Compact Monitor III

IMF Compact Monitor 3


The CM3 represents the latest development of three-way "in-line" configuration and is intended for monitoring purposes where accurate phase-coherent response and imagery are essential.

The complex and carefully designed crossover ensures these parameters are maintained throughout the very wide frequency response of this speaker, which has such moderate dimensions. Our one-inch soft dome tweeter extends the high frequency range well above audibilty. The plastic-coned mid-range and bass units have their rearward radiation absorbed in separate and tapered cabinet sections, which also serve to produce an enclosure that is both rigid and free of spurious resonances.

Of modem design, the cabinet is finished in the highest quality American walnut veneer with the option of light beechwood trim top and bottom (as illustrated). The self-coloured dark brown foam that covers the front of the cabinet is acoustically transparent and complements the attractive veneer. The flat baffle, devoid of grille framing, eliminates image smear caused by defractions.

The accuracy of this remarkable loudspeaker truly warrants the term "Monitor".
