M&K Sound Introduces "Unplug And Play" Full -Range Monitors

B-1500 & B-1600 Deliver "Full-Range" Performance Without Requiring A Subwoofer

CHATSWORTH, Calif. (September 2, 2003) - - Miller & Kreisel Sound (M&K), the longest standing proponent of satellite -subwoofer speaker systems, introduces two breakthrough "full -range" bookshelf monitor speakers at the CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis, Indiana.

These magnetically -shielded loudspeakers are small enough to fit on bookshelves or stands, yet they produce a remarkably dynamic and powerful sound quality with bass extension to as low as 30 Hz! Both are designed for applications ranging from stereo pairs to use in the main and surround channels of full multichannel systems.

The B -1600 is a two -way loudspeaker with a 6.5" polypropylene woofer and a 1" fabric -dome Neodymium tweeter. The B -1500 is a two -way loudspeaker with a polypropylene 5.25" woofer and the same Neodymium tweeter. Both speakers feature M&K's exclusive Phase -FocusedTM crossover, which ensures that listeners hear superior imaging and smooth, extended response, regardless of where they are seated in the room.

Their full -range performance comes from the combination of high -output long -throw woofer drivers (5 ¼" in the 1500 and 6 ½" in the 1600), and the M&K Backfire Port Technology system. This rear -mounted tapered port design enhances the speakers' low -frequency output without the "smeared" sound and poor bass articulation of speakers that use front -mounted ports.

For use with M&K subwoofers, the 1500 and 1600 can be easily converted into sealed -box enclosures. Each speaker is provided with a custom foam plug fitted to the port which seals the air inside the cabinet. The resulting cabinet tuning is optimized for use with an M&K powered subwoofer at a crossover frequency of 80 Hz.

To convert the speaker from a sealed -box design to its "full -range" mode, all the user needs to do is "unplug and play!"

The MP -1500 and B -1600 are available in three finishes - black, white, and silver, each with a complementary cloth grille. All versions carry M&K's 10 year parts and labor warranty. These products are now shipping and in stock.
