The Slant 8 was the effective replacement for the Centaur Major, even if it was slightly less tall. The woofer is an 8" Vifa which is positioned 39" from the floor, hidden behind a grille cloth that covers most of the front face. (the grille cloth is not easily removed without a special service tool). The woofer's front slot-loaded box tapers from top to bottom and is very rigidly constructed. Input is via two pairs of binding posts, so bi-wiring or bi-amping is possible. A toggle switch on the rear adjusts the woofer output up or down by 2 dB. The speaker comes with a set of four spikes and matching screw-in sockets in the base.
