Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.

Amazon Echo Dot
A passive radiator is a type of driver (speaker) that doesn't have a voice coil and a magnet. The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep bass tones.
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
