Details & Highlights

Product Highlights

    The Klipsch RS–42 II Reference Surround Speakers may be the perfect rear speaker for your home theater system. Cerametallic woofers are lightweight which results in lower distortion sound while the Tractrix® Horn technology provides high output realistic high frequencies while using less energy. Placement of rear surround sound speakers can be tricky for most theater rooms. In order to offer the most flexible placement options, Klipsch has included their exclusive Wide Dispersion Surround Technology (WDST) on this pair of loudspeakers. Localized and ambient sounds will be better than ever while the enhanced crossover will make a smooth transition between on–axis and off–axis integration.

    New and Improved

    Now in its fifth generation, Reference II speakers have even more content and superior sound quality for you to enjoy. You'll find re–engineered drivers throughout combined with a new crossover system that will capture your complete attention and excite your emotions. Improved cosmetics, including black metallic finished baffles, cerametallic woofers, new logos and feet, redefine the look of "big sound" throughout the line.

    Four Laws of the Klipsch Universe

    Starting in 1946, Paul W. Klipsch began implementing four design principles into every speaker he made. Based on his experience, he believed these engineering doctrines to be the foundation of great sound: High efficiency with low distortion, controlled directivity, flat frequency response and wide dynamic range. Klipsch modern speakers has remained faithful to Paul’s original vision and has resulted in loudspeakers that are stunningly powerful and precise.


    • Tractrix® Horn technology: Enjoy lifelike sound & more output while using less energy. This proven technology is also extremely reliable, has low distortion as well as an incredibly large soundstage. Your home theater will have better defined imaging than ever before with this pair of rear speakers.
    • Cerametallic woofer cones: These specially treated aluminum woofers are exceptionally lightweight and rigid resulting in lower distortion and clearer sound.
    • Titanium tweeter with linear travel suspension: This astonishing technology is borrowed from our flagship Palladium Series speaker and provides the listener with an open and natural sound. Feel like you’re in the recording studio or on the set of the film when you hear this speaker pair.
    • Wide Dispersion Surround Technology (WDST): If placement of rear speakers is a problem, WDST is the solution. No matter where you hang these speakers, both localized and ambient sounds will be flawless thanks to the flexibility of WDST.
    • Enhanced crossover frequencies: Whether seated directly in front of these rear speakers or off to the side, surround effects will transition smoothly thanks to Klipsch’s enhanced crossover.
