Another remarkable addition that is newer to this powerful speaker is the powerful motor which drives the diaphragm a full 20 mm.
The Technology Lies Within The Apple A8 Chip:
This new sensation also uses an advanced algorithm that continuously analyzes the music & dynamically tunes the lower frequencies for delivering smoother & distortion-free sound quality. The speaker includes a unique array of seven beamforming tweeters which precisely focus the sound to particular angles from every narrow beam to true consistent 360º audio. This type of design allows it to be placed anywhere within the living room irrespective of the center location for creating an immersive sense of space through the tweeters.
Now behind the most complex audio innovations there lies the powerful Apple-designed A8 chip that acts as the brain for the HomePod. It has also fastened the buffering time than the real time woofer mechanics.
