There’s also an Omni-diffuser that spreads sound throughout the room in every direction. Additionally, a dual passive radiator to produce deep bass.
Meanwhile, the speaker’s overlapping beam tweeters form a wavefront that goes upward, which delivers sound vertically. This helps fill the space with ambient room-filling sound, making sure that the RA3000 hits the sweet spot anywhere in the room.
