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 our breakthroughs in modern acoustics, citing something akin to a religious experience with every listen.
Paul Wilbur Klipsch (PWK) was an American audio pioneer, a true eccentric and a proud member of the engineering and science hall of fame.
Every new speaker that has the Klipsch logo bestowed upon it is designed and engineered with pride at our worldwide headquarters in Indianapolis.
There are four principles of the Klipsch sound. High Efficiency, Controlled Directivity, Wide Dynamic Range and Flat Frequency Response. Learn how these are respresented in our latest tech.
