KLH Cambridge Floorstanding Speaker Pair
(2) Cambridge 2-Way Floorstanding Speakers (One Pair)
One of the most hallowed nameplates in the history of audio, KLH is back with a full line of newly-designed speakers – and a rededication to the company’s original mission to deliver an audiophile experience affordable for all. The Cambridge, KLH’s smallest floorstanding speaker, embodies that goal. Designed and engineered in Indiana, the Cambridge features custom-built low/midrange drivers of durable and sonically superior Kevlar, with powerful magnets and cast aluminum baskets. The tweeter is domed anodized aluminum, the wiring is braided tinsel, and the high-quality crossover circuitry ensures smooth transitions among the drivers. Dense MDF internal chambers are braced for ultra-low resonance. The whole package is wrapped in real wood veneers – black oak and American walnut – and brushed-aluminum speaker faceplates that look 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 Cambridge, in a modest footprint and at a true value price, turns your listening room into a convincing concert hall or cinema.

Two-Way Floorstanding Loudspeaker
The KLH Cambridge is a two-way floorstanding loudspeaker featuring a high performance 1" Anodized Aluminum tweeter with a linear response faceplate and two 5.25" Woven Kevlar mid/bass drivers with butyl rubber surrounds and powder-coated die-cast aluminum baskets. There are braided tinsel leads on all drivers. A custom multi-element crossover with high grade components ensure smooth and natural transition between drivers.
Bass Reflex MDF Enclosure
The KLH Cambridge floorstanding loudspeaker utilizes a bass reflex enclosure with a rear-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass response. The speaker cabinet features 3/4" MDF construction with custom designed internal low resonance driver chambers and bracing optimized through finite element analysis. The enclosure also has a brushed aluminum tweeter faceplate and driver fascia, as well as an integrated MDF plinth (base). The MDF enclosure is finished in a real wood veneer (choose between a black oak or american walnut finish).
Dual Binding Post Terminals
The KLH Cambridge floorstanding loudspeaker has two sets nickel-plated binding posts terminals connected by jumpers (fasteners). The binding post terminals that will accept bare wire (up 12AWG), pin-connectors, spade-lugs, and banana plugs (single only). A plastic cap must be removed from each binding post terminal to use banana plugs. Using the dual binding posts, you can bi-amp or bi-wire the speakers.
Bi-Wiring:Bi-wiring can provide noticeable improvements in the overall transparency of your loudspeakers. Run separate speaker wires to the low & high frequency drivers from a single amplifier (the upper set of binding posts are for the high frequency driver; the lower set of binding posts are for the low frequency driver).
Bi-Amping:Bi-amping allows you to use separate amplifiers for the high & low frequency sections of your loudspeaker for greater dynamic range & lower distortion. We recommend that your separate amplifiers have identical gain to preserve the speaker's voicing balance.
Applications & Placement
The KLH Cambridge floorstanding loudspeaker can be used in a stereo or home theater application.
- Placement of the speaker is a personal preference, but it is recommended that a pair of speakers be placed at least 6' apart whether they are being used for a stereo application, or as the main left and right channels for a home theater.
- For best imaging and separation, listening distance from the speakers should be approximately 1.5x the distance the speakers are apart from each other.
- Also, be sure that the speaker is placed at least 12" away from any wall. Further adjustments can be made to optimize your listening experience.
Rubber or Spike Feet
The included rubber feet are used for solid flooring such as wood, tile, and concrete. The included chrome-plated spikes are used for carpeted flooring. If you prefer to use the spikes on your solid flooring, you can install the included protective discs under the spikes to protect your floor. Both types of feet screw into the bottom of the speaker's integrated MDF plinth (base) and are adjustable to level the speaker on uneven flooring.
