A compact yet powerful entry into the Series MX range, the MX-5 packs a big punch for its size and can be installed below a conventional projector screen or behind an acoustically transparent screen.
- Compact and powerful
- Versatile behind or below screen installation
- For small to mid-size rooms
“… delivers both an immersive and exciting home theatre listen.”
– Tony O’Brien [Stereonet]
For the movie lover with a small to medium size room, the MX-5 provides big sound in a small package, allowing versatility of installation without taking up valuable space. Boasting the Krix waveguide and large mid-bass driver, movie soundtracks will be delivered with the articulation and impact you’ve always wanted.
The MX-5 features five compact modules, allowing easy installation behind an acoustically transparent screen in a wall cavity, on a shelf or cabinetry, or below a projector screen. The front baffle of each module is covered with an acoustic absorbent material to absorb any sound reflecting off the back of the screen or the room itself. This assists greatly with the acoustic treatment of the room to ensure better intelligibility and overall sound performance.
The main speakers feature a 205mm mid-bass driver which has a 38mm voice coil wound on a high-powered aluminium former. The high frequency drive unit is a damped, high power, 26mm doped fabric dome tweeter, coupled with a proprietary Krix waveguide for optimum dispersion over the entire working bandwidth.
The subwoofer units feature 275mm (11”) drivers with 50mm edge-wound copper voice coil, dual spider assembly, and vented magnet assembly.
For the ultimate cinema experience at home, play it through Krix.
