KLH Kendall Floorstanding Loudspeaker Pair Overview

One of the most hallowed nameplates in the history of home audio, KLH is back with a full line of new-design speakers – and a rededication to the company’s original mission to deliver an affordable audiophile experience to all. The Kendall 3-way tower speaker, the flagship of the new line, embodies that goal. The Kendall features custom designed drivers of durable and sonically superior Kevlar and anodized aluminum, with oversized magnets, braided tinsel leads and high-quality crossover circuitry to ensure smooth transitions among the speakers. Solid, rigid MDF internal driver chambers are braced for ultra-low resonance. The whole package is finished in real wood veneers – black oak and American walnut – and brushed-aluminum speaker faceplates that look equally elegant with or without the seamless magnetic grille attached. The new KLH is so confident, the company offers an unheard-of 10 year warranty. But just as in the original KLH, it’s all about the sound, and the Kendall transports you convincingly to concert hall or cinema at a fraction of the cost of most high-end speakers. World Wide Stereo is proud to be an inaugural dealer for the new KLH speaker line.

From the heartland, from the heart

The new KLH, located in the USA’s heartland – Noblesville, Indiana – pays homage to the brand by building incredible value into every speaker. The Kendall starts with superior materials – woven Kevlar cones with die-cast aluminum baskets, anodized aluminum domes, brushed aluminum faceplates, MDF cabinetry with real wood veneers, nickel-plated binding posts, top-quality crossover components – and adds in decades of engineering and design experience, to deliver a speaker that looks as good as it sounds, and sounds better than far more expensive competitors.

Tough, solid drivers…

Each Kendall tower begins with a pair of 6-1/2-inch Kevlar woofers, for strength and stiffness, suspended via flexible, durable butyl rubber in powder-coated, die-cast aluminum baskets with oversized magnets. A 5-1/4 inch midrange driver is similarly rugged. And the 1-inch dome tweeter is formed of anodized aluminum for crystal clarity, linear response and maximum dispersion.

…Working in perfect harmony

The individual drivers are controlled by custom crossover circuitry, built with the highest-grade components, and tied together with braided tinsel wiring, all for minimal interference among the drivers, and for maximum extension. Together, they reach deep down to 25Hz, and up beyond hearing to 23kHz, with flat frequency response (+/- 3dB) and wide soundstage.

Tuned to the room

The Kendall includes a rear bass port that can be tuned to reduce the airflow and optimize the bass response when the speakers are placed adjacent to the walls.

Got extra channels?

The nickel-plated binding posts handle your choice of speaker wire connections (banana plugs, spade lugs, posts, bare wire). And if your amp or surround receiver has a couple channels to spare, consider bi-amping the Kendalls (connections supplied to separately power the lows and highs) for ultra-clean sonic reproduction. A sturdy MDF plinth and a variety of mounting feet are included, from rubber (for bare floor) to spikes (carpeting), for optimum decoupling from the room surface.

Attractive speakers and excellent sound
These speakers sound as good as some costing twice as much. And they fit into our decor nicely.

I love bumpin’ my Kendalls!
I can’t describe how impressed I am with my KLH Kendall speakers. I’m running them off of a Bluesound Powernode (which is awesome as well). The PowerNode is only 60 watts per channel, but that’s plenty to get an awesome thump from these speakers. A few things that drew me to them was the team working to develop the KLH line, the great price point, and most importantly, the awesome sound they produce. I demoed these in store along with some Focals, B&Ws, and Klipsch, and while each one of those speakers is awesome sounding, and would make for a great pair of speakers to own, the value I saw in he KLH couldn’t be touched. When I got them home, I think the sounded even better. This is my first set of high-quality speakers, and I’m in love. While I am really impressed with the bass they produce, I think I’ll eventually add a sub to really shake the room and allow the Kendall’s to hit the mids and highs even better and let the sub handle all the lows. The look of them is great and they’re finished really nicely. I don’t think you’d be disappointed if you’re considering a pair.

Great Looks and Sound!
I purchased my Kendalls from World Wide Stereo in April of 2019. They arrived in a week and they were well packaged. The first thing I noticed was how beautiful the real wood veneer is! Beauty is only skin deep, so they say, so the proof was in the listening. These speakers have a full rich sound that make vocals soar. The mid-range purity is impressive. The sound stage is wide and deep. Imaging is very clear and sharp. The bass is deep and not muddy at all. Bass string plucks are well defined and tight. I highly recommend giving these a try. You'll be glad you did!

I have a pair of B&W 703s, original owner of 17 yrs. now, would I regret buying these? Listening to Miles Davis currently, Tribe Called Quest is probably on the horizon and maybe some Minutemen thrown in for good measure....ohhhh, too bad Esborn Svensson Trio! Regardless, the freq range appeals to me. Tell me this speaker punches way, way above its weight....
A shopper on May 16, 2020
  Thanks for your question. It is very difficult to subjectively compare these 2 fine speakers. The legacy 703 is a B&W classic design with the tweeter on top, 3 way, Kevlar low frequency drivers. The Kendalls feature equally fine engineering and drivers. They are 6 dB more efficient and will likely sound louder before being overdriven. Its frequency response is nearly equal to the 703s. We cant say that it punches way above its weight but it is arguably one of the best models within its price range that we offer.
