For enveloping surround sound and overhead effects, the cleverly angled Krix Phonix 45 provides an immersive home theatre experience as a surround or ceiling effect speaker.
Installed vertically or horizontally, the Phonix 45 is best used in locations where the speaker would usually be considerably off-axis to the main listening position. Prime examples are the front wide, front height, top front, top rear and rear height positions. By angling the front baffle towards your seat, the high-frequency response is improved and significantly less equalisation and power are required. The speaker can also be mounted tightly into a corner.
The Phonix 45 has been designed with a shallow 124mm depth, so it can also be installed “flat” to the wall, for speaker positions that are more on-axis with the seating locations (see the installation guide for mounting options).
Ideally suited to home cinema applications, the high power handling and extension down to 45Hz make this speaker incredibly capable of delivering the most demanding soundtrack effects. 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 paper cone and surround of the bass driver have been developed to provide the smoothest possible response and a dynamic and non-fatiguing vocal mid-band.
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.
Each speaker includes a bracket and black cloth grille with an adjustable badge (horizontal or vertical orientation), ensuring the speaker looks great and is easy to install.
For the ultimate cinema experience at home, play it through Krix.
