Model Five acoustic suspension speakers are known as one of the finest and most sought-after speakers for audiophiles, both new and seasoned.  Our updated version of this classic speaker has real wood veneers, cast aluminum baskets, and uses acoustic suspension design principles made famous by founder Henry Kloss.

The KLH Model Five vintage speaker is offered in three gorgeous finishes (English Walnut, West African Mahogany, and Nordic Noir), allowing the loudspeaker to blend with all home décor. The English Walnut Model Five comes with a beautiful Stone Wash Linen grille cloth that magnifies the rich finish of the real wood veneers. Meanwhile, our West African Mahogany finish is complemented by an Old-World Linen grille cloth that will stop you in your tracks. And lastly, the Nordic Noir finish is shipped wearing the lovely Medici Grey Linen grille cloth. Want the option of pairing any grille cloth with the finish of your choosing? Don’t worry- you can purchase each style separately. Riser base and grilles included with speaker purchase.

An iconic speaker, reborn

Henry Kloss and KLH introduced their original Model Five back in 1968, and it became a popular and broadly recognizable speaker that helped propel the company’s success. This new version takes advantage of modern driver technology, but houses it in a retro-styled, acoustic suspension (sealed) cabinet that’s similar to that of the original. And here’s a rare touch for 2021, also from the original 1968 version — a passive sound-shaping switch that lets you tailor the speaker’s output to your room’s acoustics.

An elegant speaker with included stand

The KLH Model Five is a paragon of careful design — inside and out. Its 10″ woofer and 4″ midrange are supported internally by die-cast aluminum frames, and the 1″ tweeter features a machined aluminum faceplate. High-quality inductors, capacitors and crossovers ensure that the three drivers perform with a high degree of harmony and accuracy. The sturdy cabinet is constructed of 3/4″-thick MDF with an elegant, genuine wood veneer finish.

A magnetically attached linen grille is included, as is a custom steel riser that imparts a gentle 5-degree upward tilt. Optional custom linen grilles in alternate cloth colors are available.

The KLH name lives on

Henry Kloss and his partners founded KLH in Cambridge, Massachusetts back in the ’50s. Kloss changed the audio industry with innovations like the acoustic suspension loudspeaker, the first-ever full-range electrostatic speaker, and the first high-selectivity table radio.

Today, KLH is headquartered in Noblesville, Indiana. The company’s new speaker lineup represents a fresh take on that rich and varied KLH legacy.
