A Message from the Inventors of the Subwoofer

“Creating the next generation of M&K Sound subwoofers was not something we undertook lightly. With a long legacy of market-leading innovation to live up to, we are proud to present the M&K Sound X Series, built to bring new force, authority and clarity to the critical bottom octaves for the listening pleasure of serious music and movie lovers everywhere.”

THE VERDICT

M&K Sound calls the X12 the subwoofer, and I can’t disagree with them. I’m pretty smitten with the X12 and have thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. It goes deep for movies and is controlled and tuneful with music—everything you ask for in a subwoofer. This is one of the best subwoofers I’ve ever heard in my room.

David Vaughn – Sound & Vision April 2017

From the very beginning, M&K Sound has been the only speaker company to produce only satellite and subwoofer systems, the optimum configuration for film and music.

Thanks to our state of the art subwoofers and intelligently designed compact monitors, M&K Sound systems deliver all of the subtle nuances and bottom end impact the artists intended for you to experience.

And when it comes down to it, don’t we all need a little more bass in our lives?
This is THE subwoofer!

The X Series subwoofers follow the proven M&K Sound concept of front and bottom mounted dual drivers operating in push-pull in a sealed enclosure, introduced in 1988 in the legendary MX-1000 subwoofer and continually refined over the ensuing decades. The unusual front and bottom driver configuration is a clever, noninvasive way to reduce harmonic distortion.

X12 subwoofer: With dual 12” drive units, the X12 provides 226 sq. in of cone area to move and control air or 40% more surface area than the X10 and 126% more surface area than the X8, equivalent to a single 18” 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 aluminum AC shorting rings in the magnet system and aluminum 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.

M&K SOUND - CHOICE OF PROFESSIONALS

While other manufacturers were building audio dinosaurs in the form of coffin-sized boxes, M&K led the way into the future with the world’s first satellite/subwoofer system, David & Goliath in 1976. The following year, M&K Sound introduced the Volkswoofer, the world’s first subwoofer with a built-in, dedicated power amplifier. The journey began in 1973, when Walter Becker of Steely Dan commissioned M&K Sound to design a studio reference subwoofer and monitoring system for the Pretzel Logic LP mixing sessions. The result was the world’s first balanced dual-drive subwoofer and Pretzel Logic went on to become a million-selling Top Ten hit and one of Rolling Stone magazine’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Today M&K Sound loudspeakers have been chosen for the development and demonstration of the groundbreaking Dolby Digital cinema and home surround format, for the first public demonstration of the high-resolution Blu-ray disc format, for sound production on Star Wars Episodes I-III and countless other award-winning music, film and TV productions. A Who’s Who of the professional audio world – film, music, mastering and broadcast studios – continue to entrust their livelihood to M&K Sound reference monitors and powered subwoofers. The industry now state that M&K Sound speakers are the best for cinema reproduction in home or commercial grade cinemas
