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.
A 1” titanium tweeter, paired with a 90° x 40° Tractrix® horn, 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 is 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.
PREMIUM INPUT + WIRE MANAGEMENT
The Klipschorn’s premium, aluminum input panel is now hidden on the side of the speaker for best-in-class wire management.
Strong, versatile, and quality binding posts provide the capability for bi-wiring or bi-amping. The quality continues with internal wiring featuring carbon-loaded insulation, nitrogen-injected PE, and solid long-grain copper conductors.
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.
MATCHED PAIRS | NEW LOOKS
The 75th anniversary Klipschorns feature a unique real wood teak matched veneer and lambswool grilles chosen specifically to highlight the elegance and longevity of the 75th anniversary Klipschorn while paying homage to the mid-century modern design tenets present in the Heritage series. A nostalgic 75th logo on the front of the speaker with a natural 2-mm diamond accentuates the specially-designed logo made of sterling silver, hand-applied enamel, and rhodium plating that ensures tarnish-free aesthetics that last a lifetime.
BUILT TO LAST
Driven by a passion to bring live music into his living room, legendary audio pioneer and company founder Paul W. Klipsch revolutionized the way the world listens to recorded music when he first built the Klipschorn in 1946.
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 craftspeople 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.
