Celebrating 40 years of audio expertise, Mission has introduced the new QX series – a range that combines a beautiful design with an astounding performance. Perfect for use within both hi-fi and home cinema setups, the new QX series speakers will impress not only with the sound they can produce but the affordable price tag that comes attached. The whole range has undergone a complete redesign, offering advanced technologies and enduring extensive, exacting listening tests to evolve into a loudspeaker that will deliver an exciting and dynamic performance over all types of music or movie soundtracks.
The Design Concept
QX series was designed to marry advanced engineering with a highly attractive and unique design that lets the speakers fit perfectly into the modern home. The front panel appearance hints at the advanced technology inside the speakers whilst presenting an attractive face to the listener.
Reverse Geometry Driven Design
Mission QX series utilizes Mission’s classic IDG (Inverted Driver Geometry) driver format. By positioning the treble unit below the bass/midrange driver, the length of the path is equalized so the sound waves coincide at the listener’s head height. This principle improves ‘time alignment’.
New "Ring Dome" Treble Unit
New ‘ring dome’ treble unit offers high levels of musical detail with low distortion - the usual dome cavitation effects are completely avoided
Dual ring radiator – Mission’s exclusive ‘ring dome’ utilizes a woven, textile material formed in a double ring arrangement. The combination of textile dome and multi-ring surround applied optimum stiffness to the maximum radiating area.
Twin rear cavity non-reflecting design – back pressure from the diaphragm is vented to a twin rear cavity, reducing resonance and maintaining a wide operating bandwidth.
Bass Drivers Feature Mission DiaDrive System
Natural midrange quality with superb bass transient impact is provided by a seam-free curvilinear cone formulated from a mixture of soft pulp and acrylic fibre specially designed for midrange clarity and lucidity.
DiaDrive Twin Cone Design
Backing the curvilinear front cone is a stiff, conical support with increased area of contact with the voice coil for outstanding transient impact.
The drive unit surround and fixing screws are cleverly concealed behind this unique trim design giving a highly technical look to the front face of the speaker.
Aluminium Top Plate
The inclusion of aluminium top and bottom plates to the cabinet not only gives an attractive, high-tech appearance to the speakers but also enhances sound quality. The added mass and stiffness reduces resonance from the cabinet walls, lowering colouration and distortion.
Ribbon-like Slot Port Design
The new slot port design features ribs to enhance airflow and avoid the "chuffing" so often heard from bass-reflex ports. The result is enhanced low-frequency performance with lower distortion.
Arc Shaped Cabinet Corners
The semi-circular arc shape of the cabinet corners smooths diffraction from the drive units, yielding better power distribution into the room
- Advanced DiaDrive cone system - front inverted dome cone delivers smooth response
- Oversized magnet motor system offers high sensitivity for maximum dynamic impact from any amplifier
- New 'ring dome' treble unit offers high levels of musical detail with low distortion
- Slot port is profiled to reduce 'chuffing' distortion, yielding accurate bass performance
- Carefully crafted acoustic crossover slopes achieve perfect integration between the drivers for a seamless performance
- The crossover uses laminated iron core bass coil, audiophile standard polypropylene capacitors, spaced on the PCD to avoid magnetic field interaction
