Test Bench: Klipsch RF-83 Home Theater Speaker System

 

The center and surround responses were measured with the speakers on a 6-foot stand, which gives anechoic results to approximately 200 Hz. Except for the subwoofer, all measurements are taken at a full 2 meters, which emulates a typical listening...

Consistent spread and balance of sound

The Klipsch RF-83 home theater speaker system is hugely capable and well-suited to a serious home theater whose first duty is true cinema-like movie playback. It demands a big room and display: My 50-inch TV looked positively puny flanked by the mighty...

Horn tweeter at it's best

 

The RF-83 are fantastic speakers. Klipsch uses horn tweeters for their speakers which some people find harsh, but I have no problem with horn tweeters. The sound is great for movies, games and home theater in general. Explosions sound huge and dynamic,...

Product Specifications

A force to be reckoned with, the Reference Series RF-83 floorstander sets a new standard for the line in both sound and style. With its high-end materials and slender design, this flagship tower delivers unrivaled audio performance for those who demand the very best.Exclusive Tractrix Horns have always been the key component of this critically acclaimed series. In the RF-83, this technology has been refined to include improved throat geometry for a more genuine, lifelike sound. Behind the horn lies a professional-grade 1.25-inch titanium diaphragm compression driver to provide a unique combination of precision, clarity and effortless power.Featuring an all-new driver layout, the RF-83 employs triple 8-inch high-output woofers with large motor structures for a solid bass foundation and greater control, output and power handling. These Cerametallic woofers with inverted copper dust caps exhibit a very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and superb damping characteristics.The RF-83's rigid cabinet offers improved internal cross-bracing to minimize panel vibrations that can color sound and three rear-firing ports to eliminate turbulence noise. Increased baffle ribbing in the lower panel and around the horn mouth dramatically improve acoustics across the sonic range. For signal purity and perfect driver integration, the crossover on the RF-83 features the finest components and Klipsch custom internal wiring. Premium binding posts ensure superior connectivity.The RF-83 comes with a knife-edge back and low-diffraction, magnetically attached grille to further accentuate the elegance of this speaker.
