Select the Acoustic Technology You Like
Sound Restorer enables high-quality reproduction of compressed audio, and Reverb Control helps to create a more natural surround sound experience. You can select advanced acoustic technologies like these according to the musical genre or media you are playing. 

Tweeter Clear and Dynamic Middle-High Range Reproduction
Beautifully Curved Design Expressing Subtle Tonality

Accented with a champagne gold line, the design taste matches up perfectly with the speaker units.

High-Response Dual Neodymium Magnets
By positioning two neodymium magnets, one above and one below the tweeter plate, the superior magnetic flux density of neodymium create a high-density magnetic gap to deliver quick response and stable driving.


Pure Soft Dome Tweeter for Rich Middle-High Range
Reproduction of crystal clear highs up to 40kHz and powerful vocals is made possible by this broad bandwidth tweeter. Combining it with the Z7 (speaker) in the front enables high-range reproduction of high-resolution audio sources. In addition to reproducing a lustrous high-range for richly resonating tones, it delivers a powerful mid-range full of presence as well as natural sounding vocals.

2-Way Mountable for Installation on Dashboard or Door
The tweeter can be surface-mounted on the dashboard, or flush-mounted in the door by modifying the door trim.
