RBH Sound TK Series

RBH introduced freestanding counterparts to the popular TK series in-wall and in-ceiling speakers at the CEDIA Expo this week. After receiving many requests from their dealers for a budget-priced series with upgraded drivers for better performance, RBH began development of a new series. The result is the TK series, which the company feels has met these goals.

The TK-5C is a 2-way bookshelf speaker that features a 5-1/4-inch fiberglass cone woofer and a 1-inch soft dome tweeter. The TK-5C can handle 100 watts, has a frequency response is 60Hz-20kHz, measures 12.75" H x 7.125" W x 8.5" D and weighs 11 pounds each.

The TK-515C is the TK Series' 2-way bookshelf/center channel speaker. It features two 5-1/4" fiberglass cone woofers and a 1-inch soft dome tweeter. The TK-515C can handle 120 watts, has a frequency response is 60Hz-20kHz, measures 7.125" H x 20.75" W x 8.5" D and weighs 17 pounds each.

The TK-5CT is a 3-way tower speaker. It features an 8-inch kraft-pulp subwoofer, two 5-1/4" mid-woofers and a 1-inch soft dome tweeter. The TK-5CT can handle 150 watts, has a frequency response is 45Hz-20kHz, measures 42.5" H x 11" W x 13.25" D and weighs 40 pounds each.

Even though the TK Series is designed to meet a specific price point, RBH did not skimp on the TK Series' construction. 3/4-inch medium density fiberboard is used throughout the design of each model to prevent unwanted cabinet resonance and to enhance performance. Two finishes are available for the TK Series, standard black or rosewood with gloss black top/side accents depending on the model.

The suggested retail prices for the TK Series are: TK-5C, $499.99/pair; TK-515C, $299.99/each; and the TK-5CT, $899.99/pair. The TK Series freestanding speakers are slated to ship mid-October.
