Will be very interesting how these measure up to the KK subwoofers.
Taking into account price? Or just pure performance?

Performance first and then taking cost into account I guess.
a lot of bumf in the whitepaper about how they claim to be the inventor of the subwoofer. Are there any employees still there that helped Ken design his 1st subwoofer?
Well Ken designed the first active subwoofer, and the consequent models after that too under the Miller & Kreisel (M&K) name, so unless Ken works for them...
All the details are plain as day under "history":
And of course there is Ken Kreisel's very own timeline:
Hmm seems thier claims are a little naughty then David.
That's not for me to say, but there's plenty of evidence present with a few minutes Googling.
I suppose it helps to know Ken Kreisel's history, and knowing the difference between M&K and MK Sound. It is very simple, but it seems that confusion is being created in order to make the line between the two a little 'fuzzy'.
I don't have a problem with them listing the achievements of the old company, but I don't think they should be making out that the original designers are still with them.
As awesome as the new X series should be i think they a bit late to the party....... i can't see how these will beat Ken's DXD's in performance or value.

Are MK Sound planning to bring out a speaker to replace the S150 at all?
Not unless they're replacing all versions of the S150. But you'd need to ask an MK Sound dealer about that.
Only asking as I have the itch to replace my M&K 850 LCR. I shall be upgrading to either S150s, KK new quattros or if I can hold out long enough Kens repacement for the S150.
Well MK Sound's S150 MkII is still fairly new, so I doubt they're up for replacement.
It'll be interesting to see how the Quattros compare to the S150's as they use more drive units, have dedicated front height speakers, and their surround speakers are more flexible.
There's no word on Ken's S150 replacement as yet, but you'll soon know when there is
Yes I'm really looking forward to reading reviews of the new Quattros. We all know they are going to sound superb, it's all about finding out HOW good are they going to be.
