The RB-61 II is all that one needs in their floor standing speakers. They have a unique and appealing style to it and have an excellent bookshelf design.

Not only do they look good, but the sound is clear and powerful, giving one all the thrills and intensity when watching a movie and is detailed so well that there is no distortion to the sound. It proves to be a great addition to one’s household.

They can fill small, medium, and large-sized rooms with fantastic sound. The device is unlike any other and has no competition. It plays with a loud and robust sound while canceling out any distortions. It is highly efficient and produces a large amount of output for low power input.

Design

The Klipsch RB-61 II speakers do not only feature good quality product but are also very stylish. The pair has a sleek and simple design which is not too over the top.

The cabinets are very sturdy and made of medium-density fiber board, finished off with a layer of black vinyl. The classic black and bronze theme of previous models of the Klipsch RB-61 has been continued with this one as it has been well received by the audience.

Another positive about this color combination is that it can fit in with almost any color scheme and not look out of place. It is perhaps one of the most intriguing designs to get under $500.

The magnetic grilles can even be removed easily so that you can flaunt the gold inside for an even more aesthetic look of the speakers. Do not worry because they are easily re-attachable.

Features

Tractrix Horn: The speakers come with Klipsch’s own Tractrix® Horn technology, which is unlike any other as it makes the sound more lifelike, uses less energy, and diminishes any distortions.

Cerametallic woofer: The Cerametallic woofer cones used in the speakers are made up of specially made aluminum to reduce and inhibit any distortions.

Refreshing sound: The Klipsch RB-61 II also features new technology from their star Palladium Series which gives out a sound so natural that one is transported to the studio where the music was recorded or to the sets of the film.

Frequency: The improved frequencies in the speaker set to result in a more explicit integration whether on-axis or off-axis
Wood finish: As well as having so many positive aspects it comes in two different finishes (cherry and black woodgrain vinyl), so you can have a choice to pick whichever finish you prefer

Magnetic grill: The speakers have a magnetic grill which is easy to remove as it is attached by magnets.
