Klipsch unveils five new home cinema surround speakers

US loudspeaker company Klipsch has chosen CinemaCon 2014 in Las Vegas to announce five new home cinema surround speakers.

The new range consists of two 8in woofer models: KPT-8000-M and KPT-8060-H and three 12in woofer models: KPT-1200-M, KPT-1260-H and KPT-1200-VBM.

The speakers benefit from Klipsch's Tractix Horn technology, which provides "critical low-distortion with high efficiency for maximum output per watt."

Klipsch has also used elliptical inserts, or "mumps", to further improve sound dispersion. A 90-degree x 60-degree, or 100-degree x 100-degree dispersion pattern is possible depending on the model.

The range has been designed to be either ceiling or side-wall mounted and Klipsch claims they perfectly timbre-match its behind-screen systems for a seamless and immersive presentation.

All models also incorporate eight-degree or 15-degree angles and have threaded inserts for use with Klipsch or industry standard brackets.

The five-strong range of Klipsch surround speakers will be available from May with prices yet to be confirmed.

But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
