After just one listen, you’ll discover the P-17B represents the latest advancement in horn technology and purest application of those design principles yet.

Offering 3-way performance, the P-17B speaker shares a lot of similarities with the flagship P-39F floorstander, employing the same Tractrix® horn-loaded midrange and super tweeter.

Unique to the Palladium Series is a carbon-infused, thermoset composite dual-horn configuration. It consists of a proprietary tweeter design, combining a chambered phase plug and Tractrix® Horn for extended high-frequency response; a second 90º by 60º acoustically dampened Tractrix Horn is coupled to the midrange driver, resulting in remarkably precise and detailed performances.

Klipsch  Palladium  Series  Handmade


For superior bass performance, the P-17B’s low-frequency driver employs a 7-inch hybrid cone woofer, powered by a unique neodymium magnet structure. A single port on the rear of the speaker enhances low-distortion bass response. The woofer’s voice coil responds accurately to the smallest signal modulation, yet can also handle the high power of the most demanding soundtracks.
