Klipsch Reference RB-75

 

My friend Gene is a professional musician. Back in the early '80s, he used Klipsch Heresys as PA speakers in clubs. One hot August afternoon, I dropped by his Greenwich Village apartment. Just for fun, he set up the Heresys at home. Hot damn, I was...

Product Specifications

Klipsch has truly outdone itself by offering the ultimate power and detail of the RF-7 flagship floorstander in a bookshelf model. The RB-75 fills a room with brilliant sound while using minimal floor space. This new model expands the Reference bookshelf line and continues a legacy of best-selling, no-compromise sound. The easiest way to describe the RB-75 is simple. It rules. The RB-75 delivers superior sound through an 8-inch woofer and a high-performance compression driver. This professional quality tweeter utilizes a 1.75-inch titanium dome diaphragm and an enormous 14-ounce video-shielded magnet. Among tweeters designed for home loudspeakers, the RB-75 high-frequency driver is unrivaled for clarity, efficiency and power handling plus has the lowest possible levels of distortion. In order to increase sensitivity while minimizing room interactions that blur sonic detail, the tweeter is coupled to an exclusive Klipsch square 8-inch Tractrix Horn, which lends the RB-75 its controlled directivity. The woofer on the RB-75 is an enhanced version of Klipsch's distinctive, copper-colored Cerametallic material that is even stronger than before. This cone is made of an anodized aluminum that makes it extremely tough but does not take away from its elegance. The anodizing process converts its inner and outer surface to ceramic. The result is a rigid cone with superb damping characteristics that will not flex or resonate at frequencies within the woofer's operating range. Driving this cone is a massive, video-shielded magnet and high-temperature, long-excursion voice coil, for high efficiency and deep, powerful, articulate bass without breakup or distortion. The RB-75 also has a front-firing, flared port that allows for easy placement in a cabinet or against a wall. The RB-75 reproduces vibrant, lifelike sound due to a crossover network that uses extremely high-quality components, including Monster Cable Bandwidth Balanced wiring, polyester film-type capacitors and air-core inductors. These parts are mounted on a premium quality fiberglass epoxy circuit board. The RB-75 provides the ultimate adventure in sound because it realistically captures movie and concert experiences, putting listeners directly in the middle of the action.
