Book-Matched Wood Veneer

Klipsch only uses book-matched wood veneers for the Heritage series. The veneer leaves are kept in order and arranged to provide a mirror image, like turning the pages of a book.

Matched Pairs

Heritage Series loudspeaker pairs are grain-matched using wood veneer panels from the same timber. Each cabinet is carefully matched so each speaker in a pair is practically indistinguishable from the other.
