The front panel is a black speaker grille that covers the cabinet inside, which is comprised of two speakers and two bass radiators powered by a Class D amplifier and speakerphone mic, while a similar rear panel covers passive radiators that provide an added sense of low-end response.
On the bottom, Cambridge Audio stuck a cream colored rubber pad to prevent slipping on uneven or slick surfaces. The top panel is comprised of par-for-the-course buttons, like volume control, Bluetooth discovery, power, NFC pairing and call.
