Klipsch, the official headphone and portable audio partner of the McLaren Formula 1 team, is pleased to add The Fives McLaren Edition powered speakers to its collection of co-branded products. Klipsch The Fives McLaren Edition powered speakers are said to connect to virtually everything — including a TV via HDMI-ARC. They also include an integrated phono pre-amp, Bluetooth wireless technology, digital optical, analogue RCA, USB inputs and a subwoofer output.
They feature a DSP amplifier for high-resolution audio (192kHz/24-bit decoding), as well as the supreme strength and ultra-low mass of carbon fibre for enhanced performance. Klipsch engineers designed the high-excursion carbon fibre woofer cone to ensure maximum output with minimal cone break up for “detailed, deep, dynamic bass and decreased distortion”.
Other enhancements include:
Hand painted super matte black paint finish with accents of McLaren’s signature papaya color.
Signature papaya tweeters, control panel, nylon braided speaker and power cables.
Stability pad inspired by Formula 1’s intermediate racing tire tread.
The Fives are compatible with the Klipsch Connect app, giving users access to customise EQ and subwoofer volume settings, dynamic bass, night listening mode, over-the-air firmware upgrades, a digital quick-start guide, and much more. Klipsch The Fives McLaren Edition powered speakers are available now for £1,349/€1,499 per pair.
