Seventy-Year-Old Klipschorn Speaker Is Updated

Klipsch has announced that its Klipschorn speaker has received modern acoustic and cosmetic updates. The Klipschorn was developed in 1946 by audio pioneer and company founder Paul W. Klipsch. Klipsch says it’s the only speaker in the world to be in continuous production for more than 70 years and has remained relatively unchanged since its inception.

The new Klipschorn AK6 features a enclosed low frequency horn cabinet, a new 1” titanium tweeter and a 90° x 40° Tractrix horn — extending the output of high frequencies beyond 20kHz. An updated passive network features AudioQuest internal wiring.

Each Klipschorn use real wood finishes options include natural cherry, satin black ash and American walnut. The Klipschorn loudspeakers are grain-matched using wood veneer panels from the same timber, resulting in a speaker pair that is indistinguishable from the other.

The Klipschorn AK6 ($7,499 ea) speakers are available now and all the detailed specs are here.
