  • Page 41 When choosing speakers, it is important to consider the strucutre or wood quality of the building or the interior. As much as possible, Panasonic speakers have been designed to harmonize with a variety of interiors. Because building interiors tend to be predominantly white, we have used it as the standard underlying tone.
