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 6.5” Cerametallic™ woofer in a 2-way design. Now with a new
the 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-to-edge 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
KLIPSCH EXCLUSIVE CONTROLLED DISPERSION TECHNOLOGY® (CDT)
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
the 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 ATTENUATION 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-650-C INSTALL KIT
For increased mounting flexibility and pre-install marking during new
COMPATIBLE WITH THE KLIPSCH ME-650-C FIRE-RATED SPEAKER
For meeting building codes and/or reduction of transferred sound between rooms.
