  • Product Information
    • Features

      • Custom Drivers
        Both the tweeter and bass driver have been custom designed by Andrew Jones to deliver an exceptional audio experience that can’t be delivered with typical off-the-shelf parts.
      • Woven Aramid-Fiber Woofer
        Woven aramid fiber offers a superior stiffness-to-weight ratio and damping over common polypropylene or paper cones. The added strength allows more flexibility in design to achieve a smoother, extended frequency response.
      • Deep-Spheroid Custom Waveguide
        A custom-designed tweeter waveguide with a deep spheroid profile is utilized to improve directivity control and shield the tweeter wavefront from cabinet diffraction.
      • Intricate Crossover

        >A custom seven-element crossover with audio-grade components is implemented to ensure smooth transition between the drivers.
