Top-Rated Floor Speaker, Updated

Priced, packed, and shipped each. Shipped dim and weight above.

The A5.5 is Chane's latest, fourth generation floor speaker, a clean, classic, powerful design focusing on precise imaging and a clear, expansive soundstage with the highest level of acoustic openness and presence. The A5.5's seamless, more rhythmic sound is the ultimate expression of the original, top-rated Chane A5 Arx model.

The A5.5 deploys three SplitGap midwoofers for plenty of clean, low distortion acoustical headroom – engineers call it higher volume displacement. A revised, dedicated midrange driver makes the A5.5 Chane's only 3-way model, and our custom crossover network tunes the A5.5 for its most linear response yet.

Standing just over forty inches tall, the A5.5 is supported by an improved all-metal base system that looks better and allows easier adjustments on any surface.

What's Different?

First, Chane uses no standard woofers, domes, or AMTs in the A series. Chane's licensed XBL2 SplitGap midwoofer and pro-style planar leaf tweeter deliver cleaner, more dynamic sound - they cost more to include but they deliver real results.

  • SplitGap XBL2 midwoofer. Radically improved linearity for up to twice the clean output. Real fundamental bass from an affordable compact speaker.
  • Chane's planar leaf tweeter: High surface area, vanishingly low mass, and extreme treble extension. Faster, more detailed treble to over 30kHz.
  • Premium crossover: Large-gauge inductors, higher grade poly film capacitors, and special audio-grade resistors support Chane's superior tech.
  • Heavy cabinet: Nearly twice the weight of some conventional speakers in the class, Chane's extra-grade casework keeps things cleaner, quieter.

What is XBL2? Drop us a line for the white paper - it's real tech and only Chane offers it for this little.

Purpose-built, Right Down to the Small Details

Chane's higher-dynamic planar leaf tweeter includes a new molded aluminum lens for smoother response to well beyond 30kHz. Our CAD-designed and hand-tuned crossover is sophisticated enough to manage each driver's response correctly, yet simple enough to sound less intrusive. The A5.5's thick, acoustically dense cabinet is perimeter-braced six ways, and extensive internal acoustical treatment keeps the sound clean. The rear port won't project unwanted energy forward, and gold-plated input terminals accept heavier gauge audio cables.

The substantial A5.5 is finished in the same stealthy simulated black ash as the rest of the line and includes a removable black knit grille and an acoustical port plug to optionally convert it to sealed operation.

An Impressive Feature List

It takes a lot to rank in the top of a field of $1000 - $2500 designs in direct comparisons. Great components, classic design, solid build quality, and comprehensive tuning make the A5.5 a leading contender in its class. And sometimes, beyond its class.
