    Vivid G2 S2 Review

    SoundStage! Hi-Fi | SoundStageHiFi.com - Vivid Audio Giya G2 Series 2 Loudspeakers

    “Because the woofers are mounted back to back and move in phase, their forces, as they simultaneously move out and in, are equal and in opposite directions. As a result, any forces produced by either driver are largely canceled out, and thus are not transferred to the cabinet, as they would be in a more conventional speaker with all driver(s) mounted on the front baffle.”

    I have always been impressed when I have heard Vivid at shows. I think the force cancelling driver layout makes tremendous sense. This is the same setup that is used on my Blade 2's and is now being used by a number of subwoofer manufacturers. Makes a lot of sense.
