Exceptional sound at affordable prices is the goal for the all-new LX-2 and LX-3 entry-level speakers
Budget two-way speakers the LX-2 and LX-3 (shown) are the debut models from Mission’s latest entry-level loudspeaker range, the LX Series. Despite their affordable price tags, Mission informs us that the new models have been designed to deliver compelling musicality. For the LX Series the company has produced a tweeter with a neodymium magnet (selected for maximum magnetic force in such a small space) and a 25mm microfibre dome. This is partnered with the 130mm mid/bass driver unit (one in the case of the LX-2 and two for the LX-3), sporting cones fashioned from an advanced fibre formulation apparently selected for its superior self damping and excellent stiffness. The standmount LX-2 has a claimed sensitivity of 86.5dB and a price tag of £200, while the floorstanding LX-3 claims 89.5dB and costs £400. Both models will initially be available in black, with further colour options to follow. A smaller standmount (LX-1) and two larger floorstanders (LX-4 and LX-5)will join the series in the summer.
