As a teenager Scott Krix was in love with sound. Scott tinkered in the garage with kit amplifiers, and made experimental speakers with scavenged drivers from old radios. Scott had a dream to make Australian speakers that could compete successfully on the world market.

More than 34 years on, Scott’s dream is now a reality. The Krix team manufacture high quality loudspeakers for home and commercial use. With close to 2100 commercial cinema installations globally, you have possibly already experienced Krix sound.

Distributed throughout the world, Krix are at the leading edge of loudspeaker design. Utilising the latest test equipment, 3D modelling and computer simulated design technology, Krix’s innovative research and development team are a pioneering force in the Australian loudspeaker industry.

Whether you are looking for your first pair of stereo speakers or your own ultimate home theatre experience, Krix will exceed your expectations. Krix’s range of loudspeakers deliver the experience of sound.

Brix is designed to be small in size yet big in sound, delivering detailed accuracy and stunning clarity. Versatile for any application, from compact stereo speakers, rear channel speakers in your surround sound system or for use in a second zone, Brix are ideal. The two-way bass reflex design features a 25mm textile dome tweeter and a 100mm diameter bass driver. Brix is a little speaker that will offer a dynamic experience.

“What was simply stunning was the stereo imaging that’s possible with the Brix, particularly if you stand-mount them around a metre out from a rear wall. With some careful positioning, we were rewarded with sound that was almost headphone-like in its spatial treatment of the two channels.”

Developed to dispel the myth that small speakers cannot sound big, the

Equinox delivers phenomenal sound for size. For use in any high fidelity application, the Equinox has no competition in this class. Featuring ultra low flux leakage shielding on the 130mm bass driver and

28mm tweeter, the Equinox can be placed close to your television. Equinox are a phenomenal experience.

“A High End Loudspeaker For A Bargain Price – The question must be: what faults has this little boy? My skilled and experienced friend has also had problems to point out any serious faults in the three weeks while the

Krix Equinox have played daily, both as a test object and purely and simply as a music promoter. Possible faults must lie in the limitations, which is the actual size. Facts are that this product must have been subject to a long, and at times laborious amount of tweaking and maturing with a producer who has gone to unusually professional lengths to make it work.”

The KDX Loudspeaker System comprises the KDX-M (main/rear) and the

KDX-C (centre). Although designed primarily for a 5, 6 or 7 channel digital sound experience, the KDX system is also the basis for a high quality stereo system in a compact bookshelf design. The major focus is to provide precise timbral matching to the left, centre, right and rear channel which is achieved by using identical cabinets, dual 130mm bass drivers and 26mm tweeter for each loudspeaker. Available as pairs (KDX-M) or as a single unit (KDX-C) the digital dimension is a must to experience.

“Not only do the KDX deliver the cinematic goods in exemplary style, they’re one for the cerebral music lover too.”

Centrix is specifically designed to be used in larger home theatre systems, delivering perfect reproduction of dialogue and stunning centre channel effects.

As with the other Krix centre channel designs, the 26mm tweeter is located between the 130mm bass drivers to maximise vocal locality and intelligibility. Internal cross bracing and shielding permits your large screen television to sit directly on top of the speaker without magnetic interference to the screen.

“A good test for any system is the human voice. Our ears are extremely sensitive to the frequency range in voices, and it is very apparent when the voice is not being reproduced faithfully…Of course, no speaker can fool a person into believing the singer is actually in the room, but some of them come oh so close. The Krix fall into that category.”

Apex offers a smooth sophisticated listening experience. Apex has a 165mm bass driver and a 28mm tweeter in a compact floor standing cabinet, an elegant addition to your living room. Apex’s superb stereo imaging and depth has plenty of low frequency and exceptional lower midrange tones.

“The design work put into the integration of bass driver and tweeter seems to have paid off with the result that the midband sounds effortlessly natural and unforced.

It’s a tricky balance to achieve with a 2-way design, but in this case it works a treat. There’s an impressive degree of attack and enthusiasm generated by the Apex with a tuneful and articulate bottom end that lends ample weight to the track and there’s no shortage of speed or resolution either.

There’s a lot to like about the sound quality of these new

Apex speakers and the build quality is also up to Krix’s usual high standards. These new Krix Apex’s are still great value and even more of a hoot’n little speaker than ever before.”

The Phoenix have risen from the ashes of what was unquestionably Krix’s most awarded and respected loudspeaker, the Lyrix / Lyrix Gold. Tonal depth, imaging and balanced musicality are highlights in this slim floorstanding design. Involve yourself in the experience of sound with the Phoenix.

“Commencing then with Pavarotti in the role of Lieutenant

B. F Pinkerton in Decca’s 1974 recording of Madama

Butterfly, the Phoenix gave tremendous body and depth to the tenor’s voice. In the upper register, the ‘King of the High

C’ himself sounded assured and grain free through the Krix tweeters. The overall sound was full and satisfying with lovely amounts of tight bass. With the Miles Davis recording

‘Round About Midnight’, the Krix were open and transparent when playing Miles’ solos, yet bopped along with the rest of the band when the tempo picked up. The transparency could be put down to a couple of things, but I think it is the crossover which must take most of the credit here. I’m sure it was a process of careful listening and adjustment during the development phase.”

Symphonix is an elegant slim line floor standing speaker featuring an identical driver layout to that of the Phoenix, but with a different 26mm tweeter between the two 165mm bass drivers. Tonal quality is well integrated with graceful seamless sound and perfect stereo imaging. Due to their high efficiency the Symphonix can be integrated with moderately powered amplifiers or can form part of an earth shattering home theatre system in larger rooms.

