    Canton speakers
    Everyone - I still have a set of bookshelf Canton Fonum 300 speakers that were made in the former West Germany. I bought them in the early 90s but have forgotten much about them. I remember that there wasnt enough of a low end.

    Does anyone know about them? Thanks!

    No I dont know about the Canton Fonum 300, but I have seen pictures of them before and they look like the 403's but without the same mid-woofer. The mid-woofer on the 403 is aluminum. And the 403's have bass but you gotta place the right in your system. Great speakers.

    Hi,

    What exactly do you need to know?

    I've never heard and seen them alive, but here is specification:

    Here in Portugal, they seem to available by mail order. I have yet to see them on the shop floor in order to merit an audition. Sorry, canīt be of further help.
