Mission 750 Bookshelf-Friendly Standmount Loudspeakers Available

Mission's compact 750 standmounts continue the legacy of the iconic 700, sporting retro-inspired aesthetics of the original 70s speakers.

We've reviewed the larger 770 and 700 standmount speakers, which are modern reinventions of classic speakers. However, it is worth noting that the Mission 750 is an entirely new design. The two-way, compact 35 x 21 x 27cm (HxWxD) bookshelf loudspeaker design is dressed in Mission's classic trademark white baffle, complete with the Mission logo.

As with the 700, the 750 sports what Mission dubs its IDG (Inverted Driver Geometry), so the treble unit sits below the mid/bass driver. Mission says this design aids timing and stereo imaging by placing the mid/bass driver closer to the listener's ear level and equalising the path lengths of the drivers' acoustic centres. Mission's LX-2 and QX-2 MkII also share this inverted driver arrangement.

The 750 is home to a 13.5cm mid/bass cone constructed from polypropylene, a material Mission pioneered in commercial loudspeakers. We are told that minerals are added to the cone to make it stiffer than regular polypropylene units, resulting in a faster, tighter bass response.

Mission also claims that it has tuned and profiled the rear-firing reflex port to a “very low” frequency, mitigating the 'one note bass' effect presented by some bass-reflex systems. Meanwhile, the tweeter unit crosses over at 2.4kHz and incorporates a lightweight 28mm microfibre dome supported by a damped rear chamber to achieve smooth and detailed high-frequency performance.

The resulting frequency response is a claimed 48Hz-20kHz (+/-3dB), while the bass extension is 42Hz (-6dB). Sensitivity is down as 86dB (2.8V @ 1m) with nominal impedance at 6Ω (8Ω compatible).

The 12.2L cabinets feature a real-wood veneer with a twin-wall sandwich of MDF and particle board connected by a layer of damping adhesive. A construction that's said to reduce panel resonance and noise interference. Furthermore, internal bracing strengthens the front baffle for enhanced dynamic performance from the mid/bass driver.

Peter Comeau, Mission's director of acoustic design, told StereoNET:

The techniques and technologies harnessed to create the 750 are cutting-edge, but as always with Mission, this technology is used purely to capture the emotional power of music – in line with the company's motto: 'music leads, technology follows'.
