The Reference line of speakers

Klipsch has given its Reference series a facelift.

The 13-model speaker line has been refreshed with larger versions of the company’s proprietary Tractrix horns, said to improve coverage and bandwidth. New tweeter and phase plugs, meanwhile, are engineered to ensure greater accuracy, while the new rear Tractrix ports produce deeper and more powerful bass.

Cosmetic upgrades include angled feet, full-length low-profile magnetic grilles, and a scratch-resistant black wood-grain vinyl finish. Industrial-style fasteners and spun-copper IMG woofer cones summon the company’s signature Reference design aesthetic.

The new line consists of:

  • four floorstanding speakers (R-625FA Dolby Atmos enabled, R-820F, R-620F, and R-610F) 
  • two center channels (R-52C and R-34C)
  • four bookshelf speakers (R-51M, R-41M and two powered monitors R-41PM and R-51PM)
  • one Dolby Atmos elevation speaker that can also be used as a surround speaker (R-41SA)
  • two powered subwoofers (R-120SW and R-100SW)

The R-51PM and R-41PM powered monitors eliminate the need for an external receiver and are designed to easily connect to a turntable, TV, computer or wireless device. The powered monitors are equipped with an integrated phono pre-amp, Bluetooth, digital optical, and analog RCA and USB inputs.

A new feature and a first for Klipsch powered monitors is Dynamic Bass EQ that dynamically increases volume at low frequencies to match the human ear’s ability to perceive bass.

Suggested retails range from $498 to $1,198 for a pair of floorstanding speakers, $199 to $499 for a pair of bookshelf models, $249 to 349 for a center channel, $399 for a pair of surrounds, and $349 to $449 for the subwoofers.

All are currently available.
