SST/SUR is a combination of SST and SUR in one speaker

  • Uses a switch on the crossover cover to select between SST or SUR

Absolute best sonic performance at all price points

  • Designed using state-of-the-art computer modeling software to vastly improve magnetic field and suspension linearity for consistent sonic performance at any SPL for best-in-class performance

Latest high-tech driver and tweeter material technology

  • Improved low frequency performance
  • Improved driver cone materials
  • Low diffraction driver design
  • Pivoting woofers on VP62R, VP66R and VP86R
  • Chambered midrange and tweeter design on all models

The chambered tweeter design does the following

  • Lowers the resonance frequency of the tweeter
  • Allows for a lower crossover frequency to the woofer
  • Reduces the back pressure on the tweeter dome
  • Reduces the distortion of the tweeter near the crossover frequency

Easier to install

  • Easier to access Roto-Lock® screws
