Because of its relatively “compact” size, this model offers the greatest degree of placement flexibility in the Heritage Series line. First introduced in 1957, the Heresy, a three-way design, started out as a compact centre channel speaker to accompany the Klipschorn® in three-speaker stereo arrays.
In 1985, Klipsch made some changes and improvements to this model and re-released it as the Heresy II. Today, the new Heresy III has a more powerful woofer, a bi-wire network, and a titanium diaphragm tweeter with a larger magnet assembly. The midrange compression driver also features a new titanium diaphragm.
LOOKS AS GOOD AS IT SOUNDS
In addition to delivering smooth, dynamic and low distortion sound, the Heresy III is available in a high-quality cherry, walnut or black ash wood veneer finish. Included is a slant riser base for floor placement that can be removed for cabinet installations.
Please note: Klipsch Heritage Series products are built to order, handmade in the US at Hope, Ark. manufacturing facility. Please allow up to 12 weeks turnaround time.
Audio pioneer and company founder Paul W. Klipsch launched the Klipschorn loudspeaker in
1946 to enable people, for the first time ever, to experience the power, detail and emotion of a live performance at home. Considered a watershed industry event, the introduction of the Klipschorn set the standard for high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, low distortion, and smooth frequency response. These principles, which drive the creation of every single Klipsch loudspeaker, are what make the Klipschorn as sought after today as it was decades ago.
Four classic Heritage Series models, the Klipschorn, La Scala, Cornwall and Heresy are still being manufactured today and are built to order and handmade in the US.
