One of M&K Sound’s longest-running and most popular models recently received a total update—drivers, crossover, cabinet tuning and construction. Since taking over MK Sound distribution in Australia, Indi Imports has slashed all the prices of MK Sound speakers and subwoofers, so we expect this new model—the S-150 THX—will also benefit from a considerable price reduction. Indi has yet to announce an Australian price, but in the US it sells for $US2,299.

The S-150 THX uses three high-quality 25mm polymer-coated silk soft-dome, ferro-fluid cooled dual-magnet tweeters aligned in a vertical array, that are positioned directly alongside two 133mm-diameter mineral-filled polypropylene coned bass/midrange drivers that have dual-magnet cast basket woofers. ‘The S-150 THX design is based on M&K’s professional monitors and designed to accurately reproduce music and theatre system sound in small to large size rooms,’ said Paul Riachi, of Indi Imports. ‘The S-150 THX delivers unparalleled transparency, accuracy, and dynamics while effortlessly handling voices, percussive effects, and musical instruments with life-like impact, and is timbre-matched to the MP-150 and S-150T. It was only recently shown at the ISE show and will arrive here in Australia mid-March.’

MK Sound says the S-150 design is used for sound monitoring by all the major US movie studios, including 20th Century Fox, Dolby Laboratories, DreamWorks SKG, DTS, HBO Productions, Lucasfilm, Paramount Studios, Skywalker Sound, Sony Music & Pictures, Universal Studios, Walt Disney Studios and Warner Brothers. They’re available now, exclusively in a Black Satin finish.
