use the included adjustable foot to tilt and aim the speaker precisely at your listening position for the best possible sound.
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 Klipsch RC-52 also uses newly machined, light-yet-rigid Cerametallic woofers that produce smoother mids and tighter bass. The specially treated aluminum in the cones helps to dampen unwanted vibrations and reduce distortion, while an integrated dustcap gives them a cleaner look and adds stability. And the rigid, braced cabinet comes in a handsome woodgrain vinyl finish.
