Klipsch just announced its fifth generation Quintet surround sound speaker system offering newly engineered, significant technological refinements. Complete with four satellite speakers and a dedicated center channel speaker, the 5.1 home theater system utilizes durable, high-quality components and the same state-of-the-art horn-loaded technology that has made Klipsch an industry leader for more than 65 years.
Each Quintet speaker employs a new 90-degree by 90-degree Tractrix horn, designed to expand both placement flexibility and the main listening area without reducing overall sound clarity. Combined with the Tractrix horn, a lightweight aluminum tweeter creates a highly efficient driver with excellent transient response and lack of distortion. The new Linear Travel Suspension reduces distortion and enhances dynamics. Complete with an all-new long-throw injection molded graphite (IMG) woofers, the Quintet enables maximum impact and powerful output.
To further enhance the product's build quality, its cabinets are made of professional AcoustaComp, a material that is naturally dense, rigid and acoustically insert. This specialized material, formed into the Quintet's speaker cabinets with non-parallel walls to diminish internal standing waves, is truly the next generation in compact home speaker technology.
Offering listeners significant placement flexibility, each Quintet satellite speaker offers a keyhole mount and a 1/4-inch 20-threaded inserts for maximum mounting flexibility. The center channel features dual keyhole inserts.
“By refining the system's overall build quality, materials and audio technology components, we are able to provide listeners with the most compact yet biggest sounding Quintet yet,” said Paul Jacobs, CEO of Klipsch.
