the klipsch 70th anniversary ‘klipschorn’




company founder paul w. klipsch launched the loudspeakers in 1946 to enable people, for the first time ever, to experience the power, detail and emotion of live performance at home. klipsch is meticulously handcrafting 70 pairs of the anniversary edition in its manufacturing facility in hope, arizona. the newly enhanced rear low-frequency horn is now fully enclosed, offering more placement versatility in the listening room as the enclosure functions as a corner, delivering powerful bass performance. 





each pair of ‘klipschorns’ features a new nameplate celebrating its legendary history and a small plaque identifying its numbered sequence in the series, as well as each craftsman has signed each speaker. a retro-style silver luster grille cloth complements the exotic australian walnut wood veneer. the loudspeakers are grain-matched using wood veneer panels from the same timber, resulting in a pair that is indistinguishable from the other.
