Aiwa CX-NHG5MD. XR-HG5MD is written on the main body.

Main Features
* Built-in Subwoofer System and Multi-Amplifier System
The built-in subwoofer speaker system enhances low-range sound, because low-frequency signals are transmitted from a separate amplifier and reproduced in a separate subwoofer cavity in the speaker cabinet. The result is clearer, richer bass reproduction than conventional bass-reflex systems, without affecting mid- to high-range signals.

The XR-HG5MD is equipped with four power amplifiers - two separate left/right circuits for low-range and mid-and high-range signals. (Low-range circuit: 45W/channel, mid-and high-range circuit: 15W/channel). The multi-amplifier system offers two main improvements over conventional systems with only left/right amplifiers: less interference between low- and high-range signals, and more precise filter characteristics, which result in improved reproduction of low-, mid- and high-frequency ranges. The XR-HG5MD also features a 3-way speaker system (Low-range circuit: subwoofer, mid-and high-range circuit: full-range loudspeaker and supertweeter).
