Krix Announces MX-5 and MX-10 Modular Cinema Screen Speakers
Krix, the kings of cinema speakers disrupted and revolutionised the home cinema market in 2015 with the release of their modular MX speaker systems.
Designed to be installed behind acoustically transparent screens, the MX system replicated the sound performance of commercial cinemas in a residential application.
Dubbed 'the wall of sound' by many, Krix's MX-20 and larger MX-30 have become a benchmark and now specified by leading home cinema designers.
Krix have this week announced two new additions to the MX range in the form of the MX-5 and MX-10 modular screen speaker systems.
Krix MX-5 Modular Cinema Screen Speakers
As you might guess from the model numbers, these two are designed for smaller rooms (and screens). Krix suggests the MX-5 will deliver optimal performance in smaller rooms of 15sqm to 25sqm, while the MX-10 is aimed at mid-size rooms of 25sqm to 35sqm.
Krix has further refined the cabinets of the new models with the MX-5 depth only 190mm, and MX-10 depth at 205mm. Both models have been designed with serviceability in mind, using passive subwoofers, so there's no need for access behind the screen.
Krix MX-10 Modular Cinema Screen Speakers
The minimum screen size for the MX-5 system is 92-inch (16:9 - 2037x1146mm) or 90-inch (21:9 scope - 2101x900mm). Minimum screen size for the MX-10 is 92-inch (16:9 - 2037 x 1146mm) or 100-inch (21:9 scope - 2335 x 1001mm).
The MX-5 and MX-10 speakers will be available in November and will sell for $7,995 RRP and $9,995 RRP respectively.
Just add your Atmos and Surround speakers, which Krix also offers, and you'll have reference levels of immersive cinema sound, in the convenience of your home.
