Krix Phoenix loudspeaker

Once upon a time twenty five years ago we sold a loudspeaker called the Krix Lyrix ... all Krix speakers have to end in "ix" by the way ... it's a peculiarity they are allowed after being a successful business for forty years.


The Lyrix was a fantastic D'Appolito floorstanding loudspeaker in an era of humdrum "system" speakers. When they were released most speakers purchased in Australia were essentially hollow chipboard boxes with arbitrary drive units intended as furniture for colourful system packages.


The Lyrix were a speaker that a serious enthusiast could appreciate. I recall how very good the wood finish of these speakers would smell when we unpacked them.


The Phoenix is the Lyrix evolved for the second decade of the 21st century with bass presence and detail that is outstanding in its price class. A great all rounder for medium and large room music and cinema reproduction, and they still smell good ...

Once upon a time twenty five years ago we sold a loudspeaker called the Krix Lyrix ... all Krix speakers have to end in "ix" by the way ... its a peculiarity they are allowed after being a successful business for forty years.

The Lyrix was a fantastic D'Appolito floorstanding loudspeaker in an era of humdrum "system" speakers that needed a serious enthusiast to understand their value. I recall how very good the wood finish of these speakers would smell when we unpacked them.

 What's different in the Phoenix Mk2? The Phoenix Mk 2 has been redesigned from the ground up, to offer marked improvements in performance and a sleeker more contemporary appearance.

The woofers' magnetic size has increased by 50% and voice coil diameter increased from 25mm to 33mm to offer higher sensitivity, greater power handling and tighter more articulate bass. The tweeter has been replaced by the same ring radiating tweeter used in Krix's flagship model, the Neuphonix, for added vocal warmth and smooth, revealing upper treble.

The cabinet has also undergone a radical overhaul departing from Krix's traditional picture-frame style box construction in place of a new fully mitred construction technique creating a much cleaner aesthetic free from all visible panel joints. The new construction also results in less MDF wastage, utilising waste material to create an interlocking internal 'X' brace system for added box rigidity and internal standing wave suppression. The speaker box plinth has also been replaced by Krix proprietary rubber feet for improved acoustic isolation on hard and soft floor surfaces.
