Mission possible! These entertaining budget speakers are among the best budget speakers out there..." 'What Hi-Fi? award winner 2016'. 5-star review.
Powerful Mission sound
In the best traditions of Mission speakers, the LX-2s are punchy, dynamic and above all, fun to listen to. Whatever the genre of music, these baby Mission speakers rip through tunes with real enthusiasm. Although compact and neatly proportioned, they'll easily fill all but the largest rooms with a smooth, punchy sound.
Finesse to match
There's much more to the Mission LX-2s than sheer power alone. The speakers use Mission's traditional inverted driver layout for time-aligned sound. What this means is a more focused, precise sound that snaps vocals into sharp relief. Used with a decent quality recording and source it can truly sound like the vocalists are 'there' in the room with you.
Thanks to bass ports, the LX-2 speakers give an even sound with a full bass, even at lower volumes. The bass ports help improve the speakers' efficiency which means that you can also use the speakers with lower powered mini systems - Mission recommend a minimum rating of 25 watts. Such is their transparent quality, though, that they'll also shine with mid-range Hi-Fi separates. Simply put the better the source the better they'll sound, making them ideal to see few several upgrades to the rest of your system.
Bring your music to life, with the invigorating sound of the Mission LX-2 speakers.

Speaker Enclosure TypeType of speaker enclosure. Infinite baffle cabinets are sealed and so are often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power to drive, though. Bass reflex speakers are usually more efficient than infinite baffle designs but may require more care in terms of placement. Rear port designs, in particular, usually need at least 15-30cm (6 - 12 inches) between them and the wall behind, for a balanced bass response.
