Fill your living room or home theater with lifelike sound using this pair of Reference Premiere RP-502S Two-Way Surround Speakers from Klipsch in an attractive walnut finish. The bidirectional design and proprietary Klipsch WDST (Wide Dispersion Surround Technology), emits sound effects and ambient surround sound in multiple directions to accommodate almost any room size and handle less-than-ideal speaker placement. This second generation provide a larger soundstage and accurate directivity of sound thanks to 70% larger voice coils and a larger Tractrix horn. They can each handle up to 100W RMS or 400W peak through dual 1″ titanium LTS vented tweeters and dual 5.25″ Cerametallic cone woofers.
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 equipped with dual 5.25″ woofers and the Cerametallic construction keeps them 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 adds more control with increased speed and improved accuracy.
Improved Input Panel
The RP-502S 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 walnut 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-502S.
