Klipsch was founded by an American engineer and audio pioneer Paul W. Klipsch in 1946 in a small tin shed in Hope, Arkansas, USA. Unsatisfied with the sound produced by the speakers of that time, Paul used his knowledge in engineering and physics to manufacture and patent the corner horn speaker design.
Presently, Klipsch offer a complete line of high-end loudspeakers, home theatre systems, portable speakers, headphones and outdoor speakers. Klipsch produce a line of speakers to stream wirelessly in multiple rooms as well as soundbars and supporting hi-fi components.
The company was founded on four basic principles that still drive the design of every Klipsch speaker:
- High Efficiency: every speaker in the line has an interior horn-shaped design that provides accurate and dynamic sound transmission.
- Low Distortion: Klipsch speakers promise to have high sensitivity with a wide dynamic range for both quiet and louder sounds. Klipsch speakers have exceptional clarity and even the softest sounds will be heard with detail, while the loudest sounds will have no distortion.
- Controlled directivity: Klipsch speakers horn drivers have controlled directivity which creates the perfect natural soundstage.
- Flat frequency response: Klipsch speakers deliver the most accurate sound and provides a good balance between bass, mid-range, and treble sounds, so that the sound delivered is exactly what the musician or artist envisioned.
Paul’s aim was to reproduce the natural sound and dynamics of a live performance in a living room. The Heritage line was first introduced by Paul and still includes flagship models such as the Klipschorn, La Scala, Cornwall and Heresy. The Klipschorn has been a real breakthrough since invention and remains one of the most legendary and highly praised products as the only loudspeaker that has been in continuous production for more than 70 years.
