All Climate loudspeakers are for patios, gardens, and pools. They sound clear and open and exhibit little sign of strain at high-output levels. Particularly at high-output levels, the greater precision of the Magnetic Fluid Centering System reduces nonlinearities and also permits longer cone excursion for greater output. The proprietary anodizing method strengthens the aluminum cone and also damps it to minimize vibration.
