Dont judge a speaker by its size! The Dayton Audio B452 4-1/2" bookshelf speaker is the smallest in the Dayton Audio "52" family, but the sound is big! A newly-designed 4-1/2" polypropylene cone woofer with 4-layer voice coil achieves excellent balance and listenability when combined with the 5/8" ferrofluid-cooled polycarbonate tweeter, for surprisingly rich, detailed sound from a small, affordable speaker. While other cheap speakers use plastic enclosure parts to cut costs, the inexpensive B452 uses a fully-wooden cabinet that minimizes resonance and enhances warmth without sacrificing clarity.

The B452 bookshelf speaker fits into a space only 5.5" wide and less than 6" deep, making it the perfect choice for desktop listening, or compact surround speakers in a home theater surround-sound system. A built-in keyhole wall hanger bracket makes it a breeze to wall-mount the B452 in any desired location. For a room-filling listening experience with deeper bass that rivals larger full-sized speakers, the B452 speaker also pairs perfectly with any of the excellent Dayton Audio powered subwoofers.

Anywhere you enjoy music, the balanced sound of the B452 adds a new dimension of affordable enjoyment. An instant classic!

Specifications: • Woofer: 4-1/2" polypropylene cone w/ 4-layer coil • Tweeter: 5/8" polycarbonate dome w/ ferrofluid cooling
