Sentinel Smaller 2-way floorstander series

The Sentinels are a range of elegant medium sized two-way floorstanders with a single high performing woofer and tweeter, but all the clarity, control and extended range of some of the larger series -- just a little less power. All Ascension speakers use a similar very smooth and unique type of high performing crossover design, adapted and fine-tuned, of course, to the various two-way or three-way driver configurations and power requirements. This is what gives Ascension High Resolution Speakers their consistency in musicality and detail across the whole range, along with other unique design features - including a hybrid Transmission Line bass loading principal for smooth, natural and extended bass impact.

These 2-way floorstanders are made with quality parts and represent great value. They allow for a small footprint and an elegant solution to your audio needs.

All speakers include grilles. All grilles are removable but any speaker can be made without grilles if you request.
