Hello. I'd say I'm getting into intermediate playing level, but I'm very much a beginner in all things theory and as testament to that there's something very simple that's bothering me. Simply put, I have a Digital Keyboard Yamaha PSR E343 and I don'

The ES6 has a total of 4 tweeters and 2 oval woofers. I liked the console sound of the on board speaker system in the 6. I don't have personal experience with the 7's sound, which has a total of 2 speakers.
