Expressiveness, Dynamics, and Versatility: Klipsch Reference R-41M Bookshelf Loudspeaker Is Equally Capable as a Two-Channel or Surround Performer
The value of the Klipsch Reference R-41M bookshelf loudspeaker goes beyond the fact the pint-sized marvel provides dimensions-belying punch, liveliness, and dynamics. It extends to the 7-pound overachiever's ability to be paired in either a dedicated two-channel system or employed as a surround in a home-theater system. Such versatility makes R-41M an astute choice for listeners who might expand their setup in the future while giving them the assurance the array they own now will sound fantastic, particularly given R-41M's budget-minded cost.
Fueled by a one-inch aluminum Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) vented tweeter with hybrid Tractrix horn and four-inch spun-copper injection-molded graphite (IMG) woofer, the 11.3 x 5.75 x 7.9-inch (HWD) R-41M is pure Klipsch through and through. Its proprietary 90° x 90° Tractrix horn architecture ensures high-frequency energy aims directly toward you and reduces unwanted reverb caused by indirect sound bouncing off walls. What's more, the LTS tweeter minimizes distortion and leverages the benefits of Kapton, an extremely light and rigid material for its suspension, resulting in high efficiency and improved resolution.
Visually, the bass-reflex R-610F looks far more expensive than its price may indicate. Its vibration-defeating, reinforced MDF cabinet features a scratch-resistant, textured wood-grain vinyl finish for both style and durability. Magnetically attached grilles, gold-plated binding posts, and a five-year manufacturer warranty round out a Reference Series bookshelf design ready for action.
