Aluminum Dome Tweeters

Crystal clear highs bring the most demanding audio to life. Our tweeters play higher in frequency than what is heard by the human ear, creating an authentic reproduction of sound as the artist intends in the studio or concert hall.

Integrated 8” Powered Subwoofer and Bass Radiator

The best loudspeaker is one that reproduces balance between the highest highs down to ground-shaking lows as accurately as possible. The integrated powered subwoofer matched with its respective bass radiator offers deeper, more impactful bass from the center channel speaker without the need to add a separate subwoofer.

BDSS – Balanced Double Surround System

Improves driver excursion which results in the selected driver producing bass output usually associated with a larger driver, while retaining the improved dispersion and midrange definition of a smaller driver.

Intelligent Bass Control

Intelligent Bass Control™ is our latest advancement that gives you the ability to modulate deep bass up or down in level while simultaneously maintaining mid-range tonal balance.

Acoustically Transparent Grille

Enjoy the subtle elegance of the speaker design without having to remove a speaker grille to enjoy natural, uncolored sound.

Totally Inert, Resonance-Free Cabinet

Maximum rigidity with strategically placed bracing improves imaging while reducing resonance, further reinforcing our clean and powerful sound.
