Designed for both professionals and home entertainment enthusiasts, the PSP-C22 houses structured surface woofers and tweeters in a molded, curved cabinet for wide dispersion and a balanced mix of high, low and mid frequencies.
is the second generation of the range, improving on its predecessor (the C21) by reducing the size of the device without compromising its performance. It features specially designed four-inch drivers with soft dome tweets and a large magnet, as well as a six-element crossover array that mixes all sounds into a clear audio experience.
