Kii Audio Three Pro Monitor
The Kii Audio Three Pro Monitor break the sonic mold that a compact speaker cant sound like big studio speaker. Introducing the Kii Audio Three Pro Monitor, delivering true big speaker performance from a decidedly small box.
Kii Audio’s mission for the Three Pro was to break the sonic mould of compact speakers. Powerful small speakers with deep bass have been around for a while now but none so far sounded like a big speaker. The Three Pro is built to fix that. Basic acoustics tells us that a classic box speaker only directs sound towards the listeners from the midrange up while bass frequencies are radiated all around. The frequency where this change happens depends on the size of the box front (the “baffle”). The smaller the baffle, the higher the frequency at which bass is still radiated all around instead of directed towards the listener. That in short is why big speakers have so far delivered much more precise timing and detail in the bass and low mids than small speakers: the room gets less chance to interfere. And that is what Kii Audio has now managed to make a compact speaker do.
The Kii Audio Three Pro Monitor delivers true "big speaker performance" from a decidedly small box. To achieve this, Kii invented Active Wave Focusing, which is a combination of a special 4-way DSP crossover filter with drive units mounted front, side and back that "throws" the sound towards the listener instead of bathing the room in it. While cardioid beam forming as a technique of dispersion has been previously achieved, the Kii Three Pro radically improves on it by maintaining a cardioid response over the full audio band. The wave front appears as if radiated from a single point just in front of the speaker, meaning that the time coherence of the wave front is fully maintained on and off axis. This translates to an impressively wide sweet spot and spacious stereo field with pinpoint accurate imaging.
The Three Pro is the first compact speaker that exceeds the clarity of a full size sound system in a large room, while its small size means it’s equally at home in much more modest spaces. In fact, smaller rooms will benefit most from the Three Pro’s controlled bass. Better than big speakers at sounding big and better adapted for small rooms than other small speakers, Three Pro is a truly no-compromise monitoring product.
Better Mixes, Faster
The Kii Three Pro is extremely revealing of EQ, compression and effects, saving you from nasty surprises when you check your mix on another system. Effortless presentation allows for longer, more productive mixing sessions without ear fatigue. In the end you will work faster with better results and be more confident that your mixes will translate.
