We are proud to introduce the Klipsch Reference R-4B soundbar and wireless subwoofer into the Klipsch family of soundbars. The newest member is also the most affordable, ensuring that more people won’t be stuck using their TV’s built-in speakers.
Seriously, please don’t use your TV’s crappy built-in speakers. There are dozens of reasons why the Reference R-4B soundbar and wireless subwoofer is amazing; however, we have narrowed it down to four that we believe are most compelling.
1. DESIGN SOLUTION
One of the most annoying things about many soundbars is that when you place them in front of the television on the same surface that they block a portion of the bottom part of the screen. They may even block the TV’s infrared sensor, meaning that using your remote becomes difficult if not impossible.
The Reference R-4B soundbar stands at a mere 3.5” in height, allowing you to place it directly in front of the television without fear of it blocking the screen or the infrared sensor. If you watch a lot of Sportscenter, you’ll thank us because you won’t be missing the ticker anymore.
2. AUDIO SETTINGS
The Reference R-4B has a couple of audio settings that are useful additions to one’s listening experience.
Voice Enhance Mode increases the dialogue’s volume, enhancing vocal clarity without boosting the ambient sounds. Never again will you have to say “What did he say?”
Night Mode adjusts dynamic range for quieter listening environments. Here at Klipsch, we are infamous for liking it loud (just ask anyone who attended the Consumer Electronics Show), but there are times when it is simply more comfortable to have a more subdued listening experience.
3. WIRELESS SUBWOOFER
Affordable soundbars often suffer from weak performance, particularly in regards to bass response. Thanks to a 6.5” down-firing wireless subwoofer, the Klipsch Reference R-4B is certainly an exception. Its wooden cabinet boasts a slot-ported design, allowing for deep, powerful bass.
4. SOUND QUALITY
At the time of this blog post, the Reference R-4B soundbar is the most affordable entry in the Klipsch roster of soundbars. You probably think that we cut a bunch of corners and put out a soundbar that just isn’t up to our usual lofty standards. Wrong.
We say it time and time again, but it’s certainly worth repeating. Whenever we make a product, we aim to deliver best-in-class acoustics. We have done so again. This isn’t “just a soundbar.”
