Description of the Mission 2-way Floorstanding Speaker:
New Tweeter Units:
High-frequency drive units require extremely consistent parts and manufacturing in order to be selected for a Mission speaker.
Given the tiny moving masses involved, one micro-drop extra of high-tech adhesive can destroy the balance of the design, thus affecting sensitivity and frequency response.
For the Mission 2-way Floorstanding Speaker, Mission has meticulously designed a tweeter with a neodymium magnet, selected for maximum magnetic force in a small space.
And a 25mm microfibre dome, chosen for its repeatability and consistency in manufacture.
It delivers sweetly incisive upper frequencies, crisp and detailed but never harsh.
Both the LX-2 and LX-3 are two-way designs, combining the 25mm tweeter with one 130mm mid/bass drive unit in the LX-2, and two such units in the LX-3.
These drivers sports cones fashioned from an advanced fibre formulation.
Selected for their reduced susceptibility to hygroscopy as well as being very stiff for its mass with excellent self-damping.
A high-strength ferrite magnet ensures that the magnetic field is directed precisely within the area of voice coil excursion, enabling an ultra-linear performance that minimizes coloration.
The Mission 2-way Floorstanding Speaker uses a 4th order (24dB per octave acoustic) Linkwitz-Riley crossover network, developed through a combination of advanced computer modeling expertise and many hours of listening tests.
It is particularly notable for its ability to balance excellent off-axis performance with a flatter on-axis result.
The cabinet is as critical as the drive units and crossover to the overall performance of any loudspeaker system.
Designing an effective low-cost box is tricky, as the budget dictates that the designer can’t use expensive materials or high mass to create an inert structure.
With the help of 3D Computer-Aided Design, finite element analysis, and laser interferometry, coupled with a great deal of experience.
A budget cabinet can be designed that delivers better rigidity with lower radiated noise than most designers would believe achievable at such low material cost.
