The Klipschorn is the only fully horn-loaded loudspeaker available to consumers. With its three-way system, each driver is coupled to a 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. The result is the cleanest, most dynamic sound possible throughout the entire musical range.
The Klipschorn features a neodymium tweeter with a 1” polyimide diaphragm and copper-clad aluminum voice coil. This lightweight diaphragm assembly and high strength magnet structure creates the tweeter’s extremely high 109dB sensitivity and makes it the most efficient consumer tweeter in the market. When coupled to a 90° x 40° Tractrix® horn, the tweeter sets new levels of performance for dynamic range and output. The phase plug design extends high frequency performance to 20kHz, meaning you hear the most subtle high frequency details better than ever.
ALL-NEW ENCLOSED DESIGN
The Klipschorn’s low frequency horn has been redesigned and is now fully enclosed. This eliminates the need for the loudspeakers to be positioned tightly in the corner of a listening room. The speaker only needs to be in the proximity of the corner to realize the horn’s full performance. Additionally, the enclosed back provides positioning flexibility to angle the speaker to achieve the best stereo imaging.
PREMIUM INPUT + WIRE MANAGEMENT
The Klipschorn features a riser base that not only enhances the look of the speaker but also improves the wire management so that speaker cables are cleanly hidden.
The Klipschorn’s premium, aluminum input panel accommodates large, high-quality speaker cables. Strong, versatile, and quality binding posts provide the capability for bi-wiring or bi-amping. The quality continues with internal wiring featuring carbon-loaded insulation, nitrogen-injected PE, and solid long-grain copper conductors.
The iconic Klipschorn is the original, three-way, fully horn-loaded loudspeaker that laid the foundation for the Klipsch brand. In its latest rendition, this historic speaker boasts an all-new neodymium tweeter, premium wire management system, and fully-enclosed design for flexible placement.
