“The Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-500A is an upward-firing module that is designed to create the illusion of overhead channels by bouncing sounds off the ceiling. It utilises the same 5.25-inch spun copper Cerametallic midbass driver and 1-inch titanium LTS vented hybrid Tractrix horn-loaded tweeter as the rest of the line-up, but also includes Dolby’s proprietary technology (although it also works with DTS:X soundtracks).
The RP-500A is more versatile than your average Atmos/DTS:X module, with the option of a surround, height or upward-firing orientation. Depending on your speaker configuration, you simply flip the switch on the rear between Atmos or surround. There’s a keyhole for wall mounting, and the binding posts are housed in a recessed area for tidier cabling when placed on top of another speaker.”
