Reference Three Loudspeaker

Bigger is not always better...

Contrary to popular belief, bigger is not always better !!
Room characteristics play a major importance in choosing the correct loudspeaker.

Matched to the appropriate room, Reference Three is capable of performing to the
same high levels as our other Reference loudspeakers, just on a more intimate basis.

The integrated stand is designed to reduce unwanted room interaction and provide
a large resistance mass, especially important with certain floor types.

With the Bass drivers elevated from the floor there is also less low frequency distortion, more noticeable within a typically smaller listening environment.

Common to our other models, Reference Three employs the same cabinet construction and vibration damping techniques, sandwiching the drivers between metal plates,
damping and guiding unwanted resonances to our vibration damping element
and presenting a stunning fixture-free appearance.

Manufactured from up to 20mm aerospace grade aluminium plate at our Huntingdon factory, each hand crafted cabinet houses two 6" Mid/Bass units and a natural sounding 28mm soft dome tweeter, each driver retaining the Titanium voice coil former for lightness and rigidity, identical to Reference One and Two models.

The Reference Three cabinet is also reflex loaded, each drive unit optimized for low frequency performance. Twin ports exit from below the cabinet minimising room positioning issues and each speaker stand is fitted with our attractive adjustable solid stainless steel spikes for effective grounding.

With the ultra rigid loudspeaker cabinet ensuring a colouration free sound that's sweet and natural, suddenly you're rediscovering your music collection not listening to your speakers.

Finished in Black with contrasting chrome trim panels.
