ℹ Product Information

These Spendor Classic 4/5 bookshelf speakers are Ex Display units, there is one pair available in walnut.

The new Spendor Classic 4/5 loudspeaker is the most charming and beautifully balanced sounding small Spendor Classic ever. It maintains the captivating warmth and natural clarity and precision of its distinguished predecessors in the Spendor Classic Line. The Spendor Classic 4/5 delivers low frequencies with a remarkable sense of depth and extension. It is notably free from the artificial brightness and over-blown bass which characterises the sound of most modern loudspeakers. The new Spendor Classic 4/5 mirrors the elegant timeless style and finish of the latest generation of Spendor Classic loudspeakers. A style which is considered quite ‘cool’ today.


The Classic 4/5 bass-mid drive unit features a high linearity, high excursion motor-magnet system, a 15cm diameter pressure die-cast magnesium alloy chassis, an EP77 polymer cone, and new surround and suspension materials with outstanding thermal and mechanical stability. The driver has good power handling and extremely good low-level linearity. Key electrical, mechanical and damping parameters have been optimised to suit the sealed enclosure so, whether placed on a stand or open shelf, the 4/5 always delivers low frequencies with fine articulation and a natural sense of depth and musical timing. Low frequencies integrate seamlessly with the beautifully clear and open mid-band.


A 22mm wide-surround tweeter combines the extended frequency response of a small diaphragm with the low frequency characteristics of a larger diaphragm to give stable low distortion response over a very wide frequency range. The unique diaphragm profile delivers a smooth extended high frequency response over a very wide listening area.


Timing is fundamental to the musical experience. In conventional loudspeakers rigid highdensity cabinet panels are mass-damped to reduce cabinet-talk. Spurious energy is stored and released slowly. This creates unacceptable blurring and slowing of the sound. Spendor’s solution for the 4/5 cabinet is thin low-mass side panels anchored to a rigid front baffle. Each panel is bonded to a viscoelastic damping pad which dissipates any spurious energy into inaudible heat. The result is a beautifully engaging sound with all types of music.


A meticulously refined crossover network with precision wound inductors and high-linearity plastic film capacitors integrates the drivers seamlessly in a minimum phase alignment. The network is carefully engineered to achieve an easy to drive 8 ohm load which ensures complete compatibility with all good amplifiers, from powerful solid state to the most esoteric tube designs.


Every critical component and every complete Spendor loudspeaker is calibrated to stringent broadcast reference standards at every step of the production process, and every Spendor loudspeaker is designed and manufactured entirely in-house in the UK.
