24628.6cm³

A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.
3.control panel placed on a device
Harman Kardon Citation 200
JBL Boombox
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)
Harman Kardon Citation 200
JBL Boombox
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
Harman Kardon Citation 200

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.
7.has a neodymium magnet

JBL Boombox
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
8.has a detachable cable

9.weight

2.85kg

20000Hz
