SHU-2 Sidewood is a two-way, closed construction, based on components of the Polish brand STX. Two loudspeakers, mid-mid-range and a tweeter connected with a crossover with a 12/8/8 characteristic, create a system with a total power of 80W.
Monitors with an internal volume of 27 liters, thanks to the transducers used, generate a clean, warm and pleasant sound, with low-reaching bass. At the same time, they retain a relatively high level of detail, which is most noticeable when listening to music such as jazz or chamber or symphonic music, where every sound from individual instruments is important.
MDF boards were used as the basic raw material for the construction of the enclosures. The rear, detachable panel has gold-plated terminals that accommodate most speaker cable mounts. There is one incomplete partition in the middle between the speakers. The whole is finished with a structural, matte black polyurethane varnish.
The sides, columns and legs are made of solid exotic wood - Asian Merbau, and have been hand-finished with a multi-layer polish based on natural Indian shellac. 2 cm corrugated acoustic foam with increased density was used to dampen the enclosures.
