EXPERIENCE DETAIL

With a design based on the highly successful Harmonix Mk2, the Vortex Mk2 delivers vocal clarity, midrange depth and a dynamic bass response.  The vertical arrangement of the tweeter and midrange drivers eliminates phasing problems if seated off-axis, ensuring even sound distribution so that every seat in the room is a good one.

 

The drivers are identical to the Krix floorstanding Harmonix Mk2 main speakers, providing perfect timbral matching, delivering a full soundstage that is seamless in its transition from left to right.

 

Big, dual 165mm bass drivers come with heavy-duty voice coils, wound on high-powered aluminium formers, while the 130mm midrange driver has an oversized magnet for lower distortion. The 26mm high frequency driver, with its wave-guide plug, also ensures controlled directivity.

 

The sonic strength of the Vortex Mk2 will provide your system with the ultimate in realism, ensuring your home theatre comes alive!

 

For the ultimate sound experience at home, play it through Krix.

If you already own Krix speakers, then this is definitely the centre-channel for you. But even if you have another brand of speakers and want to upgrade your centre channel, the Krix Vortex is worth an audition. The question is more likely to be not whether it is good enough for your system, but whether your other speakers are good enough for it!
