The YSM5-2 features 1-inch black-silk diaphragm neodymium dome tweeters. These tweeters blend seamlessly into the specially designed low diffraction wave guide which is integrated into the front baffle. The edges of the wave-guide perfectly couple the tweeter with the woofer, reducing sonic anomalies normally associated with driver/tweeter proximity. The fibre reinforced composite cone woofers have also been designed to perform with sonic excellence, providing a wide dynamic range at all levels. Integrated DSP is utilized to deliver transparent signal processing and bi-amplification has been optimized for each driver. The woofer and tweeter have been perfectly time aligned to eliminate any phase irregularities usually associated with 2-way designs.
