X SERIES SUBWOOFERS
“M&K Sound calls the X12 the subwoofer, and I can’t disagree with them. I’m pretty smitten with the X-12 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 2014
The X Series subwoofers are the culmination of M&K Sound's 40 years of experience in the design of superlative sub bass systems. Intended for use in the most demanding studio applications, they are equally at home wherever the finest music or home cinema is required.
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.
That means you’ll get the active subwoofer home cinema experience you’ve been wanting with a product that professionals trust to deliver the best finished audio. And when it comes down to it, don’t we all need a little more bass in our lives?
The X Series of subwoofers follow the proven M&K Sound concept of front- and bottom-mounted dual drivers operating in a push-pull configuration. This all takes place in a sealed enclosure first 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.
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. Meanwhile, the drivers maintain full control and respond instantaneously to the incoming signal for unparalleled accuracy and authority in the bottom octaves. That makes the X-12 THX Dual 12" Active Subwoofer (as well as the 8” and 10” versions) some of the very best options for hearing audio the way it was meant to be heard — no more and no less.
