Its design with rounded shapes and dimensions of 143 x 195 x 125 mm has been made around a new baking grilles with holes larger than usual that according to the brand allow a better dispersion of sound. Inside we find 53 mm drivers placed at an angle accompanied by a passive radiator to improve the response at low frequencies.
