Are you after true cinema surround effects?. The Phonix replicates the wedge-shaped design used in Krix’s commercial cinema surround speakers, this allows it to be mounted high and away from the listener and to maintain excellent pattern control and audio coverage to all listening positions. This key design reflects Krix many years of audio experience and how to superbly create a product that is perfect for home theatre application.
Designed for on wall side and rear surround sound, the Phonix offers high power handling with low frequency extension down to 45Hz.
The hefty 165mm bass driver has a 33mm voice coil wound on high powered aluminium former, with ventilated spider and aluminium flux stabilisation ring for low distortion.
The high frequency drive unit is a specially-damped, high power, 26mm doped fabric dome tweeter. Combined with the crossover network which has been designed and built using close-tolerance, professional-grade components, the resulting sound is exceptionally smooth and well controlled.
Complete with a braced, critically-damped enclosure, finished with a neat black cloth grille, the Phonix is a beautifully designed benchmark for surround loudspeaker reproduction.
Reviews and praise for Krix Series SX
BEST BUYS AUDIO & AV MAGAZINE
For a real ‘cinema sound’ at home, it makes sense to use similar technology to the real thing, to get the experience as close as possible. But why compromise on ‘close’? The Krix Series SX range is the real thing, scaled down to fit within the constraints of the home. It proved monumental in its ability to deliver soundtracks at full throttle, yet delicate and sophisticated enough to play music at the heights of realism. Simply superb.
