This all new model by Clearwave is a joint project with Salk and Clearwave. Clearwave designed the cabinets and crossovers, and Salk did the cabinet work. They turned out beautiful. This is a special promotion offer at $2250US, and factory direct retail will go up after we sell out of the 3 pairs we have in stock right now. This particular pair is done in curly cherry with a nice rich red dye finish.  We also have pairs done in graphite curly maple and brown dyed walnut (walnut pair now SOLD).






Salk does several sealer coats and 1 top coat, so the grain is filled in, and the finish is like a sheet of glass in smoothness. The sheen is a beautiful Satin and very easy to keep looking its best without worrying about every little dust particle.

Not shown and included are black magnetic speaker grills.



The drivers used are by SB Acoustics (dual 5.5" paper drivers) and the tweeter is the Scan Speak Illuminator Air Circ 6600. These are top notch drivers and some of which are found in high end brands like Wilson, Sonus Faber, etc. Because these speakers are factory direct, we can save you literally a few thousand dollars. Retail through traditional retail stores would be about 40-50% higher, so you will see great savings right from the get go. Therefore, we have a no hassle fixed price on these. They are already discounted to a very low price. As I mentioned before, this is a special promotion, and we think these speakers will take off and sell quickly.

The binding posts are done up by Cardas. They are very expensive copper with gold plating. The binding post plates are thick aluminum and engraved with the model and Clearwave Loudspeaker Design name. The crossovers are all point to point wired, and we use high quality stranded Supra wire that does not oxidize like inexpensive copper hookup wire.



The crossovers use the highest quality capacitors that make sense in this speaker. For example, we use Clarity Cap ESA in series in the signal path. The inductors are all thick gauge air core copper, and the circuit has been refined to yield a perfect response curve of +/- 2.5db from 42hz to over 20k with a 90db sensitivity. The port is flared for low noise and is located in the rear of the speaker.

Do a little research about Clearwave speakers, and you'll see all of our happy customers worldwide backed by first class customer support. There's a review at Part Time Audiophile and 6 Moons of some previous models, and that should give you an idea of our quality.   Part Time Audiophile included our Symphonia 7R in his "BEST of 2013."   Contact us today, as we always respond within 24hrs, and usually within a few hours via email.

Lastly, we will give you 10 days to audition the speakers with a money back guarantee (return fees buyer's responsibility). We feel you won't be disappointed.  All that you must do is return them in the condition that they were received. Perfect. The condition of the speakers is new. They have played in my system to break them in for a few hours, so I'll rate them 9/10 to be safe.

Thanks for your interest, and feel free to email Clearwave Loudspeaker Design with any questions you may have about these speakers

The sound is very involving, full bodied, non- fatiguing, and has plenty of detail because of the top tier drivers and crossovers. We know you will enjoy them as much as we do.



Dimensions: 8.5w X 14d X 19h
2" thick front baffle, vertical braced, 1" material throughout every where else. These are heavy and high end cabinets.

For stands we recommend something in the 26"-29" tall range. VTI VSP series looks well built, sturdy and inexpensive (not included).
