Bass is so much more than explosive special effects, booming cannons in the 1812 Overture, the deafening roar of CGI monsters or even the most riveting, trouser-flapping, shake-your-booty dance beat.
It is the subtle, low-level ambient hum of a packed concert hall just before the first note is played. It is the soft, ominous rumble of thunder off in the distance.
It is all of these things and so much more. The bottom end of the audio spectrum is a crucial component in making the listening experience that much more real.
The X Series subwoofers bring it all home to you.
Your final choice of X Series subwoofer model will naturally depend on many factors including room size, preferred listening levels, musical and cinematic tastes and, of course, exactly how dedicated you are to the quest for ultimate audio realism.
“M&K is the granddaddy of subwoofer manufacturers” Stereophile Magazine
No matter what some manufacturers may try to tell you, according to the immutable laws of physics: Big bass requires a big box.
X10 subwoofer: With dual 10” drive units, the X10 provides 156 sq. in. of cone area to move and control air, equivalent to a single 15” driver.
The all-new X Series 8”, 10” and 12” woofers have been tailored specifically to fulfill M&K Sound’s ambitious performance requirements. They employ open baskets for free air circulation, resulting in minimal mechanical distortion by eliminating any captive compressed air mass behind the cone. Cast baskets also offer a very rigid connection to the cabinet and improved heat dissipation from the motor system for reduced power compression.
Introducing the Distortion Killers
The M&K Sound X Series implements aluminium AC shorting rings in the magnet system and aluminium pole spacers above the pole piece. These devices make a significant contribution to the X Series subwoofers’ ability to render extraordinary fine dynamic bass detail with high precision at all levels as the drivers maintain full control and respond instantaneously to the incoming signal, for unparalleled accuracy and authority in the bottom octaves.
