Features the Latest Vandersteen 6.5 inch Die cast Basket woofer and 1 inch critically damped alloy tweeter
The enclosure is made of 1-inch constrained layer-damped high density MDF clad with real wood finish.
The diffraction-free grill is removable and comes in standard fabric colors which include black, beige and charcoal gray. All standard wood veneers are available for the price of $1,195 per pair. Custom woods and finishes are also an option.
For under $1K, the only choice I can think of currently being manufactured is the NHT Classic Three, although that is a three-way speaker.
If you consider used speakers, the NHT SB-3 would fill your bill, as would the Spicas (I believe they are sealed) or the Celestion SL-6, SL-600 series, if you can find them for under $1K.
