Krix Announce Helix In Ceiling Loudspeaker
Australian loudspeaker manufacturer Krix have announced the Helix, a 6" coaxial in-ceiling speaker for their concealed speaker range for custom installation.
Featuring a unique design that Krix says "provides unsurpassed performance in a very compact package". Helix takes design cues from the larger Stratospherix which are both IP54 rated models which allows for outdoor installation, while the semi-enclosed construction results in a loudspeaker with very efficient bass response and a minimal 86mm mounting depth.
A 150mm bass/mid drivers with a durable polypropylene cone and oversized, low distortion magnet system takes care of the low frequencies. While a 20mm dome tweeter is concentrically mounted within the voice coil of the bass driver, providing uniform dispersion for room-filling sound.
Michael Cox, Marketing Manager for Krix told StereoNET:
The added advantage of this configuration is that the tweeter is less affected by reverse reflections, improving performance across its operating range.
As Helix is manufactured from weather resistant materials and features a rust resistant stainless steel grille, the Helix is suitable for installation outside under alfresco areas and in eaves, or inside the house in bathrooms, ensuites, or any other room.
A fixed grille and clever ‘twist and lock’ mounting system ensures easy installation. Simply cut out the hole, connect the speaker cables and then twist into place. The low profile, white paintable grille with slim-line bevel edge matches the Krix architectural range of concealed audio solutions.
Krix Helix is available now and sold individually for $295 RRP.
