Indianapolis, Ind. (February 2022) — Now celebrating its 75th anniversary, Klipsch®, the official headphone and portable audio partner of the McLaren® Formula 1 team, is pleased to add The Fives McLaren® Edition powered speakers to its collection of co-branded products. The speakers combine McLaren Racing’s renowned design ethos and use of advanced materials with Klipsch’s legendary high-fidelity audio and technical innovation.
Klipsch The Fives McLaren Edition powered speakers are extremely versatile, easy to set up and use, and connect to virtually everything — including a TV via HDMI-ARC. They also include an integrated phono pre-amp, Bluetooth® wireless technology, digital optical, analogue RCA, USB inputs and a subwoofer output.
Klipsch The Fives McLaren Edition powered speakers feature an advanced, high-efficiency DSP amplifier for high-resolution audio (192kHz/24-bit decoding) from dedicated right and left speakers, as well as the supreme strength and ultra-low mass of carbon fibre for enhanced performance. Klipsch engineers designed the high-excursion carbon fibre woofer cone from scratch to ensure maximum output with minimal cone break up for detailed, deep, dynamic bass and decreased distortion. The result is a big, bold sound stage, and a better listening experience than the common soundbar.
Other enhancements include:
- Hand painted super matte black paint finish with accents of McLaren’s signature papaya color
- McLaren’s iconic speedmark logo
- Signature papaya tweeters, control panel, nyylon braided speaker and power cables
- Stability pad inspired by Formula 1’s intermediate racing tire tread
- Laser etched Klipsch | McLaren paddock garage sign
The Fives are compatible with the Klipsch Connect app, giving users access to customise EQ and subwoofer volume settings, dynamic bass, night listening mode, over-the-air firmware upgrades, a digital quick-start guide, and much more.
Klipsch The Fives McLaren Edition powered speakers are available now in the UK for £1,349 / €1,499 per pair. For more information, visit Klipsch.com.
