The peak of Klipsch Reference performance
Klipsch's Reference Series has always offered excellent sound at prices that make them an excellent value. The R-800F is the flagship tower in the Reference lineup, featuring two large woofers and a refined tweeter to deliver rich, spacious sound. It has no trouble working with most receivers thanks to its high-efficiency drivers, and it works well in two-channel stereo and home theater applications alike.
Each of the R-800F's 8" 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.
