The Ktêma began with the idea of the proscenium—the center of a theatrical stage where much of the action takes place. The focus of attention is on the soloist, and the surrounding space, which includes the rest of the musical ensemble, arises from and develops around that point. This idea is embodied in the Ktêma's design. Mounted high on the front of the Ktêma is a 1-inch soft-dome tweeter and two 4-inch midrange drivers. The curved sides of the cabinet are concave, while the back surface, which holds two 9-inch metal-cone woofers near the bottom, is convex. This unusual design is intended to focus attention on the mid-high range while the bass fills the surrounding space.
