Klipsch La Scala AL5 3-way Fully Horn-Loaded Loudspeaker (American Walnut)
THE MOST VERSATILE
Originally designed for professional use, the Klipsch La
Scala has proven itself as an outstanding choice for the audiophile as well.
The La Scala brings the most subtle musical details to life, always delivering
the legendary Klipsch sound with clarity and ease. On a single watt, it
generates 105 decibels of sound pressure, which means that the La Scala will
delight the listener even while using the most modest amplifier power.
DESIGNED AND MADE IN
THE USA USING DOMESTIC AND IMPORTED COMPONENTS
The La Scala loudspeaker is built to rigid Klipsch standards
— the toughest in the industry! Remember great sound? We do, too. The Klipsch
La Scala II enclosure is still made in the USA, by proud craftsmen in Hope,
Arkansas. Just like Paul W. Klipsch intended.
The La Scala 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
high 105dB 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.
According to Paul W. Klipsch, “the midrange is where we
live” and is one of the most critical parts in any loudspeaker design. The La
Scala’s midrange utilizes a 2” compression driver 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. BI-AMP
INPUT PANEL AND
The La Scala’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, nitrogeninjected PE and solid long-grain copper
Klipsch only uses book-matched wood veneers for the Heritage
series. 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 The LF and HF cabinets are also matched for continuous grain and
color from top to bottom.
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
indistinguishable from the other. The speakers move seamlessly together through
the factory, and each finished product is inspected and labeled with sequential
serial numbers, ensuring that your Heritage series speaker leaves the factory
as a meticulously crafted set.
BUILT TO LAST
While each and every component of the La Scala
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, Klipsch has always put an
extraordinary emphasis on cabinet design. The La Scala II enclosure is
assembled using only the highest-grade adhesives and fasteners. This is a
speaker you will hand down from generation
