1977 Klipsch Decorator loudspeaker, companion to the one featured in Issue 140. It was a less-expensive version of a finished model. The speakers feature a Richard Modaferri-modified Infinite Slope Crossover.

     

    The backs of the speakers have been cut away to reveal the inner workings, which include a K-77 horn tweeter, K-400 horn midrange, and the Modafferi crossover.
