Key Features:

Carbon Fiber Tweeter

  • High-Frequency Excellence: The Kento Carbon inherits the Model 5A's exceptional 1-inch carbon fiber tweeter, renowned for its detailed and airy reproduction of high frequencies.


Patented Perfect Piston™ Midrange

  • Unmatched Clarity: Sourced from the Model Seven MK II, this 4.5-inch midrange driver utilizes a unique carbon fiber and balsa wood construction for unmatched linearity and clarity in the critical midrange region.


All-New Side-Firing Bass Drivers

  • Powerful Bass: Dual 9-inch aluminum drivers with long-throw motor assemblies are built-in and strategically side-fired for exceptional bass extension and powerful low-frequency reproduction. This innovative design allows for room-specific adjustments to optimize bass integration.


Adjustable Powered Subwoofer

  • Seamless Integration: A built-in 400-watt linear amplifier powers the subwoofers, ensuring seamless integration with the midrange and treble drivers. This allows for precise adjustments to tailor the bass response to your listening environment.


First-Order Crossovers

  • Natural Sound: Vandersteen utilizes simple yet effective first-order crossovers that minimize signal coloration and preserve the natural character of the music.

By incorporating premium components from their flagship speakers, they have created a loudspeaker that delivers performance previously unheard of in this price range. Early measurements and listening sessions suggest a sonic experience remarkably close to the Model Seven MK II, a testament to the Kento Carbon's capabilities.
