Part of the Reference 10 family, the RC-10 center channel adds a new value point to Klipsch's best-selling Reference Series line by offering the same advanced technology and world-class materials as the Reference III center channels but from a smaller enclosure and at a lower price point.
The RC-10 employs dual 4-inch woofers and a 1-inch titanium-dome compression driver loaded with a 4-inch square Tractrix® Horn for maximum clarity and efficiency.
This center channel also utilizes Klipsch's Tapered-Array™ Technology, a 2.5-way design that minimizes the acoustical interference between drivers that plagues most horizontal center-channel speakers. This technology allows both woofers to create intense bass, while only one works with the tweeter to produce the midrange. The result is a smooth, clear sound not just directly in front of the speaker, but off to the sides as well, where conventional center speakers often exaggerate or mask sounds.
The woofers on the RC-10 still feature Klipsch's distinctive, copper-colored Cerametallic™ material. Made with an anodized aluminum, these cones are strong and dent resistant. The anodizing process converts their inner and outer surfaces to ceramic. The outcome is a rigid cone with superb damping characteristics that will not flex or resonate at frequencies within the woofer's operating range.
As in all Reference Series speakers, the RC-10 crossover network is constructed using extremely high-quality components including top-of-the-line internal wiring, polyester film-type capacitors and an air-core inductor to ensure signal purity and proper driver integration.
Available in a black vinyl finish, the RC-10 features a low-diffraction sculpted baffle and a magnetically attached grille for an elegant fit and finish.
Because the design requirements of a center channel are quite challenging, it is difficult to make a modestly sized, horizontally oriented loudspeaker that performs exceptionally. Despite its compact enclosure, the RC-10 easily carries on the Reference Series' high-performance legacy.
While no longer in production, RC-10 loudspeakers are still owned and listened to by Klipsch fans around the world. To connect with other people who are passionate about audio and interested in Klipsch products, visit our open forum bulletin board.
