For their more compact floor-standing K Series speaker, the ProAc 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.
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.
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
