Kanto Introduces YU Passive Speakers for Home Theater Setup

up6bmainKanto introduced the YU Passive 5.25” and YU Passive 4” speakers. The YU Passive 5.25″ (MAP: $199 per pair) features a 5.25-inch Kevlar woofer and 1-inch silk dome tweeter, and the YU Passive 4” (MAP: $159 per pair) has a 4-inch woofer and 1-inch silk-dome tweeter. Both models are ideal for use as desktop speakers with a DAC/amplifier or amp. They can also be used as part of a compact, high-quality stereo music or TV sound system, or as the rear, side or height channels in a home theater setup. The speakers will be available in June of 2021.

The YU Passive 5.25″ measures at 10.7 inches high, 6.9 inches wide and 8.1 inches deep. The YU Passive 4″ measures at 8.7 inches high, 5.5 inches wide and 7.5 inches deep. Both speakers utilize the same high-quality drivers as the acclaimed Kanto YU6 and YU4 active speakers to deliver clear, powerful sound with the ability to create a wide sound field with precise imaging. The YU Passive 5.25″ and YU Passive 4″ offer a smooth, natural tonal balance that complements any type of music listening. They’re available in black or white vinyl wrap.

The YU Passive 5.25″ and YU Passive 4″ cabinets are constructed from acoustic-grade MDF to eliminate unwanted internal resonances for detailed and uncolored sound. Both models feature knurled five-way speaker binding posts that enable easy connectivity and include standard 1/4″-20 mounting holes for securing the speakers to optional Kanto floor standing or desktop speaker stands.
