The P3 Evolution is a 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker featuring triple 150mm aluminium bass drivers, a dedicated 50mm fabric mid-dome in a sealed unit and a 27mm Sonolex coated fabric tweeter.
The 150mm bass drivers feature large magnets for outstanding transient response and stiff but lightweight aluminium diaphragms. Their combined surface area offers 20% more output than the twin drivers in the P2 for increased headroom and dynamics.
The bass drivers feature copper clad aluminium voice coils, long throw suspension and low loss rubber surrounds allowing them to displace large volumes of air with minimal distortion.
The P3 is unique in the Evolution range in that it features a dedicated 50mm fabric dome midrange unit in its own sealed unit. This provides even greater midrange clarity and eliminates the influence of the cabinet entirely from this critical frequency range.
The 25mm thick floating baffle is mounted to the chassis via a flexible gasket which prevents much of the vibrational force generated by the drive units from transferring directly to the cabinet walls.
By acoustically isolating the drive units from the cabinet, colouration is significantly reduced and an incredible depth of detail and separation is revealed.
The combination of a cabinet structure built from plywood rather than the more common MDF and a clever floating front baffle arrangement set the P-series apart from other loudspeakers in their price range.
Plywood is stronger and has better internal damping than MDF. Along with our unique AEROFLEX technology this allows the P3 Evolution to produce a smoothly controlled and extended bass performance.
The P3 Evolution uses an optimised AEROFLEX bass loaded design built directly into the cabinet structure in order to brace and strengthen the cabinet walls. By drastically lowering port velocities the drivers are properly supported throughout their stroke providing effortlessly detailed and dynamic bass.
The 27mm tweeter features an incredibly lightweight Sonolex coated diaphragm capable of producing an exceptionally lifelike sound that is also smooth and easy to listen to for extended periods. A tuned rear chamber and high power handling allows a low crossover point in order to blend seamlessly with output from the midrange dome.
