ProAc K3

 

ProAc K3

For their more compact floor-standing K Series speaker, the K3, a specific Kevlar drive unit needed to be developed.

This new 2-way floor stander is a more compact and affordable model to compliment the K6.

Background K3

The letter ‘K’ in ProAc’s K Series stands for Kevlar, the cone material used in the manufacture of the K Series drive units.

In the past with the exception of the now discontinued Tablette Anniversary, ProAc has only utilised Kevlar for bass and lower midrange reproduction in their large floor standing flagship models.

Now Kevlar technology is featured in the new mid-bass driver specifically designed for this new addition to the K Series, the K3.

ProAc K3 drivers

Cones manufactured using Kevlar are light, stiff and exhibit a characteristic warmth which ProAc consider superior to carbon fibre together with excellent bass transient and extension qualities.

The new K3 mid-bass driver is designed to produce ProAc’s trademark open mid-range quality in a true high-end loudspeaker that incorporates the additional benefits of a phase plug thus improving detail and dispersion.

ProAc’s proven K Series ribbon tweeter is centrally positioned between two mid-bass drivers and the three drivers seamlessly mated via a high quality crossover which may be split for optional bi-wiring or bi-amping.

The K3 produces a wonderfully clear, open and detailed midrange, reminiscent of electrostatics with a dynamic, extended bass response thereby offering music lovers of all genres a captivating and involving listening experience.

The K3 will make a welcome addition to the K Series

The UK retail price including VAT is £9,750 for black ash, silk white, cherry, oak, walnut and mahogany, £11,700 for ebony and rosewood..

ProAc Loudspeakers

Even in the short history of high-end high fidelity, few companies have lasted the course. Even fewer have consistently developed and produced high quality products which have earned international acclaim. ProAc is one such company.

The ProAc range is, as they say, reassuringly expensive. We do not make cheap loudspeakers and certainly do not produce cheap sounds. Happily, many thousands of audiophiles worldwide agree with our philosophy.

Every ProAc loudspeaker is hand-crafted, with our technicians individually responsible for the building and testing of each unit, from the flagship Response models to the diminutive Tablette. Build quality alone is unsurpassed, each cabinet being meticulously constructed, damped and finished in real wood veneer.

Only the very finest components are used in ProAc loudspeakers, with each new model reflecting the very leading edge of audio technology. Indeed many models now incorporate dedicated drive units using our own basket, cone and magnet assemblies. Drive unit performance is fine-tuned through expensive and sophisticated crossover networks.

But all the finest cabinets and components in the world are redundant without inspired design. And for a quarter of a century Stewart Tyler, Chairman and Chief Designer has been responsible for putting it all together and producing the performance. He alone decides the cabinet size and configuration, drive unit layout and crossover design and all the other factors which combine to produce some of the most cultured sounds available in modern audio.

ProAc loudspeakers are available through a network of enlightened dealers who will be pleased not only to put our models through their paces, but to give informed advice on partnering equipment. When you think you’ve heard the best, then go and hear ProAc.
