NHT Classic Three Bookshelf Speakers

NHT Classic Three Bookshelf Speakers


- +


The Absolute Sound Magazine called the Classic Three “possibly the best bookshelf speaker under $1000”.  Pretty high praise.  We know it’s the best bookshelf we’ve ever built and we've built quite a few over the last 22 years. The Three offers great bass response, close to 40Hz in room, plus wide-open, natural sounding mids and highs. While it’s a really good speaker for home theater, the Three is simply remarkable for music playback.


The Classic Three is a 3-way design using a 6.5”, very long throw woofer and NHT’s proprietary aluminum Tweeter/Midrange module. This array keeps the drivers in close proximity to each other improving phase coherence.Using 3 drivers also reduces distortion and allows the woofer to concentrate on bass reproduction.

The Three is made with both ¾” and 1” dense fiberboard, internally braced for rigidity and avoiding unwanted resonances. The curved top and bottom and hand-rubbed, high gloss piano-black finish lend a sense of timelessness to its visual aspect. 

Like most NHT speakers, these are sold and packaged individually so you can build any kind of system you want.  If you want a pair, you need to order two.
