The Klipsch Heresy III loudspeaker features a three-way
design that uses horn-loaded compression drivers for midrange and treble
reproductions and a direct radiating 12" woofer for the low frequencies.
1" Tweeter (w/ Tractrix Horn):
The 1" (K-107-TI) titanium
diaphragm compression driver is coupled to a Tractrix Horn for smoother
high-end response with greater extension, enhanced imaging, and more
1.75" Midrange (w/ Exponential Horn):
The 1.75" (K-53-TI)
titanium diaphragm compression driver is coupled with an Exponential Horn
for detailed, accurate midrange sound.
The 12" (K-28-E) fiber-composite cone woofer delivers powerful low
frequencies. The 12" woofer also employs a treated cloth surround for
added efficiency and flexibility.
Crossover Network: For signal purity and perfect driver
integration, the crossover (HF: 5500Hz/MF: 850Hz) on the Heresy III features the
finest components and Klipsch custom internal wiring.
The Klipsch Heresy III loudspeaker employs a solid,
inert MDF cabinet which minimizes panel vibrations that can color sound. The
acoustic suspension (sealed) design lends itself to the speaker's accurate,
natural sound reproduction. The Heresy III is available in a high-quality
cherry, walnut, or black ash real-wood veneer finish.
Dual Binding Post Speaker Terminals:
The Klipsch Heresy III
loudspeaker has two sets of binding posts connected by jumpers. Using the dual
binding posts, you can bi-amp or bi-wire the speakers. The binding post
terminals will accept banana plugs (single/dual), pin-connectors,
spade-connectors, and bare wire.
The Klipsch Heresy III loudspeaker will perform well in a
variety of locations. Corner, floor placement will deliver the highest degree of
low bass reinforcement and the pre-installed slant riser base helps to compensate for
the Heresy's short stature. This riser may be removed for shelf or cabinet
placement. Self-stick rubber pads are supplied for attachment to the bottom of
the cabinet to prevent scratching of shelves and hard surfaces. Best results
will be achieved using the following general guidelines.
- Place on a common wall 6' to 15' apart.
- Position them equidistant from the wall behind the speakers and
equidistant height above the floor (place at ear level if shelf or cabinet
mounting the speaker).
- Angle speakers toward the listener and even with or forward of any
- Placing them near a corner or wall provides the greatest amount of bass
while moving the speakers away from room boundaries reduces bass.
- Asymmetrical placement of a pair of speakers from adjacent side walls
can smooth room-induced bass unevenness.
Experiment with the above guidelines to suit your taste and
to compensate for your room's acoustic characteristics.
The Klipsch Heresy III loudspeaker is built to order and
handmade in the USA at Klipsch's manufacturing facility in Arkansas.
