●Braced cabinet construction dramatically reduces cabinet resonance by adding the twin
virtues of strength and rigidity to the cabinet walls.
●Having the tweeter separate from the main cabinet readily allows it to be set back and
time aligned with the acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone, which is located behind
the plane of the front baffle, and minimises the effects of diffraction from the cabinet edges.
This results in improved imaging and coherence.
●B&W's Tweeter on top technology ensures that the sound remains focused
three dimensional accuracy.
