Features

Woofers: The woofer cones are PBO advanced fiber. PBO is a high-performance fiber that has superior strength, thermal stability and very low moisture retention. Since PBO resists flexing and is heat-resistant, the speaker has lower distortion and improved power handling. The low moisture retention allows the speaker to retain its original performance for a longer period of time without being changed by the elements. For a smoother response and improved durability, each speaker uses a butyl rubber surround.

Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 1-3/16" PEI balanced-dome tweeter. PEI (Poly-Ether Imide) is a polymer film that has ideal sound characteristics, making it perfect for use as a tweeter. A PEI balanced-dome tweeter produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

Warranty Note

Warranty Note: Although these speakers come with a 1 year warranty card, they are covered by the Kenwood eXcelon 2 year warranty.
