Klipsch Group, Inc. (KGI) is the holding company for four of the most respected brands in the audio industry—Klipsch (established 1946), Jamo (established 1968), Mirage (established 1977) and Energy (established 1973). CEO Paul Jacobs continues to pioneer company-first, Klipsch-branded sound solutions, all while remaining true to the precedent set forth by founder and audio pioneer Paul W. Klipsch beginning in 1946. In 2005 and 2006, KGI acquired the Denmark-based Jamo and Canadian-based Mirage and Energy brands respectively. Since then, the Klipsch Group has become a global technology powerhouse, selling a wide variety of premium sound solutions, including headphones, iPod speakers, home theater systems, in-wall and in-ceiling designs and professional cinema systems. In 2011, KGI was purchased and became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Audiovox Corporation (NASDAQ: VOXX).
