Klipsch RB-81 Speaker System

 

When I ran across the Klipsch RB-81—in the newly renovated Reference Series—I couldn't resist ordering a set. It's been years since I've reviewed a two-way design with a great big 8-inch woofer. The very concept brought on one of my increasingly...

This is my 5th different Klipsch Speaker Gone through Klipschs quintet II and SL, RB-51, RVX-42, RS-42 the best and for sure the last one. It is not compact and looks more like a small floorstander rather than a bookshelf. So first check you space but...

Klipsch RB-81 II (Black)

 

I've owned quite a few Klipsch speakers and have always liked their sonic immediacy, dynamics and presence. From my first set of Heresy I's from 1978 theirs have been among my favorites. The RB-81II's are no exception and are in my opinion among the...

Klipsch RB-81 II (Black)

 

This is a very good speaker which can you can display with confidence that it is among the better bookshelf speakers. I have many of the fine Klipsch reference speakers in an 11.2 system where they serve well as surround speakers. I'm sure in a smaller...

Klipsch RB-81 II (Black)

 

These speakers sound fantastic for rock music, funk rock, country, hip hop, and most other genres. I love their seperation and detail. They do provide adequate bass, but for large rooms a powered sub might be in order. I have used them both ways and...

Klipsch RB-81 II (Black)

 

Well what can I say, these speakers were the ones that let me fall in love with music. I auditioned other speakers in this price range including Polk, Infinity, Mirage, Paradigm, and others, but these were the ones I kept coming back to. Granted, there...

This is my review of tjhe rb-81 speakers. Well first of all, this is a big speaker. My previos tannoy dc6 speakers loked like a pair of small computer speakers compared to these beasts. Mine are in black and the finish is nice, nothing fancy but good...

Product Specifications

A towering achievement in a bookshelf design, the Reference Series RB-81 delivers unrivaled audio performance for those who demand the very best. With its high-end materials and cosmetic elegance, this flagship model is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Exclusive Tractrix Horns have always been the key component of this critically acclaimed series. In the RB-81, this 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-81 employs an 8-inch woofer for a solid bass foundation. This Cerametallic woofer with inverted copper dust cap exhibits a very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and superb damping characteristics. The RB-81'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-81 features the finest components and Klipsch custom internal wiring. The RB-81 comes with a low-diffraction, magnetically attached grille to further accentuate the elegance of this speaker.
