Henley Audio have announced the UK introduction of the Klipsch® RF-7 III loudspeakers. First unveiled by Klipsch in the USA during early 2018, the speakers expand on the Reference II version with new upgrades and enhancements. The RF-7 III and matching RC-64 Centre Channel are the only Reference Line speakers still designed and assembled in the USA, in the Klipsch factory in Hope, Arkansas.

“These speakers have earned the nickname ‘fire-breathing monsters’ for a reason,” said Kerry Geist, product manager at Klipsch Group. “They are the best sounding audiophile speaker at this price point.”

The Klipsch design team selected a new tweeter for the RF-7 III, landing on the new 1¾” titanium compression driver, with an enhanced phase plug geometry design that improves sound pressure linearity at high frequencies. By coupling this tweeter to a new Tractrix® horn with a circular throat and square mouth, the high-frequency response and extension is further improved. The compressed moulded rubber construction of the horn adds high frequency damping in order to reduce harshness and improve detail.

For the woofers, Klipsch have employed proprietary 10” Cerametallic™ woofers. Cerametallic woofers have “exceptional rigidity” with a lightweight construction for minimal cone breakup and distortion. Each 10” woofer then features a heavy-duty cast aluminium frame for resonance-free operation. In addition, each woofer incorporates a dual shorting-ring magnet structure designed to eliminate modulation of the magnetic flux.

The RF-7 III’s elegant cabinet is internally bifurcated, allowing each 10” driver and port to work independently from the other. The cabinet itself is finished with furniture-grade wood veneers and is available in Black Ash, Natural Cherry or Walnut finish. The speaker’s slanted riser base enhances the appearance but also aims to direct the sound to a typical listening position. Magnetic grilles complement the premium design experience.
