The KĒNTO Carbon represents a ground-up re-thinking by Richard and Nathan Vandersteen. The answer came in a totally new design at the historic Model 5 price point. This speaker brings together the Model 5A carbon tweeter and the patented Carbon/Balsa core midrange from the Model Seven MK II, the Mid-Bass from the Quatro CT, with the all-new built-for-Vandersteen side-firing Counterforce pistonic 9" powered bass drivers. The result is a level of adjustment, unlike any other speaker. Available uniquely in both wood veneer and painted finishes.
