SOUND AND BUILD QUALITY

The DC-2 MKIII is the third generation of its type. Suitable in small to medium size rooms for great stereo reproduction, or used in a home theatre application for front or surround channels.

Our new 130mm natural fibre cone bass mid incorporates a unique vented alloy chassis. Supported on a linear suspension and soft low damping rubber surround with a non conducting fibre voice coil former. This driver has incredibly low noise and distortion.

We've combined this with another unique driver for the higher frequencies. These are handled by a dual concentric diaphragm tweeter with a specialised central phase plug to control and give excellent on and off axis performance. This gives the DC-2 MKIII even more natural and accurate reproduction over a wider area in your room.

Power handling as with all VAF speakers is excellent, maintaining very low distortion levels even at higher volumes. Important when you want to reproduce the full dynamic potential of your music or movie soundtrack.

These unique drivers are housed in a solid hand finished double sided veneer cabinet with a front baffle up to 30mm thick. The front baffle precisely time aligns the bass and tweeter.

Available in four standard colours - Natural oak, Black oak, Jarrah oak and Brown oak.

UPGRADES

Upgrade options (that actually make a difference!) | Contact Us to add on an upgrade.

With significant time spent implementing and evaluating many different options to enhance the performance of a speaker, we've settled on three that make a noticeable improvement from a sound and importantly a value perspective:
  • Cable Up ($50) As the quality of the external speaker cables makes a difference to the sound of your system, so too does internal wiring. Our standard wiring is very good quality cable, upgrading to US made Analysis Plus cables all the way to the speaker drivers takes it up to the next level. PLUS with the cable upgrade we upgrade signal path capacitors in the cross overs to the next level.

  • Mass Up ($100) Mass matters. Adding internal damping to critical internal cabinet walls reduces even further cabinet interaction. Increasing the overall mass of the speakers by a massive 15% we line the cabinet with a high mass silver backed composite. Time consuming but worth the effort.
