Dual-Layer Kevlar Cone
Woofers: Each speaker features a cone comprised of two layers: an outer
layer of ceramic-coated Kevlar, and an inner layer of Pioneer's Rigilite IMPP
(injection-molded polypropylene) reinforced with Kevlar fiber. This dual-layer
construction, light weight, rigidity, and incredible strength of Kevlar delivers
excellent responsiveness, accurate movement, and high resistance to flexing.
This unique design gives you tight, detailed music with improved mid-bass
definition and punch.
Surrounds: For a
smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use butyl rubber
1-1/8" Laminated Polyester
Soft Dome Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1-1/8" laminated polyester
fiber dome tweeter with magnetic fluid and a Neodymium magnet. The tweeters are
encased in a specially-designed anti-resonant sealed rear chamber. The
waveguides in front of the tweeters provide wide sound dispersion. The tweeter
produces exceptionally smooth, detailed, high-frequency sound.
Tweeter Enclosure: The rear
chamber tweeter enclosure extends mid-range frequency for improved vocal imaging
and staging. The chamber is notched behind the cone to decrease standing waves,
and to lower frequency response. The tweeter enclosures are mounted above a
distinctive copper ring.
woofers have high-energy, 11-ounce strontium magnets with a rubber magnet boot.
The magnet boot dresses up the magnet, and allows the mounting depth to be
Glass-Imide Voice Coil Bobbins:
Each speaker has a Glass-Imide Voice Coil Bobbin
for higher power handling.
Built-in 2-Way Crossovers: A
2-way, 12dB/octave high-pass filter and low-pass filter is attached to each speaker
to improve the transition from mid to high frequency. Audiophile-grade
capacitors and inductors are used, and all components are encased in a clear
acrylic cover for protection.
Stamped Steel Basket: The
speakers feature extra-thick stamped-steel baskets for strength and to reduce
The speakers can be mounted in a 6-1/2" opening, or, using the four
mounting tabs, the speakers can be mounted in a 6-3/4" opening.
Grilles: The speakers include
silver spoke grilles made of heatproof resin.
