Klipsch Develops In-Wall Versions of its Award-Winning THX Ultra2 Custom Home Theater System

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

INDIANAPOLIS (September 7, 2006) — Klipsch recently launched in-wall versions of its THX Ultra2 custom home theater system. Engineered to bring real cinema sound to the comforts of home, the new KL-7800-THX in-wall LCR and KS-7800-THX in-wall surround offer the ultimate performance in hidden solution loudspeakers.

THX Ultra2 certification indicates that the speakers work well with multi-channel music and movie presentations playing up to reference levels in rooms of 3,000 cubic feet or larger. The KL-7800-THX and KS-7800-THX deliver the same high-output, low distortion signature sound as their traditional enclosure counterparts.

The KL-7800-THX features an 8-inch aluminum woofer and a 1-inch titanium-dome compression driver mated to a square Tractrix Horn. This advanced horn design dramatically increases efficiency and allows the loudspeaker to produce more output using less energy. The KL-7800-THX also has a back box enclosure, making its response predictable and repeatable. Because the back box fits nicely within the speaker’s footprint, the KL-7800-THX can easily be installed into new or existing construction.

The KS-7800-THX produces a smooth, seamless broad distribution of sound by employing an 8-inch aluminum woofer and two vertically-stacked square Tractrix Horn tweeters in a Wide Dispersion Surround Technology (WDST) array. This unique horn design incorporates the same patent-pending technology as the company’s new WDST in-wall surround but on a larger sonic scale. The KS-7800-THX also features the same back box enclosure design as the KL-7800-THX.

Klipsch’s WDST is the industry’s no-compromise approach to surround speaker design because it offers both rich, immersive surround sound and precise localization of individual effects from a speaker that has much more placement flexibility than conventional designs.

These THX in-wall models can create a complete THX Ultra2-certified in-wall system when installed with Klipsch’s KW-120-THX subwoofers and a KA-1000-THX subwoofer amplifier. They can also be mixed and matched with the Klipsch THX Ultra2 box product.

Now shipping, the KL-7800-THX and KS-7800-THX are priced individually at U.S. MSRPs of $1,000 and $750 respectively.
