Krypton3X is the latest iteration of Amphion’s flagship loudspeaker project. 25 years in the making, Krypton3X is a true reference design. This highly innovative and unique three way loudspeaker allows you to enjoy full range, realistic orchestral performances without owning a concert hall.
5th generation waveguide
Amphion’s signature waveguide offers three distinct advantages over conventional baffle-mounted tweeters. It acts as an acoustic amplifier, increasing the tweeter’s efficiency and allowing Amphion to cross over at a lower frequency, where the human auditory system is less sensitive to the transition. It places the acoustic centre of the tweeter in the same vertical plane as the 8″ mid / bass drivers, so that they are perfectly time aligned. Last but not least, the waveguide helps the normally highly directional treble to spread out over a wider arc than it would naturally, so that the tone of the speakers does not change dramatically off axis. This creates a wide sweet spot and ensures that sound reflected off side walls has a similar tonal mix to the direct sound, which creates a sense of spaciousness.
The combined cone area of tweeter and two 8” midrange units is 950 cm² – up to seven times more than in competing products. When needed, substantial amounts of air can be moved with ease, while preserving the subtle nuances.
Krypton’s 8” midwoofers are isolated from the rest of the cabinet in perforated, cardioid chambers. This creates a cardioid (heart shaped) dispersion pattern, which radically reduces midrange reflections and ensures the highest level of performance, even in less than optimal listening environments.
The highly innovative cardioid midrange minimizes unwanted reflections from both side and back walls (up to 20 dB), and allows Krypton3X’s to perform exceptionally well even in small rooms or close to large windows.
Hidden 10″ bass driver
To achieve true full range sound, Krypton’s elegant and timeless cabinet design incorporates a 10” side firing woofer. A rigid aluminium cone and a long excursion ensure powerful and controlled bass in all environments.
