Symphony 440 Design Group is proud to bring to its prospects the best of products of Klipsch Audio Technologies or Klipsch Speakers, one of the first American loudspeaker companies fondly known for their premium speakers since 1946. Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, Klipsch speakers is recognized worldwide for their headphones, loudspeakers and connected equipments for a high end, high fidelity sound systems, public address applications, personal computers and Klipsch home theatres.
Klipsch speakers were originally founded by Paul W. Klipsch, an American audio pioneer while operating inside a tin shed in Hope, Arkansas. Being a true music enthusiast, Paul devoted himself in inventing such speaker technologies that would reproduce the thrill of a live orchestra performance into his living room.
On January 6, 2011, Audiovox, an American consumer electronics company announced that the company had entered into a mutual term to purchase all the shares of Klipsch Group, which was completed in March 1, 2011.
The Klipschorn speaker:
Klipsch speakers began to carve its history in 1946 with Paul’s invention of the Klipschorn loudspeaker to enable people, for the first time, 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 acoustic horn loaded for its tweeter to increase the efficiency of the midrange compression driver.
The Principles of Klipsch sound:
Paul W. Klipsch believed in four principles to be the foundation for great sound, that still rule the design of every new Klipsch speakers, today, and tomorrow:
High Efficiency / Low Distortion: Klipsch horn technology is highly efficient, providing more accurate sound with less power and fewer distortion, leading to louder, cleaner audio.Klipsch’s Law: Efficiency is inversely proportional to distortion.
Controlled Directivity : Klipsch horn technology accurately directs sound to the proper locations, which, in turn, creates a more lifelike soundstage without wasting acoustic energy where sound is not needed or desired.
Wide Dynamic Range: The softest sounds are reproduced with remarkable clarity and the loudest sounds are delivered without harshness or distortion – with the greatest possible range between the softest and loudest sounds.
Flat Frequency Response: Audio is delivered without frequency bias – no unnatural highs, mids or lows – reproducing recorded sound as accurately as possible without colorization.
Klipsch speakers specifically designed technological features:
Tractrix® Horns: Tractrix® Horns have for several years been the driving force behind Klipsch’s spectacularly precise acoustics. Featured in every Klipsch speaker category, apart from the headphones and subwoofers, this proprietary technology provides a flawless combination of precision, clarity and effortless power.
Cerametallic woofers: Klipsch’s Cerametallic woofers exhibit a very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and a tremendous amount of damping, resulting in a powerful, solid bass foundation.
Wide Dispersion Surround Technology: As the cornerstone of every Klipsch surround speaker, proprietary Wide Dispersion Surround Technology (WDST) provides astounding sonic detail for rooms with less-than-ideal placement configurations.
Klipsch speakers – Heritage Series:
Klipsch Heritage series includes those speakers meticulously designed and worked on by the pioneer, Paul W Klipsch himself. Each Klipsch speakers is assembled with furniture-grade wood veneers and features the cornerstone horn-loaded technology to deliver an unparalleled acoustic experience.
Klipschorn: These horn loudspeakers, being the only speaker to be in continuous production for over six decades, prove advantageous as they are more efficient and produce 10 times (10db) greater sound power than any other normal speaker for the same amplifier output.
Heresy: First introduced in 1957, the Heresy, a three-way design, started out as a compact center channel speaker to accompany the Klipschorn in three-speaker stereo arrays. Due to its relatively compact size, this model offers a great range of placement flexibility in the Heritage Series line. Thereafter, Heresy II and III were unveiled with better technologies and improved features.
Cornwall: The Cornwall derives its name from being the first Klipsch speaker designed to operate from either a corner or against a wall (corn/wall). Introduced in 1959, it was designed to serve as a larger, full-range alternative to the Heresy to be used as a center channel speaker between two widely spaced Klipschorns. Its production however being discontinued in 1990, was relaunched in 2005 with the newly revised edition of Cornwall III.
La Scala: Named after the Teatro alla Scala in Italy, the La Scala was originally introduced in 1963. Spectacularly improved over the years, the La Scala imitates Klipschorn in performance but from a smaller cabinet that does not require a corner location. It is fondly remembered for its high efficiency along with the production of high volumes in undetectable distortion.
Belle Klipsch: Named after his first wife Eva Belle, Paul released the Belle Klipsch in 1971 as a re-proportioned speaker with essentially the same acoustic performance as the La Scala. This three-way loudspeaker, though no longer in production is still owned and listened to by Klipsch fans around the world.
Other noteworthy heritage series speakers known for their design and acoustical performance, though not specifically designed by Paul are:
Klipsch Forte: First launched in 1985, Forte was designed as a three-way loudspeaker which continued to be manufactured till 1989. It was however re-launched in 1996 with Forte III having updated cosmetics and the latest advancements in acoustic engineering, while maintaining the original elegant design and powerful performance.
Chorus: The three-way Chorus was first introduced in 1987 and manufactured by Klipsch until 1996. Though no longer in production, Chorus model loudspeakers are still one of the foremost choice for Klipsch fans around the world as part of two-channel audio and home theater surround sound systems.
Quartet: The three-way Quartet floorstanding loudspeaker was first introduced in 1989 and manufactured by Klipsch until 1996. These were used exclusively for Klipsch home theater systems.
