Vandersteen Model Seven XTRM

Meet the Model Seven XTRM, the newest Vandersteen Audio flagship! The original Model Seven was introduced in 2009 and remains firmly ensconced as a Stereophile Class A Recommendation, a perennial TAS Editor’s Choice winner, and a winner of universal praise from reviewers and consumers worldwide. All of which is testament to the fact that the Seven was a formidable speaker to improve upon! Vandersteen is proud to announce an upgrade to the Model Seven Product range. This new evolution features a recalibrated internal linear 400-watt amplifier with a power-factor-corrected switching power supply, powered Counterforce BassTM with new Opposing 11” Side-firing Subwoofers. Founded upon an included constrained layer damped BedrockTM mass loading base, the cabinet maintains the already quiet StealthTM carbon fiber box-in-box construction. The 11-band EQ now yields more control into the mid-bass to bass integration for better driver transition transparency.

Each change contributes significantly to the overall sonic XTRM improvement. This new model substantially improves clarity and harmonic information, better driver transition accuracy resulting in more fluid and holistic clarity. Every pair is handcrafted entirely at the solar-powered factory in California with unlimited choices of high-gloss automotive paint. To ensure precise response and driver reliability, one unit at a time is measured and adjusted using Vandersteen’s anechoic response measurement (ARM) and calibration. Each piece is then explicitly matched in driver response, crossover accuracy with its twin to make a perfect stereo pair.

The Model Seven XTRM advances are rooted in Vandersteen's 40-year-old cornerstone concept: to design full-range, time- and phase-accurate, minimum baffle, vertical array speaker systems. They introduced this concept with the original Vandersteen Model 2 in 1977. The fact that narrow speakers with vertically arrayed drivers are ubiquitous today demonstrates the influence and validity of this speaker design.
