Founded in 1946 by America's most celebrated audio pioneer, Paul Klipsch, his ultimate goal was to reproduce the excitement of a live orchestra performance in his living room. ?Movie theaters and concert halls had long used horns to reproduce motion picture soundtracks, however those horns, at over nine feet long, were much too large for use in the home. Klipsch achieved his objective by making the Klipschorn a fully horn-loaded design by folding the horn back onto itself and placing the speaker cabinet in a corner, making the walls of the room an extension of the horn; technology that established industry standards for high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, low distortion, smooth frequency response and powerful bass. As a result, horn loading has and always will be the driving force behind the Klipsch brand’s highly efficient, stunningly precise sound.
While the designs have changed along the way, the foundation of Klipsch's work — horn-loaded technology — has remained constant, allowing them to more closely reproduce the quality and tonal characteristics of live sound.
