Enclosing a volume of just over one quarter of that of the G1, the new Vivid Audio G3 is the answer to those seeking the purity of reproduction of the GIYA series in a package which is easily accommodated into the more typical home environment.

 
A pair of newly developed bass drivers lay the foundation on which this, the smallest member of the family is built. Retaining the motor structure and suspension profiles of the larger siblings, the C135 is well capable of producing substantial bass energy despite its reduced diameter. The top of the bass enclosure displays the now uniquely familiar curl of the tapered tube absorber to completely eliminate the top to bottom resonances and deliver sharp accurate bass.

 
In every other frequency band the G3 is virtually identical in performance to G1 and G2: the C125 alloy cone handles the low-mid frequencies while the D50 and D26 catenary dome drivers cover the mids and highs respectively with each being rear loaded with independent exponential horns. In a departure from the design tradition of the other models, the G3 proudly witnesses each of these absorber horns with the low-mid horn linking round to the bass absorber horn in a graceful loop which is spanned by the two smaller tubes of the mid and high frequencies.

 
GIYA is a loudspeaker system like no other. A myriad of technical details skilfully combined to achieve a remarkable sense of pistonic transparency and tonal naturalness together with a uniqueness of design forming its final appearance.

 
The loudspeakers are shipped as pairs and are available in two standard colours Pearl White & Piano Black. Please specify on your order.

 
Custom colours can be specified at an additional cost. Please contact to arrange this.

 
Please note the lead time is approximately 6 weeks as everything is built to a specific order.
