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 MOST VERSATILE KLIPSCH CREATION
Originally designed for professional use, the Klipsch La Scala has proven itself as an
outstanding choice for the audiophile as well. The La Scala brings the most subtle
musical details to life, always delivering the legendary Klipsch sound with clarity and
ease. On a single watt, it generates 105 decibels of sound pressure, which means that
the La Scala will delight the listener even while using the most modest amplifier power.
The La Scala loudspeaker is built to rigid Klipsch standards — the toughest in the
industry! Remember great sound? We do, too. The Klipsch La Scala enclosure is
still made in the USA, by proud craftsmen in Hope, Arkansas. Just like Paul W.
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
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, nitrogeninjected 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
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 enclosure is assembled using only the highest-grade adhesives and
fasteners. This is a speaker you will hand down from generation to generation.
