R-15PM POWERED MONITORS

First and foremost, Klipsch is a speaker company and we’re pretty sure that we’re the best at making great-sounding speakers. The Klipsch Reference R-15PM Powered Monitors carry on the company’s legacy, providing room-filling sound in a compact package.

Technically speakers, each monitor includes a 1″ aluminum diaphragm compression driver mated to 90° x 90° square Tractrix Horn and 5.25″ copper spun magnetically shielded IMG woofer. The R-15PM powered monitors also have a built-in custom amplifier, eliminating the need for external amplification which means that world-class Klipsch engineers have full control of the signal path. We’ve picked and tuned the components to be an absolute perfect match throughout, making the system sound incredibly immersive and complete.

Don’t believe us? Just ask CNET and AVS FORUM who reviewed the R-15PM powered monitors.

CNET’s Steve Guttenberg: “No one would describe the R-15PM’s sound as shy and retiring; this little guy kicks butt.”

AVS Forum’s Mark Henninger: “Regardless of whether I used the R-15PMs to listen to my music collection, catch a movie, play video games, or simply to watch a TV show, they delivered clear, dynamic, and completely non-fatiguing sound.”

Oh and they aren’t too shabby on the eyes either. Their minimal, yet striking, design fits with almost any décor situation and the Reference series’ copper cones ensure that these aren’t the typical black box speakers.

KLIPSCH PRO-JECT DEBUT CARBON TURNTABLE

We are very proud to have teamed up with Pro-Ject Audio Systems to deliver a Klipsch-branded version of the company’s award-winning Primary turntable. Pro-Ject is an iconic brand in its own right, long serving as one of the gold standards in the turntable business and making some of the very best turntables at attainable prices.

Packing a low vibration synchronous AC motor, a perfectly-matched 8.6” aluminum tone-arm, and an audiophile-grade, low-distortion Ortofon OM 5e magnetic cartridge, the Pro-Ject Primary and R-15PM powered monitors are a match made in heaven.

NO RECEIVER OR PHONO PRE-AMP NECESSARY

We mentioned it previously in this blog post; however, it is worth repeating. The R-15PM Powered Monitors have built-in amplification AND inputs, meaning that you can ditch that clunky receiver that takes up entirely too much space on your countertop or in your media cabinet.

Most importantly for the sack of this turntable pack is the inclusion of a phono input. That means you can plug the turntable directly into the speakers. Normally, you would have to plug the turntable into the phono pre-amp and phono pre-amp into the receiver. Not this time!

Really, it’s all about making it easier for the customer who just wants to listen to their dang music BUT also doesn’t want to sacrifice the sound quality for ease of use. We believe we have covered all of the bases with the R-15PM Turntable Pack, making one of the easiest to setup vinyl solutions out there.

ALL CABLES INCLUDED

We can probably all agree that there is nothing more frustrating than when cables or batteries are not included in the box. We’ve fixed that here. Everything you need to complete your turntable setup comes together. Heck, we’ve also included a few options if you want to connect your R-15PMs in a different way.

This is what you get in the box:

  • 68″ AC power cord
  • Remote control
  • CR2025 3V battery (installed in remote)
  • 16′ Length of 18AWG speaker wire (bare tinned wire on each end)
  • 5′ USB-A to USB-B cable
  • 5′ Stereo RCA cable

Isn’t it about time someone actually did this? We have done everything we can to make sure you have the easiest setup without giving up ANYTHING in terms of sound quality of versatility.

Best Speakers for College

Audio. It’s the fabric of the college experience, whether you’re belting out lyrics at 4 a.m. or confined to the library, frantically studying for that final you somehow forgot about.

Or maybe you’re the type to stream endless seasons of a certain show about prison inmates while downing copious amounts of mac & cheese and other microwaveable food items.

Whatever the case, you shouldn’t settle for crap audio. Klipsch offers the very best speakers for college for any situation at price points that don’t take away too much from your precious beer money.

Disclaimer: the below recommendations of the best speakers for college will assuredly result in the Residential Advisor (RA) knocking on your door. (Worth it.)

Reference R-15PM Laptop

Speakers for the Dorm Room

Klipsch Reference R-15PM Powered Monitors

You’re going to need some extremely capable speakers when you’re a few beverages deep and exactly the right song pops up on Pandora. After all, you’re going to crank it UP.

