The genesis of something very, very special occurred in a tiny tin shed in Hope, Arkansas in 1946 when Paul W. Klipsch, genius, madman and maverick, designed and hand-built the legendary Klipschorn® speaker with the goal of bringing live music into his living room. He was an American audio pioneer, a true eccentric and a proud member of the engineering and science hall of fame. He gave rise to speaker technologies that would forever impact generations of music lovers. His passion enabled theirs. Over time, Klipsch speakers have become the stuff of legends. People swear by their breakthroughs in modern acoustics, citing something akin to a religious experience with every listen.
PWK’s revolutionary sound lives on today in every hyper-efficient horn loaded product they make. Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, their world-class speakers and headphones allow people to connect with their favourite music like no other brand by delivering the power, detail and emotion of the live music experience. From immersive cinema speakers to mind-blowing home theatre speakers, incredibly clear soundbars, powerful portable wireless speakers and the most comfortable studio-quality in-ear monitors on the planet, they’ve been impacting lives with vibrant, true audio for the better part of a century. Remember great sound? They never forgot. They are here to keep the flame burning for their legions of loyal, rabid fans. They’re here to pass the legacy along. They are knights and humble servants of audio’s holy grail. They are Keepers of the Sound.
Paul W. Klipsch believed four principles to be the foundation for great sound. They continue to drive the design of every new Klipsch speaker, today and tomorrow:
High Efficiency / Low Distortion
Klipsch horn technology is highly efficient, providing more accurate sound with less power and less distortion – resulting in louder, cleaner audio. Klipsch’s Law: Efficiency is inversely proportional to distortion.
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.
