G-PAL™ Gold-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Domes. Exceptionally rigid low-mass domes with treated textile suspensions ensure remarkably uniform and instantaneous power response. The elevated position of the dome provides better ‘air’ and frequency response that is smooth, pure and clear.

S-PAL™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Midrange and Bass / Midrange Cones. Very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and outstanding internal damping. The result? Remarkable midrange clarity, superb extended bass response and freedom from unwanted resonances and distortions.

IMS/SHOCK-MOUNT™ Isolation Mounting System. This unique butyl-rubber driver fastening system found on all Studio Series drivers is a progressive system of critically placed isolation inserts and gaskets that decouple drivers from the speaker enclosure itself. This leading-edge ‘baffle-less’ technology reduces driver / enclosure interactions to inaudible levels.

High-Velocity Low-Noise Aluminum Ports. Bass efficiency and minimum turbulence distortion for cleaner and more articulate bass response. Studio 10 features an elliptical port, a functional touch that allowed us to gain a little more and a little deeper bass response, in fact, far more than is typical in such a compact design.

Beautifully Sculpted Cabinets with Real Wood Veneer Finishes. Add a whole new dimension to the classic appeal of this series. Seven coats of the highest quality lacquer, hand-sanded between coats. Available in four luxurious real wood veneer finishes.
