New Horn and Grille
Klipsch redesigned the Tractrix® horn from a 60×90 horn to a 90×90 horn for a wider dispersion area. This square horn mouth is paired with a circular horn throat for enhanced sound staging, while maintaining the dynamic, powerful sound of a Klipsch speaker. Strong, flexible grilles magnetically detach revealing a clean baffle. Unlike the Reference II series, the magnets have been embedded within the baffle for superior high frequency diffraction reduction. A brushed polymer veneer adds more modern aesthetic for the Reference Premiere series. The clean, seamless lines of these speakers allow them to be incorporated into any decor.
Hybrid Tractrix® Horn Technology
Klipsch proprietary Tractrix® horn-loaded technology ensures high-frequency energy of the RP-504C centre channel 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 TweeterA 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-504C centre channel speaker’s 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.
Rear Tractrix® Port
The rear Tractrix port of the Reference Premiere centre channel speakers is perfectly matched to the cabinet and woofers, creating ideal airflow with minimal distortion or turbulence even at the lowest frequencies.
Robust Input Terminals
Single 5-way screw terminals accept banana plugs or bare wire up to 12-gauge for flexible, lasting connections while the vibrant colour coding provides easy set-up and connection.
Finished To Perfection
The RP-504C ebony and walnut finishes boast satin painted baffles with a scratch resistant design for an elegant audio solution to your home theatre system. Strong, flexible, magnetic grilles provide protection and a sleek aesthetic to compliment your home’s decor.
