"The Sevens" and "The Nines": New Powered Speakers by Klipsch

With the powered speakers "The Sevens" and "The Nines", Klipsch is adding two new models to the Heritage wireless speaker series. Just like their sibling "The Fives", they are designed to act as a complete stereo system.

All three powered speaker models from Klipsch can be connected to a TV via HDMI ARC, while the integrated phono preamp accepts music signals from a turntable with MM pickup. With Bluetooth, optical, analog RCA, and USB inputs for a computer, there ought be an input for most situations, as well as a subwoofer output.

All of the preamp, the 192kHz/24-bit DAC, and the control panel are built into one of the two speakers, the master.

Thanks to the built-in DSP amplifier, fully active crossovers and horn tweeter, The Sevens and The Nines are said to be able to handle large rooms. Both new models feature 25 mm titanium tweeters playing to a Tractrix horn. This horn technology, invented and exclusively used by Klipsch, is said to optimally match the dispersion of higher frequencies to the size of the respective woofer and enclosure.

According to Klipsch, The Nines offer a total continuous output of 240 watts and use a newly developed 23 cm long-throw woofer with a composite cone. The Sevens close the gap between the compact The Fives and The Nines and come with 200 watts of stated total continuous power and an 18 cm long-throw woofer.

The built-in preamp can be operated via two dials on the master speaker that control source selection and volume. Both are displayed via LED. Those who want to operate The Nines, The Sevens or The Fives from the listening position can use the included remote.

All Heritage wireless series powered speakers are also compatible with the Klipsch Connect app, which allows individual settings for equalizer, room correction, and subwoofer adjustment. Furthermore, a mode for more dynamic bass, a night mode, firmware updates and a digital guide can be accessed in the app. Available from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, the app controls The Nines, The Sevens and The Fives from any smartphone with a Bluetooth connection. A connection to the local network is not necessary.

Klipsch "The Nines" (around €2,000 per pair*) and "The Sevens" (around €1,600 per pair*) will be available from authorized dealers in February 2023*. The earlier Klipsch "The Fives" (around €900*) are also still available*.
