Small footprint, mighty sound
Looking for a pair of compact (yet awesome) speakers for your desktop, den, or other space-challenged area? Consider KLH Audio's Ames — the smallest and most affordable model in the company's new speaker lineup. At only 7-1/2" tall, these little gems punch above their weight class.

Advanced drivers yield detailed sound
Check out the carefully crafted drivers built into each sealed enclosure. A 1" anodized aluminum tweeter produces clear, non-fatiguing highs. And KLH uses a 4" woven Kevlar® woofer into each enclosure for punchy, accurate bass.
This a real accomplishment at this price point, since you'll find the same kind of driver duo in KLH's more expensive bookshelf and floor-standing speakers.
The KLH name lives on
Henry Kloss and his partners founded KLH in Cambridge, Massachusetts back in the '50s. Kloss changed the audio industry with innovations like the acoustic suspension loudspeaker, the first-ever full-range electrostatic speaker, and the first high-selectivity table radio.
Today, KLH is headquartered in Noblesville, Indiana. The company's new speaker lineup represents a fresh take on that rich and varied KLH legacy.
Get the most out of your stand-mount speakers
I'm a proponent of using high-quality speaker stands with bookshelf speakers. They help improve the sound by giving your speakers a stable, vibration-free platform. When shopping for stands, remember that the ideal height will place the tweeters roughly level with your ears, for maximum clarity.
Speaker stands also give you more placement flexibility, since you won't be limited to a space on your shelf or table. Keeping your speakers away from the wall or the corner of a bookshelf can also prevent excessively boomy bass.
The Sanus SF26 steel stands are an excellent choice to use with a pair of the KLH Ames, but feel free to contact one of our Advisors for a specific recommendation for your setup.
