The RB-61 provides lively, punchy sound that suits rock and electronic music very well ; The RB-61 doesn't require high power to perform optimally ; The RB-61 looks good, and offers bi-wiring/bi-amping capability

The RB-61's overall forward tonalbalance and aggressive presentation creates a lack of overalltransparency and neutrality with acoustic, jazz, and classical material ; The RB-61 is not small or light, which highlights its lack of on-board mounting...

The Klipsch RB-61 provides a lot of bang for the buck, but sometimestoo much. It's very easy to drive, utilizes premium parts, and providesa very lively, detailed, crisp sound with a lot of punch. However, thatbang comes with a price, in the form of...

Product Specifications

Because compromise isn't an option, the Reference Series RB-61 lets listeners experience all the power, detail and emotion of cinematic spectacles and riveting concert performances. With its superior technology and elegant design, this speaker definitely stands out in a crowd. In the RB-61, the Exclusive Tractrix Horns technology has been refined to include improved throat geometry for a more genuine, lifelike sound. Behind the horn lies a 1-inch titanium tweeter with a large ceramic motor structure to provide a unique combination of precision, clarity and effortless power. The RB-61's front-firing port eliminates turbulence noise and makes installation into custom cabinetry a breeze. Increased baffle ribbing around the horn mouth dramatically improves acoustics across the sonic range. For signal purity and perfect driver integration, the crossover on the RB-61 features the finest components and Klipsch custom internal wiring.
