Klipsch Heritage feature page

In 1946, Paul W. Klipsch – genius, madman and maverick – designed and hand-built the legendary Klipschorn®, thus giving rise to speaker research and invention that will forever impact generations of music lovers and audio pioneers. These Heritage Premium Audio Products are a testament to our founder’s vision of bringing the live music experience into your home.


KLIPSCHORN AK6

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.
