Get to Know Klipsch’s Klipschorn Speaker: An Audio Classic Made for You
This blog has now been updated; you can view this updated post here.
Some pieces of HiFi gear are simply classics that stand the test of time. And when it comes to speakers, one of the great things about them is that while speaker technology has advanced, it also hasn’t. What do we mean by that?
While digital technology has revolutionized audio electronics, including components that were once purely analog like amplifiers, its effect on traditional speakers is less so. DSP (digital signal processing) has made small speakers sound like big ones, but when it comes to traditional hi-fi speakers, the technology behind the woofers, tweeters, crossovers, and cabinet design hasn't changed as much. Of course, there have been advances, but a great speaker from 20 or even 30 years ago is still a great speaker – it is not obsolete, unlike other audio components.
When it comes to classic speaker designs, Klipsch is a company true to its heritage. Their horn designs have been around since Paul Klipsch designed all the speakers himself. Georgia Home Theater recently partnered with Klipsch, which is also one of the world’s largest speaker manufacturers, to bring their classic Heritage Series to the Atlanta area.
In this blog, we’d like to introduce you to the most classic of Klipsch speakers – the Klipschorn. This is the only speaker in continuous production for over 70 years, which says volumes about the durability of its design.
