Klipsch has just announced the launch of newly engineered Quintet surround speaker system. This fifth generation model offers significant technological refinements which promise to raise the bar in the all-in-one home theater category. Complete with four satellite speakers and a dedicated center channel speaker, the Quintet is a complete 5.1 home theater system that utilizes decades of Klipsch’s research and development experience.
Each Quintet speaker employs a new 90-degree by 90-degree Tractrix horn, designed to expand both placement flexibility and the main listening area without reducing overall sound clarity. Combined with the Tractrix horn, a lightweight aluminum tweeter creates a highly efficient driver with excellent transient response and lack of distortion. The new Linear Travel Suspension reduces distortion and enhances dynamics. Complete with an all-new long-throw injection molded graphite (IMG) woofers, the Quintet enables maximum impact and powerful output.
To further enhance the product’s build quality, its cabinets are made of professional AcoustaComp, a material that is naturally dense, rigid and acoustically insert. This specialized material, formed into the Quintet’s speaker cabinets with non-parallel walls to diminish internal standing waves, is truly the next generation in compact home speaker technology.
Offering listeners significant placement flexibility, each Quintet satellite speaker offers a keyhole mount and a ¼-inch 20-threaded inserts for maximum mounting flexibility. The center channel features dual keyhole inserts.
Available in a satin and brushed black finish, the Quintet retails for $549.99 (U.S. MSRP) and will be available for purchase at authorized retailers and http://www.klipsch.com in September 2012.
