Hybrid Tractrix® Horn Technology
Klipsch proprietary Tractrix® horn-loading technology ensures that the RP-500C center speaker's high-frequency sound energy is directed to the listener, reducing unwanted, artificial vibrations from wall-bouncing sounds – so you hear the clearest , most detailed , lifelike sound .
Klipsch Reference Premiere series speakers feature a compression molded silicone surface mated to a 90° x 90° Tractrix horn for smoother frequency response. Klipsch computer-built phase plugs act as a mechanical filter to provide a smooth , flat frequency response while protecting the tweeter from damage.

Exclusive Linear Motion Suspension minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performance. LTS tweeters are the most distinguishing feature of the Reference series, making it a key component of the best speakers in the world.
VENTILATED TWEETER DESIGN
The new vented tweeter section reduces standing waves that create unwanted harmonics, resulting in improved detail and clarity in high frequency reproduction.
