“Previous generations of the Quintet have been deemed the best in their category and it is important that we take the necessary measures for continuous improvement,” said Paul Jacobs, CEO of Klipsch. “By refining the system’s overall build quality, materials and audio technology components, we are able to provide listeners with the most compact yet biggest sounding Quintet yet.”
Each Quintet speaker employs a new 90-degree by 90-degree Tractrix horn, designed to expand both placement flexibility and the main listening area without reducing overall sound clarity. Combined with the Tractrix horn, a lightweight aluminum tweeter creates a highly efficient driver with excellent transient response and lack of distortion. The new Linear Travel Suspension reduces distortion and enhances dynamics. Complete with an all-new long-throw injection molded graphite (IMG) woofers, the Quintet enables maximum impact and powerful output.
To further enhance the product’s build quality, its cabinets are made of professional AcoustaComp®, a material that is naturally dense, rigid and acoustically insert. This specialized material, formed into the Quintet’s speaker cabinets with non-parallel walls to diminish internal standing waves, is truly the next generation in compact home speaker technology.
Offering listeners significant placement flexibility, each Quintet satellite speaker offers a keyhole mount and a ¼-inch 20-threaded inserts for maximum mounting flexibility. The center channel features dual keyhole inserts.
Available in a satin and brushed black finish, the Quintet retails for $549.99 (U.S. MSRP) and will be available for purchase at authorized retailers and http://www.klipsch.com in September 2012.
