The Hyperphonix 45 is a high power, high sensitivity surround and overhead speaker featuring a 45 degree baffle to deliver sound directly to your seat.
A surround or overhead speaker can be called upon to deliver high-powered movie effects, from dinosaurs roaring overhead to helicopter blades crashing into steel buildings. The latest sound formats like Dolby Atmos and DTS:X rely on these speakers for dynamic, realistic and immersive sound. Directing these effects to the main seating area while providing incredible output capability is where the compact Hyperphonix 45 speaker excels.
Installed vertically or horizontally, the Hyperphonix 45 is best used in locations where the speaker would normally be considerably off-axis to the main listening position. These positions are prevalent in almost all home cinemas – prime examples are the front wide, front height, top front, top rear, rear height and rear surround positions. By angling the speaker baffle towards your seat, the high frequency response is improved and significantly less equalisation is required.
The Hyperphonix 45 can also be installed “flat” to the wall for speaker positions that are more on-axis with the seating locations (see installation guide for mounting options). The speaker can also be mounted tightly into a corner.
Perfectly suited to home cinema applications, the Hyperphonix 45 features a newly developed 90 x 90 Krix short throw waveguide which significantly improves dispersion characteristics and increases efficiency for very high output levels. The 165mm bass driver incorporates a huge 50mm voice coil designed for high-fidelity, high-output applications.
Each speaker includes a bracket and black cloth grille with adjustable badge (horizontal or vertical orientation), ensuring the speaker looks great and is easy to install.

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.
Series SX are a home cinema fan’s dream. Built for multiple installation applications, these highly sensitive speakers can fill your dedicated room with spine-tingling, gut-wrenching cinema sound. Sound+Image Magazine agreed, and awarded the range the Custom Installation Product of the Year.
