RP-600M, Klipsch, Reference Premiere, bookshelf speakers


Klipsch Reference Premiere series speakers feature a compressed molded silicon face thats matted to the 90×90 Tractrix horn to reduces horn resonance for a smoother frequency response.

A vented tweeter design reduces standing waves behind the tweeter diaphragm for a smoother high frequency reproduction. The titanium tweeter diaphragm’s light weight yet rigid composition exceeds the performance of aluminum, polymer or silk tweeters.


Klipsch Cerametallic cones are matted to a dual-layer, copper-wound voice coil for exceptional conductivity.

Reference Premiere woofers are housed in a non-resonating, stamped-steel basket that’s secured to a large magnet motor for exceptional efficiency and low distortion, and matched to our horn-loaded tweeters for optimal acoustic execution.

    Unless selective, fatiguingPurchased 30 days ago in Piano Black. Thus far, I have engaged over 200 hours of critical listening sessions – mostly hopeful in the beginning. The speakers look aesthetically pleasing but sound less dynamic and less high fidelity than the Klipsch catalog describes. These are the Kia and Hyundai of speakers – lots of style, but little impact. I’ll go further to state the sound has a gaslighting effect that discerning music listeners will likely notice. The good news is they are $399. I would have returned them if they were priced any higher.Update: just a few days after the original review, I am experiencing significant dissatisfaction with these “Reference Premier” budget speakers. Unfortunately, I’m past the return window. I take responsibility for my part – which is buying the well written marketing description and hoping that low priced speakers can actually emit a pleasing sound.The more I listen to these speakers, nevertheless, the less appealing their sound. I have hi-end cables, purchased a foam pad, filled my monolith speaker stands with sand, worked at positioning the speakers for the sweet spot…After all my belief, hope, gimmicky additions and time, I’ve learned these Klipsch speakers make Latin Jazz and most Salsa and Popular Rock recordings sound incredibly harsh. Don’t bother listening to alternative music or anything synthesized, computerized or electronic. Avoid listening to trumpet, saxophone, violin, too. Think you’ll get audiophile warmth, soundstage, airy, detailed sounds from these speakers? Kiss your dreams good bye.These speakers may only be good to play during an event that requires background music…that is, no one will be listening intently to the harsh and fatiguing sound…though it will be important to be selective about the background music choices too…avoid sonatas, avoid opera…I’m coming to accept the fact that I will have to pay thousands of dollars to get the sound I am in search of….so, I won’t think to compare these Klipsch speakers with other similarly priced products.It could be the detailed sound of ultra HD or the harsh sound of the copper spun woofers and the shrill horn-like tweeter – perhaps, it’s just this technological generation’s signature sound…or maybe today’s recordings are just plain bad…but this is bad and sad… I say save your money and get truly premium speakers … These speakers don’t live up to the hype…

    very easy speaker to listen toi just got these speakers today.i am using them in a small mini home theater room in my home which was a spare bedroom.i have been using the polk s 20 bookshelf speakers along with a super tweeter by a company called pyamid.they sound real good but the klispch sound a little better,i noticed better dialog and tighter bass,i listen to music using 2 channel stereo with a pioneer reciever with 165 watts per channel’for movies i use 5 channel surround dtx ect. im going to sell the rest of my polks and replace them with klispch just for a change tyhe polks are not bad speakers,i was supprised that the tweeter and horn in the klispch might have been harsh on the ears but they are real smooth.i am happy with the speakers and got them at a great price on amazon.you dont have to spend thousands of dollars on high priced speakers to get great sound,but i would suggest you get a good quality reciever at l;east one in the 500 to 700 dollar price range,if you are not going to use 7 or 9 channels get a simple 5 channel reciever with decent power,dont get fooled and drawn in with the dolbt atmos,unless you have good speakers in your ceiling you will never notice any real atmos effect and you have to watch movies in dolby atmos and they might only have 5 mins total of atmos sceens you can hear a littlle bit its klispc for me from now on

    Just Great!I have owned the Klipsch Heresy, Quartets, and SF2 speakers. My Chorus Speakers are the standard by which I measure all others. Klipsch took it up a notch with the RP-600M Bookshelf speakers. My Chorus are the perfect blend of the Cornwall and Heresy speakers. The RP-600Ms are in a separate class. Impressively cutting edge like LaScala speakers. The bass is world class and clearly articulate. The sound stage is legendary. You hear instrumentation perfectly. As a musician and producer, it is what we desire. We want you to clearly hear the hard work and love put into every recording. I highly recommend these speakers to anyone.

    Small Speakers with a BIG SoundI’ve been lusting after these for a couple of years now and finally pulled the trigger after the woofer on one of my old speakers started making a slight crunchy/popping noise at moderate volume.This is my first pair of Klipsch speakers and I am not disappointed. Their sound is warm and rich with lightning quick bass response and highs that sparkle without sounding harsh. They punch way above their weight class and with proper setup and placement, will have no problems filling a very large room. Because of their high sensitivity, they also “wake up” at very low volume levels so if you like listening at quieter volumes, these sound rich and start to sparkle as soon as the volume knob comes off of zero (no need to use a “loudness” button). I also purchased a pair of 33″ speaker stands to help dial-in the proper placement and so I can finally retire the milk crates I was using for my old ones.These have a rear-firing bass-reflex port so make sure they have at least 9″ of distance from the wall so they can breathe. My amplifier will comfortably drive these at 50 wpc but because of their sensitivity, a 20 watt amplifier could easily drive these for room-filling sound.

    Ignore the naysayersI did a lot of research on stereo speakers for 2 channel music listening. I own a pair of Sony SSCS5 that I think are very good for a budget speaker. I wanted to upgrade so I moved them to another room. I use them with a Yamaha R-202 receiver and very satisfied.I purchased a Yamaha integrated amp S-301 and a Cambridge AX-35 CD changer and wanted some quality speakers for them.I found people seem to enjoy putting the Klipsch RP-600M speakers down. Muddy, poor bass, poor midrange, over-hyped, and too bright.I tried the Elac 6.2 speakers that everyone raves about and found them no better than my Sony’s.I kept thinking I should try the 600’s so I did.My opinion: great presentation, spacious sound, clear details, and solid bass so much I don’t want a subwoofer. No brightness that the horn is suppose to display, just great music that I’m glad I discovered again. I am enjoying my collection more than ever.Look for sales and specials. Got mine for 364.00Very happy !

    Great pair of speakersHighly recommend the RP 600m speakers, very loud, back channels or side channels crystal clear sound if you’re looking for a great set of speakers, definitely these will make your day. I’ve wanted these speakers for a long while now to add to my set great speakers.

    Very Happy Klipsch CustomerPhenomenal sound at a reasonable price. I have two pairs of the RP-600M speakers that function as my side and back surrounds. My 7.2.4 home theater system is complete with these RP-600M speakers. I’ve attached my Audessy Calibration results so you can see how these speakers can be adjusted to reference level in any room. I have an acoustically challenging living room as evident in the pre calibrated curves.Not all speakers have the ability to correct to reference level but the RP-600M speakers handle my room like the Reference Premier speakers that they are.

    Great Sounding speakersVery nice detail in the sound of these small speakers, very clean and accurate sound to my ears!

  9. Kenneth Bryant

    Sounds very goodCan be a little harsh on the upper frequencies, particularly if using an amp that emphasized the upper ranges. Some test show a significant dropoff in some of the midrange freqs. Overall, I think it is a good speaker if you pair it with the proper amp and get it at a sale price.

    Look as good they soundThey sound ALMOST as good as my Klipsch R8000 series, sometimes I can’t tellThe difference.
