NEUTRON III MINIATURE MONITORS
Our first loudspeakers were the Neutrons and they were extremely successful, winning us awards and selling in substantial quantities. We thought they were very good, but not outstanding - we felt we could do better and we did we introduced the NuNeutrons.The New Neutron IIIs are more sensitive than their predecessors, have an improved crossover and a re-aligned port. They are 2dB more sensitive and capable of an astonishing 105dB each, at a metre from a 70 Watt amplifier.
They also have greater bass extension, greater clarity and improved stereo imagery. These tiny little speakers are a revelation, they are more than a match for anything out there regardless of size or price and will surely take their place along side some of the all time greats.
Irrespective of the size of speaker you think you need, you must listen to these. There is no other way you will believe what they can do.
The Neutron IIIs comprise of a five litre ported enclosure, fitted with a 5" doped paper mid/woofer and a "top of the range" 26mm fabric domed, tweeter.
The small loss of sensitivity involved with this type of drive unit is more than offset by the greatly reduced distortion/colouration that they offer.
The crossover is textbook second order and uses massive Ferrite cored inductors and polypropylene capacitors. Internal cabinet resonance's are damped by a measured quantity of acoustic wadding.
