Mission QX-S Series QX-3 Loudspeakers
Mission QX-3 Speakers are the first floor-standing speaker models in the new QX range, featuring a two-way design and dual 5" long fibre composite cone bass drivers coupled with a 1.5" textile ring dome treble driver.
Drawing on over four decades of audio experience, Mission’s all new QX speaker range boasts stunning aesthetics and extraordinary performance granting remarkable value in either a hi-fi or AV system. Complex new designs and exacting, lengthy listening tests have produced a speaker that contributes a thrilling and dramatic performance, regardless of your choice of music or movies.
The Design Concept
QX series was conceptualised to fuse sophisticated engineering with a greatly attractive and distinguishable design that allows the speakers to fit seamlessly into the contemporary home. The look of the front panel suggests the advanced technology inside whilst presenting a stunning visual to the listener. Five core hi-fi models; 2 bookshelf designs and 3 floor standing speakers are joined in the Mission QX range by a dedicated centre speaker, two-way surround speaker and selection of subwoofers.
Reverse Geometry Driven
Mission QX series utilises Mission’s classic IDG (Inverted Driver Geometry) driver format. By positioning the treble unit below the bass/midrange driver, the length of path is equalised so the sound waves coincide at the listener’s head height. This principle improves ‘time alignment’.
Dual ring radiator
Mission’s exclusive ‘ring dome’ utilises a woven, textile material formed in a double ring arrangement. The combination of textile dome and multi-ring surround applied optimum stiffness to the maximum radiating area. New ‘ring dome’ treble unit offers high levels of musical detail with low distortion - the usual dome cavitation effects are completely avoided
Mission DiaDrive system
Twin rear cavity non-reflecting design vents back pressure from the diaphragm to a twin rear cavity, reducing resonance and maintaining a wide operating bandwidth. Natural midrange quality with superb bass transient impact is provided by a seam-free curvilinear cone formulated from a mixture of soft pulp and acrylic fiber specially designed for midrange clarity and lucidity.
DiaDrive Twin Cone Design
Backing the curvilinear front cone is a stiff, conical support with increased area of contact with the voice coil for outstanding transient impact. The drive unit surround and fixing screws are cleverly concealed behind the unique comb-tooth trim design giving a highly technical look to the front face of the speaker.
Aluminium Top Plate
The inclusion of aluminium top and bottom plates to the cabinet not only gives an attractive, high tech appearance to the speakers but also enhances sound quality. The added mass and stiffness reduces resonance from the cabinet walls, lowering colouration and distortion.
Ribbon-Like Slot Port
The new slot port design features ribs to enhance airflow and avoid the 'chuffing' so often heard from bass-reflex ports. The result is enhanced low-frequency performance with lower distortion.
Mission brings its 40 years of audio expertise to this exciting new QX speaker range which offers many additional features making these speakers an excellent choice for all levels of hi-fi and home cinema integration. Advanced DiaDrive cone system features a front inverted dome cone which delivers smooth response, driven by secondary sub cone to transfer maximum transient impact from the motor system.
