The LX-4 is a two-way design, combining the 25mm Mission tweeter with two mid/bass drivers.
The LX-4 floor-stander positions the tweeter between the twin mid/bass drivers in a ‘D’Appolito’ configuration, rather than above both drivers in conventional fashion, similarly to the LX3.
LX Series speakers 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.
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.
High frequency drive units require extremely consistent parts which together with Mission’s extremely consistent manufacturing can deliver the performance required. Given the tiny moving masses involved, one micro-drop extra of high-tech adhesive can destroy the balance of the design, thus affecting sensitivity and frequency response.
Advanced Driver 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
Drive Unit Positioning and Integration
In traditional Mission style, the standmount LX-1 and LX-2’s tweeter is positioned below the mid/bass drive unit, in order to aid time alignment. By placing the treble unit lower than ear level, the path length from the treble unit to the listener is longer than that of the mid/bass unit. As the treble unit dome is physically forward of the mid/bass unit cone, the difference in path length helps to equalise the acoustic distance.

The diagram shows areas of bracing and its effect on the sound. Blue areas show where noise is reduced through cabinet bracing, while red areas highlight where there is sound. As you can see, the sound is seen emanating from the drivers and not from the cabinet, as it should be.
