“For a real ‘cinema sound’ at home, it makes sense to use similar technology to the real thing, to get the experience as close as possible. But why compromise on ‘close’? The Krix Series SX range is the real thing, scaled down to fit within the constraints of the home. It proved monumental in its ability to deliver soundtracks at full throttle, yet delicate and sophisticated enough to play music at the heights of realism. Simply superb.”

For enveloping surround sound and overhead effects, the cleverly angled Phonix 45 provides an immersive home theatre experience as a surround or ceiling effect speaker. Installed vertically or horizontally, the Phonix 45 is best used in locations where the speaker would normally be considerably off-axis to the main listening position. Prime examples are the front wide, front height, top front, top rear and rear height positions. By angling the front baffle towards your seat, the high-frequency response is improved and significantly less equalisation and power are required. The speaker can also be mounted tightly into a corner.
The Phonix 45 has been designed with a shallow 124mm depth, so it can also be installed “flat” to the wall, for speaker positions that are more on-axis with the seating locations (see technical drawing for rear mount option).
Perfectly suited to home cinema applications, the high power handling and extension down to 45Hz make this speaker incredibly capable of delivering the most demanding soundtrack effects. The hefty 165mm bass driver has a 33mm voice coil wound on high powered aluminium former, with ventilated spider and aluminium flux stabilisation ring for low distortion. The paper cone and surround of the bass driver have been developed to provide the smoothest possible response and a dynamic and non-fatiguing vocal mid-band.
The high-frequency drive unit is a specially-damped, high power, 26mm doped fabric dome tweeter. Combined with the crossover network which has been designed and built using close-tolerance, professional-grade components, the resulting sound is exceptionally smooth and well-controlled.
The Phonix 45 are provided as a left and right pair, so will balance symmetrically within your room. Each speaker includes a black cloth grille and bracket, ensuring the speaker looks great and is easy to install.

“As speaker designers and avid movie enthusiasts, we are constantly looking at how and where speakers are used, so that we can engineer their design to gain the most performance from the new sound formats and speaker layouts. With more home theatre enthusiasts opting for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X speaker layouts, we saw the need to develop a version of the Phonix that angled the sound toward the listener when placed in these newer, more off-axis speaker locations. Locations such as the front wides, top fronts, top rears, front heights and rear heights. These positions are often at an angle of around 45 degrees from the primary listening position.”
