No Confusion Just Baffling!

A good early article on speaker enclosures some good info here. This article doesn't account for my open baffle rage. I don't know why they bug me so much but they do. Maybe its because its just a speaker on a board and takes no skill... Or just irrational speaker hatred.

Early Klipschorn document

The Klipschorn is definately one of the most import loudspeakers ever made. It has no been in production over 60 years. No other speaker can make such a boast. Mark Levinson commented early in his career that the Klipschorn was his favorite speaker and his early solid state amplifiers were voiced with Khorns. I wanted Klipschorns ever since I heard one as a kid and I finally found a used pair locally.

This is an early brochure I found several years ago.

This is one of the earliest Klipschorns in existence. It was hand made by PWK. This is located at the Klipsch Audio History Museum in Hope, AR. It was a rare treat to walk among PWK's collection of speakers and audio technology.
