Fill your room with sweet sound
Klipsch's Reference Premiere tower speakers have a lively sonic profile that makes them great for movies, music, and games — just about anything you throw at them. Klipsch has given this popular series a significant update, and the RP-6000F II sits right in the middle of the new tower lineup. This speaker has no trouble pumping out sound in larger rooms thanks to its wide sound dispersion and high sensitivity. It features two upgraded 6-1/2" woofers for punchy bass and midrange, and a 1" horn-loaded tweeter for clear highs.
Upgraded tweeter and horn
The 1" LTS (Linear Travel Suspension) tweeter features a vented housing to reduce standing waves that can compromise sound quality. The hallmark Tractrix® horn it's housed in has a widened mouth for better soundstaging and directivity. That means a wider "sweet spot" overall and better imaging within that sweet spot. The horn also sports a soft silicone face and a unique phase plug to keep the highs smooth and non-fatiguing.
Under-the-hood driver upgrades
Metallic drivers aren't anything new for Klipsch speakers, but the company has made significant improvements to the motor structures behind the cones. Each woofer has a 70% larger voice coil for greater control, speed, and accuracy. The woofers also have new aluminum shorting rings that help reduce distortion and let the drivers handle some extra power.
A new cabinet for better sound
Klipsch also upgraded the RP-6000F II's cabinet. This go-around, they used additional bracing throughout and divided the cabinet into sections. That helps to reduce sound-altering cabinet resonance and vibration and improves clarity.
The cabinet has two rear-firing Tractrix ports that help deepen the speaker's bass response. Their unique horn shape promotes more efficient airflow in and out of the cabinet, minimizing port noise and low-frequency distortion.
Since this speaker uses a ported cabinet, you don't want to place it up against a wall. Instead, I recommend giving the speaker some "breathing room" by pulling it away from your wall a little. Its bass response will thank you.
