Anchor your Klipsch Reference home theater system
I like to think of the center channel speaker as the anchor point of any home theater speaker system. Without it, movie soundtracks can sound thin and lack immersion. Plus, it's crucial for the dramatic dialogue that carries your films forward. Klipsch's new R-50C is an affordable center channel speaker built to deliver impactful on-screen sound effects and keep voices loud and clear.
Each of the R-50C's 5-1/4" woofers uses spun-copper TCP (thermoformed crystalline polymer) for its cone material. Klipsch chose this material because of its smooth response and transparency. The woofer also uses some trickle-down technology from the company's more expensive Reference Premiere line. It has a similar cone shape and uses additional ribbing for extra rigidity, which reduces distortion at higher frequencies.
The hallmark 90°x 90° Tractrix® horn features an upgrade too. Klipsch widened its opening for more high-frequency directivity. That means the 1" LTS (Linear Travel Suspension) tweeter inside the horn has a wider "sweet spot" and delivers more detail inside that sweet spot.
The R-50C doesn't include any speaker wire.
All New 90° x 90° Tractrix Horn
An updated horn design, including increased outer horn dimensions, will deliver more power and emotion to your music and movies. Bigger definitely means better, with directivity control over a larger bandwidth of frequencies, resulting in a more accurate sound stage.
Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) Aluminum Tweeter
A hallmark of Klipsch speakers, the exclusive 1" LTS with Kapton Suspension tweeter minimizes distortion for more detailed performances. Aluminum is an extremely light and rigid material used in the tweeter assembly to provide high efficiency.
Spun-Copper Thermoformed Crystalline Polymer Woofers
Utilizing trickle-down technology from Klipsch's highly acclaimed Reference Premiere series of speakers, the 5.25" TCP woofers have steeper angling of the cones for a smoother response and improved accuracy and transparency.
Hear Every Word
Critical for catching every nuance of the dialogue in your favorite movies, music, and games, tapered array crossovers improve dispersion, resulting in better midrange definition. Tapered array crossover technology improves dispersion between the woofers and tweeters, a critical component in being able to clearly hear every word and nuance of your favorite movies, music, and games.
Slim High-Quality MDF Cabinet Design
Complimenting today's flat-screen TVs with an unobtrusive footprint, the next-gen Reference center channel speakers feature hidden fasteners and low-profile magnetic grilles. The reinforced 3/4" MDF construction reduces cabinet vibration for improved sonic accuracy.
