Klipsch The Fives speakers are dressed in the colors of the McLaren team

Klipsch has introduced a new edition of its popular active speakers, the Klipsch The Fives. Taking advantage of its association with the McLaren Formula 1 team, the well-known manufacturer has launched a special edition of its loudspeakers in the renowned orange color of the British team. Don’t worry, they are not totally orange speakers, as they would be excessively flashy. The new model combines matte black with some McLaren orange details.

Including the television, which will allow us to opt for this type of speaker instead of a sound bar.

The Fives McLaren Edition speakers feature a hand painted matte black finish. McLaren’s signature papaya color can be found on the upper control panel, inside the cone, in the McLaren logo that appears on the acoustic fabric covers and in the braided cable that accompanies the speakers. We also have a nod to Formula 1 in the rubber that equips the speakers in their lower part so that they do not slip, which has a finish that simulates a tire from the highest competition.
