The 2-inch aluminum cone provides detailed sound that complements the frequency spectrum of the acoustic lens. The midrange is thereby protected from a speaker cover that is made from high quality aluminum surface. The pattern of the openings on the cover has been designed to match the look of the lens and also enables the ideal exit of the sound.
