UPDATED WITH THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY
The Klipsch CDT-5800-C II maintains the core technology use of a
premium 1” Titanium compression driver (tweeter) mated to an exclusive
Tractrix® Horn combined with a large 8” Cerametallic™ woofer in a 2-way
design. Now with a new low-profile, more elegant grille and refinements
to both high frequency and low frequency reproduction, it continues as a
high-performance choice for everything from 2-channel music playback
to full, large room surround sound use.
THE UPDATE FOR YOUR EYES: THE NEW SLIMTRIM™ GRILLE
With an all new grille, the visible frame size is reduced by 90% and grille
depth is reduced by 80% over the previous design, for a more edge-toedge consistent look that blends in with the wall more attractively. The
new aluminum, paintable, magnetic grille attaches tightly and securely
with ease to virtually eliminate resonant distortion.
KLIPSCH EXCLUSIVE CONTROLLED DISPERSION
Klipsch horn-loaded technology increases acoustic output while
significantly reducing distortion. Proprietary Controlled Dispersion
Technology allows for both the symmetrical, 100° Tractrix Horn
compression driver (tweeter) and woofer to be independently aimed
toward the main listening area. The tweeter swivels while the woofer
rotates 360° and pivots 15° in any direction. The precisely controlled
dispersion of the horn-loaded tweeter assures that high frequencies are
more effectively directed towards the listening area than typical amiable,
broad dispersion, standard dome tweeters. This, combined with the
woofer’s ability to also direct more narrowly dispersed midbass
frequencies, yields overall sound with more lifelike impact, greater detail
and better vocal clarity.
TITANIUM DIAPHRAGM COMPRESSION DRIVER (TWEETER) WITH
LINEAR TRAVEL SUSPENSION (LTS)
Combined with the Tractrix Horn, the one-inch, solid-formed, very
lightweight metallic diaphragm works in conjunction with a precise
phasing plug at the horn throat to create a highly efficient driver with
excellent transient response and lack of distortion. The new Linear Travel
Suspension assures the most precise diaphragm excursion, increasing
high-frequency detail and smoothness.
MACHINE-SPUN CERAMETALLIC™ WOOFER
The solid Aluminum diaphragm, anodized to add stiffness and provide
perfect damping, has a new hi-tech look that also delivers increased
rigidity for even tighter, more defined bass. The new integrated dust cap
further strengthens the cone and helps ventilate the voice coil for
increased driver durability.
PREMIUM, HIGH DEFINITION NETWORK
The perfect blending between drivers for full bandwidth balanced response.
TREBLE AND MIDBASS ATTENTUATION SWITCHES
Allows reduction of high and/or low frequency output in challenging install applications
such as overly reflective rooms or corner placement, allowing a better frequency balance.
SURE-GRIP MOUNTING DOGS
Provide even pressure against drywall for long-term installation reliability.
COMPATIBLE WITH THE KLIPSCH IK-800-C INSTALL KIT
For increased mounting flexibility and pre-install marking during new construction.
COMPATIBLE WITH THE KLIPSCH ME-800-C FIRE-RATED SPEAKER ENCLOSURE
For meeting building codes and/or reduction of transferred sound between rooms.
