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 placement.
- Fully Horn-Loaded Three-Way Loudspeaker
- All-New Neodymium Tweeter
- All-New Enclosed Low-Frequency Horn Design
- Premium Input and Wire Management System
- Book-Matched Wood Veneer
- Designed and Engineered in the USA
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 optimised 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.
Book-Matched Wood Veneer
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.
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 utilises a 1 ½” compression drivers mated to a high efficiency exponential horn that maximises 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.
Built to Last
While each component of the Klipschorn is built to last, Klipsch has always recognised 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.
