Power and Performance
The Beautifully Balanced S/3 SHO


S/3 SHO (Super High Output) derives from the flagship S/5 SHO offering a more compact footprint while retaining much of S/5 SHO’s performance, making it an ideal pairing for slightly more modest systems and rooms. In quality it is the equal of S/5 SHO using the same Continuous CastTM Alloy Cone Driver and carbon passive radiator, only in a slightly reduced size, paired with a 400W NexGen2 digital amplifier. Beautifully balanced, S/3 SHO offers powerful, incisive performance for both 2-channel and theater systems.


SHO refers to Super High Output, made possible by a new 3-stage limiter our engineers created after extensive testing revealed that much higher output, higher gain and higher performance could be unlocked. The result is a new design that is capable of more than doubling its predecessor’s output. Specify the S/5 SHO, singly or in pairs, when your system is of exceptionally high quality, and your speakers and room can support high levels of dynamics and bass extension.
