Klipsch Brings Synergy To Market

8/24/2010 12:01:00 AM Eastern

Indianapolis - Klipsch refreshed
its moderately priced Synergy series of in-room speakers by incorporating revised
horn tweeters, new crossover networks and a more contemporary look.

Eight new
models consist of three floorstanding towers (F-30, F-20 and F-10) at a
suggested $598 to $998 per pair, one bookshelf model (B-20) at $279 per pair,
two center channels (C-20 and C-10) at $199 and $299 each, and two surround
speakers (S-20 and S-10) at $329 and $479 per pair.

All models
feature a revised Tractrix Horn throat geometry that enabled Klipsch to lower
their crossover point to increase mid-range frequency presence, a spokesperson
told TWICE. Tractrix Horn technology delivers high efficiency, improved
reliability, a wide soundstage, and well-defined imaging, the company said.

The five
speakers with 1-inch tweeter (F-30, F-20, F-10, C-20, S-20) add a new Linear
Travel Suspension and aluminum-diaphragm compression drivers, said to work
together to deliver more piston-like motion to reduce high-frequency distortion
and create a more open, natural sound, the company said.

The
surround speakers feature the company's Wide Dispersion Surround Technology
(WDST), said to reproduce localized and ambient sounds with maximum dispersion
and allow for greater placement flexibility.

The
speakers are available in black-ash vinyl veneer with gray accents. The horns
now feature a black finish, and the speakers' grille cloth is darker to match
today's flat-panel TV bezels.

Mark
Casavant, product development VP, said the changes enable the company to "offer
users an even higher level of the renowned Klipsch sound performance at nearly
the same price points as before."

Klispch
also launched a new Reference
II series
.
