Introduction

Designed for continuous high power operation in a correctly constructed acoustic space, the M3 represents the fruit of a research and development program aimed at elevating main monitors above the realm of modified PA speakers.

Designed for continuous high power operation in a correctly constructed acoustic space, the M3 represents the fruit of a research and development program aimed at elevating main monitors above the realm of modified PA speakers.

A pair of 300mm bass drivers are perfectly complemented by two 150mm piston midrange drivers employing massive 75mm coils. High frequencies are accommodated by a high power version of the 28mm Esotec T-330 DA dome tweeter, which enjoys a reputation as the finest dome tweeter available.

All drivers are ferrofluid cooled, a benefit only made possible on low frequency drivers by the use of custom designed ferrofluid compounds applied to very tightly tolerated voice coil gabs - a feature absolutely unique to Dynaudio Acoustics.

The result is a very clean, dynamic and powerful speaker in which common problems, such as cone break up, thermal compression and phase misalignment have been almost eliminated. Frequency response is full and flat, and the overall transparency of sound leaves no doubt that the M3 truly advances the art of monitoring at high levels without sacrificing quality at more relaxing volume. Levels from 85 to 120dBA exhibit essentially identical timbre allowing total confidence in mix decisions regardless of monitoring level.

Passive or Active

The M3 Main Monitor is available in both Passive and Active-ready versions.

Both versions employ the same sophisticated impedance corrected passive crossovers between midrange drivers and tweeter. The Passive version has internal links for simple adjustment of low frequency levels, and is primarily intended for user installation on rigid stands within a control room, although soffit mounting is entirely feasible.

The bi-amped Active system requires an external active 2-way crossover and 2 channels of amplification pr speaker offering full equalization capabilities together with dual-band electronic driver protection (consult your dealer for compatible crossover/amp combinations)
