IS-48 uses a 3-section column design.  Two of the 3 columns are used for the internal LED lighting.  The third column houses 4 x Full Range drivers.  The columns connect directly with inbuilt connectors.  Easy to set up – easy to pack away!


The “base” of the system (see what we did there?) is the 8.0″ active subwoofer.  Along with providing the bass, it houses the power amplifiers and mixer control for the system.  The columns connect directly to the top of this subwoofer meaning that no cables are required. 


Bluetooth connection is simple.  Just pair your mobile device with a single IS-48.

For a stereo system using 2 units of IS-48, the TWS mode allows for wireless stereo pairing.

Talking of wireless control… The IS-48 comes with a handy IR remote control too giving control over the internal media centre.
