Packing all that's great about Mission's award-wining LX-series into a floorstanding speaker, the Mission LX-3 punches hard.
Famous Mission sound in a practical floorstander
Since 1977, Mission have been famed for their speakers' powerful, punchy performance. The award-winning LX-series reflects the Mission ethos to perfection, with an exciting performance across the board. The LX-3 is a floorstanding design that's big enough for a deeper, more dynamic sound than the LX-2 but also not too big for most living rooms.
Using not one but two bass woofers, the LX-3 manages to deliver deep bass and punchy dynamics from a slimline cabinet. Twin rear bass ports help reinforce the bass efficiency, meaning that you get a rich, well-balanced sound, even at lower volumes.
Subtle when it needs to be
There's much more to the Mission LX-3s than sheer power alone. The speakers use Mission's traditional 'D'Appolito' configuration for time-aligned sound. What this means is a more focused, precise sound that snaps vocals into sharp relief. Used with a decent quality recording and source it can truly sound like the vocalists are 'there' in the room with you.
With its high sensitivity of 89.5dB, the MX3s are an easy load for most amps - or even mini systems. A 30 watt amplifier is ample to get the best from these speakers, although they're quite happy with powerful designs right up to around 120 watts. They also work well in your room, without needing to dominate it for the best performance. Requiring just 20cm from the rear wall, these slimline speakers won't intrude more than a stand-mount speaker.
Enjoy a rich, powerful sound from a slimline speaker, with the Mission LX-3.

|Speaker Enclosure Type||Type of speaker enclosure. Infinite baffle cabinets are sealed and so are often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power to drive, though. Bass reflex speakers are usually more efficient than infinite baffle designs but may require more care in terms of placement. Rear port designs, in particular, usually need at least 15-30cm (6 - 12 inches) between them and the wall behind, for a balanced bass response.
