Model Three Bookshelf Speaker

Second in line in the Model Collection, the Model Three stand-mounted bookshelf speaker continues the KLH acoustic suspension legacy of accurate audiophile-quality performance. This charming bookshelf speaker serves as the perfect solution for music enthusiasts with smaller listening spaces. And comparable to the KLH Model Five, listeners have the flexibility to place their Model Three’s closer to the wall than the average tower speaker. Or with even more convenience, you can fit your Model Three on a bookshelf!

The KLH Model Three is manufactured using real wood veneers, cast aluminum baskets, and gorgeous, sustainable MDF cabinetry. Like the Model Five floorstanding speaker, the English Walnut Model Three bookshelf speaker comes with a beautiful Stone Wash Linen grille cloth that magnifies the rich finish of the real wood veneers. Meanwhile, the West African Mahogany finish is complemented by the gorgeous Old-World Linen grille cloth that never fails to make a striking statement. You can purchase the Old-World Linen, Stone Wash Linen, and the stunning Basalt Black Knit grille separately to customize your Model Three bookshelf speaker as your own!

“The Model Three always sounds taut, rhythmic, and controlled, helping to connect with the music on an emotional level. I wanted to listen longer and rediscover all my old favorite pieces of music.”

– Mark Gusew, StereoNET

“Now with respect to sound quality, I’m not going to beat around the bush. Like the Model Fives, the Three’s are amazing.

They’re very much like a scaled-down version of the Five in that the midrange and treble clarity is simply off the charts and largely without equal at this price point. Enjoyable across the widest range of music genres.

There is no denying that the Model Three is another win for KLH and one that is easy for me to recommend- especially when your room and listening tastes align with its strengths.”

“I think the KLH Model Threes are one of the best deals and best-kept secrets in audio.”

Basalt Black Linen grilles pair M3


Eager to take your Model Threes to the dark side? Now you can with the Basalt Black Knit Grilles! Like the original grille clothes, these black beauties are both magnetic and acoustically transparent. No other grille accessory will make as bold of a statement on the English Walnut and West African Mahogany Model Three finishes as the new Basalt Black Knit grilles.

Stone Washed Linen grilles pair M3


No look compares to that of the KLH Model Three when it is dressed in the stunningly beautiful Stonewash Linen grille cloth. The acoustically transparent grille canvas perfectly complements the refined, rich mahogany finish of the Model Three. Its elegance gives this classic American loudspeaker a modern-day, retro look that turns heads. This custom order accessory ships in sets of two and is the attachment your Model Three should not stand without.

Old World Linen grilles pair M3


There is nothing more visually inviting than the look of the classic Old World Linen grille cloth on a KLH Model Three. This magnetic, textured grille cloth makes a statement on both the West African Mahogany and English Walnut finish by accomplishing a mid-century modern appeal. With the cast-zinc KLH logo in the bottom corner, your Model Threes will be the focal point of your listening space while dressed in the Old World Linen grilles.


The Model Three stands strong on an 8-degree slant riser base made from powder-coated 14-gauge steel. The riser base’s upward angular stance ensures the sound is directed accurately toward the listener, while the steel reinforces its notoriety as a solid and non-resonant speaker base. This base can be used for speakers of all kinds but is made perfectly for our KLH Model Three.
