Klipsch® Brings Floorstander Performance to In-Wall Flat-Panel Speaker

INDIANAPOLIS (May 27, 2008) — With the launch of its new KL-6504-THX in-wall speaker— designed specifically for flat-panel televisions—Klipsch proves that powerful floorstanding performance can come in a discreet, space-saving package.

According to Mark Casavant, vice president of product development for Klipsch architectural, the KL-6504-THX is one of the first in-wall speakers to meet the stringent standards of THX® Select2 certification, meaning it’s capable of bringing consistent and compelling home theater sound to larger-sized rooms. “Never before has Klipsch offered such premium performance in an in-wall speaker,” he concluded.

The KL-6504-THX employs four high-output 5.25-inch fiberglass woofers for powerful bass impact, while a 1-inch titanium tweeter mated to a new symmetrical pattern 90 x 90 square Tractrix® Horn generates flat in-room frequency response with high efficiency and low distortion. This exclusive horn design also allows the speaker to consistently deliver high-performance sound, whether it’s installed horizontally or vertically.

The KL-6504-THX’s titanium horn-loaded tweeter is mated to the woofers using precision-voiced, high-definition crossover networks, creating high sensitivity. This makes the speaker easier to drive, so it requires a lot less amplification power than conventional designs.

Adding to its first-class sound, the KL-6504-THX also has a premium look and feel with its grille off, featuring a deluxe MDF baffle with aluminum fascia. But when covered, the speaker’s paintable grille allows it to blend in perfectly with any home décor. All-new sure-grip mounting dogs offer even pressure against drywall for long-term installation reliability.

Furthermore, this in-wall speaker has a lot of flexibility. Timbre matched to all Klipsch THX-certified products, installers can create a variety of— what Klipsch calls “unbeatable”—stereo and home theater configurations for their clients.

Available for purchase through the specialty retail and residential contracting markets, the KL-6504-THX carries a U.S. MSRP of $750 each.
