Las Vegas—Klipsch, leading global speaker and headphone manufacturer, has unveiled five new professional cinema surround speakers, including two 8-inch woofer models (KPT-8000-M and KPT-8060-H) and three 12-inch woofer designs (KPT-1200-M, KPT 1260-H and KPT-1200-VBM). These high-aesthetic, molded-cabinet models present a contemporary look that blends perfectly into today’s modern cinemas, said Rob Standley, regional vice president of commercial sales for Klipsch.

“With the rising desire for increased aesthetics in speakers visible to the audience, it is important that we continue to deliver our premium sound quality with attractive and elegant products,” noted Standley.

Designed for flexible ceiling or side-wall placements, the models work in budget conscious, small venues as well as grand auditoriums. For placement flexibility, all models incorporate 8° or 15° angles with threaded inserts to accommodate optional Klipsch or industry standard brackets.

Klipsch’s proprietary Tractrix® Horn technology provides critical low-distortion clarity with high-efficiency for maximum output per watt. The addition of elliptical inserts (or “mumps”) into the horns enhances coverage across the full dispersion area. Depending on the model, a 90° x 60° or a 100° x 100° dispersion pattern provides multiple options in covering a wide range of auditorium sizes with immersive sound.

Additionally, the KPT-1200-VBM incorporates Klipsch’s Virtual Boundary Array Technology (VBAT) using a pair of skewed horns that cover 140° horizontally with a tight 60° vertical pattern, flawlessly delivering broad sounds with detailed surround information. Enabled with a wide pattern, the VBAT technology takes full advantage of advanced, digital-sound formats.

The five new Klipsch professional cinema surround speakers will be available for purchase in May 2014.

For over 65 years, Klipsch (www.klipsch.com) has designed premium speakers. The brand’s diverse product portfolio encompasses home theater, professional cinema, installed whole-house contracting, commercial, computer speakers, wireless music speakers and headphones. Klipsch Group, Inc., is also a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation (NASDAQ: VOXX).

Film Review: The Wedding Ringer

Intermittently amusing bro-comedy trifle that confirms Kevin Hart's talent, though not his taste in material. More »

Paddington
Film Review: Paddington

This feel-good, looks-great first-time big-screen adaptation of the beloved British children's stories about a stowaway Peruvian bear finding his, er, bearings in London is much more than just, oops, bearable. The handsome production greatly benefits from a top-notch cast of some of the U.K.’s finest actors and its beautiful blend of CGI-enriched live action and animated ursine star. More »
