Klipsch RP-280F overview

  • 1Description

The piano black RP-280F Reference Premiere Floorstanding Speaker from Klipsch is a passive floorstanding speaker designed for large rooms. This speaker handles 150W in continuous power, and is equipped with two 8" woofers and a 1" tweeter. The 90 x 90° Hybrid Tractrix horn utilizes a circular horn throat paired to a square horn mouth designed to provide high-frequency response and extension, while enhancing imaging and dynamics. The compressed molded rubber construction adds high-frequency damping to reduce harshness and improve detail. This creates a clean, natural sound.

The RP-280F floorstanding speaker also features a Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) dual titanium tweeter designed to minimize distortion. The dual spun copper Cerametallic woofers have a rigid, lightweight construction. The Tractrix port allows for efficient air transfer from the cabinet, thus creating a low frequency response. The RP-280F has an MDF cabinet with brushed polymer veneer baffle finish. The removable grille can attach magnetically.

Piano Black Finish
Crafting of this limited-edition finish requires a three-coat paint and polish process to help create a deep, vivid reflection that only a true piano black finish possesses.
Infinity Edge
The limited edition finish wraps around the entirety of the housing to provide an even reflection with a virtually edge-less appearance from all angles.

    Klipsch RP-280F reviews

    RP-280F Reference Premiere Floorstanding Speaker (Piano Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound! As a hard core Bose fan, I was skeptical about buying any other speaker, but due to a change in my theater configuration, I thought a pair of tower speakers would work best. After careful review of different speakers, I decided to go with the RP-280Fs, both from the reviews and aesthetics. They replaced a 26 year old pair of Bose AM-5s that I bought the year they came out in 1990. I could not be happier with my purchase. The RP-280Fs provide a full and accurate sound, from the lowest lows, to the highest highs. I have tested them with low bass test records, as well as different movies. I put them on par with my Bose 901s for the lows, but with the benefit of having crips highs as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent speakers I kept going back and forth with my self on either book self speakers or the RP-280F Reference Premiere Floor standing Speakers. This went on for almost 4 weeks and I finally choose the RP-280F Reference Premiere Floor standing Speakers. All I can say is that I wasted four weeks of pure excellent sound, as soon as UPS delivered them had them set up in 30 minutes they are packed very very well. Set them up and have not looked back on my decision the sound is incredible. Don't waste time like me these are worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I expected. I am always one with extremely high expectations. Sometimes my expectations are so high that I'm left a little upset by a phenomenal product. I have had my eye on the reference premiere Klipsch setup for a long time. I purchased these floorstandings along with the Rp450C and the rp160m. I spent some time dialing in the listening distances and making sure that the dB correction was evened out around my listening position. I am absolutely blown away by the sound and power these speakers deliver. As soon as budget allows I will be adding a set of rp250s'. I wish I didn't wait as long as I did to purchase. It was a very expensive upgrade but I don't regret it one bit at all. If you like to listen loud like I do and be immersed in your movies and music then don't hesitate. The only thing I will say is that I had tunnel vision on Klipsch. I liked everything about them including the beautiful copper look of the speakers, so I didn't spend any time researching any other speaker brands. If you care about bang for the buck or whatever it is that drives you then I can't give an honest answer if there is something better or not. What I can tell you is that these Klipsch's do not disappoint at all!
