The iconic Klipschorn is the original, three-way, fully
horn-loaded loudspeaker that laid the foundation for the Klipsch brand. In its
latest rendition, this historic speaker boasts an all-new neodymium tweeter,
premium wire management system, and fully-enclosed design for flexible

The Klipschorn is the only fully horn-loaded loudspeaker available
to consumers. With its three-way system, each driver is coupled to a horn and
optimized to operate in its individual pass-band. This allows the Klipschorn to
be a staggering 10 to 20 times more efficient than other conventional
loudspeakers. Higher efficiency yields greater acoustic power, which is
generated with considerably less effort. The result is the cleanest, most
dynamic sound possible throughout the entire musical range.


The Klipschorn features a neodymium tweeter with a 1”
polyimide diaphragm and copper clad aluminum voice coil. This lightweight
diaphragm assembly and high strength magnet structure creates the tweeter’s
extremely high 109dB sensitivity and makes it the most efficient consumer
tweeter in the market. When coupled to a 90° x 40° Tractrix® horn, the tweeter
sets new levels of performance for dynamic range and output. The phase plug
design extends high frequency performance to 20kHz, meaning you hear the most
subtle high frequency details better than ever.


The Klipschorn’s low frequency horn has been redesigned and
is now fully enclosed. This eliminates the need for the loudspeakers to be
positioned tightly in the corner of a listening room. The speaker only needs to
be in the proximity of the corner to realize the horn’s full performance.
Additionally, the enclosed back provides positioning flexibility to angle the
speaker to achieve the best stereo imaging.


The Klipschorn features a riser base that not only enhances
the look of the speaker, but also improves the wire management so that speaker
cables are cleanly hidden.

The Klipschorn’s premium, aluminum input panel accommodates
large, high-quality speaker cables. Strong, versatile and quality binding posts
provide the capability for bi-wiring or bi-amping. The quality continues with
AudioQuest Type 4 with Star-Quad Geometry internal wiring featuring
carbon-loaded insulation, nitrogen-injected PE and solid long-grain copper


According to Paul W. Klipsch, “the midrange is where we
live” and is one of the most critical parts in any loudspeaker design. The
Klipschorn’s midrange utilizes a 1 ½” compression drivers mated to a high
efficiency exponential horn that maximizes the system’s power and performance.
As a result, less distortion is produced by the amplifier and by the
loudspeaker. That means clarity, accuracy and remarkable tonal definition.


Klipsch only uses book-matched wood veneers for the Heritage
series of speakers. The veneer leaves are kept in order as they are delicately
sliced from the timber and precisely arranged to provide a mirror image at the
splice joint — like turning the pages of a book. This gives each speaker an
aesthetically appealing and consistent appearance that is treasured more than
any other cut of wood veneer.


Each pair of Heritage series loudspeakers is grain-matched,
using wood veneer panels that come from the same timber. Each cabinet is
carefully matched so that each speaker in the pair is practically identical to
each other. While the speakers move seamlessly together through the factory,
each finished product is inspected and labeled with sequential serial numbers,
ensuring that every Heritage series speaker leaves the factory as a
meticulously crafted set.


While each component of the Klipschorn is built to last,
Klipsch has always recognized the unique and critical role of a loudspeaker’s
cabinet in the sound reproduction process. From the craftsmen in Hope, AR, to
the engineers in Indianapolis, IN, Klipsch has always put an extraordinary
emphasis on cabinet design. Crafted from over a hundred wood panels, the
Klipschorn enclosure is assembled using only the highest-grade adhesives and
fasteners. This is a speaker you will hand down from generation to generation.


The Klipschorn features an all-new script logo
and deluxe silver metallic grille cloth for a nostalgic aesthetic that’s
reminiscent of this iconic speaker’s inception.
