After releasing the 2018 Klipsch Reference and 2018 Klipsch Reference Premiere range, the American manufacturer’s next move was to add its Cerametallic and Tractrix technologies to its new range of 2-way in-wall speakers. These THX certified speakers are designed to be part of a home theater system.

The Klipsch THX-502-L and Klipsch THX-504-L speakers are THX Select2 certified. In other words, these speakers can deliver a high sound pressure level while maintaining a low distortion rate in a living room measuring up to 20m². The Klipsch THX-502-L features two fiberglass woofers while the Klipsch THX-504-L is fitted with twice as many.  The strength of these speakers is their horn-loaded titanium dome tweeter which lowers the distortion rate while increasing the reach of high frequencies.

The Klipsch THX-5002-L, Klipsch THX-5002-S, Klipsch THX-8000-L and Klipsch THX-8000-S in-wall speakers are THX Ultra2. They are therefore designed to be installed in large rooms measuring 50m² and over. In addition to the Cerametallic technology, the Klipsch THX-5002-L and Klipsch THX-5002-S speakers also have the particularity of featuring a bass-reflex enclosure.

The speakers can therefore ensure an energetic delivery of lows down to 45Hz. The number of tweeters is what sets the two speakers from the range apart. The L model is fitted with one tweeter, while the S features two. Note that the use of two tweeters ensures enhanced dispersion but only offers mono sound restitution.

The Klipsch THX-5002S is fitted with two tweeters for enhanced dispersion of high frequencies.

The Klipsch THX-8000-L and Klipsch THX-8000-S in-wall speakers feature an 8” (20 cm) Cerametallic woofer paired with one (L model) or two (S model) tweeters.

Note that in-wall speakers benefit from the use of a subwoofer or in-wall subwoofer.
