Heritage 15" Klipschorn® Floorstanding Speaker
Setting the Standard
Audio pioneer and company founder Paul W. Klipsch launched the Klipschorn loudspeaker in 1946 to enable people, for the first time ever, to experience the power, detail and emotion of a live performance at home. Commonly called a corner-horn speaker, the remarkably uncommon Klipschorn includes a highly efficient horn loaded tweeter and midrange compression driver. Its patented folded-horn 15" woofer delivers powerful low frequencies. This speaker set the standard for high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, low distortion, and smooth frequency response. These principles, which drive the creation of every single Klipsch loudspeaker, are what make the Klipschorn as sought after today as it was decades ago.
Proven with Time
As the only speaker in the world to be in continuous production for 60 years, the Klipschorn has remained relatively unchanged since its inception. In 2005, the company made some minor cosmetic and functional revisions to this legendary speaker, including the elimination of the inset collar, or spacer, between the upper and lower cabinets for a cleaner aesthetic appearance. A horizontal wall seal was added to improve the low frequency horn's response accuracy.

Klipsch Heritage Description
Relentless perfectionist, audio pioneer and holder of 23 patents, Paul Wilbur Klipsch started his namesake company with the creation of the Klipschorn® in 1946. Fifty years of continuous innovation later, Paul was inducted into the Engineering and Science Hall of Fame, putting him in the company of Thomas Edison and the Wright Brothers, among others.
Paul’s goal was to reproduce the dynamics and excitement of a live orchestra performance in his living room. An engineering breakthrough when it was introduced, the Klipschorn® remains one of the most highly praised loudspeakers in the world and is the only loudspeaker that has been in continuous production for over 60 years.With extremely high sensitivity, this three-way, fully horn-loaded loudspeaker utilizes the walls and corners of the listening room as part of its design. Able to span more than nine full octaves with rich, smooth, ultra low distortion sound, it’s easy to see why the Klipschorn is truly “A Legend in Sound®.” La Scala®, The Cornwall, and Heresy were created after to complement and enhance the Heritage collections, manifesting a magnificent series like no other.
