Klipsch Upgrades its Flagship Reference Speakers Line
Renowned audio brand Klipsch announced upgrades to its flagship Reference speakers, which included the debut of the RF-7 III floorstanding speaker and the RC-64 III center channel speaker. The new entrants into the Reference line are upgrades over the company’s Reference II series, and represent the “next generation” of Klipsch sound.
Klipsch, a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation, said that the RF-7 III and RC-64 III speakers are “infused with the latest technological audio advancements” for stronger and more accurate sound performance. Part of that new technology includes a new tweeter with a 1-and-¾-inch titanium compression driver and an enhanced design that improves the sound performance at higher frequencies.
“A new Tractrix horn further improves high-frequency response and extension, while enhancing imaging and dynamics,” Klipsch explained in a press release. “Proprietary Cerametallic woofers minimize distortion, and when paired with the Tractrix horn, provides ultra-high sensitivity and the highest efficiency in its class.”
As far as the design of the new Reference speakers, both include enhancements and upgraded materials. They feature heavy-duty cast aluminum frame woofers that are designed to eliminate resonance. And the cabinets are made from furniture-grade wood veneers. They come in black ash, cherry, and walnut.
“These speakers have earned the nickname ‘fire-breathing monsters’ for a reason,” Kerry Geist, product manager at Klipsch Group, said in the statement. “They are the best sounding audiophile speaker at this price point.”