Enter the Reference R-15PM powered monitors. These ultra-versatile speakers have built-in Bluetooth and an endless supply of inputs, allowing you and your buddies to connect to them in just about any way possible. Plus, the amplifier is built-in, so you won’t have to shuffle things around to fit in a clunky receiver.

Thanks to patented Klipsch horn-loaded technology and the custom-engineered amplifier, these speakers are extremely efficient, playing with no distortion even at the highest volumes. No one likes crackling. We like it loud and we do it better than anyone else.

Seriously though, we aren’t liable for the inevitable angry 2 a.m. knock on the door from your RA who was studying for their sociology midterm.

(Oh and they look and sound terrific on your desk, offering crisp and clean background music when you get around to actually studying.)

Speakers for the Quad

Klipsch Groove Portable Bluetooth Speaker | Loud & Proud Limited Edition

College life isn’t restricted to a dorm room. You’re going to be out and about, trying to find yourself (whatever that means) during your schooling.

For those times you are throwing the ol’ Frisbee around the luscious lawn of “the quad,” you should consider the Klipsch Groove portable speaker. It boasts Bluetooth, 8-hour battery life and a durable, splashproof design.

That means you can connect easily, goof around for as long as you want and even beat up the speaker a little bit if you like.

Sounds good? Sounds great.

Speakers for the Off-Campus Apartment

Klipsch Reference R-4B Sound Bar + Wireless Subwoofer 

Couldn’t stay in a dorm room for four years? We don’t blame you. Off-campus apartments will typically allow you to drill holes into the wall for photos, décor…or speakers.

That being said, your neighbors may not be fellow students, so they probably won’t be as amenable to a full-blown surround system with every wall shaking as if there were no tomorrow. Of course, you can still get in plenty of trouble with the Reference R-4B sound bar and wireless subwoofer, but that’s on you – not us.

Budgets are understandably tight in college. After all, beer isn’t free, but the R-4B is the most affordable option in the line of Klipsch Reference sound bars. Once you split the cost with a few of the roommates, you won’t even think twice about it…Until it comes time to move out and all of you are fighting over the sound bar that made you fall in love with your music and moves again.

Speakers for Your Professor

Klipsch Heresy III Floorstanding Speaker | 70th Anniversary Edition

Maybe your professor is an audiophile. Maybe you just need to change the topic from that paper you forgot to turn in. Regardless, the Klipsch Heresy III is going to be a head-turner for even the most distinguished educator.

These might even be older than your professor, originating in the early 1950s. Today, they are still handcrafted in Hope, Arkansas and stack up both visually with their mid-century modern appearance and award-winning sound. These speakers are timeless even if your professor’s lectures aren’t.

Klipschorn Hero 2000x1125

Speakers for the Frat House

Klipschorn

Now, some of you might call us crazy for recommending the original Heritage Series speaker for a frat house. After all, they have a premium price and frat houses are stereotypically gross, but bare with us.

Yes, the Klipschorn isn’t exactly cheap; however, when you start splitting the cost with all of your fraternity brothers, it starts making a lot more sense. Plus, the Klipschorn will last a lifetime, so the fraternity will not have to replace the speakers for perhaps half a century.

These aren’t speakers that you can just knock over and break. Just stick them in the corners and turn up the music. Everyone is going to want to come to your party…maybe the police too.

Just don’t get kicked out of the house. Trust us, you don’t want to move these guys.

It’s a time for friends, family and a whole lotta fun. Assuming the weather cooperates, we’re guessing most of you will be marauding around outside, forgetting to put on sun screen, grilling up various meats, and drinking too many “beverages” – oh wait, maybe that’s just us.

Anyway, music is likely going to be a big part of your weekend plans, so we’re here to help you figure out exactly what you need to quench your thirst for quality audio.

HEADPHONES FOR THE RACE TRACK

Klipsch X12i Headphones

Klipsch’s headquarters are located just a few miles from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, so the Indy 500 holds a special place in our hearts, especially so since it is the race’s 100th anniversary. While we are quite proud to have Klipsch speakers installed at various locations around the track, we have to admit that there are times that call for headphones.

With their slim and lightweight aluminum casing, the Klipsch X12i in-ear headphones will let you hear all of the drivers on the radio with perfect clarity while blocking out the engine noise from the cars whizzing around the track. They also work great as earplugs too, if that’s more your speed.

