It have long throw woofers to make alot of bass too plus of cource the neo magnets. I think there are other things that makes this speakers great for it's small size too.
There are compact, bookshelf-sized speakers costing $2K - $5K from Sonus Faber, B&W and others, so I don't know why you're getting so excited by $400 speakers. But in any case, why in the world would you care about the magnets, unless you're building DIY speakers (and in that case, you're in the wrong forum)?
There is no sound that's generated by, or which passes through, the magnets. They're just there to provide a magnetic field which causes the coils to move, when the signal passes through the coils. In headphones, where space/size is critical, it's best to use magnets with a strong field for their size. But even bookshelf-sized speakers have plenty of room for any magnets they want.
