You will receive: Klipsch Heresy III-SpecialEdition-California Black Walnut Loudspeaker

The Klipsch Heresy III Special Edition speakers are an extremely limited production run of our iconic Heresy III loudspeakers, finished in a beautiful exotic real-wood California Black Walnut or East Indian Rosewood. Because of its smaller enclosure, this model offers the greatest degree of placement flexibility from our Heritage Series. Originally introduced in 1957, the Heresy speaker is famed for its compact three-way design utilizing a 12” woofer and horn-loaded midrange and tweeter. Accompanying the new special edition finishes, we’ve handpicked new grilles to complete the ensemble - a vintage lambswool for the California Black Walnut finish, and a beautiful silver luster cloth to compliment the Rosewood design.

Features:

  • True hi-fi sound
  • Limited edition real-wood finish
  • New nameplate & grille
  • Compact horn-loaded design
  • Hand built in the U.S.A
  • Book-matched veneer
  • Titanium diaphragm midrange
  • high frequency compression drivers.
  • 12-inch woofer for powerful low frequencies.

CALIFORNIA BLACK WALNUT
Klipsch is happy to announce a special edition production run of the Heresy in exotic California Black Walnut. This beautiful hardwood is harvested along the west coast of the United States and is a mixture of wood species created by grafting English Walnut and native California Walnut. The heartwood can range from a pale brown to dark chocolate brown, with darker brown streaks. California Black Walnut may have a colorful, streaked appearance which is sometimes referred to as “marbled Claro walnut.” The wood can occasionally also be found with figured grain patterns such as curly, crotch, and burl.

MADE IN AMERICA: HOPE, ARKANSAS
The Klipsch Heresy III speaker is a testament to the quality Klipsch demands from each and every one of its audio products. Remember great sound? We do, too. The Klipsch Heresy III is still made in the USA, by proud craftsmen in Hope, Arkansas. Just like Paul W. Klipsch (PWK) intended.

SPECIAL EDITION
This production run is limited to about 70 pairs of speakers, but future production runs are possible. Each loudspeaker will feature a small edition plaque that is hand-signed by the craftsman.

COMPACT, THREE-WAY LOUDSPEAKER
The Heresy was originally introduced in 1957 as a compact three-way design utilizing a 12” woofer and horn-loaded midrange and tweeter. In 2006, the Heresy III was upgraded with a more powerful woofer, bi-wire network, as well as midrange and tweeter compression drivers, featuring a titanium diaphragm for smooth and accurate definition.

NEW NAMEPLATE AND GRILLE
Each pair of Heresys features “script” style nameplates mounted to a vintage lambswool grille cloth.

NEW RISER
A matte-black slant riser base compliments the California Black Walnut veneer.

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 are 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. Each finished product is inspected and labeled with sequential serial numbers, ensuring that the Heritage series speakers leave the factory as a meticulously crafted set.

ILS DISAIENT QU'IL NE POURRAIT PAS BUT HE DID ANYWAY
When Paul W. Lorsque Klipsch développait une plus petite enceinte à utiliser entre deux Klipschorn, une connaissance a déclaré qu'il ne pourrait pas la commercialiser parce que cela allait à l'encontre des principes du pavillon en coin et frôlait l'hérésie acoustique.
