Relentless perfectionist, audio pioneer and holder of 23 patents, Paul Wilbur Klipsch started his namesake company with the creation of the Klipschorn® in 1946. Fifty years of continuous innovation later, Paul was inducted into the Engineering and Science Hall of Fame, putting him in the company of Thomas Edison and the Wright Brothers, among others. Richard Heyser, writing for Audio magazine once said "...the Klipschorn, along with its designer Paul Klipsch, are true legends in the field of high-fidelity sound. Nothing I could write would do complete justice to its description..."

We couldn't have said it better.

Paul’s goal was to reproduce the dynamics and excitement of a live orchestra performance in his living room. An engineering breakthrough when it was introduced, the Klipschorn® remains one of the most highly praised loudspeakers in the world and is the only loudspeaker that has been in continuous production for over 60 years. With extremely high sensitivity, this three-way, fully horn-loaded loudspeaker utilizes the walls and corners of the listening room as part of its design. Able to span more than nine full octaves with rich, smooth, ultra low distortion sound, it’s easy to see why the Klipschorn is truly “A Legend in Sound®.”

Throughout this website you will find old adverts giving you an insight into the history and pedigree behind Klipsch.
