The excellent value compact DB3 from Proac is on demonstration at Criterion Audio Cambridge.
Small high quality loudspeakers have become very popular, being less of an eyesore whilst reproducing some quite respectable sound quality. The new Response DB3 has a similar cabinet size to the Response DB1. There are structural and visual differences to the cabinet of the Response DB3, it also employs a new bass driver and crossover which have been chosen for their exceptional performance with a more affordable price.
The new Response DB3 has a wonderfully rich and extended bass quality, loaded with a single reflex port in the rear of the cabinet. The tweeter is our ProAc one inch soft dome used in many other ProAc designs. This one inch silk dome has a superbly flat response with electrostatic type detail and sweetness to its qualities.
A newly designed bass driver with a special surround and dust cap, allows extra information from the voice coil giving a smoother transition of frequencies to our one inch dome tweeter. The bass driver is a long throw design with a raised spider and linear motor system. The new bass driver is responsible for the remarkable bass extension.
