How do you run them now? The SS-150 is a di-pole, direct and tri-pole. General rule I go by is how close do folks sit to the side speakers. If they are not too close, direct is fine, otherwise di-pole can help. Also, do you play multi-channel music? Directs tend to be preferred for that. In the end, you gave the best answer. Test what you like. Nothing any of us can say, can beat that.

Goo B Gone. Works like a charm, but keep if off your teeters and woofers. It tends to undo some glues.

That may be best. Save the foam in case you ever need to replace a tweeter.

I have 4 SS-150THXs for my 7.1 setup and they are all set for di-pole. They are about 3-4' from the closest seat (when I buy them). I like them set like that because they seem to diffuse the surround channels more and aren't easily pin pointed when something is transmitted from them during a movie. Strangely though, I live listenening to music using my receivers 7.1 Stereo setting and you would think the sound is coming straight out of the front!

The auto set up does set my surrounds 2-3dB hotter than the fronts (S150's) and that is measured at almost a dead center in the room (front row center).

Fellow MK owners. I asked about which room to use for my HT setup in the general HT sub forum and got no hits, maybe because they don't know my speakers.

Please take a look and give me a few comments, Thanks.

Which room to use?

Currently have s150thx L C R and SS150T surrounds in 5.1 setup, would a pair S-80 speakers sound ok as rear surrounds?
post #3365 of 3633
The outer magnet on my MX-350 (internal) speaker has separated from the inner magnet. Any suggestions for what adhesive I should use to re-attach it? Also, should there be two magnets attached to the bottom speaker as well?

I like the room one option for your HT setup with your M&K speakers, mostly because of that window behind the plasma tv in room 2. I own the exact same speakers with four ss-150s as surrounds, but the s-80s will sound great in the rears with your ss-150s as the side surrounds.

However, I understand that nearly square rooms are challenging acoustically..addressing your direct question about which room might sound better.

So, if within your budget, 2 subwoofers would really help your room's bass response and I hope a sub was in your plans since the M&Ks are great down to about 80hz (you didn't mention any subs).

Your speakers also would sound best with a powerful receiver or amp since they are 4 ohms and a bit inefficient. Lastly, I have had the best sound with my challenging room acoustics and these speakers, with my preamp that has Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room correction.

Hope this helps.

And is the (magnetically sheilding) bucking magnet really necessary if the subwoofer is not located near a CRT? Does it affect the performance of the subwoofer in any way?

Before I go public with this , I figured I'd see if anyone here is in the market for a PREMIUM M&K Center channel.
I've got an extra S-100B Center Channel ( Shielded) - grill cloth could use a refresh, otherwise it's in great shape.
shoot me a message if interested.
post #3370 of 3633
Anyone know how this would match up to the S1-C's?

If you're asking about the S-100B Center, it would have been the center channel that M&K would have recommended for their top tier speakers. ( S-1c, S-100b, and even the S-5000thx Unless you were going with a third s-5000thx or S-90 which wasn't available until later). The S-150THX has it's own "matched" center ( although the S-100B is in fact similar without the directionality required by THX certification and can be substituted with no issue )

I use an S-100B Center with my S-5000THX although lately I've been running 5 S-100b in anticipation of selling the S-5000thx. - only due to space limitations in the room my HT is set up in.

I'll post a few pics later.
post #3372 of 3633
Some pics as promised




and of course my friends the S-5000THX which need just a bit of minor TLC and a pair of foam blocks that sit just between the upper an lower tweeter. The grill cloths need to be replaced but the foam blocks used to direct sound in the grill frames are intact.



I'll host a link to the S-90 data sheet. - a very interesting read for S5000THX owners. especially those who are looking for a Center Channel that matches their S-5000THX mains.

Hey guys,

I recently upgraded to 5 x S150Ps but I think I need a different speakers set for the rear surrounds. I'm not getting as good as ambient sounds for the surround effects as I would like to get. The fronts are awesome paired up with two Seaton Submersives HP.

I forgot to mention that I have 1 pair of SS-150THX for rear surrounds and using 2 x S150Ps for rear back.

some questions.

1. IF I were to decide to sell the S150Ps (pair) any ideas on how to price them fairly? Conditions are 8/10. I also have the ST1 stands etc..
2. What rear back speakers would work well with this setup? Are there better speakers for rear back applications?
3. Is it absolutely critical to match the rear surrounds and rear backs to the fronts (friend of mine swears by Mirage OMD rears)

thanks,

point1

If you can voice match, do it. There are a number of different speakers that will match/compliment your S150P's (I forget the model numbers, but there was a powered equivalent of the SS-250, as well as some pro speakers that added 6.5" drivers in addition to the side-firing 3" speakers. There is also always passive. The "omnipolar" design of the Mirage speakers is neat and great for surround use, but you'll be disappointed by the way they sound.

On that note, I have a need to liquidate. Before taking everything to ebay, I figured I'd throw the items up here:

S-150 L/AC/R (first-generation, 8.5-9/10 overall cosmetic)
S-150 L/AC empty cabinets
S-85 L/R (9.5/10 cosmetic)
SS-500 pair (10/10)

As they don't suite my current setup as well as I'd like, I may consider selling my pair of SS-250's if I can get the right price for them, and just keep the SS500's as surrounds. I'm looking to get close to fair market value on everything listed above (read: not looking to give them away), but am willing to work with a reasonable buyer if one shows up. athruc -at- gmail.com

I know that this has been slightly asked and answered throughout this thread, but I can't find a definitive answer with a part number!

I have 5 S100's that I need wall mounts for. Ideally, this would be five ST-WALL-TILT brackets, but they are dang hard to find! What are my options?
post #3380 of 3633
Looking to buy any S-150P, SS-150P or the professional version MPS-2510P or MPS-2525P. Must be in good shape and all original parts. Thanks much

I presume the overstock MK is from the newer company based overseas (not vintage M&K)?

Finally found a set of FIVE ST-WALL-TILT brackets for my S-150s!!!! Stoked to get them up on the wall this weekend!!!
post #3388 of 3633
i have 3 S-90 M&K speakers with one being shielded for the center channel.
They work perfectly and the exterior is black wood with some minor blemishes that could be repainted to look new.
I'm asking $150 for each speaker plus you would have to pay for shipping from Southern Ohio. USA.

Let me know if you are interested. I also have the subwoofer that needs some work and two rear bookshelf speakers.

i'm sure we can work something out if interested.

Thanks

Hello,

I just bought a pair of M&K SV-100B speakers. The mids and tweeters are in great shape, but one woofer and its amp are bad. I would appreciate any help on how to get parts, manual and /or specifications. Even with just one woofer and amp, they sound spectacular. I prefer their sound over my Snell K's. Not sure yet if I like them better than my Snell A's. What I know is that M&K apparently also made the SV-200B model, but I have found no info on the SV-100B's. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.confused.gif
post #3390 of 3633
Does anyone know if the MK-Z53TVC 4 ohm (raw) driver is a good substitute for MK-Z50TVC 4 ohm driver?

I have to replace some Z50's and have the ability to get some Z53's, enough to do a complete swap, but am unsure of the specs of either to determine if I'll be okay.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
