Our flagship speaker, the Klipschorn offers an unequaled combination of high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, low distortion, smooth frequency response and powerful bass. Features include:
The renowned folded horn woofer. The horn has always been the most efficient means for reproducing sound. However, an impractically long horn is needed to create the deep bass notes. The Klipschorn solves this problem by folding a long horn into a more compact size. In addition, the Klipschorn is designed to fit snugly into a room corner so that the adjoining walls and floor actually become an extension of the horn.
A unique compression driver/horn tweeter. Mounted on the outer face of the cabinet, the unique compression driver/horn tweeter of the Klipschorn reduces distortion by minimizing the possibility of any sound defraction at cabinet edge. You hear a sharply focused, lifelike stereo image and breathtaking dynamic range.
A powerful midrange compression driver/horn assembly. The distortionless sound and unbelievable dynamic range of the Klipschorn are also made possible by the powerful midrange compression driver/horn assembly. This midrange marvel can deliver an amazing 104 decibels from just one watt of power, which makes it also perfectly capable of handling the dynamic peaks on any music.
A passive crossover network. This network takes incoming electrical information and assigns it to the proper driver to assure the smoothest frequency response. Heavy duty speaker cable connections are used so the loss of information at the speaker is virtually eliminated.
The essential Klipschorn cabinetry. Cabinets are given the same attention to detail as any other part of our speakers because they play a major role in helping reproduce the famous Klipsch sound. Each pair is precisely matched for color and grain structure and offers a selection of woods and finishes.
