New edition - Our bestselling series

The GLE Series speakers are technically convincing and visually appealing: thanks to these qualities, the attractive and versatile GLE models have been among the most popular speakers in Europe for many years. Now we have completely revised the successful GLE model range - both visually and technically. What has remained is the strong price-performance ratio and, of course, the convincingly good Canton sound. The GLE 20 compact loudspeakers deliver the highest sonic performance with very living room-friendly dimensions. At the same time, technically mature loudspeaker chassis and skilful sound tuning ensure the best Canton quality and thus guarantee long-lasting listening pleasure. New and unique in this price and size class: Titanium speaker drivers for pure listening pleasure.

The technology: Better than ever

Striving for the best sound means a lot of hard work and the use of the latest technology. The GLE speakers benefit from the constant progress we make in loudspeaker development, both visually and technically. First and foremost, we would like to mention our outstanding titanium drivers, which have been incorporated into the current GLE series. Our aluminium-manganese tweeter system with a 25 mm dome tweeter, which provides the GLE 20 with finely resolved highs and an enormously detailed sound, has been tried and tested. The ideal partner is the powerful 154 mm bass/midrange driver with titanium cone, which can reproduce deep tones powerfully and precisely in the optimally tuned bass reflex volume. Its lightweight yet extremely rigid cone guarantees balanced and neutral midrange reproduction with outstanding detail resolution. The bass-midrange drivers are equipped with sturdy polycarbonate baskets, powerful magnet drives and the latest generation of triple-folded wave surrounds, allowing the speakers to perform very dynamically with the lowest distortion. The GLE 20 compact loudspeaker performs up to 40,000 Hertz - thanks to its precisely calculated and optimally shaped waveguide with ideal sound radiation even to the sides of the loudspeakers.

Compactly built

Harmonious in proportions and neutral and modern in design, the GLE 20 2-way compact speakers can be used universally: free-standing on the matching LS 660 stands, on a rack or in a shelf. The baffles are painted black or white, depending on the chosen finish. The body of the compact speakers is available in "black decor", "white decor" and "macassar decor". The black, sound-neutral fabric covers hold magnetically to the baffles. The 29.5-centimetre-high, 17-centimetre-wide and 26-centimetre-deep GLE 20 weighs around 4.5 kilograms.

Ideally combined

You can combine the universal 2-way GLE 20 compact speakers with other models from the GLE series to create a powerful, high-performance multi-channel home cinema system. For example, use our GLE 70 as the main speaker, combine it with a GLE 50 centre speaker and add a pair of GLE 20s as surround speakers. The Power Sub 12 subwoofer, an ideal match, takes over the active low-frequency part of the system and ensures powerful bass in your home cinema. Depending on your preferences and requirements, you can also put together your own personal home cinema multi-channel dream from the large GLE portfolio and experience ultimate movie fun within your own four walls. Connect your speakers to our smart electronic component Smart Amp 5.1 and take off into the wireless world of music streaming. It effortlessly replaces a classic AV receiver and offers an incomparable variety of combinations and connections - with the best sound and minimal dimensions.
