Speaker Design

Speaker Type
The type of speaker determines the use that the speaker is intended for. Some speakers are manufactured specifically for home use while others are made for professional use.
All-Weather/ Water-Resistant
All-weather and water-resistant speakers are made to withstand the elements. They usually have been treated with a protective coating to shield against all types of weather. From wet to dry, hot to cold, these speakers are prepared. Speakers that are water-resistant are not to be submerged in water.
No
Professional/ DJ Equipment
This feature designates if the speaker is designed for professional use. Professional products consist of high end PA (Public Address) systems, DJ Equipment, Karaoke equipment, and other uses that require a high end unit.
No
Indoor/Outdoor Speaker
This designates whether the speaker is intended for indoor use or outdoor use.
Indoor
Multi-Purpose Speaker
This designates if the speaker can be used for multiple activities. Can be hooked up to anything that uses a 3.5mm headphone jack, such as a CD/MP3 player or a computer.
No

Speaker Specifications

Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
50 - 20000 Hz
Terminal Type
Spring clip terminals work best with bare wire connections with small-gauge speaker wire, or pin-type connectors.

Binding post terminals are a sturdier, more versatile type of speaker terminal. Because binding post terminals are are threaded, you can tighten them down against the wire or connector for a tight, clean connection. The most popular style of binding post terminals is known as a "5-way binding post". This type can accept bare wire, or any of the common speaker wire connectors. Binding posts with the option to be used with banana clips are even more versatile

Spring posts are a hybrid of the two. Instead of using a thread and "screwing" them tight, they use a spring to allow the wire to fit and tighten against the terminal.

1/4" Phone Jack
A 1/4" Phone jack can be used to connect the speakers to the audio source. The jack can usually be found on the terminals. The 1/4" phone jack can be used instead of connecting speaker wires to the terminals. If the output source supports this jack, a lot of time can be saved when setting up and taking down equipment.
3.5mm Stereo Jack
Uses a 3.5mm stereo jack to connect to an audio source. This is the common size found on most CD and Mp3 players, as well as most home computers.
Yes
Horn
A horn is found on some loudspeakers to increase the efficiency of the driving element. Often found in PA systems, horns are typically used to increase the high sound levels

Speaker Enclosure

Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Black
Paintable Frame
This means that the frame or cabinet of the speaker can be painted to match its surroundings.
No
Enclosure Material
The material that the speaker enclosure is made of. While some speakers have a painted plastic housing, others have a carpeted wood enclosure. Depending on the material, some speakers are more durable than other. Common materials include: Plastic, MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard), treated plywood, and high-impact polypropylene.
