Amphion Krypton3X – the Updated 3-Way Flagship Loudspeaker
The new crossover and tweeter design heightens the full range performance with low distortion in any listening environment
Kuopio, Finland, May 2, 2023 — Finnish loudspeaker brand Amphion has its European debut of its updated Krypton3X at this month’s High End Munich 2023 show. This true full-range floor standing passive speaker delivers strong impact and nuance throughout its frequency range. Since its inception, the goal of the Krypton line has always been to allow listeners to enjoy a full range, realistic orchestral performances without owning a concert hall. Krypton3X takes it to another level. Amphion’s technology and design experience has culminated in bringing this highly innovative update by leveraging a new state-of-the-art tweeter and low crossover point inside a unique cardioid cabinet design to minimize unwanted reflections making any room fit to handle the Krypton3X. It will be on display alongside the Argon line and Amphion’s studio monitor line – including the recently launched One25A, and can be experienced in Halle 3, booth M12/N05 from May 18th through the 21st held at the MOC in Munich.
The new tweeter and redesigned crossover elevate Krypton3X to achieve even better resolution and even clearer imaging than before.
Updated design | superior sound
Krypton3X is Amphion’s reference project, now 25 years in the making. The new tweeter and redesigned crossover elevate Krypton3X to achieve even better resolution and even clearer imaging than before. The 25 mm titanium tweeter combines low distortion with high extension and seamlessly integrates with the mid-range drivers to form a large driver combination. High quality components were carefully selected for the new crossover to compliment the new tweeter in order to keep the similar sonic character and tone – but with improved sonics.
“Krypton3X offers full range sound in a room friendly package. The combination of its new tweeter and the dual 8” midranges are intoxicatingly detailed and involving and perform superbly well even in challenging acoustic spaces” says Anssi Hyvönen, the Founder and Managing Director of Amphion Loudspeakers. “We are very proud to introduce the fifth version of our flag ship speaker to our customers.”
The highly innovative cardioid midrange combined with U/D/D – Uniformly Directive Diffusion technology, minimizes unwanted reflections from both side and back walls (up to 20dB).
True 3-Way Full Range
The Krypton3X is a three-way MTM configuration consisting of two carefully placed proprietary-papyrus 8” midrange woofers and titanium tweeter using Amphion´s proprietary waveguide technology to create uniform time-accurate point source working from 160Hz upwards. The large surface area creates an uncanny sense of ease, while achieving clarity and high power-handling with lowest possible levels of distortion. The ribbed 8” driver combines both impact and authority with speed and detail and produces a rare combination nuance and power.
The highly innovative cardioid midrange combined with U/D/D – Uniformly Directive Diffusion technology, minimizes unwanted reflections from both side and back walls (up to 20dB), and allows Krypton3X’s to perform exceptionally well even in small rooms or close to large windows. Both midrange drivers work in their own chambers, side vented by holes drilled in the shape of an acute triangle.
The woofer is hidden behind the cloth cover, which contributes to timeless and understated aesthetics of the Krypton3X.
To achieve true full range sound, Krypton3X incorporates a 10” side firing woofer. The rigid aluminium cone and long excursion ensure powerful, extended yet controlled bass. The Krypton cabinets can be positioned with the woofers facing inwards, generally a preferred small room placement, or woofers outwards for a broader soundstage in a larger room. The woofer is mounted in the vented enclosure located between the midrange driver’s chambers and is hidden behind the cloth cover, which contributes to timeless and understated aesthetics of the Krypton3X.
