Waaay back in April, Klipsch revived two classic speaker models in celebration of their 70th anniversary. The Heresy Heritage and Klipschorn speakers were re-born at Klipsch’s Hope, AR facility.

 

Klipsch isn’t finished yet. This month they’re releasing two more legacy speakers to celebrate their 70th. The Cornwall, which was originally released in 1959, is expected to retail for $2,200. The La Scala, which was released in 1963, is slated to cost about $4,000.  Each speaker is made to order and feature a silver luster grille cloth partnered with a signed 70th Anniversary plaque identifying its number in the series. An Australian walnut wood veneer is used to encase each speaker.

The new Cornwall features a 3-way design with horn-loaded compression drivers for treble and midrange. A beefy 15″ woofer is responsible for handling low frequencies. The Cornwall was the first speaker from Klispch that was designed to be placed in a corner or wall. Hence the name “Cornwall”.

 

The La Scala which was born in 1963, was designed to provide a Klipschorn-like performance with a smaller cabinet. The Scala is a fully horn-loaded, 3-way system with a folded-horn 15″ woofer, 2″ midrange and a 1″ tweeter.

 

Both the Cornwall and the La Scala are available in three finish options: Black Ash, Cherry, and Walnut. Anyone interested in sampling these classics should visit Klipsch’s web site.
