Klipsch introduced Tuesday its Reference Dolby Atmos enabled home theater speakers, which can join the company’s popular Reference Premiere series speaker line-up to add new dimensionality to the home theater 3D-listening experience.

The new speakers use the same two-way, horn-loaded Dolby Atmos enabled speaker technologies that have given Klipsch Dolby Atmos models their distinctive sound and popularity.

Dolby Atmos is an object-based surround sound technology that produces 3D-like immersive sound qualities with a wide sound stage, clear authentic sound and the addition of overhead channels that surround listeners from all angles.

The company’s use of controlled directivity, which has been a core trait of Klipsch acoustic design principles for decades, and proprietary Tractrix horn technology, combine to meet the directivity and sensitivity requirements demanded to produce the most effective Dolby Atmos speaker sound experiences, the company said.

“As demand for Dolby Atmos technology has grown, we are excited to offer a wider range of options that deliver this immersive and emotive sound experience with all the power, detail and emotion that Klipsch is known for,” stated Rob Standley, Klipsch professional and component speaker general manager and VP.

The two-model Klipsch Reference Dolby Atmos line-up accompany the existing Reference Premiere series.

These new additions include the all-in-one Klipsch R-26FA tower speaker with integrated ceiling-reflected height channel for overhead Dolby Atmos effects and the Klipsch R-14SA elevation speakers, which enable adding the Dolby Atmos height channel effect to any existing bookshelf or tower speaker. It also can be used as a side surround speaker for standard surround formats.

Both models are made with Klipsch’s acclaimed copper-spun Injected Molded Graphite (IMG) woofers that, when paired with Klipsch Tractrix horn-loaded technology and Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) tweeters, produce maximum speaker efficiency, the company said.

The Klipsch R-26FA ($599 suggested retail, each) and R-14SA ($399 per pair) are available in a black brushed polymer finish and are available now at authorized Klipsch speaker retailers.
