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 is signed by the craftsman.All 70th Anniversary speakers are housed in a book matched, limited edition Australian Walnut wood veneer.
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, 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 fundamental design that cannot be improved according to the laws of physics.
HANDCRAFTED IN HOPE, AR
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.
We still make them by hand just the way Paul W. Klipsch used to.
LIMITED AUSTRALIAN WALNUT
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.
This wood will only be used on 70th Anniversary Edition speakers.
NEW LOW-FREQUENCY HORN
The rear low-frequency horn has been enhanced and is fully enclosed, offering more placement versatility in the listening room.
NEW NAMEPLATE AND GRILLE
Each pair of 70th Anniversary Klipschorns features a product nameplate mounted to a beautiful, silver luster grille cloth.
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.
