S-85 applies M&K's latest work in optimizing the real-world performance of center channel speakers. Incorporating highly useful new features, it has both the dynamic range needed for superior center channel performance and a unique ability to emulate the tonal balance of non-M&K speakers used in the left and right front channels.Horizontal center channel speakers are prone to irregular response and lobing (large off-axis dips in response) in the horizontal plane, which spoils the sound for listeners not directly in front of the speaker. M&K's Phase-Focused crossover design and driver configuration (one woofer and one tweeter) work to give unprecedented wide and smooth horizontal dispersion optimizing imaging, sound quality, and dialog intelligibility throughout the room. The S-85 brand-new crossover provides a choice of two different tonal characteristics (including our "Q-curve") to match either a room's acoustical environment, a listener's preference, or for home theater, to achieve a better timbre-match with non-M&K speakers. Like most other magnetically shielded speakers, the S-85 drivers have dual magnets. The brand-new 5 1/4" woofer driver even adds an additional shielding can.The S-85 cabinet has an angled front baffle that aims the speaker drivers more directly at listeners when the speaker is above the listening position (such as on top of a rear projection set) or when it sits below the listening position (on a low stand, shelf, or below a front projection screen). The angle was carefully calculated to give the best sound quality for a wide range of installation conditions.
