Klipsch Grants Hollywood Actor the Ultimate in Home Theater

INDIANAPOLIS (August 3, 2011) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker manufacturer, is announcing today the brand’s involvement in the outfitting of celebrity Patrick Warburton’s home, all of which will be documented on the DIY Network’s Hollywood Hi-Tech this evening at 9:30 p.m  EDT. Warburton is well-known in the entertainment industry for his roles on Seinfeld and Rules of Engagement.

To aid in the transformation of his Camarillo, Cal. home, Klipsch was the chosen speaker provider for the remodel of Warburton’s pool house, which serves as a home theater lounge and rehearsal space. To provide a high-performance home theater system that properly aligned with Warburton’s love for big sound and classic rock, Klipsch was eager to offer its desired Reference II series speakers. Complete with proprietary Tractrix® Horn technology, each speaker offers the precision, clarity and effortless power for which Klipsch is known. To ensure nothing but the best in room-filling bass, Klipsch provided not one, but three SW-112 subwoofers. Boasting a modern, unobtrusive design, the subwoofers feature the latest in amplifier and driver technology for unrivalled power and efficient bass extension. The installation and reveal that took place at Warburton’s home will be shown in tonight’s Hollywood Hi-Tech episode.

Phil Hatch, worldwide manager of training for Klipsch, who was in attendance for the reveal said once Warburton was shown his revamped pool house, he immediately began playing his favorite live concerts for all in attendance. “Throughout his all-night listening session, he continued to high-five each and every one of us as he was blown away by raw power of his new system.”

Hosted by lifestyle-technology expert Janna Robinson, DIY Network’s Hollywood Hi-Tech is the first TV series devoted to lifestyle electronics and custom installation in Hollywood stars’ homes. Using state-of-the-art, high-end gear, the show documents the ultimate, one-room technology makeover to completely transform the chosen celebrity’s space. Since its inception, Hollywood Hi-Tech has entered the homes of award-winning director Oliver Stone, Entourage’s Kevin Connolly, Entertainment Tonight’s Nancy O’Dell, and comedian Adam Carolla.

“To know a renowned actor such as Patrick Warburton is utilizing and enjoying Klipsch sound solutions brings us great honor,” said Paul Jacobs, CEO of Klipsch. “We’re thankful to Patrick for welcoming us in his home and granting us the opportunity to do what we do best – deliver our signature sound so others can listen with passion.”
