LA SCALA II
70TH ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION
CELEBRATING 70 LEGENDARY YEARS
In celebration of the 70th anniversary of Klipsch, exclusive limited edition La
Scala II speakers are being manufactured in exotic Australian Walnut wood
veneer. Australian Walnut (also known as Queensland Walnut) is grown in the
coastal tablelands of North Queensland, Australia. The species varies in color, but
is usually a pale golden hue highly contrasted with darker streaks of chocolate
brown, grey, black, or even pink. Australian Walnut grain is moderately close and
even and sometimes wavy, resulting in a wide variety of figure effects.
DESIGNED AND MADE IN THE USA
USING DOMESTIC AND IMPORTED COMPONENTS
The La Scala II loudspeaker is built to rigid Klipsch standards — the toughest in the
industry! Remember great sound? We do, too. The Klipsch La Scala II enclosure
is still made in the USA, by proud craftsmen in Hope, Arkansas. Just like Paul W.
Klipsch (PWK) intended.

When the La Scala first launched in 1963, audio pioneer Paul W. Klipsch made it for
Arkansas gubernatorial candidate Winthrop Rockefeller to use as a public address
speaker. Because some considered it a “portable” and more affordable version of
the revolutionary Klipschorn®, the La Scala found success beyond the campaign.
The fully horn-loaded, three-way La Scala sounded so good that people wanted to
put it in their living rooms.

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.

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.
ENCLOSURE MATERIAL
Birch plywood and MDF
Australian Walnut
FINISH
Note: Australian Walnut, like most exotic hardwoods, will
vary dramatically in color and grain pattern. This is due to
the normal seasonal or geographical differences where the
trees are harvested.

The 70th Anniversary La Scala II is limited to a production run of 70 pairs
of speakers. Each speaker features a small plaque identifying its numbered

NEW NAMEPLATE
Each pair of La Scalas feature vintage “script” style nameplates celebrating the
company’s 70th anniversary.
NEW VINTAGE GRILLE
A unique silver luster grille cloth complements the beautiful Australian Walnut
wood veneer.
BOOK-MATCHED WOOD VENEER
A LIFETIME INVESTMENT
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, IN, 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 for generations.
