The new MQ84 is a four-way speaker that features a pair of eight-inch aluminum cone woofers for the mid-bass, a pro-audio compression driver coupled to a precise 20-degree by 90-degree horn for the mids, a quad-tweeter array consisting of four 25mm titanium dome tweeters for the highs, and another single 25mm titanium dome tweeter for the ultra-high frequencies. The MQ84 ($5,500 each) has a built-in passive crossover, but James also offers the MQ84A ($4,800 each) with an external active multichannel amplifier/crossover.
From James Loudspeaker
James Loudspeaker has announced the addition of the MQ84/MQ84A mid/high frequency modules to their Mavericks home theater lineup.
The Mavericks speaker system was specifically developed for ultra-high output home theater applications, delivering ultra-wide bandwidth and extremely low distortion along with the tremendous dynamic capability required to create a stunning cinema experience. The MQ84/MQ84A is a four-way loudspeaker available either with a built-in passive crossover (MQ84) or with an optional external active multichannel amplifier/crossover (MQ84A), providing theater design specialists and custom integrators with ample flexibility to achieve their exact system design objectives. The MQ84/MA84A has been constructed to the exact dimensions of the M152 dual 15-inch subwoofer, creating a stackable no-compromise full-range loudspeaker solution for the ultimate high-resolution home or commercial theater.
The MQ84/MQ84A loudspeaker delivers high efficiency and power handling through a broad frequency spectrum attributed to the finest internal components and masterful engineering. Tapping into the company's roots in large venue sound reinforcement, the James Loudspeaker MQ84 utilizes a pro-audio compression driver coupled to a precise 20-degree x 90-degree precision coverage horn. This is an uncompromising approach to clarity in the vocal range so vital to an engaging cinematic experience. For the high-frequency range, a proprietary and precisely angled quad tweeter array consisting of four 25-millimeter titanium dome tweeters is employed, giving the MQ84 very high output and power handling capabilities. A single 25-millimeter titanium dome tweeter is utilized for ultra-high frequencies. The MQ84's mid-bass frequencies are handled authoritatively by a pair of eight-inch aluminum-cone woofers coupled to a shallow wave guide for increased efficiency.
"The MQ84 and MQ84A have been designed to deliver the ultimate immersive audio experience--lifelike dynamics and high output without any compression of the signal," explained Michael Park, CTO at James Loudspeaker. "The enclosure geometry and internal bracing have been engineered to minimize loss of energy through vibration. The proprietary drivers are all of the highest quality. This is a loudspeaker capable of both the visceral impact and stunning musicality that together present a movie soundtrack or live concert event as the producers and directors had intended," Park stated.
The James Loudspeaker MQ84 has an MSRP of $5,500 each, the MQ84A has an MSRP of $4,800 each. Both products are available now exclusively through authorized James Loudspeaker theater design and installation specialists.
