NEW HORN AND GRILLE

Klipsch redesigned the Tractrix® horn from a 60×90 horn to a 90×90 horn for a wider dispersion area. This square horn mouth is paired with a circular horn throat for enhanced soundstaging, while maintaining the dynamic, powerful sound of a Klipsch speaker. Strong, flexible grilles magnetically detach revealing a clean baffle. Unlike the Reference II series, the magnets have been embedded within the baffle for superior high frequency diffraction reduction. A brushed polymer veneer adds more modern aesthetic for the Reference Premiere series. The clean, seamless lines of these speakers allow them to be incorporated into any decor.

TECHNOLOGY

TRACTRIX® HORN TECHNOLOGY

Klipsch exclusive 90×90º Tractrix® horn technology ensures that the R-52C high frequency energy is aimed at the listener and reduces artificial reverb or filtering caused by indirect sound bouncing off of walls. Using this proprietary focused technology gives you the best clarity, dynamics, and detail from your movies and music.

LINEAR TRAVEL SUSPENSION TWEETER

WITH KAPTON® SUSPENSION

Klipsch exclusive Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) Aluminium tweeter minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performances. Using Kapton®, an extremely light and rigid material, in the tweeter suspension provides high efficiency and improve resolution and detail. LTS tweeters are a hallmark of Klipsch speakers, making them some of the best speakers in the world.

SPUN COPPER IMG WOOFERS

Injection Molded Graphite (IMG) woofer cones are exceptionally light while being extremely rigid – providing remarkable low frequency response, with minimal cone breakup and distortion. When paired with the Tractrix Horn-Loaded LTS Tweeter, it provides speaker efficiency highest in its class.

SLEEK DESIGN

Exposed fasteners, low profile magnetic grilles and a scratch-resistant, textured wood grain vinyl give the R-51M bookshelf speakers a polished, modern appearance.

HIGH QUALITY CABINET + CLOSED DESIGN

Reinforced MDF construction reduces cabinet vibration for less audible coloration and improved sonic accuracy – giving you the ultimate listening experience that’s built to last. The closed back design of the R-52C gives you flexible placement options with optimal bass response regardless of your entertainment system shelving.

REVIEWS

Digital Trends Black

Klipsch’s Reference Premiere system aims to deliver some serious bang for your buck, and they are wildly successful at doing so. Klipsch has trickled down the technology behind some of its ultra-high-end speakers to the Reference Premiere series, offering the company’s best sound for the dollar yet. Caleb Denison | Digital Trends

Overall, Klipsch’s system pulled off a performance that left my jaw on the floor more than a few times. Indeed, it’s probably the most dynamic and impactful surround system I’ve auditioned thus far… Klipsch speakers are capable of playing at reference levels without causing listener fatigue. This system can do precisely that, and a whole lot more, which is why it earns my highest recommendation. Mark Henninger | AVS Forum
