Reference 2022 home theater speakers

INDIANAPOLIS, IND. (May 16, 2022) — Klipsch®, a leading premium global audio company, is announcing the debut of its new ReferenceTM series speakers. The company’s acclaimed Reference series speakers have dominated living rooms for years. The new series features the most dramatic upgrades since the series’ inception, including many technologies derived from the award-winning Klipsch Reference Premiere series. The new Klipsch Reference series is comprised of 10 models­ — including Dolby Atmos® enabled speakers — all infused with the latest technological audio advancements, as well as cosmetic and material upgrades.

Now in its seventh generation, the new Klipsch Reference speaker series delivers even higher sound quality, precision, clarity, and effortless power. A new, larger, edge-to-edge proprietary Tractrix® horn provides improved coverage, bandwidth, and directivity control. New woofers made of spun-copper thermoformed crystal polymer (TCP) use steeper angling of cones for a smoother response and better crossover integration for improved accuracy and transparency. Sleek cabinet designs exude modern elegance with enhanced cabinet bracing and features such as black scratch-resistant wood grain vinyl finish, metallic coated binding posts, and discrete Dolby Atmos connections that allow for easy and refined elevation speaker integration.

The 10 new Klipsch Reference series models consist of three floorstanding speakers (R-605FA Dolby Atmos enabled, R-800F and R-600F), two center channels (R-50C and R-30C), two bookshelf speakers (R-50M, R-40M), one Dolby Atmos elevation speaker that can also be used as a surround speaker (R-40SA), and two powered subwoofers (R-121SW and R-101SW).

Price points for the new Klipsch Reference series span U.S. MSRP price points ranging from $998-$1,798/pair of floorstanding speakers, $299-$399/pair of bookshelf speakers, $379-499/each for a center channel, $599/pair of surrounds, and $499-$599 for the subwoofers. They are available now in the U.S. at Best Buy, and select authorized retailers.
