- General Details
The Klipsch RP-8000F floorstanding speaker delivers incredible cinematic sound by leveraging our proprietary Tractrix® horn-loaded technology and dual 8″ copper-spun Cerametallic™ woofers.
90° x 90° SILICON COMPOSITE HYBRID TRACTRIX® HORN
Horn loading maximises efficiently and increases detail while focusing high
frequencies towards the listening area. Proprietary Tractrix® geometry provides the
most efficient transfer of high frequency waves into the listening area. The phase
plug and compressed moulded silicon face ensure smooth frequency response. When
combined, the cleanest, most natural sound possible is created.
LINEAR TRAVEL SUSPENSION (LTS) TITANIUM DIAPHRAGM TWEETER
The exclusive Linear Travel Suspension minimises distortion for enhanced, detailed
performance. LTS tweeters are a hallmark of previous Reference lines, making it a
core component of some of the best speakers in the world.
VENTED TWEETER DESIGN
The new vented tweeter housing reduces standing waves that create unwanted
harmonics, resulting in enhanced detail and clarity in high frequency reproduction.
SPUN COPPER CERAMETALLIC WOOFERS
A signature feature on the Reference Premiere series, Cerametallic™ woofers are
exceptionally rigid and lightweight for minimal distortion and maximum efficiency.
When paired with the Tractrix horn-loaded LTS tweeter, it provides the highest
speaker efficiency in its class.
Utilising Tractrix geometry, the Reference Premiere ports allow for the most
efficient, fastest air transfer from the cabinet, which reduces port noise for punchier
low frequencies. Klipsch Tractrix ports have custom designed inner flares that help
reduce air turbulence entering the port. Less turbulent air helps reduce port noise
for cleaner, more powerful bass.
BI-WIRING / BI-AMPING CAPABILITY
Dual input terminals for bi-wiring / bi-amping capabilities. Bi-wiring separates high
and low frequency current into separate speaker cables, reducing inter-modulation
distortion, for clearer mid-range. Bi-amping allows for customisation using outboard
crossovers when using separate amplifiers.
FURNITURE GRADE MATERIALS AND FINISHES
Finishes include ebony vinyl, walnut vinyl and piano gloss. Ebony and walnut models
boast satin painted baffles with a scratch resistant finish, while the premium piano
gloss cabinet is hand-sanded for a clear, mirror-like finish. The mirror-life piano gloss
finish is seamless due to the meticulous hand sanded and hand polished process.
CAST ALUMINUM FEET
Provides a more modern look with less resonance than MDF or ABS plastic. It is
mechanically designed to minimise surface area in contact with floor, decoupling the
speaker for faster, tighter low frequencies and more detail.
STRONG, FLEXIBLE, REMOVABLE GRILLE
Attaches magnetically for an elegant transition from powerful showstopper to
discrete performance piece.
Copper anodised trim rings, cast aluminium feet, satin painted baffles and a
laser etched logo treatment give the Reference Premiere II series a modern,
HYBRID TRACTRIX® HORN TECHNOLOGY
Klipsch proprietary Tractrix® horn loading technology ensures high-frequency energy of the RP-8000F floorstanding speaker is aimed directly at the listener and reduces unwanted, artificial reverb caused by indirect sound bouncing off walls – meaning you experience the most clear, detailed, lifelike sound possible.
Klipsch Reference Premiere series speakers feature a compressed moulded silicon face that’s matted to the 90×90 Tractrix horn to reduces horn resonance for a smoother frequency response. Klipsch computer modelled phase plugs acts as a mechanical filter to further ensure a smooth, flat frequency response while protecting the tweeter from damage.
ALL-NEW VENTED TWEETER
A vented tweeter design reduces standing waves behind the tweeter diaphragm for a smoother high frequency reproduction.
The titanium tweeter diaphragm’s light weight yet rigid composition exceeds the performance of aluminium, polymer or silk tweeters.
Klipsch award-winning Linear Travel Suspension technology leverages a piston motion of the titanium diaphragm that lowers distortion and delivers real-to-life sound.
A ceramic magnet housing provides premium performance, Klipsch Reference Premiere tweeters set the standard in acoustic reproduction.
Klipsch Proprietary Cerametallic™ woofers are the RP-8000F floorstanding speaker signature statement for both sound and aesthetics. This extremely light, rigid materials holds its shape while being able to deliver lower frequencies with maximum efficiency.
Klipsch Cerametallic™ cones are matted to a dual-layer, copper-wound voice coil for exceptional conductivity.
Reference Premiere woofers are housed in a non-resonating, stamped-steel basket that’s secured to a large magnet motor for exceptional efficiency and low distortion, and matched to our horn-loaded tweeters for optimal acoustic execution.
TRACTRIX® PORT + DUAL TERMINALS
The rear Tractrix port is perfectly matched to the cabinet and woofers, creating ideal airflow with minimal distortion or turbulence even at the lowest frequencies.
The RP-8000F floorstanding speaker features dual input terminals so you can bi-wire or bi-amp your speakers for a custom, high-performance experience.
FINISHED TO PERFECTION
The RP-8000F ebony and walnut finishes boast satin painted baffles with a scratch resistant design. The cast aluminium feet provides a modern look with less resonance than MDF or ABS plastic. It is mechanically designed to minimise surface area in contact with the floor, decoupling the speaker for faster, tighter low frequencies and more detail.
