Krix Phonix Floorstanding Speaker

Phonix

Phonix is unlike any other speaker. Developed over two years, sound guru Scott Krix took on the challenge to create a tall slim speaker with optimal sound. The unique six driver arrangement has been designed for unprecedented reactive sound. Four custom designed 5 inch bass drivers have speed, clarity and high power handling. The bass response is exceptional. Above the bass drivers, the single mid driver has a special voice coil and aluminium shorting ring to increase driver linearity and control. The tweeter uses a ring radiator design, providing detailed high frequency up to 40kHz to reproduce effects on your Super Audio CD and DVD Audio recordings.

The tweeter is flush mounted below the mid driver, and has a wave guide plug at the centre of the tweeter dome to control dispersion of higher frequencies over a wide area. Hand crafted quality construction with heavy bracing reduces panel resonance. Carpet spikes are provided to prohibit movement and avoid the loss of sound energy through fl oors. Four gold plated binding posts permit bi-wiring. Your choice of finish is available in Black Ash, Atlantic Jarrah or Beech wood veneers, with custom timber veneer or lacquered colour available by request. Phonix meets the challenge... experience high energy sound.
