This range of loudspeakers is now made up of four models. They contain the same technologies as Kanta N°2: a speaker driver with flax cone, an IAL 3 Beryllium tweeter that combines the IAL (Infinite Acoustic Loading) and IHL (Infinite Horn Loading) tweeters, features, a TMD (Tuned Mass Damper) suspension and an NIC (Neutral Inductance Circuit) motor

Kanta N°3 is for larger rooms of up to 861 square ft² (80m2).

A Kanta Center (£2,299) is also available. 

Technologies used within the above designs include:

TUNED MASS DAMPER 

Apparently derived from a technology used in earthquake-resistant skyscrapers and which is also used for the suspension on racing cars: an additional mass oscillating in opposition to the resonance frequency.

NEUTRAL INDUCTANCE CIRCUIT TECHNOLOGY 

NIC technology lies in a Faraday ring whose dimensions, materials and positioning were, “…optimised to make the magnetic field no longer affected by the position of the voice coil, by the amperage or the frequency of the current passing through it.”

BERYLLIUM TWEETER 

…features a, “…light and extremely rigid dome.”

FLAX SANDWICH CONE 

Flax cones are made of flax fibers enclosed by two thin layers of glass fibre.
