KLH Beacon Surround Speakers

 

One of the most hallowed nameplates in the history of home audio, KLH is back with a full line of new-design speakers – and a rededication to the company’s original mission to deliver an affordable audiophile experience. The Beacons, KLH’s surround speakers, are designed with that same concern for quality and value. If you are building a home theater, the Beacon meshes perfectly with KLH’s full line of front and center speakers. They share the same custom-designed woofer/midrange drivers of woven Kevlar and anodized aluminum dome tweeters, as well as similar crossover circuitry of the highest-quality components. With solid, sturdy MDF cabinetry of real black oak veneer, and a sealed cabinet that employs acoustic suspension principles for clarity and control, the Beacon brings your favorite movies and soundtracks to life.

Features

 

Two-Way Surround Loudspeaker

The KLH Beacon is a two-way surround loudspeaker featuring twp high performance 1" Anodized Aluminum tweeters with linear response faceplates and two 5.25" Woven Kevlar mid/bass drivers with butyl rubber surrounds and powder-coated die-cast aluminum baskets. There are braided tinsel leads on all drivers. A custom multi-element crossover with high grade components ensures smooth and natural transition between drivers.

 

Acoustic Suspension MDF Enclosure

The KLH Beacon surround loudspeaker uses an acoustic suspension (sealed) enclosure for tight, accurate sound reproduction. The enclosure features MDF construction with custom designed internal low resonance driver chambers and bracing optimized through finite element analysis. The enclosure also has a brushed aluminum tweeter faceplate and driver fascia. The MDF enclosure is finished in a wood-grain black oak vinyl.

 

Applications

The KLH Beacon can be used as Surround and/or Surround Back speakers in a 5.1ch or 7.1ch home theater system. The Beacon surround speakers are sonically matched to work seamlessly with all other KLH speakers, and will deliver optimum performance in all home theater applications.

  • -  Placement Options: The placement of your surround speakers is very important in regard to home theater usage. The surround speakers complete the theater listening experience with ambient effects that put the listener in the middle of the action. The Beacon surround speakers can be placed behind or to either side of the main listening area.
  • -  Mounting Options: The KLH Beacon includes a 1/4"-20 threaded insert for using an optional wall-mount bracket (sold separately). You can also choose to place the surround speaker on stands or shelves. The included self-adhesive rubber feet add approximately 0.25" to the overall height of the speaker.

 

Binding Post Terminals

The KLH Beacon surround loudspeaker is outfitted with a set of nickel-plated binding post terminals that will accept bare wire (up 12AWG), pin-connectors, spade-lugs, and banana plugs (single only). A plastic cap must be removed from each binding post terminal to use banana plugs.
