Vandersteen

Vandersteen Audio always has been and always will be a technology company. Vandersteen speakers for decades were built around Richard Vandersteen’s patented reflection-free aerodynamic midrange drivers, which remain paragons of low-distortion musicality. Minimal-baffle cabinets, bi-wiring, resonance-reducing spiked feet, battery-biased crossovers, high-pass-filtered powered subwoofers and powered-bass speakers with built-in room EQ are just some of the innovations that originated with Vandersteen Audio’s speaker products.

Vandersteen Audio’s speaker designs today are built around the most advanced dynamic drivers ever conceived, the patented Perfect-Piston™ drivers featured exclusively in Vandersteen Audio’s Model Seven Extreme and Model Kento Carbon speakers. Richard Vandersteen spent 10 years developing these Perfect Piston drivers, which utilize a totally unique carbon-fiber/balsa wood/carbon-fiber sandwich that provides perfectly pistonic driver performance and accuracy without the sonic colorations inherent in metal and ceramic drivers.

The Model 3A Signature is a classic Vandersteen in being an extreme-performance hot rod in a brown paper bag.

Sub Three

 

The SUB THREE builds on the years of technology featured in the 2WQ but with increased performance with a power factor correct switch mode power supply to a more powerful 325-watt internal amplifier and an upgrade from stamped steel to cast aluminum baskets on the three 8-inch drivers. For the first time at this price, the SUB THREE also incorporates one of Vandersteen's most innovative and enduring technologies- 11-band room EQ for perfect bass in virtually any room. This technology originated with Vandersteen's Model 5 and continues in the KÄ’NTO, Quatro, the flagship Model Seven, and reference SUB NINE powered subwoofers. Over time, this crucial EQ technology has been employed in Vandersteen's powered 5A and Model 5A Carbon, but before the SUB THREE, the least expensive path to Vandersteen room EQ was the Quatro Wood CT. Vandersteen's legendary powered bass with room EQ is now more accessible than ever, and is in many non-Vandersteen setups as well.
