M&K Sound has announced January availability of three new THX Certified subwoofers, the X15+, X12+ and X10+. The Danish company says the three new models, with their signature push-pull driver configuration, build on the performance of its former X Series for “deeper, faster and louder” bass than ever before. The new line also represents the first time the company has produced a 15-inch subwoofer, the THX Certified Dominus X15+. Prices for each come in at $4,499 (X10+), $4,999 (X12+) and $5,999 (X15+).
“With increasing demand for large home theaters, it was clear that we would once again need to redefine what superb bass performance means for both home and professional environments,” said Per Becher, chief executive officer, M&K Sound.
All three models have earned THX status with the X12+ and X10+ each brandishing Ultra and Select Certification, respectively. This also means that all the subs can achieve accepted cinema reference levels in rooms of up to 2,000ft³ (X10+), 3,000ft³ (X12+) and 6,500ft³ (X15+). Enhancements to the former X-Series subs include RMS and peak wattage power hikes with new Danish designed-and-built ICE Class D power amps inside. The X15+ is rated at a mighty 700W RMS/1400W Peak, while the X12+ can put out 600W RMS/1200 Peak (400W on the former X12) and the X10+ 500W RMS/1000W Peak (350W on the former X10). Bass frequencies go as low as 16Hz (X15+), 18Hz (X12+), and 20Hz (X10+).
“M&K audio engineers are among the world’s best, and passing THX rigorous standards for audio certification means passing hundreds of tests. M&K can be proud of this accomplishment, and audio enthusiasts everywhere will be pleased with the extraordinary pure, powerful output of these superb subwoofers,” said Steven Martz, vice president of global technology, THX Ltd.
M&K says all woofers have been redesigned with 30% larger voice coils and magnets, while increased linear excursion ensures better handling of extra power without causing distortion. Additionally, ultra high-strength carbon fibre woofer cones have been developed, and the company uses its famous ‘push-pull’ (non-isobaric) configuration to promote “totally symmetric waveforms”, effectively meaning you get “two subwoofers” in one cabinet. Cosmetic makeovers for the X+ Series include flush-mounted front baffles and invisible magnetic grille attachments. The line matches the company’s S150 and S300 speaker aesthetic and sports discreet curved edges. The X+ Series will be available in January 2022 from authorized M&K Sound dealers.
