The British manufacturer Mission presented with the current LX MKII series a new incarnation of its popular LX speaker series, consisting of a total of nine different boxes for numerous purposes.
Mission LX MKII: Concept and technology
Three Floorstanding loudspeakers (LX-4 to LX-6 MKII), three Compact boxes (LX-1 to LX-3 MKII), two Center speaker (LX-C1 and LX-C2 MKII) as well as a Surround ceiling spotlights (LX-C3D MKII) – the new Mission-LX-MKII loudspeaker series covers a wide range of applications. With the exception of the largest floor-standing model, the LX-6 MKII, a three-way system, all other loudspeakers in the series work on the two-way principle.
A so-called comes with all models DiaDrive midbass chassis is used, whose construction with oversized ferrite magnet and a special diaphragm, which is connected to the voice coil via a secondary cone, enables a uniform drive even with large deflections of the diaphragm as well as discoloration-free transient reproduction, according to Mission. For the tweeter, the British rely on a 25-millimeter dome, the membrane of which is made of a microfiber material that is as light as it is stiff. The base plate of the tweeter chassis, which has a special hole pattern, is intended to ensure even radiation.
Several models in the series are also characterized by the fact that the bass-midrange speaker was placed above and not below the tweeter, which is expected to improve timing.
