For music and movies
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. At the top of the hierarchy of the current GLE series are the GLE 100 3-way floor-standing loudspeakers. Their imposing appearance, coupled with attractive design and harmonious proportions, immediately shows where the acoustic journey is heading: the GLE 100 play powerfully and dynamically. With their outstanding, well-balanced sound characteristics, however, they will also delight audiophile refined listeners right from the start. This is ensured by the latest technology, which is allowed to take its place on the slim baffle and creates the unique Canton sound - with our outstanding drivers made of titanium, which moves into the current GLE series.
Striving for the best sound means a lot of hard work and the use of the latest technology. Our GLE speakers benefit from the constant progress we're making in loudspeaker development, both visually and technically. The two 219 mm woofers in the optimally sized bass reflex cabinet produce sharply contoured, deep bass. Instead of the previous drivers with aluminium diaphragms, low-frequency specialists with highly stable titanium diaphragms are now used: these can follow fast music impulses even more precisely. In the acoustically immensely important midrange, too, we use titanium drivers in the current GLE series. Thanks to the large 174 mm midrange driver in its own volume, the GLE 100 sounds incredibly agile and shines with high dynamics, outstanding resolution and unsurpassed balance. As ideal playing partners we use our mature and well-proven aluminium-manganese tweeter systems with 25 mm domes, which are equipped with sophisticated waveguides for ideal sound dispersion and coupling. Thanks to the optimised crossovers, reproduction is possible up to 40,000 Hertz. The outstanding technical equipment of the current GLE generation is further underlined by the loudspeaker chassis with stable polycarbonate baskets, potent magnetic drives and triple folded wave surrounds.
Modern and powerful
The solid 3-way GLE 100 floorstanding speakers are both modern and neutral in design. Despite their stately cabinet size, the slender GLE 100s can be integrated almost anywhere thanks to their harmonious proportions. They are available in attractive "Black Vinyl" and "White Vinyl" enclosures with matt black or satin white lacquered baffles. An ornamental feature of the current GLE series are the black or white fabric covers, which are magnetically attached to the baffles. They are generously rounded at the corners, giving the floorstanding speakers an independent, attractive face. The well-proportioned GLE 100 floorstanding speakers are 116 centimetres high, with a width of only 24 centimetres and a depth of 40 centimetres. Four feet integrated into the bottom of the cabinet ensure a firm footing on the floor.
You can expand the powerful GLE 100 3-way floorstanding speakers with other models from the GLE series to create a powerful, high-performance multi-channel home cinema system. For example, you can use our GLE 100 as the main speaker, combine it with the matching GLE 50 centre speaker and the GLE 30 as a surround speaker. The POWER SUB 12 subwoofer, which harmonises perfectly with the GLE 100, takes over the active low-frequency part 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 Canton 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.
