Unlike the plastic components of most conventional iPod docking speaker systems, this quality handcrafted wood cabinet speaker utilizes a special high-efficiency acoustic MDF and interior reinforcement. The system is specifically designed to absorb the excessive vibration and impact sometimes generated under extreme sound conditions.
Built-in Subwoofers Deliver Strong Bass
Once you dock your iPod, you can use the included remote to crank up the bass--built-in subwoofers ensure that you'll get full-bodied sound. On the front of the unit, two 3-inch, magnetically shielded full-range Kevlar cone drivers and two 5-1/4-inch, magnetically shielded low-range Kevlar cone drivers deliver a forceful 80 watts of power for soaring audio performance that fills any room. On the back, two bass reflex ports aid in the reproduction of low frequencies below 80 hertz, helping to create a fuller soundscape.
