Race-Tuned: McLaren-Liveried Klipsch The Fives
Klipsch announces a special edition of its The Fives powered speakers featuring design touches inspired by McLaren F1's iconic orange livery.
The Applause Award-winning Klipsch The Fives proved to be versatile active monitors thanks to their HDMI ARC and optical inputs for hooking up to TVs, gaming consoles, and such alongside an integrated phono pre-amp for your turntable. Rounding things off is a USB input, Bluetooth 5 and subwoofer output.
As the official headphone and portable audio partner of McLaren F1 and following the race-themed T5 II True Wireless buds, The McLaren Edition of The Fives gets a hand-painted matte black finish with McLaren's signature papaya colour accents, including the control panel and braided cables, as well as the team speed-mark logo and a 'Klipsch | McLaren' paddock garage sign.
Also finished in matching papaya are the 25mm titanium vented tweeters with Klipsch's classic Tractrix horns. Additionally, each cabinet houses an 11cm long-throw woofer made from high-excursion carbon fibre.
Meanwhile, the racing theme continues down to each speaker's stability pad, with a rubber material said to be inspired by Formula 1's intermediate racing tyre tread.
The Fives utilise ultra-low noise, high-efficiency DSP amplifiers capable of high-resolution audio (192kHz/24-bit decoding). In addition, they are compatible with the Klipsch Connect app, giving you access to custom tone and volume settings.
The special McLaren Edition of The Fives is available now for $2,799 RRP per pair. The less racy model is still available priced at $1,349 RRP.
