Labrador series is not new to the AQ lineup. On the contrary, it is a very popular stalwart now using the most recent technological and manufacturing advancements. New construction details and brand new drivers are at the heart of the thoroughly updated Labrador series; what remain are the popular model types. Vifa and Peerless mid-bass drivers were replaced by much higher quality Scan-Speak drivers with cast aluminum frames and asymmetrically shaped cones.
A three-way column speaker system with bass reflex inspired by the legendary L26. Enclosure is made of a combination of MDF and particleboard panels. Excellent rigidity was achieved by combining flat and cross braces together with proprietary sandwich baffle. Rigidity and vibration resistance is one of the cornerstones of sound quality L26MKIII.
A pair of Scan-Speak woofers with large 8“ carbon fiber cones symmetrically suspended on rubber surround with a powerful magnet attached to a cast aluminum frame is an essential element to achieving powerful and accurate bass. Port is located on the front panel to allow for near wall placement without audible distortion. Midrange driver uses the same elements as the bass: rigid aluminum basket, rubber surround, linear motor and a lightweight carbon fiber cone. It is also from a famous Danish Scan-Speak. The midrange driver is mounted in a separate acoustic chamber, which adds to the internal rigidity. 1“ fabric soft dome ferrofluid cooled tweeter is one of the best models from the Vifa. Crossover point to point wiring is used throughout and precision polyester capacitors are secured to a carrier panel with solder points. Internal wiring is AUDIOQUEST TYPE4 and all internal connections are soldered.
The speaker is equipped with a removable cover frame, whichis fixed by the integrated magnets. Removable grille uses an invisible magnet system that makes for visually clean front baffle. The speaker comes fitted with adjustable spikes.
L26MKIII sound is a very versatile speaker that can brilliantly reproduce any musical genre. Dynamic rock passages are handled with aplomb and delicate chamber music is exquisitely nuanced. L 26MKIII is also suited as a front loudspeaker for Home Theater duties.
