Dumbbell speaker design for naturally balanced sound
With a dumbbell speaker design, the high-range tweeter is positioned at the midpoint, between two lower frequency woofers. In this product the woofer driver is on top, with the tweeter in the middle and the Philips patented wOOx on the bottom. This configuration generates a more balanced sound making the overall audio effect more natural. And the premium finish of this quality speaker will complement you and your choice of audio equipment.
Aluminum metal front
Premium build quality design. The speakers front is made from a single piece of anodized brushed aluminum – the same material used to build aircraft. The aluminum, curved to create an ideal acoustic chamber, optimizes audio delivery for sound that is accurate, powerful, natural and crystal clear.
PP driver material
The polypropylene (PP) material in the driver, which is soft, makes for better high frequency sounds. It can help rolling out and produces a purer sound with better clarity and balance. Easier to integrate with the tweeter, the use of this lightweight material results in less vibration.
Well damped driver reduces vibration and sound distortion
A single speaker driver normally incurs a specific frequency division vibration near the edge of the diaphragm, often resulting in some sound distortion. This way to overcome this problem by using Mylar, a uniform monomer and a much lighter material that is more usually used, around the driver cone. Surrounding the cone in a perfectly symmetrical ring, the resulting damping effect suppresses the asynchronous vibration, resulting in a more balanced and natural sound.
