This amazing speaker does not require any valuable shelf or floor space as it is an In-Wall speaker.

ABOUT KLIPSCH IN WALL SPEAKERS

It has bass and treble switches that come with custom EQ which enables the speaker to be modified to suit its environment. It also comes with IR receiver knockout holes that enable infrared repeater, enabling installers to be able to perform custom configuration. Also, Klipsch R-5502-W II offers the audience unlimited flexibility.

It is timbre that can be used in combination with all of Klipsch’s 5000 architectural products, so users are allowed to mix and match to produce a high-performance, discreet home theater or stereo system that will suit their needs.

In-wall Placement

This amazing speaker is designed to work in any standard wall, ceiling or drop ceiling. The company designs its in-wall speakers for long-term performance. The minimum construction requirement requires drywall or other mounting surfaces to be at least 3/8 inch thick.

If the user wants to maximize performance, the speaker should be placed equidistant from the audience and along a common wall to ensure the best stereo effect. When the listening position may vary or for background listening environments, users can place the speaker wherever they think is most convenient for them, although in this situation stereo imaging may be affected.

Infrared Sensor Mount

This is designed exclusively for in-wall models. 2000, 3000 and 5000 series in-wall speakers often come with a ½ inch infrared sensor locator on the baffle.

Pivoting Horn

The 3000 and 5000 series speakers often come with a pivoting horn that enables the user to toe-in the horn. However, it should be noted that before the grille is installed, the horn should be carefully aimed towards the listening area.

90×90 Square Tractrix Horn  

90x90 Klipsch Tweeter

It comes with a 90×90 square Tractrix horn which makes use of a square horn throat that is paired to a square horn mouth to boost high-frequency responses and extension. It is also used to improve efficiency and reduce distortions of sound.  It also improves dynamics and imaging. This enables it to deliver the cleanest and most realistic sound possible.

It is constructed with a compressed molded rubber that adds high-frequency damping that is used to reduce harshness and enhance detail. This enables this amazing floor-standing speaker to produce the cleanest and most natural sound possible.

Titanium Diaphragm Compression Driver

It also comes with a 1 inch (2.5 cm) Titanium diaphragm compression driver mated to pivoting 90° x 90° square Tractrix Horn which is capable of maximizing dynamics for improved and detailed performance. The Titanium diaphragm compression driver is also capable of producing flat in-room frequency response with low distortion and high efficiency. The Titanium diaphragm compression driver is not as popular as the Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) Titanium Tweeter which is one of the most common features of Klipsch previous Reference lines as well as the flagship Klipsch Palladium series. But it is still one of the core components of some of the best speakers in the whole world.

Spun Copper Cerametallic Woofers

Its Cerametallic woofers are made of spun copper and they represent the pinnacle of Klipsch driver design thereby maintaining its impressive rigidity and lightweight construction for minimal cone breakup and distortion. Since it is used with Tractrix Horn Loaded LTS Tweeter, it also provides speaker efficiency highest in its class.

Abs Cabinet with White Paintable Frame and Grille

It comes with a modern aesthetic with complete durability that enables the speaker to seamlessly blend into the décor of any interior.

Strong, Flexible, Removable Grille
