THE GREAT AMERICAN CLASSIC
The genesis of something very, very special occured in a tiny tin shed in Hope, Arkansas in 1946 when Paul W. Klipsch (PWK), genius, madman and maverick, designed and hand built the legendary Klipschorn speaker to enable people, for the first time ever, to experience the power, detail and emotion of a live performance at home.

MADE IN AMERICA: HOPE, ARKANSAS
As the only speaker in the world to be in continuous production for over 70 years, the Klipschorn has remained relatively unchanged since its inception. Remember great sound? We do, too. The Klipschorn is still made in the USA, by proud craftsmen in Hope, Arkansas. Just like Paul W. Klipsch (PWK) intended.

CORNER-HORN SPEAKER
The Klipschorn has truly stood the test of time. Its patented low-frequency horn boasts a unique design which uses the floor and walls of the listening room to complete the horn, increasing the low frequency extension and efficiency. The original corner-horn loudspeaker’s folded low frequency enclosure offers the most efficient use of space possible. Simply put, this is a basic design that cannot be improved according to the laws of physics.

FULLY HORN-LOADED
The Klipschorn is the only fully horn-loaded loudspeaker available to the consumer market which is designed to operate in a corner. With its three-way system, each driver is coupled to an exponential 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 from the loudspeaker’s diaphragm. The result is the cleanest, most dynamic sound possible throughout the entire musical range.

BOOK-MATCHED WOOD VENEER
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.

MATCHED PAIRS
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 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.

AN AMERICAN ORIGINAL
Audio pioneer and company founder Paul W. Klipsch launched the Klipschorn loudspeaker in 1946 to enable people, for the first time ever, to experience the power, detail and emotion of a live performance at home.

HANDCRAFTED IN HOPE, AR
As the only speaker in the world to be in continuous production for over 65 years, the Klipschorn has remained relatively unchanged since its inception. We still make them by hand just the way Paul W. Klipsch used to.

IT STILL ROCKS
In 2005, the company made some minor cosmetic and functional revisions to this legendary speaker, including the elimination of the inset collar, or spacer, between the upper and lower cabinets for a cleaner aesthetic appearance. A horizontal wall seal was added to improve the low frequency horn's response accuracy. Available in a cherry, walnut or black ash wood veneer finish, the Klipschorn reflects a level of high-quality workmanship that will never go out of style. Klipsch Heritage Series speakers are built to order, handmade in the US at our Hope, Arkansas manufacturing facility. Choose "standard shipping" and allow up to 8 weeks turnaround time.
