Klipsch Introduces Five Space-Saving Professional Cinema Speakers

In order to meet the high-performance audio needs of theater operators trying to conserve space, Klipsch Audio Technologies, a leading global supplier of professional cinema systems, is introducing five new compact commercial loudspeakers that allow these exhibitors to maximize their seating areas. Klipsch will display these speakers for the first time inside booth #1725 at ShoWest 2005 in Las Vegas.

Already the preferred loudspeaker brand of leading cinema operators that include Regal Cinemas, Malco Theatres, Harkins Theatres, Krikorian Premiere Theatres, Cinépolis Mexico, Cinemex Mexico and Caribbean Cinemas, Klipsch plans to further serve the market with the latest KPT-435-N, KPT-335-N, KPT-884, KPT-418 and CA-800T. Currently, Klipsch has earned approximately a 50 percent share of the new and retrofitted screens in the U.S. market. The numbers are closer to 60 percent in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Unlike many three-way cinema and stage systems on the market, the KPT-435-N and KPT-335-N are less than 20 inches in depth, making them two of the smallest behind-the-screen products in their performance category. In fact, the KPT-435-N is the first full three-way passive system on the market.

Based on the proven KPT-904-LF dual 15-inch bass unit, the KPT-435-N delivers powerful bass from a shallow cabinet that is 17.75 inches deep. In order to reproduce critical dialogue range, this system also features the new KPT-335 HF/MF, which consists of a K-510 Tractrix® Horn, 2-inch throated compression driver and the K-703 horn with a 1.75-inch titanium diaphragm. It is perfect for exhibitors who want to utilize a fully passive or bi-amplified three-way system in their small- to medium-sized auditoriums.

Designed for small auditoriums and engineered to save space, the KPT-335-N has a depth of 12.25 inches and serves as a high output single 15-inch three-way system. It features the KPT-315-LF for enhanced bass output and the same KPT-335 HF/MF configuration as the

KPT-435-N for the critical dialogue range. This system also utilizes a fully passive or bi-amplified three-way network.

The KPT-884 is a high-output, bass-reflex cinema subwoofer that features an advanced low-frequency 4-inch voice coil driver design. Less than 23 inches in depth, this system utilizes a single 18-inch driver that gains its high efficiency through the use of large, geometrically optimized structures and lightweight cones. In fact, the KPT-884 is capable of delivering an earth-shaking low frequency of 18Hz.

Less than 11 inches in depth, the new KPT-418 cinema subwoofer is even more compact than the KPT-884. Serving as a replacement for the Klipsch KPT-484, this high-output, bass-reflex subwoofer system delivers true bottom-end performance along with high power handling capability and high efficiency. It can be used as the main subwoofer system in a small auditorium or as the subwoofer for surrounds in small- to medium-sized auditoriums.

The CA-800T compact full-range system works well in professional cinema surround applications where flexible mounting and extended range are required. It includes a high-power 8-inch extended low-frequency driver and a titanium diaphragm compression driver mated to a 90-degree by 90-degree Tractrix Horn. This dual port bass-reflex loudspeaker can also handle 100 watts of continuous power for an AES sensitivity of 96dB. The CA-800T ships complete with a mounting bracket.
