Klipsch is always one of the first names that come to our mind when we talk about speakers in general! It is a very well-known company that is around the world for many years now. As a brand, they produced many types of speakers, sound bards, as well as headphones!
In this article, you will find specific and detailed information, about Klipsch RP-260F. It is an amazing floor standing speaker that knows the needs of the users and brings them to you in the best way possible! It includes a great design and built overall that are also related to the sound quality! Why so? Well, the design and build are related to the sound quality because Klipsch has designed and made this speaker in the best way possible so that everything is related to each other.
Without further ado, let’s take a closer look and let’s dive into the details of Klipsch RP-260F!
This Klipsch bad boy is really well built, has fantastic looks, easy motions, and outstanding highs, mids, and lows. It also features a Tractrix Port and, of course, is Dolby Atmos ready.
Design and Build
Design-wise, Klipsch RP-260F is a very good-looking floor-standing speaker. It comes in with an ebony color, meaning that it is a heavy black or a very dark brown. The measurements of the speaker are 17.65 x 9.01 x 39.6 inches and it has a weight of 49.5 pounds. Even though it may sound and look a little bit heavy, the speaker can be easily moved around your room or your house. It comes with rubber and spike feet as well. The rubber parts help you safely place the speaker on tiles or woody floors, while the optional spikes fully increase the stability while putting it on carpeted floors.
On the front part of it, you will encounter its very pretty woofers as well, which come in a cerametallic material and a gold orangish color. Both of the woofers that are added to this speaker measure 6.5 inches. There is also included a tweeter which is 1 inch and it is fully made of titanium which is the greatest material that a tweeter can be made of since it can handle super high power levels.
The modern look of this speaker comes also from the premium wood grain polymer that fully covers the speaker on its sides and the back part. It also comes with a removable grille that attaches automatically, to the front part of the speaker. There are magnets that are put within the baffle and there’s no movement once the grille is put on. Also, another important thing that you will notice on this speaker is the 90×90 Hybrid Tractrix Horn (more on it below).
Sound Quality and Features
Here goes the most important thing that all of you, me included, need to know about a speaker. What does it sound like and what are the features that are included on the speaker that bring the sound quality?
Based on the dual woofers and the titanium tweeter that this speaker owns, Klipsch RP-260F fully takes your music or anything else that you are listening to to the next level! The sound in general is very clear and the sound comes out very detailed and lifelike. With a frequency response from 34 Hz up to 25 kHz, a sensitivity of 97dB, and an impedance of 8 ohms the highs are fully crispy, the mids are perfectly clear, ad the lows bring to you a perfect bass accuracy.
The clarity of the sound on this speaker comes from the Tractrix port. It is a technology that ensures high-frequency energy, and it fully reduces the artificial reverb and unwanted sounds. All of this happens in order to bring the best sound possible and a bigger bass response.
If any of you don’t know what surround sound is, let me tell you.
The surround sound adds one or more channels from loudspeakers, to the side or behind the listener. It is able to create the sensation of sound as if it comes from different horizontal directions around the listener. Since this is all clear, this speaker owns a surround sound of 5.1, meaning that it uses five audio channels.
Klipsch made this speaker Dolby Atmos ready! This means that the Klipsch RP-260F is a perfect fit in order to add one of Klipsch’s Dolby Atmos channel speakers.
Klipsch RP-260F is a speaker that performs well in any place, but still, there are some specifications that would help the speaker bring the best of it.
In case you use two speakers of the same category, in this case, Klipsch RP-260RP, it is suggested that you should put these speakers at a distance of 6-15 inches apart so that the sound coming out of them won’t be messed up.
The speaker should have a little bit of distance depending on where you put it on. When near the walls, the speaker should have at least 2 feet of space in between the speaker itself and the wall, so that the bass will be smoother.
