Discreet but not understated, the high-performance and installer-friendly R-3800-W II in-wall loudspeaker delivers all the gusto you'd expect from Klipsch.
* Horn-loaded technology increases acoustic output while significantly reducing distortion
* Pivoting Tractrix® Horn compression driver tweeter with a Linear Travel Suspension
* Treble attenuation switch and IR receiver knock out
* Single piece grille frame and rustproof aluminum grille
* Elegant new, low-profile slim,trim magnetic grille
Featuring an 8-inch IMG woofer a 1-inch aluminum tweeter mated to a square 90-degree by 60-degree pivoting Tractrix Horn as well as a treble contour switch, this dynamic in-wall speaker gives you plenty of bang for your buck and brings high-quality entertainment into your home without taking up valuable floor space. Not to mention because the pivoting horn allows listeners to point the sound where they want it to go, the direct to reflected energy ratio is high in the listening area creating a large soundstage with well-defined imaging.
Available in a paintable white finish, the R-3800-W II can be paired with the Klipsch IK-800-W installation kit (sold separately). This revolutionary kit design 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-3800-W II
UPDATED WITH THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY
The Klipsch R-3800-W II maintains the core technology use of a rigid 1” Aluminum compression driver (tweeter) mated to an exclusive Tractrix® Horn combined with a large 8” IMG 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.
ALUMINUM DIAPHRAGM COMPRESSION DRIVER (TWEETER) WITH LINEAR TRAVEL SUSPENSION (LTS)
Combined with the Tractrix Horn, the one-inch stiff, yet lightweight, metallic diaphragm works in conjunction with a precise phasing plug at the horn throat to create a very 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 IMG WOOFER
The solid IMG woofer cone has been strengthened for even more accurate bass reproduction.
TREBLE ATTENTUATION SWITCH
For reduction of high frequency output in challenging install applications such as overly reflective rooms, allowing for a better frequency balance.
FRONT IR KNOCKOUT
Allows installation of standard, .5” tube-type, IR repeater device.
