Klipsch RP-500M II Reference Premiere 5.25-Inch Bookshelf Speaker (Ebony)

A new, larger 90-degree x 90-degree silicone composite hybrid Tractrix horn provides an incredibly efficient transfer of high-frequency waves into the listening area for crisper, clearer sound. The phase plug and compression-molded silicone face ensure smooth frequency response.

LTS Titanium Diaphragm Tweeter

The exclusive 1-inch LTS minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performance. LTS tweeters are a hallmark of previous Reference Premiere Series, making it a core component of some of the best speakers in the world.

Vented Tweeter Design

The vented tweeter housing reduces standing waves that create unwanted harmonics, resulting in enhanced detail and clarity in high-frequency reproduction.

All New Cerametallic Woofer

A signature feature on the Reference Premiere series speakers, the 5.25-inch Cerametallic woofer has been updated for absolutely flawless sound reproduction, minimum distortion, and maximum efficiency. The redesigned woofer will deliver the power, detail, and emotion you expect from a Klipsch Reference Premiere speaker.

Tractrix Port

Utilizing Tractrix geometry, the Reference Premiere port allows for the most efficient, fastest air transfer from the cabinet, which reduces port noise for punchier low frequencies and cleaner, more powerful bass.

Klipsch RP-500M II Reference Premiere 5.25-Inch Bookshelf Speaker (Ebony) SKU: RP500MII-EBONY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound. Great sound. Slim attractive design. Needs a base too for full sound effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They Sound Amazing ! I upgraded from a old pair of Klipsch ICON W-14's which in their day were amazing, however this speaker broadened the soundstage and allows for increased depth in music and movie watching. They are an incredible value to performance option ! I highly recommend these, especially due to the improved wide dispersion of the horn tweeter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected Replaced two of my smaller Klipsch satellite speakers. I was missing the mid tones. No longer. These speakers sound so good. Especially considering the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small speakers, big sound. I am very pleased with these speakers. They look good, are well made, and sound great. They are still breaking in a bit, but they are impressive so far. They sound very good without a subwoofer and have more punch than you would expect from a 5". However, adding a small sub (8" or 10") to carry some of the weight on the low end (90Hz was the sweet spot in my room for the crossover) allows the midrange and treble to be just that much sweeter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers RP500M II These bookshelf speakers sound great and tonality is balanced. In addition, I have a Sony 10" subwoofer. Overall, it exceeded my expectation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super clean I have had these about three months and absolutely love them, super clean, crisp room filling sound. paired with wireless Klipsch Sub sort of needed for lower volumes to give fullness don't need a sub for higher volumes at all.
