When the La Scala first launched in 1963, Paul W. Klipsch offered it to Arkansas gubernatorial hopeful Winthrop Rockefeller to use as a loudspeaker. Rockerfeller went on to use the speaker on a train car later on in his political career.
A DESIGN MASTERPIECE
The La Scala AL5 mixes contemporary and classic design. The updated design features a silver metallic grille clothe, a vertical-grain match to smooth the lines of the piece, and bookmatched real wood veneer finishes.
ENORMOUS SOUND. ANY SIZE. ANY SPACE.
The AL5 features a newly-designed, highly-efficient tweeter with an extremely high 109 dB sensitivity.
Our 90° X 40° Tractrix horn’s high-frequency performance creates a mammoth sound, bringing the most subtle nuances to the forefront of your listening experience.
THE MINI KLIPCHORN - UPDATED.
Sporting a 1" compression driver, a 2" mid-range driver, and a 15" woofer, the La Scala AL5 yields greater acoustic power. What you hear is the most dynamic sound possible for whatever music matches your mood!
“THIS SPEAKER WILL NOT DISAPPOINT"
“When you hook this speaker up, if you like to listen to live music and want to truly experience the music, this speaker will NOT disappoint,” Klipsch Principal Engineer Roy Delgado says, "It’s as close as you can get to a concert experience without having to leave your house or pay for premium parking."
The La Scala features a neodymium tweeter with a 1” polyimide diaphragm and
copper clad aluminum voice coil. This lightweight diaphragm assembly and high
strength magnet structure creates the tweeter’s high 105dB sensitivity and makes it the most efficient consumer tweeter in the market. When coupled to a 90° x 40° Tractrix® horn, the tweeter sets new levels of performance for dynamic range and output.
According to Paul W. Klipsch, “the midrange is where we live” and is one of the
most critical parts in any loudspeaker design. The La Scala’s midrange utilizes
a 2” compression driver mated to a high efficiency exponential horn that maximizes the system’s power and performance. As a result, less distortion is
produced by the amplifier and by the loudspeaker. That means clarity, accuracy
and remarkable tonal definition.
BI-AMP INPUT PANEL AND BINDING POSTS
The La Scala’s premium, aluminum input panel accommodates large, high-quality speaker cables. Strong, versatile and quality binding posts provide the capability for bi-wiring or bi-amping. The quality continues with AudioQuest Type 4 with Star-Quad Geometry internal wiring featuring carbon-loaded insulation, nitrogen-injected PE and solid long-grain copper conductors.
BOOK-MATCHED WOOD VENEER
Klipsch only uses book-matched wood veneers for the Heritage series. The
veneer leaves are kept in order as they are delicately sliced from the timber and
precisely arranged to provide a mirror image at the splice joint — like turning
the pages of a book. This gives each speaker an aesthetically appealing and
consistent appearance that is treasured more than any other cut of wood veneer
The LF and HF cabinets are also matched for continuous grain and color from top to bottom.
Each pair of Heritage series loudspeakers is grain-matched, using wood veneer
panels that come from the same timber. Each cabinet is carefully matched so
that each speaker in the pair is practically indistinguishable from the other.
The speakers move seamlessly together through the factory, and each finished
product is inspected and labeled with sequential serial numbers, ensuring that
your Heritage series speaker leaves the factory as a meticulously crafted set.
BUILT TO LAST
While each and every component of the La Scala is built to last, Klipsch has
always recognized the unique and critical role of a loudspeaker’s cabinet in the
sound reproduction process. From the craftsmen in Hope, AR to the engineers in
Indianapolis, Klipsch has always put an extraordinary emphasis on cabinet design.
The La Scala II enclosure is assembled using only the highest-grade adhesives
and fasteners. This is a speaker you will hand down from generation to generation.
