The M&K Sound IW85 is a versatile recessed speaker suitable for either 2-channel or surround applications in small to medium spaces. Careful timbre matching ensures the IW85 can be combined with other M&K speaker systems for a seamless, sonic result.
The M&K Sound In-Wall Loudspeaker Ethos
The M&K Sound Frameless Architectural In-Wall loudspeaker range consists of open bafﬂe designs as well as sealed box versions of the brand’s popular satellite and on-wall models to provide wide ﬂexibility in terms of applications and acoustic preferences. The series maintains the sonic integrity that has made M&K Sound a legend for over four decades.
Unlike other In-Wall makers, M&K Sound employs the exact same drivers and crossover technologies found in their acclaimed professional and consumer reference monitors to deliver consistent sound coverage throughout the room for superior imaging in stereo and surround.
M&K Sound drive units represent the culmination of decades of intensely focused transducer innovation.
Invisible, Immersive and In the Right Place
Ever more complex surround formats such as Dolby Atmos, DTS X and Auro create an increasing need for high performance, yet concealed loudspeakers to handle installations incorporating 9 – 11 channels and beyond with discretion and style.
To deliver full-bodied performance from shallow, sealed enclosures, M&K Sound begins with the identical drivers used in their original satellite models and extensively modifies the crossover design to compensate precisely for the reduced internal volume bringing In-Wall response much closer to the frequency response of the original loudspeakers. Further revisions take into account practical considerations such as service access and, most critically, ensure easy, fast, accurate and safe installation.
The ambitious goal of the latest M&K Sound Architectural recessed speaker range has been to counterbalance the inevitable acoustic consequences of reducing internal volume to 20 – 30% of a normal cabinet, while preserving the celebrated neutrality, realism and musicality that are the signature of M&K Sound.
This level of tonal consistency and timbre matching offers unique ﬂexibility and the opportunity to mix and match speakers from across the entire M&K Sound line-up.
