Heritage 15" La Scala II Floorstanding Speaker
When the La Scala first launched in 1963, audio pioneer Paul W. Klipsch made it for Arkansas gubernatorial candidate Winthrop Rockefeller to use as a public address speaker. The fully horn-loaded, three-way La Scala sounded so good people wanted to put it in their living rooms.
Remaining virtually unchanged since those early campaign days, Klipsch decided to cosmetically improve the raw-looking La Scala by totally redesigning the way the cabinet was constructed. The goal was the achieve a more finished appearance and improve cabinet rigidity. It is now available in a variety of high-quality wood veneer finishes, including cherry, walnut and black ash. The La Scala II also includes a grille to cover the mid and high frequency horns. The bass horn cabinet walls are now constructed of 1-inch thick MDF rather than ¾-inch plywood to offer more support, decrease resonance and deliver cleaner bass response. This speaker delivers sparkling highs, extreme output and unsurpassed low distortion bass response as the original design.

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.
