The Next Generation of our iconic Reference Premiere series, the RP-500M II bookshelf speaker incorporates recent developments spearheaded by us in the field, in order to construct a stylish bookshelf with a spirited and beguiling reproduction. Maintaining the Silicone Tractrix Horn feature that the range is known for, along with the newly advanced Cerametallic Woofers, these bookshelves’ offer a comprehensive frequency response and favourable sensitivity rating; making the RP-500M II the perfect product for any audiophile searching for a compact solution.
90° X 90° SILICON COMPOSITE HYBRID TRACTRIX HORN
Horn loading maximises efficiency and increases detail while focusing high frequencies towards the listening area. Proprietary Tractrix® geometry provides the most efficient transfer of high frequency waves into the listening area. The phase plug and compressed moulded silicon face ensure smooth frequency response. When combined, the cleanest, most natural sound possible is created. The second generation increases horn size for a larger soundstage and enhanced directivity.
LINEAR TRAVEL SUSPENSION (LTS) TITANIUM DIAPHRAGM TWEETER
The exclusive Linear Travel Suspension minimises distortion for enhanced, detailed performance. LTS tweeters are a hallmark of previous Reference lines, making it a core component of some of the best speakers in the world.
VENTED TWEETER DESIGN
The vented tweeter housing reduces standing waves that create unwanted harmonics, resulting in enhanced detail and clarity in high frequency reproduction.
CERAMETALLIC WOOFERS – ALL NEW DESIGN
A signature feature on the Reference Premiere series, Cerametallic™ woofers are exceptionally rigid and lightweight for minimal distortion and maximum efficiency. New voice coils are 70% larger in diameter resulting in improved power handling and greater cone control for greater linearity and flawless reproduction. New aluminium shorting rings reduce distortion as well as increased power handling and the new motor structure improve transit response with more control with greater speed and accuracy.
Utilizing Tractrix geometry, the Reference Premiere ports allow for the most efficient, fastest air transfer from the cabinet, which reduces port noise for punchier low frequencies. Klipsch Tractrix ports have custom designed inner flares that help reduce air turbulence entering the port. Less turbulent air helps reduce port noise for cleaner, more powerful bass.
NEW AND IMPROVED INPUT PANEL
Featuring audiophile-grade wire and easily accessible aluminium binding posts for any connection type.
FURNITURE GRADE MATERIALS AND FINISHES
Finishes include ebony vinyl and walnut vinyl that boast satin painted baffles using a scratch-resistant material.
The attractive grille attaches magnetically for an elegant transition from powerful showstopper to discrete performance piece and the runner bumpers of the previous generation have been replaced with Cork pads, for increased security on a stand or table.
