Dynamic Balance is designed to ensure a rich, clean, full-range sound, no matter what you’re listening to. It analyzes the speaker’s electro-acoustic and mechanical system for improved material selection and more efficient geometry, then pinpoints and eliminates issues that reduce speaker performance before they become a part of the finished product.