So, we’re showing favoritism toward Indianapolis once again, but here us out. The Snake Pit is essentially a giant mosh-pit for the concerts that occur before the running of the Indianapolis 500. It pretty dang wild. Anyway, we teamed up with the track’s organizers to come out with 100 of these custom headphones to celebrate the 100th running of the race.

If you don’t care about the Snake Pit or simply want something less flashy, you can always just get the standard black finish Reference R6 On-Ear headphones, which deliver amazing performance and comfort at a very palatable price.

The R-15PM powered monitors are just so dang easy to set up and use that you won’t have to sweat it all – or, at least, you won’t be adding to the sweat that has already accumulated on your back, head and who knows where else. Just plug this versatile speaker pair into a turntable, TV, computer or cell phone and play.

Best Speakers for Your Record Player

Vinyl is back in a big way. After all, vinyl made more money than free streams in 2016 with sales rising to their highest level since 1988, according to the RIAA. The record player is becoming practically as ubiquitous as the television in living rooms across the world.

Whether you own one record or 1,000 records, a pair of quality speakers for your record player is exactly what you need. After all, what’s the point of investing in analog audio if you’re just going to push the sound through some crappy all-in-one solution?

We’re here to help you get the very most of out of this new-again medium.

While almost any pair of Klipsch bookshelf or floorstanding speakers would be terrific partners for a record player, we have broken down several situations to find the best speaker for your record player.

FAQ: Reference R-15PM Powered Monitors

The Klipsch Reference R-15PM powered monitors may look like something you’ve seen before from Klipsch, but they’re a whole different beast and a whole new product category for the 70-year-old company.

While boasting the ever-popular copper-and-black motif of the Reference Series, the R-15PM powered monitors actually house custom-designed amplification, making them the first powered monitors to come out of the Klipsch laboratories and the most feature packed powered monitor on the market today.

As we covered in our previous blog, there are a slew of reasons to get the Reference R-15PM powered monitors. However, with this new product, you may find yourself asking questions. Luckily, we have the answers.

Here are frequently asked questions about the R-15PM powered monitors.

Why is having two speakers better than an all-in-one solution?

Undoubtedly, you will have noticed that the market is flooded with basic all-in-one solutions that pack the turntable + speakers together. This isn’t going to get you the acoustic performance that two speakers would.

Having two speakers apart from each other allows for better stereo separation by opening up the soundstage and giving you a more immersive experience. Speakers too close together will not play in true stereo. Recording engineers put a lot of energy into making a stereo mix. Don’t let them down.

Do I need an AV Receiver (AVR) with the R-15PM powered monitors?

No, all of the functions and connections of an AVR are built right into the R-15PM. The right channel monitor incorporates a powerful custom designed low-noise stereo amplifier to maximize system performance and eliminate the need for external amplification. This also eliminates any guesswork associated with pairing your speakers to the correct amp..and the blown drivers that occur during that process.

Should I use the R-15PMs with an AV Receiver (AVR)?

You could easily take the line out of your AVR and plug it into the line in of the speaker and it would work just fine. But why would you want to?

What can I connect the R-15PMs to?

The R-15PMs are incredibly versatile, connecting easily to turntables, televisions, cell phones, laptops, and more thanks to RCA phono/line level inputs, USB digital audio input, digital optical port, 3.5mm jack and Bluetooth® wireless technology.

R-15PM cables

Do I need additional cables to connect to my TV, computer and turntable?

No, all of the cables you need are included in the box. See above!

R-15PM turntable connect

How do I connect my turntable to the R-15PMs?

It is super easy to connect the R-15PM to a turntable thanks to the speaker’s built-in phono pre-amp.

  1. Connect the RCA cables (red + white) from the turntable to the back of the R-15PM
  2. Ground the turntable to the R-15PM’s ground screw (or not, depending on which results in a lower level of hum from the speakers)
  3. Ensure the switch on the back of the R-15PM is set to “Phono”
  4. Plug the turntable and R-15PM into power outlets
  5. Turn on the power switch on the back of the speaker
  6. Put a record on

It’s that easy. Enjoy!

R-15PM TV connect

Can I stream audio to my R-15PMs?

Of course! The R-15PM has built-in Bluetooth® wireless technology, so you can easily stream from your phone, tablet, computer, whatever. If you are a Google Chromecast Audio user, you will be happy to note that there is an aux port on the back of the R-15PM, so you can start casting right away.

Reference R-15PM remote

Does the R-15PM come with a remote?

