Klipsch Klipschorn AK6 Heritage Floorstand Speakers (PAIR)
The new Klipschorn AK6 features a fully enclosed low frequency horn cabinet, offering more placement versatility in the listening room as the enclosure functions as a corner, delivering powerful bass performance and improved imaging. New 1” titanium tweeter and 90° x 40° Tractrix® horn extends the output of high frequencies beyond 20kHz. An updated passive network features premium grade AudioQuest® internal wiring. AK 6 AK-6
Each Klipschorn continues to be designed and handcrafted in the USA. All-new real wood finishes options include natural cherry, satin black ash, and American Walnut to complement modern furniture. The Klipschorn loudspeakers are grain-matched using wood veneer panels from the same timber, resulting in a speaker pair that is indistinguishable from the other.
A retro-style silver luster grille cloth complements each wood veneer and features a nostalgic script “Klipschorn” cast zinc logo. The redesigned riser base, input panel, and cable management system ensure the cabinet’s clean lines.
- Highly efficient: 105 dB 1W / 1M

- 2" midrange and 1" tweeter compression drivers.
- Capable of extreme output levels with ultra low distortion and astonishing dynamic range
- Available in a high-quality Black Ash, Cherry, or Walnut wood veneer finish
Capable of extreme output levels and immensely clean playback, Klipschorn AK6 features a new fully enclosed low-frequency horn that eliminates the prior need for each speaker to be placed tightly against the corner of a room. As long as it is the proximity of a corner, you'll realize the dramatic ability of the horn. A newly designed enclosed back further provides positioning flexibility to angle each Klipschorn AK6 to attain optimal stereo imaging. And yes, the speaker's physics still utilize the walls and floor as low-frequency extensions of its patented folded-horn 15-inch woofer – one of the most revolutionary inventions in high-end history.
Enhanced with a passive network equipped with AudioQuest Type 4 Star-Quad Geometry wiring, Klipschorn AK6's three-way system also involves a one-and-a-half-inch midrange mated to a high-efficiency exponential horn as well as the most efficient (109dB) tweeter you can buy: A one-inch neodymium tweeter with a lightweight polyimide diaphragm and copper-clad voice coil coupled to a 90 x 40-degree Tractix horn. The latter's phase plug design extends the high-frequency performance to an astounding 20kHz. Each Klipschorn AK6 driver is further optimized to operate in its individual pass-band arrangement that permits this bespoke speaker to be a staggering 10 to 20 times more efficient than other conventional loudspeakers. Higher efficiency means greater acoustic power generated with considerably less effort from the loudspeaker's diaphragm. Let's just say you'll likely never need a subwoofer or doubt what a tube amplifier can do ever again.
