Klipsch Launches New In-Wall Subwoofer With Dedicated Amp

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

INDIANAPOLIS (September 7, 2006) — In response to installer demand for a powerful subwoofer system that delivers deep-driving bass without taking up valuable floor space, Klipsch will begin shipping its new in-wall subwoofer with matching rack mountable amplifier this month.

Fitting standard 2- by 4-inch construction, the easy-to-install RW-5802 in-wall subwoofer can accommodate any new or existing structure with a minimum 0.5-inch dry wall surface. Because it features an MDF baffle with a reinforced composite sealed enclosure, this high-powered, passive module subwoofer provides guaranteed performance and minimizes sound transfer into adjacent rooms.

The enclosure houses dual 8-inch long-throw woofers. These exclusive drivers feature stiff, well-damped Cerametallic cones, a specially treated aluminum that has been anodized, or electrochemically transformed into ceramic on both outer surfaces. Second only to diamond in strength, this ceramic compound allows the woofers to move at high speeds without blurring the sound like conventional designs.

While the dedicated RSA-500 subwoofer amplifier was primarily designed for use with the RW-5802, it also features custom settings for Klipsch’s AW-800-SW outdoor subwoofer. This high-powered device can drive up to two of these subwoofer modules and delivers 300 watts into an 8-ohm load (one subwoofer module) and 500 watts into a 4-ohm load (two subwoofer modules).

To keep end users from inadvertently tampering with performance levels, the majority of the RSA-500’s controls are housed on its rear panel. A detachable IEC power cord allows for the simple removal and reinstallation of the entire amplifier unit. The RSA-500 was also designed to “play nice” by offering standard input/output connectivity that will support any type of system.

While the RW-5802 and RSA-500 are sold separately, they must be used in conjunction with one another. Available through the residential contracting channel, the RW-5802 subwoofer retails for $500 each (U.S. MSRP) and the RSA-500 amplifier retails for $750 each (U.S. MSRP).
