Klipsch Klipschorn 70th Anniversary :
CELEBRATING 70 LEGENDARY YEARS
In celebration of Klipsch’s 70th anniversary, exclusive limited-edition Klipschorn® speakers are being manufactured in exotic Australian Walnut wood veneer. Australian Walnut (also known as Queensland Walnut) is grown in the coastal tablelands of North Queensland, Australia. The species varies in color, but is usually a pale-golden hue highly contrasted with darker streaks of chocolate brown, grey, black or even pink. Australian Walnut grain is moderately close and even, and sometimes wavy, resulting in a wide variety of figure effects.
DESIGNED AND MADE IN THE USA USING DOMESTIC AND IMPORTED COMPONENTS
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 enclosure is still made in the USA, by proud craftsmen in Hope, Arkansas. Just like Paul W. Klipsch (PWK) intended.
As the only loudspeaker in the world to be continuously produced for 70 years, the Klipschorn has truly stood the test of time. Its patented low-frequency horn boasts a unique design that utilizes 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.
The 70th anniversary Klipschorn is limited to a production run of only 70 pairs of speakers. Each speaker features a small plaque identifying its numbered sequence in the series and was signed by the craftsman.
Each pair of Klipschorn features a product nameplate celebrating its legendary history as the only consumer loudspeaker continuously produced for 70 years. NEW VINTAGE GRILLE A unique, silver luster grille cloth complements the beautiful Australian Walnut wood veneer.
NEW LOW-FREQUENCY HORN
The rear low-frequency horn has been enhanced and is fully enclosed, offering more placement versatility in the listening room.
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.
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, 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.
