The MX-40 is the flagship system of the Series MX range. Featuring a 3-way design, it is capable of immense sound pressure levels while maintaining the absolute highest level of soundtrack reproduction.
- 3-Way design
- Easy to install
- Krix Infinite Baffle Wall
The MX-40 screen speaker system is the first in the Series MX range to incorporate a 3-way design – delivering an incredibly smooth, consistent and compelling experience that encompasses the true dynamic power and clarity of real cinema sound.
Much like the MX-30, the MX-40 is best suited to larger home cinemas that are five to fourteen metres in depth. The new 3-way design features a dedicated high frequency compression driver and newly engineered 152mm midrange driver, both coupled to a brand new single-mould, dual-horn system that has been developed by Krix over three years. Principle benefits of the horn are a uniform, constant directivity pattern, improved frequency response and extremely low distortion, even when pushed to extreme sound pressure levels.
The 380mm bass drivers are made from a high stiffness paper cone, with a 75mm voice coil for increased linear excursion and a powerful vented magnet assembly lowers distortion.
Each of the two subwoofers contain a 455mm driver with 100mm voice coil, dual spider and vented magnet assembly for clean, tight and powerful bass that you’ll hear… and feel.
The MX-40 is the first Series MX system that is bi-ampable and incorporates two pairs of binding posts per speaker module. The patterned acoustic material on the front baffle gives the unit a refined style and increases the overall surface area of absorption.
For the ultimate cinema experience at home, play it through Krix.
