When we first looked at getting into the multi media speaker market we looked at what was available from other manufactures. What we found were cheap drivers housed in plastic boxes driven by inexpensive amplifiers. The boomy subwoofer masked the anemic sound of the satellites. Turn the subwoofer off and you got the true picture.
So we decided to build multimedia speakers using wood cabinets, high quality drivers and a decent amplifier. The M20 uses a response 3"driver and a 6"subwoofer in wood cabinets. Wood is much more effective dampening back wave transmission than plastic. The amplifier doesn't skimp on parts. The result is a surprising quality of sound for the price. The volume control is located on light cord that extends from the speaker making allowing you to make adjustments easily at any time.
