The Mission LX-5 Floorstanding Speaker are smart, practical and affordable, sporting a sharp, classic but modern look in keeping with Mission’s customary design focus. Above all, they communicate music with engaging energy and detail, bringing performances to life with all the vibrancy and finesse one expects of Mission speakers.
The LX-5 is a three-way design. The 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 that minimises colouration.
While high performance mid/bass and treble units are the foundation of a great sounding speaker, if the cabinet is not properly reinforced it can be an unruly source of unwanted noise. To prevent this, extensive research and development was carried out by the designers of Mission to ensure internal cabinet robustness, 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.
