Product Description

Vandersteen Model 5A Carbon Full-Range Powered-Bass Speaker (pair)

Please note the "Standard" Finish for this Loudspeaker is "Walnut". Please read full description below carefully:

Standard wood finishes are no additional charge. Speaker finishes, except for Walnut, vary in availability practically daily. Please contact Sound Reference Melbourne, who will work with Vandersteen Audio to determine up-to-the-minute market availability on your desired wood finish and provide an accurate ETA quote.

Vandersteen Audio has done its best to photograph these wood finishes on each product page and in each sample, but please know that while the woods we receive from our vendors are unfailingly high in quality, no two pieces of wood are ever exactly alike. This is dictated by nature. We promise that your speakers will look gorgeous, but not that they will precisely match the photos you see on our website or on our dealers’ in-store demo speakers.

Choosing a non standard finish might result in an extended wait time before delivery - for more information contact us on 03 9495 6500


"The Vandersteen 5A Carbon is one of the best speakers I have heard ... I'm excited enough about the 5A Carbons to make them my new reference speakers ..." 
- Anthony H. Cordesman, The Absolute Sound


Vandersteen Audio’s Model 5A Carbon is the latest evolution of the classic Model 5 and the ultra-competitive little brother to the flagship Model Seven. The Models 5 and 5A reigned at the top of the Vandersteen line for over a decade, exemplifying many of Richard Vandersteen’s most radically effective design principles. The 5 Series have always been time- and phase-correct speakers that push the technological edge, with extreme-performance features that include an ultra-rigid, constrained-layer head section with Minimum-Baffle construction, a 400-watt powered-bass section with 11-band room EQ, passive high-pass filters and a highly advanced, completely proprietary 12” push-pull subwoofer driver.

What separates the 5A Carbon from previous iterations of the 5 Series are its carbon-fiber midrange and tweeter drivers, which are descended directly from the patented Perfect-Piston drivers developed for and used in the flagship Model Seven. These carbon drivers are the result of an unprecedented 10-year research & development effort by Richard Vandersteen. While the Perfect-Piston midrange and tweeter used in the flagship Model Seven are the fully embodied ideal of Vandersteen’s carbon driver technology, the Model 5A Carbon is a paragon of high-frequency air and extension, midrange openness and resolution, and the kind of tight, tuneful deep bass that only a powered-bass speaker with integral room EQ can provide. The Model 5A Carbon is Richard Vanderteen’s Dimensional Purity concept taken to the extreme!
