The Mission LX-5 is a three-way design.
Its midrange and mid/bass drivers use cones manufactured from an advanced fibre formulation, impregnated to reduce hygroscopy as well as being very stiff for their mass, with excellent self-damping. With the use of a powerful ferrite magnet, the magnetic field is directed precisely within the area of voice coil excursion, enabling an ultra-linear performance which minimises colouration.
While high performance mid/bass and treble units are the foundation of a great sounding speaker, if the speaker cabinet is not correctly reinforced it can be an unruly source of unwanted noise. To prevent this, MIssion engineers carried out extensive research and development to ensure internal cabinet strength, 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.
