Klipsch Debuts Next Gen Reference Speakers

Audio company Klipsch has unveiled its new next generation flagship Reference Speakers, the RF-7 III floor standing speaker and the RC-64 II centre channel.

Klipsch says the speakers are enhanced versions of the company’s acclaimed Reference II series, delivering hours of unrivaled high performance listening pleasure.  

The Klipsch Reference RF-7 III and RC-64 III speakers are infused with the latest technological audio advancements for ultra-sensitive, hard-hitting, accurate sound. The company was meticulous in selecting an ideal tweeter for the speakers before landing on the new 1¾” titanium compression driver with an enhanced phase plug geometry design that improves sound pressure linearity at high frequencies.  

Embedded in the speakers is a new Tractrix horn which the company says further improves high-frequency response and extension, while enhancing imaging and dynamics. Proprietary Cerametallic woofers minimise distortion, and when paired with the Tractrix horn, provides ultra-high sensitivity and the highest efficiency in its class.  

The modern design enhancements and upgraded materials used to build the Reference RF-7 III and RC-64 III speakers reinforce their solid performance. Both speakers feature heavy-duty cast aluminum frame woofers that eliminate resonance. Cabinets are made from furniture-grade wood veneers and come in black ash, cherry or walnut. Magnetic grilles complement the premium design experience. 

The Reference RF-7 III floorstanding speaker is equipped with a unique dual chambered enclosure design that allows two 10” drivers and ports to work independently of each other. This improves linearity, minimizes anomalies in the critical midrange frequencies; generating a very articulate soundstage. The speaker’s slanted riser base enhances the appearance of the speaker, while providing a slight upward angle to direct sound to the listener.  

The Reference RC-64 III center channel features four 6.5” woofers, while the sophisticated design of the 2 ½ way network crossover maintains wide and even sound distribution. listener hears the center channel information exactly as intended. 

 Kerry Geist, product manager at Klipsch Group says, “These speakers have earned the nickname ‘fire-breathing monsters’ for a reason. They are the best sounding audiophile speaker at this price point.”    

The Klipsch Reference RF-7 III retails for $8,490 per pair and the RC-64 III prices at $3,290 each, both available from Klipsch specialist retailers in the second quarter of 2018.
