1.volume

9598.77cm³

24628.6cm³

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.
4.weather-sealed (splashproof)

The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
6.is dustproof and water-resistant
