Sound Quality of Aiwa Exos-9 Tailgating Speaker :
The Aiwa Exos-9 is a formidable tailgating sound system. It has 5 powered speakers which include two 1-inch silk dome tweeters, two 3-inch neodymium midrange drivers and one 6.5-inch subwoofer with dual voice coils. The tweeters process the high frequencies (treble), the midrange drivers take care of the medium range bands, and the woofer handles the lowest frequencies (bass). With such an elaborate array of dedicated drivers, you can rest assured you will get nothing but the best, most natural acoustic reproduction of the original track possible. The Aiwa Exos-9 has Class D bi-amplification and active and passive crossovers. The active crossovers split up the audio signal before amplification and send them to the amplifier while the passive crossover splits up the amplified audio signal and channels them to two or more drivers. This mechanism strengthens the incoming signal and makes it more robust and intense. The amp further powers the drivers and enhances the overall sound output. The Aiwa Exos-9 has a bass reflex port on the rear panel for optimum bass deliver. It also has an acoustically isolated midrange chamber for minimizing distortions. The gadget has a sound pressure level of 100 dB+. It comes with a 60-day risk free satisfaction guarantee and a warranty of 1 year.
