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.
A three-way design using horn-loaded Titanium diaphragm midrange and high frequency compression drivers.
Direct-radiating 12-inch woofer for powerful low frequencies.
99 dB sensitivity delivers Smooth, dynamic and low distortion sound
Available in a high-quality Black Ash, Cherry, or Walnut wood veneer finish
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.
