Introducing the P-27C center channel, along with the entire Palladium Series, Klipsch has solidly established itself in the high-end luxury arena. In fact, this speaker is a pinnacle of modern-day horn-loaded technology, letting you hear and emotionally connect with your music and movies precisely as the original artist or director intended.
The Speaker as Sculpture
Designed with an eye toward home interior and furniture designs, the P-27C has a signature style that blends classic Klipsch audio and a clean, contemporary look.
The speaker's unique enclosure hints at the power and performance inside, while maintaining a high degree of sophistication and beauty. Next to its shape, the most striking visual statement is the exotic zebra-grain Linia veneer that's available in three different finishes: natural, merlot and espresso. The horizontal linear grain and absence of visible fasteners allows the P-27C to elegantly complement your furniture and decor.
From every angle, every perspective, the P-27C center channel is how luxury should look. It's a treat for the senses-even before you hear it.
A Legacy Reborn
Since 1946, Klipsch has been synonymous with horn-loaded technology. And since then, we've been guided by the four design principles set forth by our founder Paul W. Klipsch: high efficiency, low distortion, controlled directivity and wide and flat frequency response. After just one listen, you'll discover the P-27C represents the latest advancement in horn technology and purest application of those design principles yet.
Offering 3-way performance, the P-27C speaker shares a lot of similarities with the flagship P-39F floorstander, employing the same Tractrix Horn-loaded midrange and super tweeter.
Unique to the Palladium Series is a carbon-infused, thermoset composite dual-horn configuration. It consists of a proprietary tweeter design, combining a chambered phase plug and Tractrix Horn for extended high-frequency response; a second 90º by 60º acoustically dampened Tractrix Horn is coupled to the midrange driver, resulting in remarkably precise and detailed performances.
For superior bass performance, the P-27C's low-frequency driver employs dual 7-inch hybrid cone woofers, powered by a unique neodymium magnet structure. Dual ports on the rear of the speaker enhance low-distortion bass response. Each woofer's voice coil responds accurately to the smallest signal modulation, yet can also handle the high power of the most demanding soundtracks.
Many speakers of this caliber rely on off-the-shelf drivers; every P-27C driver has been engineered and built for this specific application. Years of research, development and testing resulted in a remarkable driver design that exceeds even our own high performance standards.
