The R-5502-W II in-wall left, center or right (LCR) speaker has what it takes to deliver compelling music and movie sound performances just as the artists and directors intended -- it simply does it without taking up any valuable floor or shelf space.
- Perfect for left, center or right channel use
- Easily mounts horizontally or vertically
- Horn-loaded technology increases acoustic output while significantly reducing distortion
- Treble and midbass attenuation switches and IR receiver knock out
- Elegant new, low-profile slim,trim magnetic grille
The R-5502-W II employs dual, updated 5.25-inch Cerametallic™ woofer cones for fast accurate sound with even tighter bass while a 1-inch Titanium tweeter mated to a pivoting Tractrix® Horn generates pinpoint imaging and flat in-room frequency response. The addition of a Linear Travel Suspension to the tweeter increases high frequency detail and smoothness. This in-wall speaker also consistently delivers thrilling realistic sound whether it’s installed vertically as a left or right channel speaker or horizontally as a center channel speaker.
Bass and treble switches with custom EQ settings allow the speaker to be tailored to its environment while an IR receiver knockout hole allows for an infrared repeater bringing custom configuration to installers. Available in a paintable white finish the R-5502-W II can be paired with the Klipsch IK-502-W installation kit (sold separately).
Klipsch R-5502-W II
VERSATILE LCR SPEAKER UPDATED WITH THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY
The Klipsch R-5502-W II maintains the core technology use of a premium 1” Titanium compression driver (tweeter) mated to an exclusive Tractrix® Horn combined with dual 5.25” Cerametallic™ woofers in a 2-way design. The R-5502-W II is perfect as a very powerful front right, left or center channel speaker and can fill the largest rooms with sound. Now with a new low profile, more elegant grill and refinements to both high frequency and low frequency reproduction, it continues as the perfect 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 stainless steel, 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 90° x 90° dispersion pattern directs high frequencies identically whether speaker is mounted vertically or horizontally (as a center). Horn pivots +/- 15° to aim sound 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™ WOOFERS
The dual woofers utilize solid Aluminum diaphragms, anodized to add stiffness and provide perfect damping, and have a new hi-tech look that also delivers increased rigidity for even tighter, more defined bass. The new integrated dust caps further strengthen the cones and help ventilate the voice coils for increased driver durability.
PREMIUM, HIGH DEFINITION NETWORK
The perfect blending between drivers for full bandwidth balanced response.
TREBLE AND MIDBASS ATTENTUATION SWITCHES
Allows reduction of high and/or low frequency output in challenging install applications such as overly reflective rooms or corner placement, allowing a better frequency balance..
