Kanto just introduced its YU Passive 5.25” and YU Passive 4” speakers, two compact bookshelf loudspeakers that offer high-performance sound and outstanding value.

The YU Passive 5.25″ ($199 per pair) features a 5.25-inch Kevlar woofer and 1-inch silk dome tweeter, and the YU Passive 4″ ($159 per pair) has a 4-inch woofer and 1-inch silk-dome tweeter. Both models are ideal for use as desktop speakers with a DAC/amplifier or amp, as part of a compact high-quality stereo music or TV sound system, or as the rear, side or height channels in a home theater setup.

Measuring just 10.7 inches high by 6.9 inches wide by 8.1 inches deep (YU Passive 5.25″) and 8.7 inches high by 5.5 inches wide by 7.5 inches deep (YU Passive 4″), both speakers utilize the same high-quality drivers as the acclaimed Kanto YU6 and YU4 active speakers to deliver clear, powerful sound with the ability to create a wide soundfield with precise imaging. The YU Passive 5.25″ and YU Passive 4″ offer a smooth, natural tonal balance that complements any type of music listening. They’re available in black or white vinyl wrap to complement any home, office or desk setup.

“The YU Passive 5.25″ and YU Passive 4″ are Kanto’s return to the passive speaker segment, and were designed to offer high-quality sound at attractive price points,” said Jason Zavarella, Kanto Product Manager. “They’re ideal for listeners in small to medium-sized rooms, for use in home theater systems, or as an affordable speaker upgrade.”

The YU Passive 5.25″ and YU Passive 4″ cabinets are constructed from acoustic-grade MDF to eliminate unwanted internal resonances for detailed and uncolored sound. Both models feature knurled 5-way speaker binding posts that enable easy connectivity, and include standard 1/4″-20 mounting holes for securing the speakers to optional Kanto floorstanding or desktop speaker stands.

Price & Availability

The Kanto YU Passive 5.25″ and YU Passive 4″ speakers are currently available in black and will be available in white in June 2021. They carry a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
