- Deep ChannelÂ® (DCD) driver design that makes the most of the available amplifier power by using a deeply grooved pole plate that enables the voice coil to travel farther, for greater output without bottoming;
- Heavy-duty, aluminum C-brackets and unique wedge shape design that makes mounting easy and aesthetically pleasing
