Compact, but with a sound of a much larger model
The 25 mm tweeter dome is also the component of choice here, while the lowest frequencies are catered for by a 170 mm bass-midrange driver, which delivers a real punch right down to 34 Hz.
The integrated amplifier delivers 2 x 40 watts of continuous power or 2 x 80 watts of peak power, which makes the Reference 3A a fully-fledged hi-fi speaker. The crossover in the 3A intervenes at a frequency of 3,300 Hz. Of course, this system also has an active and a passive speaker, with the latter simply being connected to the active unit via a cable. Like all of the speakers in the series, the 3A is also exquisitely processed, which is manifested in a weight of 6.4 and 5.8 kg per speaker.
