Built for Powerful, Accurate Sound Reproduction with an Innovative Cabinet Design
The design of the cabinet is of course extremely important if the aim is to create a speaker with superior reproduction capabilities. The goal was to reduce standing waves to ensure highest accuracy, as well as to provide a full, three-dimensional sound with an awesome feeling of depth. The solution was to design a cabinet with non-parallel surfaces, having the woofer and midrange sections divided by a slanted partition, and strengthening the entire enclosure with vertical ladder bracing. Another important point is the 3-way mitered construction of the cabinet joints, achieved thanks to Yamaha's excellence in woodworking. This technique ensures extremely tight joints so the entire cabinet behaves as a single unit, providing tight, powerful and accurate bass reproduction.
