The speakers comprise of a unique 28 mm soft round tweeter, with low distortion and rapid growth. The product is sculptured from a block of birch and a handmade 8 inch woofer.

The speaker’s aerodynamics improve the aesthetic aspect while also forming a low velocity hybrid laminar port, that leads to a more complex advancement in technology. The speakers are set to be released in the 4th quarter of 2015 while some improvements are being catered to for the home Hi – Fi system, to keep the performance updated and remove any issues completely.
