In celebration of its 60th anniversary, Klipsch has designed a special limited edition of the legendary Klipschorn. Originally developed by audio pioneer Paul W. Klipsch in 1946, the Klipschorn set the industry standard for high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, low distortion, smooth frequency response and powerful bass. With a limited run of 200 pairs, the 60th anniversary Klipschorn is crafted for high-quality sonic performance and adorned with distinct aesthetic features that will never be available again.
While each speaker's high-frequency cabinet is decked out in a high gloss black piano finish, the front panel of the low-frequency cabinet comes in a sophisticated Lacewood veneer. The black anodized solid aluminum kick plate at the bottom of the speaker features a silver PWK logo with a real diamond inset, the stone that represents 60 years.
For the first time ever, the rear of the speaker has received a cosmetic, and functional "facelift." Solid panels now enclose the rear high frequency and low frequency cabinets to add a more elegant appearance, eliminate any corner and response issues and for the first time in the Klipschorns history allow for toe in or out.
Two windows are also included on the back of each anniversary Klipschorn to display an upgraded crossover network and a silver, engraved plaque that honors PWK and lists the speaker's limited production number.
For signal purity and perfect driver integration, the crossovers are made with premium components and feature high-end Van den Hul internal wiring. Magnetic grille posts allow for secure attachment and easy removal of the low-frequency grilles, while top-grade WBT binding posts ensure secure connection to any type of cable.
While no longer available, the 60th Anniversary Klipschorn speakers are owned and listened to by Klipsch fans around the world. To connect with other people who are passionate about audio and interested in Klipsch products, visit our open forum bulletin board.
