Reference Powered Speaker Series Expanded by Klipsch
On Thursday, October 19, 2017, Klipsch®, a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation, announced new additions to its Reference™ Powered Speaker Series. Added to the Reference Powered Speaker Series are the new Klipsch R-28PF two-channel floorstanding speakers and R-14PM powered monitors.
While capable of connecting to digital, analog and wireless inputs, both of the new offerings eliminate the need for external receivers, and speaker wires. Included in the speakers are a 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converter and an RIAA-equalized phono preamplifier. This gives the speakers compatibility with TVs, computers, and turntables. The speakers also include Bluetooth® wireless technology for connecting to external devices (mobile phones, tablets, etc.). Finally, a subwoofer output port allows the listener to connect the speakers to an external powered subwoofer.
R-28PF Reference Powered Speaker Series Floorstanding Speaker
The R-28PF floorstanding speaker is a powered two-channel configuration that features dual 8” copper spun magnetically shielded IMG woofers, 1” linear travel suspension in Tractrix® horns, and a bi-amplified ultra low-noise 260 watt amplifier. Also included in these speakers are a digital crossover, an equalizer, and limiters designed to lessen distortion.
R-14PM Reference Powered Speaker Series Monitor Speaker
The Klipsch R-14PM is a powered monitor speaker that features one 4” copper spun magnetically shielded IMG woofer and ¾” LTS tweeters in Tractrix horns. These speakers also include an ultra low-noise 80W amplifier.
Pricing and Availability
The Klipsch Reference R-28PF floorstanding speakers have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $1,199 per pair. The Klipsch Reference R-14PM monitor speakers have an MSRP of $399 per pair. Both are available now at select retailers and at Klipsch.com.
