Klipsch Dramatically Upgrades Its Best-Selling Reference Speakers

May 12, 2022

Press Release

Klipsch®, a leading premium global audio company, is announcing the debut of its new ReferenceTM series loudspeakers. The company’s acclaimed Reference series loudspeakers have dominated living rooms for years. The new series features the most dramatic upgrades since the series’ inception, including many technologies derived from the award-winning Klipsch Reference Premiere series. The new Klipsch Reference series is comprised of 10 models — including Dolby Atmos® enabled loudspeakers — all infused with the latest technological audio advancements, as well as cosmetic and material upgrades.

Now in its seventh generation, the new Klipsch Reference loudspeaker series delivers even higher sound quality, precision, clarity and effortless power. A new, larger, edge-to-edge proprietary Tractrix® horn provides improved coverage, bandwidth and directivity control. New woofers made of spun-copper thermoformed crystal polymer (TCP) use steeper angling of cones for a smoother response and better crossover integration for improved accuracy and transparency.

Sleek cabinet designs exude modern elegance with enhanced cabinet bracing and features such as black scratch-resistant wood grain vinyl finish, metallic coated binding posts, and discrete Dolby Atmos connections that allow for easy and refined elevation loudspeaker integration.

The 10 new Klipsch Reference series models consist of three floorstanding loudspeakers (R-605FA Dolby Atmos enabled, R-800F and R-600F), two center channels (R-50C and R-30C), two bookshelf speakers (R-50M, R-40M), one Dolby Atmos elevation speaker that can also be used as a surround speaker (R-40SA), and two powered subwoofers (R-121SW and R-101SW).

Price points for the new Klipsch Reference series span U.S. MSRP price points ranging from $998-$1,798/pair of floorstanding loudspeakers, $299-$399/pair of bookshelf loudspeakers, $379-499/each for a center channel, $599/pair of surrounds, and $499-$599 for the subwoofers. They are available now in the U.S. at Best Buy, and select authorized retailers.
