3-way, 10” Acoustic Suspension Loudspeaker

The legendary KLH Model Five was first introduced in 1968 and served as the heart
and soul of KLH’s success throughout the late 1960’s and 1970’s. At its core was the
acoustic suspension design that dominated the loudspeaker industry for decades
and made the Model Five one of the best-selling loudspeakers of its era. In 2021,
KLH re-introduced the Model Five; building on the original acoustic suspension
design and using the most advanced loudspeaker technology available today.
