The first of its kind from celebrated Australian manufacturer Krix, the LX-7 is a high-performance, passive loudspeaker available in three sizes for all but the largest TV and projector screens.

Featuring left, centre and right channels, the LX-7 redefines expectations of what a 'soundbar' can achieve. Historically, movie enthusiasts have had to choose between a sleek, soundbar-shaped speaker that fits nicely under a screen, or a powerful and dynamic movie performance. Now, thanks to Krix, there no longer needs to be a compromise.

Designed and manufactured in Australia, the LX-7 has been engineered for lounge rooms, media rooms, games rooms and dedicated home cinemas. High power handling and sensitivity ensure movie soundtracks, games and music are delivered with incredible power and dynamic range.

Krix engineers have scaled its technology from Krix's dedicated home cinema range into the shallow (142mm deep), heavily braced enclosure. Three 90 x 90 Krix short-throw waveguides significantly improve dispersion characteristics and ensure clear separation of dialogue, effects and music, putting you at the centre of your favourite movies, concerts or TV series. The 165mm (6.5") bass driver incorporates a huge 50mm (2") voice coil, reinforcing the fact that this isn't your 'usual' soundbar.

Combining the LX-7 with surround speakers, a subwoofer, and an AV receiver will create a genuine, immersive cinema soundscape without needing virtual or 'bouncing' effects. The LX-7 is tonally matched to all Krix surround and overhead speakers.

Krix Sales Manager Don McKenzie told StereoNET:

Our dealers have been asking us to bring a high-performance soundbar to the market for a while. As Krix often does, our in-house research and development team have gone above and beyond when engineering the LX-7, which is more than just a soundbar, it's a sound experience.

The sleek and modern design of the LX-7, finished in Krix Cinema Black, requires minimal space either above or below your screen and includes a removable black cloth grille. Wall mount brackets are included and offer easy installation and tilt adjustability up to 15 degrees – so you can aim the sound towards your ears for better on-axis performance. A front-facing input terminal (that accepts up to 10 AWG cable) makes installation a breeze.

The Krix LX-7 will debut at the 2023 StereoNET Melbourne Hi-Fi & AV Show, October 20-22, at the Pullman Hotel & Convention Centre. For a limited time, discounted tickets are still available online.

Available to order now, the Krix LX-7 comes in 75", 75"and 100" sizes, and will sell for $4,995 RRP in Cinema Black with grille and wall bracket. Custom sizes between 1670mm - 2260mm are also available to order for $5,495 RRP.
