Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-500C Center Channel Speaker

Product Description

Anchor your Klipsch surround system

If you’re planning a Klipsch Reference Premiere home theater, consider the RP-500C as your system’s all-important center channel. It features two 5-1/4″ spun-copper woofers for punchy bass and dynamic midrange, and Klipsch’s signature 1″ horn-loaded tweeter for exceptionally accurate dialogue and center-stage sound effects.

The RP-500C is an excellent choice for small- or medium-sized rooms where you want to be drawn directly into the action unfolding in front of you.

Hybrid horn technology for dynamic performance

Horn technology is one of Klipsch’s long-standing hallmarks. Flared openings in the speaker cabinet project sound waves toward your listening area and prevent them from simply spilling out in all directions. This design reduces reflections that can color the sound, and boosts dynamics and efficiency for powerful, “front row” sound that remains crystal-clear at all volume levels.

Klipsch’s Tractrix® horn features a circular throat around an advanced titanium diaphragm tweeter that transitions into a square 90º x 90º mouth. This unique shape provides a cleaner, more efficient transition of sound waves into your listening space. The result is a wide listening “sweet spot” with precise placement of instruments and vocals.

A horn that enhances bass, too

Take a look at the back of the RP-500C and you’ll find that instead of the conventional round port tube found on many speakers, Klipsch uses a Tractrix horn-shaped opening for smoother, more efficient airflow in and out of the cabinet. The resulting decrease in air turbulence makes for cleaner, more powerful bass with reduced port noise and low-frequency distortion.

Because this speaker is rear-ported, I recommend pulling it away from your wall to give it room to “breathe.”
