Klipsch’s Palladium P-39F speakers.Indianapolis, IN (January 31, 2008)–Klipsch has developed its new flagship Palladium P-39F floor-standing speaker. A 3.5-way, tapered-array design, the P-39F employs a proprietary horn-loaded tweeter assembly made of acoustically damped materials, an inverted dome midrange, and three high-output woofers for reportedly high sensitivity and low distortion.
Jim Garrett, Klipsch director of product planning, says, “Offering the highest level of perfection in every respect, this speaker is the pinnacle of modern-day, horn-loaded technology and craftsmanship. Steady global growth of the Klipsch brand has proven to more and more people that horn-loaded speakers just sound better. Now that the Klipsch name is highly recognized and trusted on a much broader scale, we believe the market is ready to experience our more esoteric side.”
Developed from the ground up, the speaker’s 3/4-inch, Titanium-diaphragm tweeter utilizes two neodymium magnets and a resistively damped back chamber. A chambered phase plug and exclusive Tractrix Horn combination delivers a high-frequency response that is said to be flat from 3 kHz to 30 kHz. According to the company, this arrangement reduces heat levels so that the driver will maintain its full dynamic capability at any volume level.
Every P-39F comes as a “matching” left and right speaker pair. Not only are all of the driver components within each particular set acoustically matched, their cabinets also coordinate with one another by positioning their triple ports on opposite sides and sharing the same wood-grain finish.
