An excellent home theater or whole house audio system begins with in-ceiling speakers that match your performance and price expectations. For customers who are very particular about sound quality, we offer the MK Series In-ceiling speakers with audiophile level components that provide extraordinary detail. Our absolute top-of-the-line, the MK850 is an 8-inch in-ceiling speaker that delivers a new level of performance for its price range. If you're the kind of listener or movie fanatic who hears every little audio detail, this speaker is the right match.
Underneath the Grill
We call the MK our Ultra Reference speakers because of the premium technologies used such as a Kevlar woofer, pivoting aluminum dome tweeter and a sophisticated crossover network. These components combine to provide deep bass and exceptional top-end frequency response. Although attention to quality is a part of all OSD Audio speakers, upgrades in material, such as Kevlar, make a difference in a good, better and best scenario. First developed in the 1960s, Kevlar has a super high strength-to-weight ratio and responds note for note without coloration, even when you crank up the volume. In addition, the MK850 has front-mounted contour switches that allow users to tailor frequency response to their room arrangement, and therefore compensate for wood floors, stone floor, carpet, etc.
Common Applications of the MK Series
With its 8-inch Kevlar woofer and high end components, the MK Series is not for background music. You will hear detail and customers tend to use these in-ceiling speakers in home theaters or listening rooms. The MK850 performs exceptionally well in large home theaters or rooms over 140 square feet. These speakers come complete with mounting templates and instructions and have paintable grilles/frames to match any décor.
For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.
With a look deriving from famous World War II British Spitfire Jets, a new sophisticated crossover and the best component materials available, the MK850 Spitfire Ultra Reference Series are the best ceiling speakers on the market. Premium technologies such as Kevlar woofers, pivoting aluminum dome tweeters and sophisticated crossovers provide deep bass and exceptional top-end frequency response.
Kevlar is the best component for woofers. It responds note for note without coloration and has big cranking power so you can dial up your system for higher listening levels.
The contour switches will let you tailor frequency response to your room arrangement. You won't find yourself wishing for more or less treble, midrange or bass output from one speaker just because you don't happen to sit right between them.
