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.
