The Klipsch RF-82 is a high-performance floorstanding loudspeaker that falls in the middle of the Reference Series RF speakers offered by Klipsch. The key feature of the RF series is the exclusive, critically acclaimed Tractrix horn. This technology has been refined for the RF-82 to include an improved throat geometry for more genuine, lifelike sound.  Behind the horn is a 1" titanium tweeter with a large ceramic motor to give precise and clear sound. Below the horn there are dual 8" Cerametallic woofers with inverted copper dust caps.  These woofers have a very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and feature superb damping.  The cabinet is designed with internal crossbracing to minimize unwanted vibrations and dual rear-firing ports eliminate turbulant noise.  There is also incresed baffle ribbing around the horn mouth for improved acoustics.  The Klipsch RF-82 are sold by the pair, and are available in a black woodgrain vinyl finish with magnetically attached speaker grills.
