Dual-Layer IMX (Injection Molded Matrix) Aramid/Basalt Fiber Composite Cone
To create new D-Series speakers, Pioneer developed the industry’s first basalt fiber made from natural rock interwoven w/aramid fiber.
Used in the surface layer, this Aramid/Basalt Fiber material is highly rigid & better absorbent, enhancing stability & maintaining integrity throughout a wide temperature range.
Rear Chamber Tweeter Enclosure
D-Series speakers feature an exclusive rear chamber tweeter enclosure that we first used in our famed PRS speakers.
It extends mid-range frequency for improved vocal imaging & staging.
The built-in -12dB/Octave HPF & LPF crossover improves the transition from mid to high frequency, for a smoother mid-range to tweeter response.
Audiophile-grade capacitors & inductors are used, & all components are encased in a clear acrylic cover for protection.
