Klipsch La Scala II Loudspeaker (each)

Upscale Audio has La Scala II in stock now in all finishes!

 

 

The La Scala II's midrange and treble were exceptionaly smooth. I experienced no listening fatigue even when using a solid state amp. As for serious horn-loaded colorations, you know, the cupped hand sort of stuff, I didn't hear any. These speakers could image. Maybe that's the last thing you expect from a big-box loudspeaker. The soundstage was spacious, the performance precisely placed, the imaging was excellent, side to side, front to back, up and down. THe La Scala's real pay-off is its high sensitivity. You don't have to pour money into heroic amplification.You can use a flea-watt amp if you like. You could even use a headphone amp—I did.

The La Scala II delivers the same sparkling highs, extreme output and unsurpassed low distortion bass response as the original design. It also continues to utilize the same horn-loaded drivers as the Klipschorn, making it highly efficient and able to produce high volumes with undetectable distortion.

Features:

  • Fully horn-loaded, 3-way system with a folded-horn 15" woofer, 2" midrange and 1" tweeter compression drivers
  • Capable of extreme output levels with ultra low distortion and astonishing dynamic range
  • Available in a high-quality Black Ash, Cherry, or Walnut wood veneer finish
  • Designed & Assembled in the USA

Compared to the original, the La Scala II includes a grille to cover the mid and high frequency horns. The bass horn cabinet walls are now constructed of 1-inch thick MDF rather than ¾-inch plywood to offer more support, decrease resonance and deliver cleaner bass response.

The La Scala II is available in a variety of high-quality wood veneer finishes, including cherry, walnut and black ash.

Price above is for a single speaker.
