Klipsch Develops In -Wall Versions of its Award -Winning THX Ultra2 Custom Home Theater System

Respected certification and proprietary technology gives products uncompromised performance

INDIANAPOLIS (September 6, 2006) - Klipsch recently launched in -wall versions of its THX Ultra2 custom home theater system. Engineered to bring real cinema sound to the comforts of home, the new KL -7800 -THX in -wall LCR and KS -7800 -THX in -wall surround offer the ultimate performance in hidden solution loudspeakers.


THX Ultra2 certification indicates that the speakers work well with multi -channel music and movie presentations playing up to reference levels in rooms of 3,000 cubic feet or larger. The KL -7800 -THX and KS -7800 -THX deliver the same high -output, low distortion signature sound as their traditional enclosure counterparts.

The KL -7800 -THX features an 8 -inch aluminum woofer and a 1 -inch titanium -dome compression driver mated to a square Tractrix® Horn. This advanced horn design dramatically increases efficiency and allows the loudspeaker to produce more output using less energy. The KL -7800 -THX also has a back box enclosure, making its response predictable and repeatable. Because the back box fits nicely within the speaker's footprint, the KL -7800 -THX can easily be installed into new or existing construction.

The KS -7800 -THX produces a smooth, seamless broad distribution of sound by employing an 8 -inch aluminum woofer and two vertically -stacked square Tractrix Horn tweeters in a Wide Dispersion Surround Technology™ array. This unique horn design incorporates the same patent -pending technology as the company's new WDST in -wall surround but on a larger sonic scale. The KS -7800 -THX also features the same back box enclosure design as the KL -7800 -THX.

WDST is the industry's no -compromise approach to surround speaker design because it offers both rich, immersive surround sound and precise localization of individual effects from a speaker that has much more placement flexibility than conventional designs.

These THX in -wall models can create a complete THX Ultra2 -certified in -wall system when installed with Klipsch's KW -120 -THX subwoofers and a KA -1000 -THX subwoofer amplifier. They can also be mixed and matched with the Klipsch THX Ultra2 box product.

Now shipping, the KL -7800 -THX and KS -7800 -THX are priced individually at preliminary U.S. MSRPs of $1,000 and $750 respectively.
