Improving a product that has existed since 1977 is no easy task.
When Vandersteen's design team considers revising any model loudspeaker, they must adhere to Richard's mandates that have made Vandersteen a household name amongst audio and music aficionados:
- Every speaker is time and phase-correct
- Every speaker features minimum-area baffles for driver mountings that eliminate mostcabinet edge and grille diffraction anomalies
- Every speaker represents our best effort to offer sonically competitive speaker at its price
- Every speaker provides owners long term reliability Every speaker is 'Made in the USA.'
No speaker better introduces new aficionados to the Vandersteen mandates than the iconic Model 2. As the team thought about how to improve this design again, they knew they had already found a way to potentially enhance the sonic excellence and stay true to the mandates. The Model 3A Signature and Model 1Ci had a cleaner signal path. The external barrier strip connection now connects directly to a re-designed circuit board with upgraded components. By implementing this architecture, the result proved to be the best Model 2 to date.The results are improved clarity and better midrange-timbre-accuracy that now fully realize the advantages of the tri-woven composite midrange.
