Classic Klipsch sound that never goes out of style

I'll never forget the first time I heard the Klipsch Heresys. It was by sheer coincidence. A college housemate had shown up at the door with a pair of them that he'd brought from home. Even way back then their design was over 20 years old, and they looked more like antiques than audio gear to me. Confident that my own then-up-to-the-minute and highly rated bookshelf speakers were more than a match for these "elder statesmen," I invited my housemate to hook them up for a listening session (and a little lesson in humility, heh heh).

But I was the one who was taken to school that day. The instant we fired up the Heresys I was speechless. Their sparkling clarity and dynamic range were on a level that my speakers could never touch. All the musical details came pouring out loud and clear in ways I'd never heard before. And although I never told him, I was totally envious. Many years later I can't even remember Chris's last name, but I'll never forget the sound of those Heresys and the lasting impression they made on me.

Heresy III A modern take on a time-honored design

Since that day long ago, Klipsch has tweaked and fine-tuned their classic design to create the Heresy III. A more powerful woofer, large-magnet titanium diaphragm tweeter, and new titanium diaphragm midrange compression driver all work together to give this speaker a thoroughly up-to-date sound. Klipsch also added dual speaker inputs to allow bi-wiring or bi-amping for even greater performance levels. And they increased the Heresey's already high-efficiency design by 3 dB to an impressive 99 dB making them an excellent choice for low- and medium-powered tube amps.

Just about the only thing that hasn't changed is the quality. Klipsch still makes the Heresy one at a time by hand in Hope, Arkansas. Each speaker is available in a beautiful Cherry, Walnut, or Black Ash lacquered wood veneer finish, and includes an angled riser base for floor placement that can be removed for custom installations.

Features



  • 3-Way Design: The Klipsch Heresy III loudspeaker features a three-way design that uses horn-loaded compression drivers for midrange and treble reproductions and a direct radiating 12" woofer for the low frequencies.

    • 1" Tweeter (w/ Tractrix Horn): The 1" (K-107-TI) titanium diaphragm compression driver is coupled to a Tractrix Horn for smoother high-end response with greater extension, enhanced imaging, and more powerful dynamics.
    • 1.75" Midrange (w/ Exponential Horn): The 1.75" (K-53-TI) titanium diaphragm compression driver is coupled with an Exponential Horn for detailed, accurate midrange sound.
    • 12" Woofer: The 12" (K-28-E) fiber-composite cone woofer delivers powerful low frequencies. The 12" woofer also employs a treated cloth surround for added efficiency and flexibility.

    Crossover Network: For signal purity and perfect driver integration, the crossover (HF: 5500Hz/MF: 850Hz) on the Heresy III features the finest components and Klipsch custom internal wiring.

    MDF Enclosure: The Klipsch Heresy III loudspeaker employs a solid, inert MDF cabinet which minimize panel vibrations that can color sound. The acoustic suspension (sealed) design lends itself to the speaker's accurate, natural sound reproduction. The Heresy III is available in a high-quality cherry, walnut, or black ash real-wood veneer finish.

    Dual Binding Post Speaker Terminals: The Klipsch Heresy III loudspeaker has two sets of binding posts connected by jumpers. Using the dual binding posts, you can bi-amp or bi-wire the speakers. The binding post terminals will accept banana plugs (single/dual), pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and bare wire.

    Placement: The Klipsch Heresy III loudspeaker will perform well in a variety of locations. Corner, floor placement will deliver the highest degree of low bass reinforcement and the pre-installed slant riser base helps to compensate for the Heresy's short stature. This riser may be removed for shelf or cabinet placement. Self-stick rubber pads are supplied for attachment to the bottom of the cabinet to prevent scratching of shelves and hard surfaces. Best results will be achieved using the following genera guidelines.

    • Place on a common wall 6' to 15' apart.
    • Position them equidistant from the wall behind the speakers and equidistant height above the floor (place at ear level if shelf or cabinet mounting the speaker).
    • Angle speakers toward the listener and even with or forward of any adjacent obstructions.
    • Placing them near a corner or wall provides the greatest amount of bass while moving the speakers away from room boundaries reduces bass.
    • Asymmetrical placement of a pair of speakers from adjacent side walls can smooth room-induced bass unevenness.
    Note: Experiment with the above guidelines to suit your taste and to compensate for your room's acoustic characteristics.

    USA Made: The Klipsch Heresy III loudspeaker is built to order and handmade in the USA at Klipsch's manufacturing facility in Arkansas. Please allow up to 8 weeks turnaround time.
