Product Watch: Monsoon Flat Panel Speaker Systems The Rainy Season Has Arrived!
So you just bought a new G4 system complete with that gorgeous new 22" flat panel display. If you are looking for a speaker system that matches your G4 on both style and performance fronts, the folks at Monsoon have two offerings that they say will please both your eyes and your ears. The Monsoon flat panel speakers (which will work on any Mac with a standard sound out port by the way) use a proprietary technology called Planar Focus and a process called interaural crosstalk cancellation to create the sensation that the sound is originating from a source other than the speakers. 3D sound is becoming increasingly popular in games as well as multimedia applications. Sound from the dipolar satellite speakers is dispersed in a figure 8 pattern helping reduce or eliminate undesirable reflections from your monitor or work surfaces. The Monsoon speakers achieve their slender form by forgoing the traditional cone shaped speaker in favor of a mylar diaphragm that is suspended between rows of magnets. The mylar is imprinted with conductive strips that react to the magnetic fields generated by these rows when current is passed through the magnets. Below are the specs for each speaker system as well as links to online reviews.
