THIS IS THE SUBWOOFER

The Bottom Line

As dedicated audiophiles with a passion for the art and science of high quality audio reproduction, the M&K Sound team strives towards the elusive goal of effortless realism. One of the many secrets behind our success in this endeavour is the fact that M&K were the first in the world to acknowledge the true importance of extended, accurate, forceful bass as embodied in the all-new X Series subwoofers.
Almost anyone can throw bass in your face, but only the M&K Sound X Series delivers bass in its place, optimally integrated in the overall sonic texture for an engaging, seamless, natural listening experience.
Having invented the subwoofer four decades ago, M&K Sound is uniquely qualified to present a new generation of superb bottom-end reproduction systems, capable of astounding, detailed low-end impact and authority.

The X Series subwoofers build on the proven M&K Sound concept of dual drivers operating in push-pull configuration in a sealed enclosure for in-room response flat to well below 20 Hz with transient speed, precision and weight that other subwoofers simply cannot match.
The X Series subwoofers follow the World Known THX program and each individual model deliver performance well within thevery strict THX requirements.

X8 subwoofer: With dual 8” drive units, the X8 provides 100 sq. in. of cone area to move and control air, equivalent to a single 12” 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.

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
