Klipsch has unveiled its new Reference Premiere Collection subwoofers, beginning at $749, which provide a lot deeper bass and enhanced cosmetics.
The vary breaks down like this:
- RP-1600SW ($1,799): 16-inch woofer, 1,600 watts (peak), 14.5-175Hz
- RP-1400SW ($1,399): 14-inch woofer, 1,000 watts (peak), 16-141Hz

- RP-1000SW ($749): 10-inch woofer, 600 watts (peak), 19-131Hz
The largest change to the brand new fashions is that the cupboards are a lot deeper, which permits even the entry-level mannequin to succeed in all the way down to a claimed 19Hz. All the subwoofers embrace the corporate’s proprietary Cerametallic drivers and a high-efficiency amplifier. The subs function a brand new Aerofoil slot port design that minimizes port noise distortion.
The cosmetics have seen an improve on earlier fashions, with rounded corners, a scratch-resistant ebony vinyl end and guitar-like management knobs. The entrance has a woven material grill and the underside consists of shock-absorbing rubber ft.
I am trying ahead to listening to the brand new vary — particularly the RP-1000SW — as my CNET AV take a look at lab included a Klipsch subwoofer as a part of the reference system for a few years. Klipsch is owned by Voxx, the mum or dad firm of Pioneer, Onkyo and plenty of different audio manufacturers.
