The Vandersteen VSM-1 is an advanced surface-mount loudspeaker optimized for the unique requirements of the rear channel positions in a multi-channel audio/video system. It was developed and refined by twenty years of intensive research into loudspeaker design and multiple speaker integration. Its innovative engineering, superior components and quality construction provide true high-fidelity performance.
When wall mounted in a typical living room, VSM-1s provide a superb timbre and voice match to Vandersteen center and floor standing speakers. They maintain this essential match regardless of their placement or proximity to the listeners. Their immunity to multi-driver interference insures consistent performance through the listening environment.
Vandersteen VSM-1 Features
Innovative crossover circuitry insures safe handling of the high-power, low-frequency information.
Superb main music or theater speaker for domestic situations where larger speakers are not practical.
Mate with one or more Vandersteen subwoofers for truly full-range performance.
Coaxial driver uses a rigid, acoustically inert cast-metal basket to improve cone movement accuracy and reduce sympathetic resonances.
1-inch alloy dome tweeter is ferrofluid cooled to increase power handling and critically damped for smooth response.
Transient-perfect, first-order crossover with high-quality film capacitors in the signal path.
Custom high-purity wire for maximum signal transfer.
Unique mounting system uses the speaker's own mass to hold it tight against the wall for proper coupling and stability.
