Product Details

Klipsch Heritage Series Heresy III Cherry Floorstanding Speaker - HERESYIIICHERRY

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 center channel speaker to accompany the Klipschorn® in three-speaker stereo arrays.

First introduced in 1957, the Heresy, a three-way design, started out as a compact center channel speaker to accompany the Klipschorn® in three-speaker stereo arrays. In 1985, we 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, bi-wire network and a titanium diaphragm tweeter with a larger magnet assembly. The midrange compression driver also features a new titanium diaphragm.

All of these changes result in improved tonal balance and increased output. In fact the Heresy III is three decibels louder (96 to 99dB), improving on its already high sensitivity.

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. Because of its relatively "compact" size, this model offers the greatest degree of placement flexibility in the Heritage Series line.

  • Direct-radiating 12-inch woofer for powerful low frequencies.

Features:

  • A Little Heresy Is Good For The Soul
    Introducing the pound-for-pound champion of the world. Whether it's for your burgeoning vinyl collection, home theater or whatever. Nothing rocks harder. Period.
  • Made In Usa. Made To Rock.
    Proudly handcrafted in Hope, Arkansas for over 50 years, the Klipsch Heresy III speaker is a testament to the quality Klipsch demands from each and every of its audio products. Here's to 50 more years of Heresy.
  • They Said He Couldn't But He Did It Anyway
    When Paul W. Klipsch was developing a smaller speaker for use between two Klipschhorns, an acquaintance declared that he couldn't possibly introduce it to the public because it was in direct violation of the corner horn principles, and amounted to acoustic heresy.
    "The hell I can't," Mr. Klipsch said. "And that's exactly what I'm going to call it!"
    A year later the Klipsch Heresy loudspeaker was introduced and, ironically, it became a bestseller in the church sound reinforcement market.
  • Today's Heresy
    In 1985, we 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.
    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.
