The IW95's make for great surrounds and in ceilings. We install many of these in this role.

I personally run IW950's all round including as in ceiling heights. They can play louder and I prefer the sealed enclosure. The shape will not affect anything. They are a loser match to the 150's too.

Okay great, thanks a lot for the information! Leaning toward IW150II LCR and IW950 for ceiling and surrounds.

Thinking about going 2 x SVS PB16-Ultra ($2300/each) though since I want big subwoofers and I can't afford 2 * X12 @ $3700/each.

+1 on the SVS subs!! Integrate well with M&Ks.

THX Home Theater Geek Podcast

Just watched this week's Scott Wilkinson's HTG episode featuring THX and their certified products. It was cool to see that THX's CTO uses MK Sound's S300 speakers in their reference room.

In the process of building a dedicated theater room. Room will be approx. 22' x 18' x 12'.
I currently own the following:
L/C/R M&K S5000 MKII
4 - Side Surrounds - M&K SS-150 Tripole
2 - Rear Surrounds - M&K SS-150 Tripole
4 - Atmos - M&K SS-150 Tripole

Amps - 2 - Emotiva XPA5 Gen2

Not sure on subs yet. I own the 5000MKII sub, but was thinking of using it for nearfield on a riser and supplementing with a pair of PSA 3600s or JTR CAPTIVATOR S2s.
I was planning on driving the L/C/R, sides, and Rears with the Emotivas, and finding a good receiver with pre-outs to drive the atmos channels.
Any suggestions on the receiver? Was trying to save a little coin vs. a pre-amp and another amp for the atmos channels.
Thoughts?

Hey guys, I hope this thread is still somewhat alive... I've been reading all the posts, and i'm only on page 52!!!

Lots of history with M&K unfortunately.

My dad is a big audiophile and I got a bunch of M&K speakers from him from his extra audio room he has. I've had them for about 5yrs now and I'm still blown away by the amazing sound quality.

I have 5x S-1b satellites and I had the M&K V-2B sub. I lost the sub due to a basement flood a month ago. I'm working with our insurance company now to get a replacement. Todays model would be the VX 12, and I'm awaiting to hear from our insurance company if they will pay the whole cost of replacement or a partial cost. They have been really good so far replacing full value of most items we lost like a Dyson vacuum, and surge protectors. But other things, they are giving us a bit of a rough time on. But that's another day's story.

My dad loves his M&K's and now he's actually using Acoustat 2+2 speakers. He loves them, but always makes comments about his M&K's

They sound so amazing. I've been to friends house's and listened to their systems and I find speakers aren't as rich sounding as the M&K's.



While my wife and I were going to be doing full house reno's this year, the flood caused a lot of damage in the basement and that is our/MY area. So I'm doing a full upgrade minus the speakers! New TV, new receiver, new HTPC and a new sub!

I hope if I have questions about my M&K's, that people are still here like Chris Hagen and others that would be able to help if the need arises.