Yes. You won’t need to get up from the couch just to turn up the volume from your speakers. Use the handy, dandy IR remote that comes with every pair of R-15PMs. It gives you easy access to system features such as dedicated source selection, track controls and play/pause.

Can I connect a subwoofer to the R-15PM?

If you want to add some boom boom to your setup, consider connecting a Klipsch subwoofer to your R-15PMs via the sub port on the back of the speaker. We recommend our Reference R-10SW or Reference R-12SW.

Reference R-15PM vinyl

Wait, are the R-15PM powered monitors the same thing as the R-15M bookshelf speakers?

While they may look the same at first glance, the R-15PM powered monitors and R-15M bookshelf speakers are vastly different both on the inside and outside.

Acoustically, the R-15PM and R-15M are not the same, despite both having a 1″ aluminum diaphragm compression driver mated to 90° x 90° square Tractrix Horn and 5.25″ copper spun magnetically shielded IMG woofer. While the R-15M needs to be paired with an AV receiver, the amplification of the R-15PM is built right into the speakers. We custom-engineered this amplification, ensuring that it is the perfect match.

Physically, you may have noticed that the R-15PM does not have the R-15M’s screw holes on the front of the speaker that hold the R-15M’s grille in place. The R-15PM does not come with grilles. One R-15PM speaker also has a LED indicator, displaying the connected device. All the source inputs are located on the back of the R-15PM.

Whatever your content may be, the R-15PM powered monitors pack a powerful punch.

5 Reasons To Get Reference R-15PM Powered Monitors

For years we have been receiving emails, calls, tweets, posts, texts asking us to make one thing – powered monitors.

Well, we did it! And, we didn’t just make any ol’ powered speaker either. We made a class-leading, room-rattling, killer speaker that puts an exclamation point on our entrance into the category.

The Reference R-15PM Powered Monitors are some of the most versatile and easy-to-use speakers on the planet. Oh, and they sound pretty darn great as well. Outsiders who roll through Klipsch HQ for a demo are consistently blown away when they are played against the category’s leading contenders.

Here are five reasons why the Reference R-15PM Powered Monitors should be your next speakers.

Reference R-15PM Laptop

Connect to Everything

Whatever the source for music or video content, chances are the R-15PMs are going to be able to direct connect with the proper cabling. The integrated phono pre-amp, Bluetooth® wireless technology, digital optical, analog RCA and USB inputs, makes the R-15PM your new best friend, connecting seamlessly to turntables, televisions, cell phones and computers.

Reference R-15PM amplification

No AVR

All of the R-15PM’s connectivity and amplification is built into the speakers. That’s right. There’s no need for a clunky, old AV receiver. Plug and play. The onboard amplifier is custom-engineered just for these high-performance speakers, maximizing output and sound quality.

Reference R-15PM Phono Pre-Amp

Built-In Phono Pre-Amp

We mentioned this above, but this really is a killer feature for all of you looking to get back into the vinyl game. There’s no need for an amplifier or receiver, plus you won’t need a separate phono pre-amp to connect to your turntable. You can directly plug a turntable into your R-15PMs.

Reference R-15PM TV

Two Speakers Are Better Than One

We don’t really need to say more…but we will anyway. There are a couple of reasons why you are better off with a true stereo system like the R-15PM rather than an all-in-one solution.

The first reason should be obvious – stereo separation. By having the speakers apart and playing in true stereo, it opens up the spatial reproduction of the tracks, the way the recording engineer intended.

Secondly, turntables are quite sensitive to vibrations. That means that you don’t want to have you speakers too close by. Otherwise, you are looking at extreme distortion, which could potentially damage your turntable and/or speakers.

Reference R-15PM

Reference Performance

Every speaker company out there talks about sound quality. At Klipsch, we actually mean it. Put these bad boys up against any of the competition and we’re confident we’ll come out the victors.

Each monitor has a 1″ aluminum diaphragm compression driver mated to a 90° x 90° square Tractrix Horn and 5.25″ copper spun magnetically shielded IMG woofer. In layman’s terms: these speakers have the chops to make your music rock and movies rumble. 

Do you like a little more “oomph”? Well, you can add just about any Klipsch subwoofer to your R-15PM setup. Boom.

These truly aren’t the typical bookshelf speakers. These are the ultimate power players. Connect the R-15PM powered monitors to just about anything, set them up in minutes and kick-back while they deliver room-filling sound.
