Klipsch Reference II Series Speakers

Klipsch® announced today the launch of its Reference II Series speakers. The new line is an enhanced version of the company's acclaimed Reference speakers and is comprised of 17 all-new speaker models that are infused with the latest technological audio advancements.

Now in its fifth generation, the Reference II Series speakers present even higher sound quality due to re-engineered drivers and a new crossover system. Complete with proprietary Tractrix® Horn technology, each speaker offers the precision, clarity and effortless power for which Klipsch is known. The new line also exudes elegance with several cosmetic upgrades, including new black metallic finished baffles, machined Cerametallic woofers, logos and feet.

The 17 new models consist of five floorstanding towers (RF-7 II, RF-82 II, RF-62 II and RF-52 II and RF-42 II), four bookshelf models (RB-81 II, RB-61 II, RB-51 II and RB-41 II), four center channels (RC-64 II, RC-62 II,RC-52 II and RC-42 II) and four surround speakers (RS-62 II, RS-52 II, RS-42 II and RS-41 II), which include Klipsch's exclusive Wide Dispersion Surround Technology (WDST). WDST is the no-compromise approach to surround speaker design because it provides maximum surround coverage and improved placement flexibility.

All of the Reference II Series loudspeakers feature lightweight, rigid Cerametallic woofer cones to ensure tight musical bass response. New Tractrix horn tweeters incorporate Linear Travel Suspension and titanium compression drivers, which work together to reduce distortion and provide an open, natural sound. Available in black ash or cherry furniture-grade wood and vinyl veneers, each of these speakers boasts a stylish finish for seamless integration into any decor.

With this new diverse lineup, the Klipsch Reference II Series now covers U.S. MSRP price points ranging from $549.99 to $3,198.99 for a pair of floorstanding speakers, $279.99 to $798.99 for a pair of bookshelf models, $229.99 to $1,299.99 for a center channel and $329.99 to $1,198.99 for a pair of surrounds.
