Satellites have a spherical shape and small dimensions. The case is made by casting method. This fact provides avoiding of undesirable rattling especially at high volume. Each speaker has broadband loudspeaker made of paper and has a magnetic screening. It provides a reproduction of frequency range from 230 Hz to 20 kHz. And metal mesh ensures protection against possible damage of the internal components.
