Kanto YU3

Equipped with 4-inch Kevlar drivers and 1-inch silk dome tweeters, the YU3 speakers pump out a balanced midrange, deep bass, and crisp highs, with an output power of 60 watts per side. Connect them to your source using a standard 3.5-millimeter jack, RCA cords, or optical inputs, or wirelessly to your Bluetooth-compatible device. Finally, in case the YU3's ample bass isn’t enough, there’s another output for adding a subwoofer.
