(March 1, 2023) Nearly one year ago, Klipsch introduced its Reference Premier II Loudspeaker lineup to the world. Loaded with tower models, on-wall surrounds, and both bookshelf and Atmos module options, the new designs seemed to have just about everything but a proper matching subwoofer. Today, the audio mavens at Klipsch HQ have filled that void with the launch of its Reference Premier Subwoofer collection. This new pack of subs are hyper-efficient with the optimal balance between amplifier power, driver capability, and cabinet volume, for head turning deep bass at extremely tempting price points.
Here's a breakdown of the new Reference Premier Sub Collection, with price, driver size, power rating, and factory specified low-end output noted:
- RP-1600SW, $1,799, 16” woofer with 1600W of peak power, 14.5Hz +/- 3dB

Spun Copper Front-Firing Cerametallic Woofers
Newly designed Cerametallic woofers are exceptionally light and extremely rigid, providing remarkable low frequency response with minimal cone breakup and distortion for higher, cleaner output using less amplifier power.
Front-Firing Slot Port with Exclusive Internal Flare Technology
Proprietary internal geometry with a new Aerofoil slot port design minimizes port noise for clean undistorted low frequencies. The front-firing design allows for placement flexibility.
The Klipsch WA-2 Wireless Subwoofer Kit (sold separately) allows high resolution wireless connectivity for easy placement anywhere in your room and optimizes output and low frequency response. Connect up to four WA-2 wireless kits
to compatible Klipsch subwoofers in a single room for a completely wireless connection.
Low Pass Crossover and Variable Phase control allows you to tune the subwoofer to your Klipsch speakers and to your room, establishing the ideal level of bass. Line Level / LFE RCA inputs ensure compatibility with home theater receivers.
Both the RCA and wireless inputs can be utilized, giving you the ability to use a single subwoofer with multiple system in the same room. For example, you can use the wireless input for your home theater set up and the RCA input for your 2-channel system, without needing to switch inputs when changing between systems.
In addition, each sub features a scratch-resistant ebony vinyl finish that looks like real wood and covers the entire cabinet. Rounded corners, shock-absorbing rubber feet, steel grille posts and a woven cloth grilles complete the speakers' sharp looks.
