I haven't been here in a while and it really makes me glad to see that someone from M&K is here and helping people out. I wish things would not have turned out they way they did and would love to hear the real story as to how and why someday.
I am very invested in M&K speakers and have been a longtime fan. I received my first M&K sub as a gift when I graduated from High School and it is still working at a friend's house today.
My dedicated theater has S -150s and an MX-5000 II
My media room has S-85s and an MX-150THX
My office and bedroom have VX-7 IIs
and my Great room has an MX-700
I do have some questions about the speakers that I currently have.....
On the S-150s, can you tell me a little about the design philosophy around the shape and size? IE, are all the tweeters the same and are they arranged that way as a sort of line array? What is the ideal amount of power to be fed to these speakers (I currently have a 400wpc Crown amp but can they handle more for headroom)? What is the ideal crossover point? Is 80 HZ ideal or can they be set a little higher?
On the MX5000, I am interested to hear why Sanyo woofers were chosen. I was told that these woofers hold up well to current technology. Why did they halt production? Considering there are two drivers in the MX5000, why is the amp only 400 watts when many subs today are 1000-2000 watts?
When I bought my MX5000, there was nothing that came close to it. Did M&K have any plans on the drawing board for larger more powerful subs to compete with the likes of the new JLs and others?
Sorry to inundate with so many questions. Please keep posting here, I really enjoy hearing about your progress and future plans.
