Klipsch’s New Magic Trick: Make Your Dolby Atmos Soundbar Invisible

Klipsch makes large speakers – in the early days of hi-fi, the company was known for its refrigerator-sized models that, like movie theater sound systems, used horns to generate maximum output from tube amplifiers common at the time. Fast forward to the present, and the brand still uses horn-loaded speaker drivers – but now to deliver distinctive Klipsch sound on Dolby Atmos soundbars.

Few people who have heard a Klipsch-based system would be disappointed with its performance. But there’s no getting away from the reality that the company’s speakers and soundbars take up a fair amount of living room space.

A new partnership aims to change that situation, with a press release that Klipsch circulated this week announcing “a strategic partnership to develop a new line of Klipsch home audio solutions integrating Resonado Labs technologies”.

Who is this Resonado Labs and what are they bringing to the table? “Identifying an opportunity to deliver full-frequency sound in small form factor speakers led to the development and patenting of our core technology,” said Brian Cho, founder and CEO of Resonado Labs, at the Klipsch launch. This technology is called the Res-Core engine, and it’s the driving force behind the Klipsch-Resonado Labs alliance’s plan to “define the next era of audio by developing a line of products designed to deliver the highest possible output in sleek, compact forms. ”
