For the movie lover with a small to medium size room, the Krix MX-5 provides big sound in a small package, allowing versatility of installation without taking up valuable space. Boasting the Krix waveguide and large mid-bass driver, movie soundtracks will be delivered with the articulation and impact you’ve always wanted.
The Krix MX-5 features five compact modules, allowing easy installation behind an acoustically transparent screen in a wall cavity, on a shelf or cabinetry, or below a projector screen. The front baffle of each module is covered with an acoustic absorbent material to absorb any sound reflecting off the back of the screen or the room itself. This assists greatly with the acoustic treatment of the room to ensure better intelligibility and overall sound performance.
The main speakers feature a 205mm mid-bass driver which has a 38mm voice coil wound on a high-powered aluminium former. The high frequency drive unit is a damped, high power, 26mm doped fabric dome tweeter, coupled with a proprietary Krix waveguide for optimum dispersion over the entire working bandwidth.
The subwoofer units feature 275mm (11”) drivers with 50mm edge-wound copper voice coil, dual spider assembly, and vented magnet assembly.
For the ultimate cinema experience at home, play it through Krix.

AV Receivers and Subwoofers
Almost all AV Receivers we have seen have a subwoofer line level output but not a subwoofer amplifier so you will need an amplifier to drive the subwoofers. Any good Class D amplifier will be good for this job and some Class D amplifiers have a built in soft limiter. Having a built in soft limiter is a bonus and this will help protect your subwoofers from inadvertent damage cause by lots of bass content. Keep in mind that all electronic equipment needs ventilation so make sure your AV Receiver and subwoofer amplifier have adequate ventilation. If you need advice about an amplifier to drive the Krix MX-5 subwoofers, give us a call or drop us an email.
AV Receivers and Output Power
Most AV Receivers will output 100W+ per channel but care should be taken not to drive the LCR (Left-Centre-Right) Modules into distortion or clipping. Clipping is not good for loudspeakers and frequent or continuous clipping will damage your Krix investment. It is a good idea to let us know what AV Receiver you are intending to use, how close you will be sitting to the loudspeakers and the size of the room. We want you to get the best experience from your Krix investment, an investment that will provide listening pleasure for many years to come.
Any good quality Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) speaker cable will do the job. We just happen to sell the Gotham brand cable but if you want to use another brand, make sure the cable has the current (amperage) capability. Some cable sold in department stores are too thin and do not have enough copper to effectively to the job. If you need any advice, give us a call or drop us an email.
