Mission LX-C1 MKII Centre Speaker
The LX-C1 MKII uses a 25mm microfiber dome tweeter to produce crisp and detailed high frequencies, with a neodymium magnet for maximum magnetic force in a small space. The tweeter is lightweight, with impressive transient attack for all the high frequencies.
The two 4 inch bass drivers featured on the LX-C1 MKII are a new version of the DiaDrive from Mission, using a seamless curvilinear diaphragm instead of a cone and hub cap. The drivers on the LX-C1 MKII speaker are constructed from an advanced dual-layer fibre formulation, which exhibits excellent self-damping and has a very high stiffness to mass ratio. A high strength ferrite magnet ensures the magnetic is directed precisely within the voice coil, for an ultra-linear excursion and a focused performance. The bass drivers use comb-tooth separations around the driver to help scatter interfering reflections. This helps the driver produce a smoother frequency response with less resonance.
For the MKII version of the LX Series, Mission has updated the crossover to produce a smoother performance from the speaker, with a notable improvement on off-axis balance. To aid timing and rhythm, the LX series speaker use Mission’s inverted driver geometry, placing the midrange driver above the tweeter. The wavelengths from the woofers and tweeters coincide at the listener’s head height.
For the cabinet of the LX-C1 MKII speaker, internal damping has been widely used, to reduce midrange colouration and improve bass response. Using Computer-aided design, the LX-C1 MKII speaker cabinets have improved rigidity with less unwanted resonance. The speaker is available in three finishes of matte black, white or walnut.
