Klipschorn & Heresy Loudspeakers Return for Encore

Klipsch 70th Anniversary Klipschorn Loudspeaker Finishes

Klipsch is commemorating its 70th anniversary by issuing limited runs of its Klipschorn and Heresy Heritage series speakers. Special attention has been paid to the details of each new speaker, as they feature design enhancements, exotic Australian Walnut wood veneer finishes, special edition logos and unique grille cloths. Only 70 pairs of each will be made in Hope, AR.

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. It is the only speaker in the world to be in continuous production for over 70 years and has remained relatively unchanged since its inception, as its folded low frequency enclosure offers the most efficient use of space possible.

Klipsch 70th Anniversary Klipschorn Loudspeaker

The 70th Anniversary edition Klipschorn floorstanding loudspeaker offers a newly enhanced rear low-frequency horn that is now fully enclosed, offering more placement versatility in the listening room as the enclosure functions as a corner, delivering powerful bass performance. The Klipschorn loudspeakers are grain-matched using wood veneer panels from the same timber, resulting in a speaker pair that is indistinguishable from the other.

Klipsch 70th Anniversary Heresy Loudspeaker

The original Heresy loudspeaker was released in 1957 as a compact center channel speaker to accompany the Klipschorn in three-speaker stereo arrays. Because of its relatively compact size, the Heresy offers the greatest degree of placement flexibility in the Heritage series. In its third iteration, 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. The 70th Anniversary edition Heresy sits on a matte-black slant riser base that complements the enclosure.
