Mission QX-C MKII Centre Speaker
The Mission QX-C MKII Centre Speaker is a 2-way centre loudspeaker with two 5″ (135mm) bass drivers and a ring dome treble unit.
As per all Mission speaker concepts, the process of listening, listening and more listening is the key to improvement. With the added beneﬁt of modern speaker design tools, such as computer-aided optimisation technology, crossover modelling, and laser interferometry, Mission engineers also spent much time ﬁne tuning the crossovers, components, materials, and construction.
Much like the now-established and equally class-leading Mission LX MKII series, the Mission QX-C MKII series takes an already phenomenal loudspeaker solution but reﬁnes it, optimises it, and brings even more vibrancy, ﬁnesse, and class, through a process of evolution, not revolution.
QX MKII Drivers
An improved acrylic ﬁbre cone material has been chosen for the QX MKII drivers. By it’s very nature, acrylic ﬁbre is hard-wearing but offers a delicate appearance, in contrast of harsh driver materials seen in typical speakers of this price class. Implemented into the Mission DiaDrive System, the acrylic ﬁbre brings natural mids and exceptional lucidity. The seam-free curvilinear design has conical support with an increased area of contact with the voice coil. This highly efﬁcient and uncompromising system means the QX MKII series will excel in terms of timing, with outstanding transient impact.
New look aluminium top plate
Aesthetically, the Mission QX-C MKII series brings new Lux Black and Lux White matte ﬁnishes to the series, with the classic walnut pearl option. The new colour-coordinated aluminium top plate is more than just a visual ‘cherry-on-the-cake’; the added rigidity and support offered by this sturdy but stylish addition further enhance the performance of the precision-engineered cabinets of this stand-out loudspeaker series.
Ring of Fire
Overcoming problems inherent in the physics of conventional domes, the ‘ring dome’ centre is ﬁxed with a distinct and visible ‘phase plug’. This design enables extended HF reproduction by preventing cancellation across the centre axis of high-frequency waves produced near the centre of the diaphragm. The resonance experienced by traditional domes means that, when they approach high energy, HF performance inevitably induces distortion. Managing this phenomenon inevitably reduces the HF capabilities in traditional domes, whereas the ‘ring dome’ is all but exempt from this complication. The result is a better controlled and much more consistent behaviour from 10kHz to 20kHz, and way, way above! Transient performance is dramatically improved, as is musical detailing, particularly of instrument overtones and harmonics.
Inverted Drive Geometry
Maintaining the basis of QX styling, the Mission QX-C MKII is conﬁgured in the classic Mission IDG (Inverted Driver Geometry) 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’.
QX MKII also takes the ground-breaking serrated driver surrounds to a new level. More than just a technical appearance or pretty design touch, the surrounds have been improved by way of detailed air-ﬂow analysis and precise measurement. The new-look QX MKII surrounds help scatter reﬂections and reduce airﬂow interference to improve the silky smooth performance of the drivers and ports.

Using this Center speaker with Qx-2 pair and the movie experience is too good. Best Center channel speaker with best selling price. Previously used pioneer Andrew jones setup but with the missions, movie watching is so involving by their luxurious, musical sound quality.
The speakers look so trendy and modern so u don’t have to compromise with their aesthetics.
