M&K Sound (aka Miller & Kreisel) is one of the historical inventors of the subwoofer and has never lost its touch as its subs continue to provide leading-edge performance and design.
Following up on the introduction of their X+ high-end subwoofer series, M&K has announced three new “midrange” V+ Series subwoofers in the 10, 12, and 15-inch sizes. Let’s take a look at what this trio of subwoofers offers.
M&K Sound V+ Series Subwoofer Features
THX Certification: While the V10+ is designed to deliver good performance, it’s not THX Certified. However, the V12+ and 15+ are THX certified. This means that these subwoofers have been submitted and passed THX standards for application and performance.
The V12+ is THX Select Certified which means it is optimized for rooms up to 2,000 cubic feet and a 10-foot viewing distance from the screen.
The V15+ is THX Ultra Certified which means it is optimized for rooms up to 3,000 cubic feet and a 12-foot viewing distance from the screen (when two V15+ subwoofers are used together).
Subwoofer Design: The V+ series subwoofers all feature a single driver/sealed cabinet design.
Cabinet Construction: The V+ Subwoofers have a 1-inch thick MDF cabinet with 1 1/2inch Baffle and a full center brace/woofer magnet support.
Speaker Driver Construction: The V+ Drivers have a reinforced steel frame, ceramic magnet, honeycomb treated paper cone with fiberglass dust cap.
