1951 High Fidelity Ads Featuring Khorns

It is interesting that the Klipschorn shown right next to the Brociner electronic crossover and preamp. In this 1951 magazine Klipsch has several ads one in this report, a Brociner, and RadioShack ad. It wasn't long after this that Klipsch quit liocensing others to build their speakers.

Restored Designer Klipschorns

 These are amazing Klipschorn refurbs. The veneer and the horns look great. I can't help but think the MF and HF need a baffle but otherwise they knocked this out of the ballpark. Great skill and craftsmanship here.

One-time Opportunity Sale Of Museum Edition Klipschorn AK6-ME

My wife and I are trustees of the Klipsch Heritage Museum Of Audio History so it is a cause very close to us. They are offering the very first pair of museum edition Klipschorns. These are very special as the veneer is unique and it incorporates the latest Klipschorn updates. All proceeds go to the Klipsch Heritage Museum Of Audio History.

Prodigal Vitavox Klipschorn

Jim Hunter purchased a Vitavox Klipschorn around 2002 but it got lost. They thought it was lost in shipping but instead lost in the Klipsch catacombs. During a Klipsch factory cleanup Roy Delgado found the mystery crate and sent it to the Klipsch Museum Of Audio History across the street.  I was lucky enough to be on site helping Jim Hunter with a few things at the museum.

Here it is intact.

Jim Hunter says this is one of the earlier late 40's Klipschorn models.
It is essentially a shell wrapped around a Klipschorn.
The S2 driver was missing from the midrange horn.

The amazing K15-40 was still in the cabinet. 
 
The crossover was mounted on a thick phenolic board. 
 Here is the lost Vitavox finally in the museum. It will need some repair work.

Brociner Klipsch Speaker System

A pre Klipschorn advert from Brociner. I'm not sure what year that started using the phrase Klipschorn perhas late 1940's. I'll have to ask Klipsch historian Jim Hunter about this one.

1947 The Klipsch Sound Reproducer Article By Paul W Klipsch

A little heavy on the Klipsch posts lately but thats ok as they are practicatlly the last man standing of companies from the dawn of Hi-Fi. That is still made in the US.  

This article is special as it is 1947 and the article is by PWK himself. Read the article it is brilliant and no Bullshit! The article appears to be before the name Klipschorn is used.
