Klipsch R-5502-W II In-Wall LCR Speaker (Each/White)

The Klipsch R-5502-W II in-wall speaker can be installed as a front left speaker, center speaker and right speaker (LCR), or as in a stereo setup. Either configuration the Klipsch R-5502-W II deliver compelling music and movie sound performances just as the artists and directors intended. The Klipsch R-5502-W II employs dual, updated 5.25-inch Cerametallic woofer cones for fast accurate sound with even tighter bass while a 1-inch Titanium tweeter mated to a pivoting Tractrix Horn generates pinpoint imaging and flat in-room frequency response. The addition of a Linear Travel Suspension to the tweeter increases high frequency detail and smoothness. This in-wall speaker also consistently delivers thrilling realistic sound whether it’s installed vertically as a left or right channel speaker or horizontally as a center channel speaker. Bass and treble switches with custom EQ settings allow the speaker to be tailored to its environment while an IR receiver knockout hole allows for an infrared repeater bringing custom configuration to installers.

High Efficiency: The high-efficiency design of the Klipsch in-wall speakers allows you to get much more output than most in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Due to the long speaker wire runs that are common in whole-house audio systems, the power coming from the amplifier is significantly reduced by the time it reaches the speakers. The 92dB efficiency of this speaker means it will play much louder at low power than other less-efficient speakers.

2.5-Way Speaker Design: The Klipsch R-5502-W II uses a premium 1" Titanium compression driver (tweeter) mated to an exclusive Tractrix Horn, combined with dual 5.25" Cerametallic woofers in a 2.5-way design where one woofer produces only low frequencies, while the other woofer produces mid and low frequencies.

  • 1" Titanium Tweeter: The R-5502-W II utilizes a 1" Titanium dome compression tweeter mated to a 3" square, pivoting Tractrix Horn, which disperses the sound 90° horizontally and 90° vertically into the room. The horn design dramatically increases efficiency by enabling the speaker to produce more output using less energy. The horn-loaded tweeter pivots +/- 15° to allow you to point the sound to a specific location, and has more controlled directivity than a conventional dome tweeter.
  • Dual 5.25" Woofers: The R-5502-W II employs dual 5.25-inch Cerametallic woofer cones for fast, accurate sound with dynamic detail. The dual woofers utilize solid Aluminum diaphragms, anodized to add stiffness and provide perfect damping, and have a new hi-tech look that also delivers increased rigidity for even tighter, more defined bass. The new integrated dust caps further strengthen the cones and help ventilate the voice coils for increased driver durability.

Speaker Terminals: The speaker has a gold-plated pair of spring-loaded binding posts that can accept up to 12-gauge wire, single banana plugs, or pin connectors.

Tweeter/Mid-bass Attenuation Switches: If the speaker is installed in an acoustically bright room, such as a bathroom or a kitchen, you can attenuate the tweeter by -3dB, using the Tweeter Attenuation Switch. If the speaker is located in a corner and produces too much bass, you should adjust the Mid-bass level switch (-3dB). Both switches are located on the front of the speaker.

ABS Basket/Frame: The R-5502-W II has a sturdy ABS basket and frame. The frame can be painted to match any decor.

SlimTrim Magnetic Grille: With an all new grille, the visible frame size is reduced by 90% and grille depth is reduced by 80% over the previous design, for a more edge-to-edge consistent look that blends in with the wall more attractively. The new aluminum, paintable, magnetic grille attaches tightly and securely with ease to virtually eliminate resonant distortion.
