Klipsch’s Heritage Wireless Speakers lineup has now expanded to three models; the brand new The Sevens and The Nines join the award-winning The Fives which were introduced in 2020.
All three models share the same design, functionality, and use 1″ titanium tweeters on Tractrix horns. The distinction is the use of three different sized woofers and more power as you move further up the lineup.
- The Fives: 4.5-inch woofer
- The Sevens: 6.5-inch woofer
- The Nines: 8-inch woofer
All Klipsch Heritage Wireless speakers feature Bluetooth wireless technology, digital optical, analog RCA, USB inputs and a subwoofer output.
Klipsch have included an internal MM phono stage for those who wish to connect their turntables, and you can connect your TV to the primary speaker through the HDMI-ARC input.
The Fives, Sevens and Nines are all powered speakers, which mean they include built-in amplifiers. That greatly simplifies setup and negates the need for a separate power amplifier and pre-amplifier to control them.
Klipsch boasts its Heritage line supports hi-res audio up 24-bit/192kHz; you will need to connect them to your source device using a wired connection for that to happen.
Most users are likely to stream music wirelessly via Bluetooth, because built-in access to music streaming services (Spotify Connect or TIDAL Connect) is one feature missing that can be found in competing models, such as the SVS Prime Wireless Pro Wireless Speakers.
Designed with luxury materials such as real wood veneer and tactile switches and knobs, Klipsch’s Heritage Wireless Series blend the acoustics and classic design legacy of Paul W. Klipsch with the latest technologies available today.
Klipsch Heritage Wireless powered speakers incorporate award-winning, proprietary Klipsch Reference acoustic horn-loaded technology and tuning to deliver loud and precise audio with enhanced bass and low distortion.
Built-in dynamic bass equalization matches the ear’s ability to hear lower frequencies, delivering powerful bass at any volume.
Klipsch The Nines and The Sevens feature 1” titanium tweeters on Tractrix horns. Larger in size and output, The Nines feature 240W total system power and an all-new 8” long-throw high excursion composite cone woofer.
Meanwhile, the mid-sized The Sevens offer 200W total system power with a 6.5” long-throw woofer for room filling sound and extended bass response.
Klipsch’s The Nines and The Sevens powered monitors are compatible with the Klipsch Connect App, giving users access to customize EQ and subwoofer volume settings, dynamic bass, night listening mode, over-the-air firmware upgrades, a digital quick-start guide, and much more.

hopefully they’ve fixed the biggest problem with the Fives which is that there’s no smart input switching of any kind. seriously, if you connect to bluetooth you still have to walk over and flip the input selector to bluetooth. if they’ve figured that out then these will be dramatically better speakers.

You can change inputs with the app.
