The third generation of a Wilson Benesch classic. The original ‘Discovery’ name was a reference to the development of the unique acoustic presentation that the first Discovery loudspeaker delivered when it was launched in 2002. A 2.5-way standmount monitor like no other, the Discovery 3Zero deploys the same unique drive topology as the original classic, placing the Fibonacci Tweeter and a dedicated Tactic 3.0 midrange drive unit in close proximity to the powerful Isobaric Drive System that sits directly on the underside of the loudspeaker in the vertical plane. With all drive technologies placed within a few inches of one another, time alignment and integration across the Discovery 3Zero frequency band is unmatched. The Discovery 3Zero delivers a lightning-fast, punchy, highly accurate and endlessly captivating presentation.

“...virtually every element in the speaker, from the cabinet and drivers to the spikes and terminals, is manufactured in-house, giving the company complete control of form, function, consistency and tolerance.” - ROY GREGORY, THEAUDIOBEAT.COM
