The Alcyone 2 satellite is fitted with a wide bandwith high-efficiency driver designed in the Cabasse Acoustic Centre in France - especially for the small spherical Alcyone enclosure.

So the Alcyone 2 IC's will sound amazing with opera, jazz festival, rock concert, or movies.
The Alcyone 2 IC's are designed to used with Cabasse's Santorin sub-woofers (in-wall or free standing) to give you the synergy and sound quality that only Cabasse can deliver.
