The original home theater speaker

They say that quality never goes out of style. That must be why, after well over 60 years in continuous production, the Klipschorn remains one of the most highly praised loudspeakers in the world. Originally designed by company founder Paul W. Klipsch to recreate the dynamics and excitement of a live orchestra in his living room, this beast of a speaker went on to set the standard for high fidelity in homes and theaters. With its ultra-high efficiency horn-loaded midrange and tweeter, and a patented 15" folded-horn woofer, the Klipschorn effortlessly delivers the full range of power and emotion behind your favorite records, music CDs, and concert videos. This speaker's stunning performance allows it to unleash a huge wall of sound capable of reaching concert hall levels.

Classic Klipsch design

The Klipschorn's horn-loaded tweeter and midrange compression drivers give it exceptional sensitivity, low distortion, flat frequency response and broad, well-controlled dispersion. This translates to unequaled power, detail, and dynamics, the hallmarks of the classic Klipsch sound. Designed for corner placement, the Klipschorn uses your listening room's walls as an extension of its folded-horn bass cabinet, allowing it to provide the kind of deep bass impact that you can really feel, as well as hear. The Klipschorn's high sensitivity also makes it a great choice for low- and medium-powered tube amps. Plus, dual speaker inputs allow bi-wiring or bi-amping for even better performance.

Klipschorn in cherry

A hand-built beauty

This speaker looks every bit as good as it sounds, featuring a handsome, furniture-grade woodgrain veneer cabinet. Klipsch still makes the Klipschorn one at a time by hand in Hope, Arkansas. Each speaker is available in a beautiful Cherry, Walnut, or Black Ash lacquered finish, and includes a detachable riser base to raise it off the floor if desired.

Floor-standing speakers — still standing tall

Sure, floor-standing tower speakers buck the industry trend toward smaller, visually inconspicuous speakers, but they're hard to beat if great sound is your primary goal. Tower speakers produce powerful sound with excellent bass, making them a great choice for serious music lovers and for folks who want high-impact home theater.
