Response DB3

A high-end stand-mount loudspeaker at an affordable price

The Response DB3 has a similar cabinet size to the Response DB1 but there are structural and visual differences. The DB3 also employs a different bass driver with a special surround, dust cap and crossover which have been chosen for their exceptional performance at a more affordable price.

The Response DB3 has a wonderfully rich and extended bass quality, loaded with a single reflex port at the rear of the cabinet. The tweeter is our ProAc 1-inch soft dome as used in other Response Range designs. This 1-inch silk dome has a superb flat response with electrostatic type detail and sweetness.

With the DB3, ProAc has created a small speaker with better efficiency and a rich sound that defies its physical size.

ProAc invests a great deal of time researching the choice of diaphragm material for their drive units.

"The beauty of music and the joy and emotion it brings is so much more important than designs based on scientific measurements and statistics. Designing loudspeakers is an art, a gift of knowing when something is right – when the soundstage is portrayed, the speakers disappear, and you thrill to the music."
