Ensures high-frequency energy of the RP-8000F floorstanding speaker is aimed directly at the listener and reduces unwanted, artificial reverb caused by indirect sound bouncing off walls - meaning you experience the most clear, detailed, lifelike sound possible.
Feature a compressed molded silicon face that is matted to the 90° x 90° Tractrix horn to reduces horn resonance for smoother frequency response.
The signature statement for both sound and aesthetics. This extremely light, rigid materials holds its shape while being able to deliver lower frequencies with maximum efficiency.
Reference Premiere woofers are housed in a non-resonating, stamped-steel basket that’s secured to a large magnet motor for exceptional efficiency and low distortion, and matched to our horn-loaded tweeters for optimal acoustic execution.
HYBRID TRACTRIX® HORN TECHNOLOGY
Klipsch proprietary Tractrix® horn loading technology ensures high-frequency energy of the RP-8000F floorstanding speaker is aimed directly at the listener and reduces unwanted, artificial reverb caused by indirect sound bouncing off walls - meaning you experience the most clear, detailed, lifelike sound possible.
A vented tweeter design reduces standing waves behind the tweeter diaphragm for a smoother high frequency reproduction. The titanium tweeter diaphragm's light weight yet rigid composition exceeds the performance of aluminum, polymer or silk tweeters.
Klipsch award-winning Linear Travel Suspension technology leverages a piston motion of the titanium diaphragm that lowers distortion and delivers real-to-life sound. A ceramic magnet housing provides premium performance, Klipsch Reference Premiere tweeters set the standard in acoustic reproduction.
TRACTRIX® PORT + DUAL TERMINALS
The rear Tractrix port is perfectly matched to the cabinet and woofers, creating ideal airflow with minimal distortion or turbulence even at the lowest frequencies.
The RP-8000F floorstanding speaker features dual input terminals so you can bi-wire or bi-amp your speakers for a custom, high-performance experience.
FINISHED TO PERFECTION
The RP-8000F ebony and walnut finishes boast satin painted baffles with a scratch resistant design. The cast aluminum feet provides a modern look with less resonance than MDF or ABS plastic. It is mechanically designed to minimize surface area in contact with the floor, decoupling the speaker for faster, tighter low frequencies and more detail.

Thank you for the compliment :) We love it as much as you do too!
A sound as imposing as it’s size.
Having lived with these speakers for sometime now, I think these are great value. The “bang for buck” value proposition is extremely high; they sound great, full and enjoyable and they sound surprisingly neutral. Not studio monitors by any means, but they do reveal recordings for what they are; play something well recorded and mixed and you’ll know. Play anything mastered badly and you’ll hate em, but don’t blame the speakers; they’re just doing their job. GIGO. Do note these are big speakers with a rear firing port, proper placement (as always) is key but distance from the rear wall and the actual space you have to place them matters.
Bottom line; extremely good value for money but make sure you have both the space and knowledge for them to sound their best.
Thanks Kelvin for your detailed review and love your appreciation for the RP-8000F coupled with great choice of music selection. We know you are going to love it the more you use it :)
