Børresen Shows New Floorstanding Speakers X3

As an entry into Børresen speakers, the Danish manufacturer introduces the new floorstanding loudspeaker X3, which is supposed to offer technologies of the larger models.

According to Børresen, the new X3 speakers are supposed to be based on the brand's larger and more expensive models, thus offering, among other things, a low-resonance crossover that is said to carry the same components as the "Z" series crossovers. The cabinet of the speakers is also stated to be braced against distortions and aid in reducing other mechanical influences, thus improving the sound. According to the manufacturer, the tweeter of the new floorstanding speakers offers the same design as the models of other Børresen speakers, while carrying a smaller magnet. It is still supposed to offer, among other things, high efficiency as well as low mass.

The X3's midrange driver and woofers employ a special membrane based on Børresen's high-end "M1" membrane, which is said to offer high stiffness and low noise. The X3 diaphragms are a sandwich construction of two layers of carbon fiber enclosing an aramid honeycomb, which is said to provide low resonance and require a smaller magnet drive. In the driver motors, copper caps on the pole rings in particular are said to improve performance, which are supposed to, among other things, put a lower load on connected amplifiers and result in fewer spikes in the impedance curve.

The new floorstanding speakers X3 from Børresen are available in black or white and are said to come at an MSRP of €10,000 in Germany.
