Mission QX Speaker Range Announced
Mission is to launch an all-new speaker range this autumn, the QX range that covers both hi-fi and AV set-ups.
Five core hi-fi models – 2 bookshelf designs and 3 floorstanding speakers – are joined in the Mission QX range by a dedicated centre speaker, two-way surround speaker and a powerful subwoofer.
Mission QX range technology highlights
• Advanced DiaDrive cone system - front inverted dome cone designed to deliver ansmooth response, driven by secondary sub cone to transfer maximum transient impact from the motor system
• Oversized magnet motor system offers high sensitivity for maximum dynamic impact from any amplifier
• New ‘ring dome’ treble unit offers high levels of musical detail with low distortion - the usual dome cavitation effects are avoided.
• Slot port is profiled to reduce ‘chuffing’ distortion, yielding accurate bass performance
• Acoustic crossover slopes claimed to achieve perfect integration between the drivers
• Crossover uses laminated iron core bass coil, audiophile standard polypropylene capacitors, spaced on the PCB to avoid magnetic field interaction
The QX-1, QX-2, QX-3 and QX-4 are two-way designs, combining the new 38mm Mission ring-dome tweeter with one mid/bass driver in the QX-1 (130mm driver) and QX-2, (150mm driver) and two mid/bass drivers in the QX-3 (130mm drivers), QX-4 (150mm drivers) and QX-C (130mm drivers). The QX-5 is a three-way design, with a 150mm midrange driver and 150mm bass driver joining the 38mm tweeter.
The QX-S, meanwhile, is a two-way surround speaker design with two 130mm mid/bass drivers and twin 38mm tweeters.
The range is rounded out by the QX-12 Subwoofer, which as its name suggests has a 12-inch (300mm) driver. It is a 300W design.