“The extreme treble was beautifully fluid, smooth and soft…Stereo imaging was another stand-out area of performance, with these Krix speakers giving a very real impression not only left / right across the stage, but also of stage depth and image height.”

Neuphonix is involving, high energy, get up and move sound. Be excited by these elegantly refined speakers. The unique six driver arrangement has been designed for unprecedented reactive sound. Four custom designed 130mm bass drivers have speed, clarity and high power handling.

With a single 130mm dedicated midrange and 26mm super audio tweeter you have extended frequency response to 40kHz. The bass response is exceptional; just see if you can stay seated.

“…The use of four smaller bass drivers in place of one large one means that just as much bass energy is being sent out into the room while the speakers, dynamically at least, can still stop on a 20 cent piece.”

The basic criteria for a subwoofer is to reproduce very low frequency energy. Krix’s range of subwoofers do just that.

The range features paper cone drivers for high level low frequency reinforcement, clipping protection and automatic switch on circuitry when a signal is detected. Compliment your stereo or home theatre system with a subwoofer to experience a cinema performance in your own home.

When space is at a premium, the Seismix 1 will deliver a small space, big bass experience. Precisely the same 200 watt amplifier and 250mm bass driver as used in the Seismix 3 are presented in a more compact enclosure, trimmer in depth, width and height. It’s easier to fit into existing cabinetry and ideal for apartment living while still enriching your home theatre experience with generous, textural bass energy.

“It’s inevitable the Seismix 1 mk1 will be compared with the

Seismix 3 mk3, and my guess is that the decision as to which you’ll buy will depend mostly on whether you’re a ‘glass half empty’ person, or a ‘glass half full’ type, as well as on the size of your listening room. But in smaller rooms, I think the performance of the Seismix 1 mk1 would be all but indistinguishable from that of the larger model, particularly if you have the opportunity to extract maximum performance by positioning it in a corner. Either way, you can be assured of getting top performance for your dollar.”

The Seismix 3 active subwoofer is a compact design and is very room friendly regarding placement. Seismix 3 has a 200 watt amplifier with adjustable volume and low pass controls on the rear panel. The front firing

250mm bass driver was designed with an emphasis on musicality and true low frequency performance. Enhance your movie experience with Seismix 3 deep bass.

“The usual rule is that a subwoofer has either to be large or expensive – or both – in order to deliver greatsounding bass. Krix’s Seismix 3 mk3 is an exception, because it’s neither large nor expensive, yet still manages to deliver great-sounding, powerful bass.”

The Seismix 5 active subwoofer features intelligent circuitry, 400 watt amplifier and front porting for easy placement into cabinets or along side walls. A single 305mm bass driver delivers chest thumping bass with precision and control. The cabinet is heavily braced to eliminate unwanted vibrations.

Seismix 5 is ground breaking in design and experience.

“The Krix made the room throb. Bass drums also had their full potency unleashed by this very dynamic subwoofer. The powerful bass drum found in the track

Penance from The Mission lacked nothing in its power and richness – even at very high listening levels. The

Krix was also a powerful performer in the world of film.

Fitting in nicely between the Holographix and Atmospherix, the Hemispherix is the third product released in the range of Krix in-ceiling speakers. Housed in a shallower and narrower enclosure than the Atmospherix, the Hemispherix uses a single 4 inch bass driver and the identical 25mm eyeball tweeter as its bigger brother. For small to medium rooms, the Hemispherix will deliver a spatial experience.

Taking on the challenge to create an unassuming high quality in-ceiling speaker,

Krix presents the Atmospherix. Based on the Equinox, the Atmospherix uses the same 130mm bass driver matched with 25mm pivot tweeter housed in an enclosure for in-ceiling installation. The enclosed design maximises and controls bass response while keeping out dust and other ceiling inhabitants. Atmospherix are ideal for an out of sight home theatre experience.

“With 7.1 channel systems now standard issue, a pair as centre rears positioned above and behind the couch would be perfect. Rear effects carry plenty of bass weight and substance in modern movie mixes, so if you fancy an in-ceiling design, it has to be able to reproduce the low stuff, which is something the Atmospherix do with ease.”

Krix provide super audio reproduction capabilities from this slim and versatile on-wall speaker making it an ideal choice for two channel or home theatre systems. Available in a range of high gloss finishes, the Tryptix are easy to install by way of the mounting brackets supplied or with the floor and table stands, which are available as optional extras.

What better way to complement the clean look and style of your wall mounted plasma/LCD screen than with the Tryptix on-wall loudspeakers.

e x p e r i e n c e a c o u s t i c v e r s a t i l i t y

Tryptix marry form and function in a stylish on-wall loudspeaker. Using dual

100mm bass drivers and a 26mm super audio tweeter the Tryptix present depth and clarity unsurpassed in a speaker of this type.

Available in high gloss black, white or silver the Tryptix are designed to complement plasma / LCD installations or for any application where space is a consideration.

Matching floor and table stands are also available making the Tryptix a highly versatile experience.

“The term ‘lifestyle’ is used a lot these days with AV components and it can often mean a lot’s been put into the look rather than the performance. Krix’s new Tryptix addresses both in equal measure. They’ll look good on the wall or native stands next to a shiny Plasma or LCD flat panel, but more importantly these are ‘proper’ home theatre loudspeakers.”
