“The AFI-205 is designed for applications that do not allowfor placement of separate subwoofers,” said Apogee director ofengineering Barry Grzebik. “Because the Apogee AFI-205 does notrequire a separate subwoofer, it’s an ideal single-productsolution for restaurants, bars, retail spaces or any application wherespace is restricted.”

A 10-inch (254mm) internal woofer allows the AFI-205 to providefull, rich low-frequency response, down to 44 Hz. A control on theunit’s rear adjusts the overall level of the low frequencies foroptimum balance in free-field or half-space (wall-mount) applications.The AFI-205 driver complement also features dual Apogee 5.25-inch(134mm) mid-frequency drivers, and dual Apogee 1-inch (25mm) anodizedaluminum dome tweeters.
