Way back in 1978, Paul W. Klipsch hired Jim Hunter as a transducer engineer in Hope, Arkansas. Never one to stay still, Hunter has since served as a design engineer, production engineer, engineering manager, director of design engineering, VP of design engineering and company historian who is also in charge of The Klipsch Museum of Audio History.
His audio career began in 1974, working for the Rola Company, an OEM driver manufacturing company. He and PWK co-authored U.S. Patent #4,387,786, an anechoic chamber featuring a multi-functional revolving door. Throughout his career at Klipsch, Hunter has been a key contributor to more than 150 Klipsch loudspeakers sold in specialty audio retail stores around the world.
Hunter has been a member of the Audio Engineering Society since 1979 and a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers since 1974. To put it simply - when Jim speaks, you’ll want to listen.
