Mission LX-3D MKII Surround Speaker (Pair)
Ooberpad presents Mission LX-3D MKII Surround Speaker (Pair). The LX-3D MKII is a top-of-the-line surround speaker that can be wall-mounted or sited on top of the floor-standing models as an upward-firing effects speaker. Mission notches up its award-winning LX loudspeaker range with a wide array of improvements, comprising technology trickled down from the QX Series. Since its inception in 1977, globally renowned British loudspeaker manufacturer Mission has been famous for delivering stunning musicality at cost-effective prices. The company’s LX Series continued this legacy when it launched in 2016, earning rave reviews and a stately collection of awards in the UK and around the world. Four years on and Mission is ready to unlock a new, improved LX range – the LX MkII Series. The new line-up leverages design elements evolved from the upmarket QX Series to build on the award-winning formula of the first-generation LX speakers, exhibiting a range of improvements that span the drive units, crossover and cabinet. With enhanced midrange and treble clarity and improved resolution of micro-dynamics, the Mission LX MkII Series packs a punch with an even more captivating audio experience.

Benefits of Mission LX-3D MKII Surround Speaker:
Packs a Punch with Magnificent Sonic Expression
The LX-3D MKII is a dedicated surround speaker that can be wall-mounted or sited on top of the floor-standing models as an upward-firing effects speaker. Every speaker within the LX MkII Series is meticulously built to deliver maximum sonic expression with minimum compromise. The design team has fully optimised the performance of each model using functionally sophisticated modelling tools and software, yet Mission’s original slogan, ‘Music is the Master, Technology is the Slave’, definitely hits home. Months of fine-tuning and rigorous listening tests have ensured that these speakers communicate with engaging energy and nuance, enlivening music with all the vibrancy and finesse one expects of Mission speakers.
The LX MkII Series is feature-packed with a new version of Mission’s DiaDrive bass/midrange drive unit, where the usual cone and dust cap arrangement is replaced by a seamless curvilinear diaphragm. This is directly driven by a secondary sub-cone connected to the voice coil, levelling up the efficiency of drive and providing superior control of the smoothly dished diaphragm. The diaphragm itself is fashioned from an advanced dual-layer fibre formulation, selected for its reduced susceptibility to hygroscopy as well as being very stiff for its mass with outstanding self-damping. A high-strength ferrite magnet ensures that the magnetic field is directed precisely within the area of voice coil excursion, facilitating an ultra-linear performance and superb transient response.
Sound With Teeth
One of the critical areas highlighted by the development of Mission’s upmarket QX speakers is the use of ‘comb-tooth’ serrations in the driver surrounds to help scatter interfering reflections from localised surfaces to the bass/mid cones. The LX MkII Series incorporates similar serrations in the main driver surrounds, as well as indentations around the tweeter, adding further finesse to the drive unit outputs and providing a smoother frequency response than the previous generation of LX speakers.
Exceptional Networking Skills
With barely perceptible disturbances in the driver response ironed out, each model’s crossover network has been optimised to take advantage of the improved performance. The LX MkII Series uses a 4th order (24dB per octave acoustic) Linkwitz-Riley network, developed with advanced computer modelling and many hours of listening tests, to knit the drivers together seamlessly. It is conspicuous for its ability to balance excellent off-axis performance with a flatter on-axis result. Music or movies bounce with energy with the lifelike sound of the Mission LX MkII speakers.
The cabinet is just as significant as the drive units and crossover to the overall performance of any loudspeaker system. Building an effective low-cost box is tricky, as budget dictates that the designer cannot use expensive materials or high mass to create an inert structure. With the help of 3D Computer-Aided Design, finite element analysis and laser interferometry, paired with extensive experience, a cost-efficient cabinet can be designed that delivers better robustness with lower radiated noise than many would believe achievable at such low material cost. As part of the critical fine-tuning of the new models, discrete placement of extra internal damping fibre inside the rear-ported cabinet has reduced the level of midrange colouration and improved the bass transient attack. As the Mission LX MkII Series emphatically proves, like many Mission designs before it, budget loudspeakers can truly sing, whilst also being smart, pragmatic and hassle-free in terms of positioning.
