The RC-42 II, the smallest, most affordable Reference Series center speaker, boasts incredible craftsmanship and uncompromising audio performance. With its exceptional clarity and engaging soundstage, the RC-42 II lets you hear every word, every detail of your favorite movies.
The RC-42 II is loaded with Klipsch’s proprietary Tractrix Horn technology which produces a unique combination of precision, clarity and effortless power. Finished in a beautiful black ash wood-grain vinyl veneer, the RC-42 II is guaranteed to complement any décor. Magnetically shielded drivers prevent interference from TV and other electronics.
Tractrix Horn Technology Klipsch’s Tractrix Horn technology leads to lifelike sound, more output using less energy, improved reliability, reduced distortion and a large soundstage with well-defined imaging.
Cerametallic Woofer Cones Klipsch’s RC-42 II features light, yet rigid Cerametallic woofer cones with specially treated aluminum to help better dampen and prevent distortion.
Titanium Tweeter with Linear Travel Suspension This trickle-down technology from Klipsch’s flagship Palladium Series provides an open, natural sound, making you feel as if you’re in the studio with the recording artist or on the set of a film.
Enhanced Crossover Frequency A crossover frequency at 1700Hz offers smooth on-axis and off-axis integration for enhanced sound performance.
This review is from: Klipsch Reference RC-42 II Center Speaker Single
Pros: This speaker produces very clear highs and really helps enhance vocals. I use it 90% for 5.1 surround sound and 10% for music. It's crisp and clear. Shattering glass couldn't sound more real! It's true that once you hear Klipsch, you'll never change to anything else.
Other Thoughts: The room I have this speaker in is a basement that's 12ft X 25ft and it's strong enough to keep the dialogue clear and undistorted. I am running some Sony SSF-5000s (Until I can get some more Klipschs) as my mains and some 5 inch bookshelfs (also to be upgraded to Klipsch) as surrounds, all powered by a Yamaha 465 receiver (excellent as well, would definitely recommend).
