The NOLA Metro Grand Reference Series III a compact floor standing loudspeaker that provides state of the art sound quality in small to medium rooms. The Metro Grand Reference Series III uses only one square foot of floor space. Technology developed for the Grand Reference VI and the Concert Grand Reference have been "trickled down" to provide performance that is the cutting edge for what can be achieved in this size platform.

Twin 160 mm magnesium cone woofers are low mass designs and combine high speed, deep bass and very low distortion. Each woofer is housed in a separate chamber and is separately tuned with its own port. Bass is tighter with improved definition. The open baffle midrange driver is a very low mass design and is driven by a premium Alnico magnet system for the lowest distortion and elimination of box coloration over the critical midrange frequencies.

We have also developed a new true ribbon tweeter. This new driver extends the high frequency response to 100 kHz. This extended bandwidth provides an increased sense of "reality" over the whole range including the bass.

The lack of any enclosure in the midrange or high frequency range eliminates any possible enclosure coloration in this critical region -- something that cannot be achieved with any kind of box loudspeaker. Newly developed polypropylene/oil capacitors provide increased resolution for the 3½ way UnisonTM hand wired crossover. The crossover is implemented on three separate crossover boards, internally mounted. Flat copper ribbon coils and Nordost Mono-Filament Silver wire are used throughout.

The Metro Grand Reference Series III utilizes a double platform ball bearing isolation base to further reduce floor-borne vibrations which tend to "muddy" the sound.

The Metro Grand Reference Series III is ideal when the expansive musical sound of the Baby Grand Reference is desired -- but in a smaller room.
