DC-3 MKll Universal Speaker (Each)


Please Read - Important Delivery Information

Collections: DC Series Speakers

Type: DC Speakers

A cosmetic upgrade to the grill late 2015 provided a more modern look and a slimmer profile when used in its flush mount application.  The DC-3 MKll is a true G4 VAF DC-Series speaker in a tiny package. Only 10cm deep, this incredibly versatile speaker can be hung on walls, mounted flush into walls and ceilings, mounted on a stand or simply put on a shelf. Hallmark DC-Series sound accuracy and dynamic capabilities have also been maintained. Used with a VAF Subwoofer the G4 DC-3MKll can create a very discrete and high impact Home Theatre System. It is equally at home as a surround speaker in a DC-X63,  or DC-X42 based system if there is a need for smaller speakers for surround channels.

VAF's vented design pumps air through the voice coil every time the cone moves. The benefit is far lower distortion and improved power handling resulting in more consistent performance regardless of volume.


VAF have performed exhaustive testing to find the most effective damping materials. This generation of Hypersoft offers the best performance yet. Accurate placement within each cabinet ensures maximum attenuation of any internal standing waves.


As no driver is perfect good crossovers also equalise and shape the response of each driver as well as the overal response of the speaker.VAF use a particular type of design aproach which minimises the unessesary stored energy in crossovers, and as a result produce a much more pure and natural sound than conventional crossovers.


VAF loudspeakers are designed to steer the rear energy in a way that transmits it as far away from the driver as possible while also ensuring that energy passes through internal cabinet damping as many times as possible before ultimately returning to the driver. In this way much more rear energy is damped and hence does not re-radiate into the room. The result is a more pure sound.


Double Layer Diffraction Control As sound moves across the speaker baffle, it reflects or diffracts off the baffle and baffle edges. Twin layers of diffraction control material effectively stop these destructive reflections before they even happen.


VAF engineer the power response of all its loudspeakers to radiate sound as evenly as is possible for each model. In this way the proportion of bass, mid and trebble in the direct sound corelates more closely with the proportion of bass, mid and treble in the reflected sound and the listeners brain can corelate the two making the speakers less effected by a rooms acoustics and easier to place in a room.


Time alignment is achieved by stepping the various drivers (Woofers, Tweeters, Midranges) on the front of the speaker so that the acoustic centres are the same distance from a listener. For this to be effective a special kind of electrical crossover must also be used. All VAF loudspeakers are time algned.


These incredibly versatile speaker can be hung on walls, mounted flush into walls or ceilings, mounted on a stand or simply put on a shelf.

The purpose of loudspeakers it to reproduce sound faithfully, and VAF loudspeakers are famous for exeptionally pure, natural and accurate sound. VAF recognises however that some owners have competing aesthetic objectives. VAF has created a suite of options to assist every owner tailor the look or size of selected loudspeakers to compliment the owners specific needs or room.


All speakers take a moment to stop making sound (decay). The faster a speaker stops making sound the less that sound ‘blankets’ sound which follow it, or finer details in the sound. The more evenly the bass, mid and treble decay the more consistent the ‘pitch’ of the speaker. VAF loudspeakers are among the very few in the world that engineer for fast and even decay in all its incarnations. This includes diffraction, cabinet resonances, internal cabinet sound reflections, stored energy in electrical crossovers and more.


While very uncommon, and much more complex to build, Time Synchronised Arrays are the only way currently possible for a loudspeaker to sound natural (accurate).
