The sub-woofer is an inverted glass dome, and a fresnel lens from a rail-car.
"In Mundania, a speaker system-that is, something that makes sounds-has a big cone called a woofer, and a small cone called a tweeter, and a middle cone called a midrange.
A woofer is the electro dynamic driver which uses a cone, surrounded by a magnetic field, and a voice coil to drive.
As near as I can tell from this, the the satellites are each 4-ohm, 4w speakers and the woofer is a 4-ohm, 14w speaker (Not completely sure - tell me if i'm wrong).
I would even go as far as say that if you got rid of the "woofer" at the bottom of the unit, and opted for a larger cell unit into the chassis structure, you would make a lot more dent in the mobility market, but again, this probably isn't what it's marketed for, nor what people will be buying it for.
Each speaker has a 3-way system consisted of a woofer, a full-range driver and a tweeter.
Go for a sub woofer and make sure you got the speakers arranged in the acoustically right fashion so that the sound is not being disturbed.
If it makes you feel any better, I recently got rid of my sub-woofer/leg rest and i keep going to put my feet up.
Zero-to-60 speed is set to 3.4 seconds--which is even more impressive considering the leather seats, 12-inch woofer, DVD/navigation system and rise-away doors weighing it down.
The results are occasionally funny – especially the more you know the film – but what's remarkable is how astoundingly forgettable a large percentage of the movies we see like, say, Tom Hanks woofer Turner & Hooch actually are.
