Hand-built and horn loaded speakers are back in fashion in the UK. Yep, you are right; we are talking Klipsch Heritage. Originally dating to 1946, the brand has created quite a name for itself. The new Heritage range comes with four speakers. The top one goes by the name of Klipchorn, a fully horn-loaded, full range, three-way speaker system. It weighs a huge 80 kg and stands 1.28 meters high. The 1-inch tweeter and 2-inch midrange driver alongside a 15-inch fiber- composite woofer give a sensitivity of 105 dB.
Then there is another option called La Scalla II. First launched as a PA speaker for an Arkansas politician, it is quite a catch. The third one is the three-way Cornwall III speaker that boasts a sensitivity to match the fully horn-loaded cabinets. There is a riser base too to help lift it up from the floor.
The cheapest model is the Heresy III that comes equipped with a powerful woofer, bi-wire network, diaphragm tweeter, midrange drivers and a removable slant riser. The price tag for Klipschorn, La Scala, Cornwall III and the Heresy III says $9,500, $5,450, $2,700 and $1,350 respectively.
