Reference II Bookshelf Speaker

Best Performance Out of a Bookshelf Speaker
A towering achievement in a bookshelf design, the Reference Series RB-81 II is a force to be reckoned with. It provides unrivaled music and movie performances to those who demand the very best, but don’t have the room to accommodate a floorstanding speaker.

The RB-81 II is complete with our proprietary Tractrix® Horn technology which produces a unique combination of precision, clarity and effortless power. Finished in a beautiful light cherry or black woodgrain vinyl veneer, the RB-81 II is guaranteed to complement any décor.

New and Improved
Now in its fifth generation, Reference II speakers boast enhanced features, including re-engineered drivers and a new crossover system, to capture your attention and excite your emotions. In addition to the improved sound quality, the look of “big sound” has been redefined throughout the line with sophisticated cabinetry, refreshed logos and rounded feet.

Collection Description

Klipsch Reference II Description

Reference II Series

Beginning in 1946, company founder, Paul W. Klipsch believed four principles to be the foundation for great sound. Together, these four design principles—high efficiency with low distortion, controlled directivity, flat frequency response, and wide dynamic range—have and always will be the foundation for our stunningly powerful and precise sound. Movies and music will sound just as they were intended to – no matter the room type or size – with the power, detail and emotion of Klipsch Reference II sound.

Our exclusive Tractrix® Horn technology and titanium tweeters deliver a most impressive high-end response and greater extension, enhanced imaging and powerful dynamics. Cerametallic™ cone woofers complement the listening experience by creating bass that is always tight and well-defined with a smoother mid-range response. A new Linear Travel Suspension minimizes distortion for enhanced performance. Pleasing to both the eye and the ear, the Reference II Series’ elegantly handcrafted finishes result in a seamless integration into any décor.

The Reference II collection is a great option if you are looking for Home Audio in the Stevens Point, Rhinelander, Wausau, Green Bay, Wisconsin Rapids, Marshfield, East and West Madison, Wisconsin area.
