Klipsch RP-160M Reference Premiere Monitor Speakers – Pair

Klipsch RP-160M Overview:

Klipsch Audio Technologies is famous for its loudspeakers and headphones. The Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-160M is a monitor speaker that was created to not disappoint. It is not a surprise to know that the Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-160M would be a great contender in comparison to other speakers on the market.

The Klipsch Reference Premier RP160M is made from quality parts. This ensures that the speakers have a dynamic sound quality that is both clear and satisfying to the ears. It comes with two color options: Ebony and Cherry. This product includes four rubber pads, two detachable magnetic grilles and two bookshelf loudspeakers.

Key Features of The Klipsch RP-160M Reference Premiere Monitor Speakers:

The RP160m has a bass-reflex design and is made with a strong polymer finish. The parts are very sturdy and the looks are very simple yet elegant. The grille can be attached magnetically.

It also features a Hybrid Cross-section Tractrix Horn; it has a spherical horn throat and a square horn mouth to enhance the high frequency extension and response as well as improving the dynamics and imaging. The Tractrix port is rear-firing, so that it can produce strong bass. It includes a LTS (Linear Travel Suspension) that minimizes distortion.

Another feature to note is the Cerametallic cone woofer paired with a Klipsch Tractrix Horn loaded LTS tweeter. It has a MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) that helps lessen diffraction, resonance and high-frequency distortion. The MDF has an angled plate for additional speaker stability and height.

The grilles can be magnetically attached, making it easier to remove for cleaning. The post speaker terminals are dual binding for you to use it for bi-wiring or bi-amping. The cabinets house the woofers, bringing out the best in quality of low end sound and clear mids. For highs, the horn tweeter is a great addition.

You can mount this product on a wall or you can place them on a bookshelf. Either way, it does not affect the quality of the product.

We give this product a excellent rating and we will mention that we have an affinity for Klipsch products. The only fault that we can think of with this product is that you can possibly add a subwoofer to enhance the sound, but that’s not necessary.
