About the Klipsch Reference R-30C

Immersive centre-channel sound from Klipsch

I've always found that movies are more engaging when you feel like you're right in the middle of the action. It takes a good speaker system to put you front-and-centre in a scene, and Klipsch's Reference line is up to the task. The new Reference R-30C is a low-profile, high-performance centre channel speaker built to deliver detailed on-screen sound effects and clear dialogue. 

Immersive centre-channel sound from Klipsch

I've always found that movies are more engaging when you feel like you're right in the middle of the action. It takes a good speaker system to put you front-and-centre in a scene, and Klipsch's Reference line is up to the task. The new Reference R-30C is a low-profile, high-performance centre channel speaker built to deliver detailed on-screen sound effects and clear dialogue. 

Next-generation drivers

Each of the R-30C's 3-1/2" woofers uses spun-copper TCP (thermoformed crystalline polymer) for its cone material. Klipsch chose this material because of its smooth response and transparency. The woofer also uses some trickle-down technology from the company's more expensive Reference Premiere line. It has a similar cone shape and uses additional ribbing for extra rigidity, which reduces distortion at higher frequencies. 

The hallmark 90°x 90° Tractrix® horn features an upgrade too. Klipsch widened its opening for more high-frequency directivity. That means the 1" LTS (Linear Travel Suspension) tweeter inside the horn has a wider "sweet spot" and delivers more detail inside that sweet spot.

Features

1" Horn-Loaded Tweeter: The R-30C center-channel loudspeaker features Klipsch's proprietary Tractrix Horn technology mated with a 1" LTS aluminum tweeter, for impressive high-frequency response and greater extension, enhanced imaging and powerful dynamics.

  • 90°x90° Tractrix Horn: The square Tractrix Horn delivers a 90° (w) x 90° (h) dispersion pattern and features an increased outer horn dimension that allows for directivity control over a larger bandwidth of frequencies, resulting in improved high frequency directivity and a more accurate soundstage. Klipsch exclusive Tractrix horn technology ensures that the speaker's high frequency energy is aimed at the listener and reduces artificial reverb or filtering caused by indirect sound bouncing off of walls. Using this proprietary focused technology provides clarity, dynamics, and detail for your movies and music.
  • LTS Aluminum Tweeter: Behind each horn lies a 1" LTS aluminum tweeter with a Kapton suspension. Klipsch exclusive Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performances. Aluminum is an extremely light and rigid material used in the tweeter assembly to provide high efficiency and improve resolution and detail.

3.5" Spun-Copper TCP Woofers: The Klipsch R-30C houses four 3.5" Spun-Copper TCP (Thermoformed Crystalline Polymer) woofers for deep, smooth, and accurate bass. TCP woofers have steeper angling of the cones for a smoother response and improved accuracy and transparency. The additional ribbing increases the overall rigidity for less cone breakup at higher frequencies.

Dual Tractrix Ports: The two front Tractrix ports of the R-30C center-channel loudspeaker are perfectly matched to the cabinet and woofers, creating ideal airflow with minimal distortion and turbulence even at the lowest frequencies. Klipsch Tractrix ports have custom designed inner flares that help reduce air turbulence entering the port. Less turbulent air helps reduce port noise for cleaner, more powerful bass.

MDF Cabinet: The Klipsch R-30C center-channel speaker features a MDF cabinet with a scratch-resistant, textured wood grain vinyl that seamlessly integrates into almost any room or decor. The enclosure's reinforced MDF construction reduces cabinet vibration for less audible coloration and improved sonic accuracy. The MDF enclosure also features a satin painted baffle with a scratch resistant design for an elegant look without the grille.

Acoustically Transparent Grille: The Klipsch R-30C center-channel loudspeaker comes with a removable, black cloth grille that is magnetic and acoustically transparent. This strong magnetic grille provides protection and a sleek aesthetic look to compliment your home's decor.

Binding Posts: The Klipsch Reference III series center-channel speaker is outfitted with sturdy binding posts to ensure a secure connection to many types of cable and connectors. The binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single only), pin-connectors, spade-lugs and bare wire (up to 12AWG).

Placement & Mounting Options: The center channel speaker is designed to place dialog and primary sounds so that they appear to come from the TV or projector screen. The speaker should therefore be centered and placed as close to the screen as possible, preferably directly on top of or below the screen. The R-30C can be tabletop or wall-mounted.

  • Integrated Cork Pad: The center channel loudspeaker comes with an integrated cork pad on the bottom of the speaker enclosure to secure the speaker in place and prevent any damage to your stand's or shelf's surface.
  • Threaded Inserts: The R-30C features two 1/4"-20 threaded inserts on the back of the cabinet that allows you to wall-mount the center-channel speaker with an optional bracket (sold separately). *Currently, Crutchfield does not offer a wall-mount bracket for the Klipsch R-30C center-channel speaker.

Reference III Series: Klipsch's new Reference III series features updated Tractrix Horn technology, a new Spun-Copper TCP (Thermoformed Crystal Polymer) woofer design, and Tractrix geometry port technology to create a wide soundstage that is smooth, controlled and accurate. The Reference III series by Klipsch consists of a variety of floorstanding (R-800F / R-600F / R-605FA), bookshelf (R-50M / R-40M), center (R-50C / R-30C), and Atmos speakers (R-40SA) - all sold separately.

Optional Powered Sub: For bigger & deeper bass response, pair the Klipsch Reference III series loudspeaker with one of Klipsch's powered subwoofers (sold separately - click on Accessories Tab).

Q
What is the model number of the bracket to mount it?

This amazing Klipsch R-30C is not wall-mountable, Phillip. There is no bracket available, and the center channel has no keyhole slots for wall mounting. You will need to use a custom shelf or other support for wall mounting this center channel speaker. You could consider swapping in the R-34C in the link below, it has rear mounted keyhole slots for wall mounting. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_714R34C/Klipsch-Reference-R-34C.html
