The supertweeter is equipped with an inch Korean Hanji paper cone , and a two-inch titanium dome driver works on the HF.

The low-frequency range in the SeaWave AM45 loudspeakers is assigned to the bass drivers with a diameter of 8 and 11 inches, enclosed in a separate housing made of composite plastic PEP light . In terms of density, this material surpasses the silumin (an alloy of aluminum and silicon) AC4C , from which the bass section is made in another model of SeaWave Plotinus speakers .

According to the developers from SeaWave Acoustics , they managed to solve typical problems of both multi-band and horn systems, as evidenced, for example, by the uniformity of the frequency response – the range from 20 Hz to 35 kHz the SeaWave AM45 speakers reproduce with unevenness of only ± 2 dB at a sensitivity of 94 dB. Internal wiring is made of 6N oxygen-free copper cables , connected using non-solder technology without soldering.
