KLH Quincy 3-Way Floorstanding Loudspeaker Overview
One of the most hallowed nameplates in the history of home audio, KLH is back with a full line of newly design speakers – and a rededication to the company’s original mission to make the audiophile experience affordable for all. The mid-line Quincy 3-way tower speaker embodies that goal. The Quincy features custom-built woofer and midrange drivers of durable and sonically superior Kevlar, with powerful magnets and cast aluminum baskets. The whole package is wrapped in real wood veneers – black oak or American walnut – with brushed-aluminum speaker faceplates that look elegant with or without the seamless magnetic grille attached. The new KLH is so confident that you’ll enjoy these speakers for years to come, the company offers an unheard-of 10-year warranty. World Wide is proud to be an inaugural dealer for the new KLH speaker line.

From the heartland, from the heart
The new KLH, located in the USA’s heartland – Noblesville, Indiana – pays homage to the brand by building incredible value into every speaker. The Quincy starts with superior materials – woven Kevlar cones with die-cast aluminum baskets, anodized aluminum domes, brushed aluminum faceplates, MDF cabinetry with real wood veneers, nickel-plated binding posts, top-quality crossover components – and adds in decades of engineering and design experience, to deliver a speaker that looks as good as it sounds, and sounds better than far more expensive competitors.
Tough, solid drivers…
Each Quincy sports a 6-1/2-inch Kevlar woofer for strength and stiffness, suspended via flexible, durable butyl rubber, in a powder-coated, die-cast aluminum basket with oversized magnet. A 5-1/4 inch midrange driver is similarly rugged. And the 1-inch dome tweeter is formed of anodized aluminum for crystal clarity, linear response and maximum dispersion.
…Working in perfect harmony
The individual drivers are controlled by custom crossover circuitry, built with the highest-grade components, and connected with braided tinsel wiring, all for smooth transitions among the drivers with maximum extension. The Quincy reaches deep down to 27Hz, and up beyond hearing to 23kHz, with flat frequency response (+/- 3dB) and convincingly wide soundstage.
Got extra channels?
Nickel-plated binding posts handle multiple types of speaker connections, from bare wire to banana plugs. And, if your amp or surround receiver has a couple channels to spare, consider bi-amping the Quincys (connections are supplied to separately power the lows and highs) for ultra-clean reproduction. The black satin base has a variety of installation feet, from rubber for bare floor to spikes for carpeting, for optimum decoupling from the floor’s surface.
Looks great covered or uncovered
The cabinet is finished in genuine wood veneers (choice of black oak or walnut). And the magnetic clasps for the grille are hidden, so if you prefer your speaker systems naked, the Quincy’s fully finished front panel with brushed aluminum speaker faceplates will happily oblige any exhibitionist tendencies.
Pairs perfectly with…
Build your whole home theater with KLH: Add the Story Center Channel Speaker, and a pair or more of the Beacon Surrounds, and enjoy the show. In fact, the entire KLH line shares a sonic signature, so you can confidently mix and match a system that suits your needs. And you always can count on World Wide Stereo’s 60-day guarantee.
A brief history of sound
Back in the 1950s and early ‘60s, a band of pioneering engineers revolutionized the audio world and led the golden age of high fidelity. Among them, possibly the most revered and warmly remembered is Henry Kloss, the K of KLH. An inveterate tinkerer and serial entrepreneur, he started some of the most influential companies of the era and beyond, from AR and Advent to Cambridge Soundworks and Tivoli Audio. Kloss is credited with introducing influential innovations including full-range bookshelf speakers, projection TV and tape recorders with Dolby noise reduction. To honor his memory and dedication to the highest fidelity (whether in huge electrostatic speakers or tiny table radios), the revamped KLH has named its new speaker line for streets on and around Kloss’ beloved Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus in Cambridge, Mass.
