Add immersive realism to your home theater with this pair of Reference Premiere RP-500SA II Two-Way Dolby Atmos Elevation/Surround Speakers from Klipsch in an inviting ebony finish. These versatile speakers can be mounted to a wall, and used as height or surround speakers, or placed on top of Atmos-compatible floorstanding speakers to be used as up-firing surrounds as part of a Dolby Atmos system. Either way, the angled design helps to ensure ambient environmental effects fill the room to draw you further into what you’re watching.
The RP-500SA II are second-generation speakers that improve on the original by expanding the soundstage and delivering more accurate directivity of the sound it produces. They can each handle up to 70W RMS or 300W peak. The improved acoustics are thanks to a larger Tractrix horn as part of their 1″ titanium LTS vented tweeters, and 70% larger voice coils in each of their 5.25″ Cerametallic cone woofers.
The integrated switchable crossover lets you change between regular surround and Atmos modes, optimizing its performance based on your existing speaker setup.
90 x 90° Silicon Composite Hybrid Tractrix Horn
Klipsch’s proprietary Tractrix geometry in the horn is specifically crafted to efficiently transfer the high frequencies of the tweeters to the listener. This second-generation Tractrix horn is larger for better directivity and a wider overall soundstage. The Tractrix horn can accomplish this level of audio fidelity and smooth frequency response by being combined with a phase plug and a compressed molded silicon face.
LTS Titanium Diaphragm Tweeters
Part of Klipsch’s Reference line, the LTS (Linear Travel Suspension) works to minimize distortion for more detailed audio reproduction.
Vented Tweeter Design
The housing of the tweeters in this pair of surround speakers clarifies the high-frequency signal by reducing standing waves that would otherwise create unwanted harmonics.
Another signature aspect of Klipsch’s Reference Premiere speakers are the Cerametallic woofers. These surround speakers are each equipped with a single 5.25″ woofer, and the Cerametallic construction keeps it lightweight, yet rigid, to both maximize acoustic efficiency and minimize distortion. In the second-generation, voice coils are 70% larger in diameter to ensure flawless reproduction with better power handling, cone control, and linearity. The addition of aluminum shorting rings adds to the improved power handling and lower distortion, while the motor structure itself improves the transit response and adds more control with increased speed and improved accuracy.
Improved Input Panel
The RP-500SA II features audiophile-grade wiring and easily accessible aluminum binding posts for any connection type.
Klipsch uses internally braced, furniture-grade MDF for a durable and attractive appearance. The ebony vinyl finish includes satin-painted baffles that have a scratch-resistant coating.
You have the option of exposing the copper-colored woofer and tweeter or covering them up with a discrete speaker grille. The grille magnetically attaches to the front of the RP-500SA
