Bottom Line:   
One of Kenwoods finest acheivements in speakers was only made for two short years, 1978-79. Designed with an extensive amount of Research and development, the LS-408B is in a class by itself. Having the tightest bass response with the flattest response curve of any speaker of this size & type you will ever hear. EEG meter testing of the bass port revealed only one cycle overshoot indicating superb damping, with absolutely no huffing heard during playback. Midrange and tweeter are the cleanest, clearest, most detailed and uncolored &, unharsh you will ever hear. Expect ZERO listening fatigue with these babies playing ANY type of music! Trouble is with these speakers is they are 30 plus years old now and are extremely hard to find. I have had mine for the better part of 20 years, among listening to many other brands and types of speakers, I ALWAYS end up going right back to my LS-408B's!
