ProAc Response DB3
Small high quality loudspeakers have become very popular, being less of an eyesore whilst reproducing some incredible sound quality. The new Response DB3 has a similar cabinet size to the Response DB1. There are structural and visual differences to the cabinet of the Response DB3, it also employs a new bass driver and crossover which have been chosen for their exceptional performance with a more affordable price.
The new Response DB3 has a wonderfully rich and extended bass quality, loaded with a single reflex port in the rear of the cabinet. The tweeter is the ProAc one inch soft dome used in many other ProAc designs. This one inch silk dome has a superbly flat response with electrostatic type detail and sweetness to its qualities.
A newly designed bass driver with a special surround and dust cap, allows extra information from the voice coil giving a smoother transition of frequencies to the one inch dome tweeter. The bass driver is a long throw design with a raised spider and linear motor system. The new bass driver is responsible for the remarkable bass extension.

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.
