Product Description

Klipsch RP500CB II Reference Premier Dual 5.25″ Center Black

Big center channel sound effects

The new RP500CB II is a strong contender for the centre channel position in a Klipsch Reference Premiere home theatre system. The Reference Premiere line has been updated with a slew of new features that elevate classic Klipsch sound to new heights. The RP500CB II features a new tweeter, improved woofers, and a ported enclosure.

Updated tweeter and horn design

The centre channel speaker is the lifeline of your home theatre system. It replicates almost all of the dialogue in a film or television show. It’s critical to get a centre channel speaker that can deliver both voices and explosions with equal clarity. Klipsch tweaked the tweeter and horn on the RP500CB II to make centre channel effects sound as clear and precise as possible.

The vented housing of the 1″ LTS (Linear Travel Suspension) tweeter helps to reduce standing waves, which can degrade sound quality. It’s housed in a Tractrix® horn with a widened mouth for improved soundstaging and directivity. To keep the highs smooth and non-fatiguing, the horn has a soft silicone face and a unique phase plug.

Better driver motors for engaging sound

On either side of the central tweeter is a 5-1/4″ CeremetallicTM woofer. The woofers add punch to centre channel sound effects like explosions and aid in the reproduction of voices in lower registers. Metallic woofers aren’t new to Klipsch speakers, but the motor structures behind the cones have been significantly improved.

Each woofer has a voice coil that is 70% larger for improved control, speed, and accuracy. The woofers also have new aluminium shorting rings, which help to reduce distortion and allow the drivers to handle slightly more power.

A ported cabinet for deeper bass

The RP500CB II’s cabinet features a rear-firing Tractrix port that contributes to the speaker’s deep bass response. The horn shape of the port encourages more efficient airflow into and out of the cabinet, reducing port noise and low-frequency distortion.

It is critical to consider where and how you will position your centre channel speaker. Because this speaker has a ported cabinet, it should not be placed against a wall or against the back of your entertainment centre. Instead, I recommend pulling the speaker away from the wall to give it some “breathing room.” The bass response of the speaker will appreciate it.
