Design

1.volume

3622.19cm³

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.
4.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Yamaha MusicCast 20
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.
When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
7.has a detachable cable
Yamaha MusicCast 20
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.

Sound quality

2.has a subwoofer
Yamaha MusicCast 20

3.Has a passive radiator
Yamaha MusicCast 20
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.
Audio output power is based on the number of speakers and their power in watts. High audio output power results in loud, clear sounds.
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
6.has a magnetic shielding
Yamaha MusicCast 20
A magnetic shielding limits the coupling of a magnetic field between two devices. The purpose is to prevent magnetic fields from interfering with electrical devices and avoid distortion (of TV, monitors, hard drives etc.).
