Reduced Edge Diffraction (RED™) Technology

RED™ Technology (patent pending) is a die-cast aluminum tweeter housing that significantly reduces negative effects of diffraction while improving critical midrange frequencies. The irregular edges and off-center placement break up standing waves typically found around the woofer cone and tweeter housing of traditional designs. Additionally, the aluminum structure dissipates unwanted heat which increases power handling and allows a lower crossover frequency, improving sound and reducing distortion

Advanced Features for a Solid and Secure Installation

Die-cast aluminum chassis, baffles and clamps

Die-cast aluminum chassis, baffles and clamps add strength and rigidity for better bass and midrange, along with a more durable installation.

Rear Component Shielding

Rear Component Shielding protects internal parts from debris. The translucent polycarbonate material creates an installation that will not warp. Flat covers also make it easy to lie speakers down during the installation process without tipping.

Bezel-Free Micro-Perf Grilles.

• Pocketed screw holes help to hold the drill steady, making installation a snap
• Magnetically attached grilles: neodymium magnets hold grilles firmly in place

Nickel-plated, spring loaded binding posts

Nickel-plated, spring loaded binding posts feature a larger wire hole to accept higher-gauge wire or banana plugs

Premium-grade components

Premium-grade components include high-power rated resistors capacitors and heavy gauge wire inductors.

A Behind-the-Ceiling Look at the Die-Cast Aluminum Clamps

Without any unnecessary pressure or force, each turn of the screwdriver turns the clamp. We show the starting point, we show the screwdriver working to turn the clamp, and finally, we show the speaker locked into place inside the wall or ceiling. It doesn't get simpler or easier!

A Solid Installation

The high-strength die-cast aluminum chassis and clamp system address the flexibility problem that plagues all walls and ceilings. Chassis stiffness combats unwanted resonances and vibrations, and equally important, the new clamp design makes the installer's job easier and faster! Simply push the speaker into the ceiling or wall and screw it in.
