" (Amplitude Modification Device) that acts as a heat sink A material that absorbs heat. Typically made of aluminum, heat sinks are widely used in amplifiers and other electronic devices that build up heat. Small heat sinks are the most economical method for cooling microprocessors and other chips.  to draw heat away from the woofer's motor assembly to aid high power handling and enhance reliability. This device also improves performance by delivering a smooth, flat frequency response over the entire audible range of the driver. The tweeter in all three models is Boston's exclusive 1" Kortec(TM) soft dome model. This advanced design provides an extremely smooth response, high power handling and exceptional reliability. Rather than using a generic crossover design for all three models, each system-specific crossover is perfectly matched to each set of components to provide the smoothest possible crossover curve to blend the components together seamlessly. A plug-in module can be added to this crossover to facilitate the optional tweeter system upgrade.
