With the aid of sophisticated modelling tools and software, we’ve been able to maximise the performance of the series using the most modern technology available. Yet Mission’s original slogan, ‘Music is the master, Technology is the slave’, has never been more apt. Ultimately although it’s possible to design a loudspeaker that measures badly, but still sounds good to most. It tends to be very room dependent and that is not our way. Great sound and good measurements keep us very happy. - Whichever Mission ZX speaker you select, you’ll want to explore your whole music collection all over again.
RING DOME TREBLE UNIT
Mission’s Ring Dome treble unit overcomes the problems inherent in conventional domes. With this technology, the centre of the dome is fixed and 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
DIADRIVE BASS/MIDRANGE UNIT
Mission’s DiaDrive bass unit has an advanced aluminium matrix cone and is now vented to remove trapped air behind the diaphragm, thus reducing resonance and allowing a clearer midrange performance to beyond 3kHz.
In ZX the driver surround is covered by a vented cover which 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.
