Description of the Mission ZX-4 Floorstanding Speaker Showroom Demo:
The ZX Series is the latest in a long line of distinguished and revered Mission loudspeakers and joins more recent Award winning products.
The Mission ZX-4 Floorstanding Speaker represents the most technologically advanced loudspeakers in the Mission family, with a distinct ID that will complement the ﬁnest electronics and décor.
The Mission ZX-4 Floorstanding Speaker incorporates purpose designed bass driver cones, precision engineered motor systems, advanced treble units and more.
As ever with Mission products; ‘Music is the Master, Technology is the Slave’. No compromise.
Mission ZX-4 Floorstanding Speaker is smart, practical and affordable, sporting a sharp, classic but modern look in keeping with Mission’s customary design focus.
Above all, they communicate music with engaging energy and detail, bringing performances to life with all the vibrancy and finesse one expects of Mission speakers.
The Mission ZX-4 Floorstanding Speaker is a two-way design, combining the 25mm Mission tweeter with two mid/bass drivers.
The Mission ZX-4 Floorstanding Speaker positions the tweeter between the twin mid/bass drivers in a ‘D’Appolito’ configuration, rather than above both drivers in conventional fashion, similarly to the LX3.
While high performance mid/bass and treble units are the foundation of a great sounding speaker if the cabinet is not properly reinforced it can be an unruly source of unwanted noise.
To prevent this, extensive research and development were carried out by the designers of Mission to ensure internal cabinet robustness, eliminating any unwanted cabinet resonances and vibrations.
Using a combination of CAD analysis, a lot of experimentation and extensive listening tests, the cabinet within each speaker has been braced at key points which means that the full frequency range is clear and detailed.
New ring dome treble unit:
The Mission ZX-4 Floorstanding Speaker Ring Dome treble unit overcomes the problems inherent in conventional domes.
With this technology the centre of the dome is ﬁxed and the voice coil attached part of the way across the dome.
The dome is formed into two rings, with the voice coil in the centre so that it can drive the dome more accurately and efﬁciently
The result is lower distortion and superior performance, at frequencies up to 30 kHz and beyond.
Transient performance is dramatically improved, as is musical detailing, particularly of instrument overtones and harmonics
New diadrive bass /Midrange unit:
Mission’s DiaDrive bass unit has an advanced aluminum matrix cone and is now vented to remove trapped air behind the diaphragm.
Thus reducing resonance and allowing a clearer midrange performance beyond 3kHz. In Mission ZX-4 Floorstanding Speaker the driver surround is covered by a vented cover that controls the spurious output from the diaphragm edge.
Again improving midrange clarity Matching ‘serrations’ are built into the ﬂare of the slot port.
High pressure airﬂow is streamlined from the port exit whilst the asymmetric design breaks up the ‘chufﬁng’ distortion normally heard from circular ports
New cabinet / Driver bracing system:
Mission ZX-4 Floorstanding Speaker bass/midrange units now feature, as standard, over-size magnet systems to deliver the punch and transient attack that feature in modern recordings.
To improve the mechanical integrity of these magnet systems, special bracing methods have been developed to ensure that the bass diaphragms respond accurately to the musical waveform.
Bass output is now thrillingly dynamic with superior detailing and extension.
Fine tuned crossover performance:
Mission’s Inverted Driver Geometry (IDG) of bass/midrange and treble units has been applied to equalize acoustic path lengths.
IAG’s Head of Acoustic Design, Peter Comeau, has worked tirelessly to ensure a seamless integration between the drive units, so the speaker behaves as one music making system.
Designed to stand out head and shoulders above the competition, the Mission ZX range oozes luxury in appealing gloss black and gloss white ﬁnishes.
Carefully selected trims and driver materials do more than catch the eye and complement the technology at play. The Mission ZX-4 Floorstanding Speaker has an all-inclusive design that continues to tell the story of the music, not just deliver hi-ﬁ sound
