Creating a benchmark in architectural audio excellence, the installer-friendly Klipsch R-5800-W II in-wall loudspeaker delivers a level of realism and subtlety that surpasses and even intimidates competing designs.
- Horn-loaded technology increases acoustic output while significantly reducing distortion
- Pivoting Tractrix® Horn tweeter for clear sound in any location
- Treble and midbass attenuation switches and IR receiver knock out
- Elegant new, low-profile slim,trim magnetic grille
By featuring an updated 8-inch Cerametallic woofer cone designed for even tighter bass and a 1-inch Titanium tweeter mated to a square 90-degree by 60-degree pivoting Tractrix Horn, there's no denying this speaker's natural precision clarity and efficiency. The addition of a Linear Travel Suspension to the tweeter increases high frequency detail and smoothness. The pivoting horn allows listeners to point the sound directly to the main listening area, reducing reflected sounds that blur sonic details and creating a large soundstage with well-defined imaging. Treble and bass contour switches allow sound customization in less-than-ideal speaker placement positions.
Available in a paintable white finish, the R-5800-W II can be paired with the Klipsch IK-800-W installation kit (sold separately) that incorporates a mud ring breakaway wire tie and color-coded brackets for easy speaker size identification. It also includes perforated metal wings that easily fasten to the studs via screws staples or nails. Painted white for easy marking and placement these metal wings can be folded around the edge of the studs if necessary.
Klipsch R-5800-W II
UPDATED WITH THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY
The Klipsch R-5800-W II maintains the core technology use of a premium 1” Titanium compression driver (tweeter) mated to an exclusive Tractrix® Horn combined with a large 8” Cerametallic™ woofer in a 2-way design. Now with a new low-profile, more elegant grill and refinements to both high frequency and low frequency reproduction, it continues as a high-performance choice for everything from 2-channel music playback to full, large room surround sound use.
THE UPDATE FOR YOUR EYES: THE NEW SLIM, TRIM GRILLE
With an all new grille, the visible frame size is reduced by 90% and grill depth is reduced by 80% over the previous design, for a more edge-to-edge consistent look that blends in with the wall more attractively The new aluminum, paintable, magnetic grille attaches tightly and securely with ease to virtually eliminate resonant distortion.
PIVOTING TRACTRIX HORN
Klipsch horn-loaded technology increases acoustic output while significantly reducing distortion. The horn’s +/- 15° pivoting capability allows its 90° x 60° dispersion pattern to be aimed directly at the main listening area. This feature sends more direct sounds to the listener and less reflected sounds for more detailed sound, wider dynamics and better vocal clarity.
TITANIUM DIAPHRAGM COMPRESSION DRIVER (TWEETER) WITH LINEAR TRAVEL SUSPENSION (LTS)
Combined with the Tractrix Horn, the one-inch, solid-formed, very lightweight metallic diaphragm works in conjunction with a precise phasing plug at the horn throat to create a highly efficient driver with excellent transient response and lack of distortion. The new Linear Travel Suspension assures the most precise diaphragm excursion, increasing high-frequency detail and smoothness.
MACHINE-SPUN CERAMETALLIC™ WOOFER
The solid Aluminum diaphragm, anodized to add stiffness and provide perfect damping, has a new hi-tech look that also delivers increased rigidity for even tighter, more defined bass. The new integrated dust cap further strengthens the cone and helps ventilate the voice coil for increased driver durability.
PREMIUM, HIGH DEFINITION NETWORK
The perfect blending between drivers for full bandwidth balanced response
TREBLE AND MIDBASS ATTENTUATION SWITCHES
