Klipsch Reference Premiere subwoofers
Klipsch have announced four new subwoofers designed to match its Reference Premiere speakers. The Klipsch Reference Premiere subwoofers are “hyper-efficient with the optimal balance between amplifier power, driver capability and cabinet volume.”
The Klipsch Reference Premiere subwoofers consists of four powered models:
RP-1600SW (RRP £1,849 / €1,999) has a 16-inch woofer with 1600W of peak power
RP-1400SW (RRP £1,399 / €1,499) has a 14-inch woofer with 1000W of peak power
RP-1200SW (RRP £1,099 / €1,199) has a 12-inch woofer with 800W peak power
RP-1000SW (RRP £899 / €999) has a 10-inch woofer with 600W peak power
All the new Klipsch models have a front-firing spun copper Cerametallic woofer that delivers “remarkably low-frequency response with minimal distortion”. The built-in amplifier features an analogue preamp design and a Class D output stage. Proprietary internal geometry with a new Aerofoil slot port design minimizes port noise “for clean, undistorted low frequencies”. The RCA and WA-2 wireless inputs can be used simultaneously, enabling a single subwoofer to connect to multiple speaker systems in a room.
The scratch-resistant ebony vinyl finish covers the entire cabinet, while rounded corners, shock-absorbing rubber feet, steel grille posts and a woven cloth grille ensure a premium look and feel.
