Vandersteen Audio has done its best to photograph these wood finishes on each product page, but please know that while the woods we receive from our vendors are unfailingly high in quality, no two pieces of wood are ever exactly alike. This is dictated by nature. We promise that your speakers will look gorgeous, but not that they will precisely match the photos you see on our website or on our dealers’ in-store demo speakers.

The VCC- 5 is a three-way design based on the VCC- 1, but with the addition of two (2) 6.5-inch cast-basket woofers. These woofers are internally mounted and cross over at 150Hz to the coaxial system, which has a crossover frequency of 3500Hz. A true “triaxial” output is achieved by channeling bass around the midrange-tweeter coaxial array. This eliminates the severe comb filter lobing produced by horizontally displaced drivers. The result is reference-level performance, both in measurement and sound, regardless of off-axis perspective above, below or to the right or left of the speaker. While not an easy design goal to meet, we feel this property is mandatory for a proper center speaker and it is found in all of our VCC’s. The VCC- 5 Reference preserves the coherence of the VCC-1 Signature and VCC-2 while broadening frequency extension, lowering distortion and increasing power handling.
