Acclaimed by critics as "very possibly the finest rear speaker ever created" the S150T Tripole combines the diffused, spacious sound of a dipole speaker with the immediacy and imaging capability of the best direct radiators.
Side- or rear-mounted speakers in a multi-channel audio system pose a radically different set of performance challenges relative to conventional stereo systems, because surround speakers are typically positioned much closer to the listener and deliver sound to the ears from very different angles.
Unfortunately, most multi-channel installations ignore these critical factors entirely and simply employ the same type of direct-radiating monopole drivers that have been the norm for well over a century. These conventional loudspeakers feature drivers mounted on one side only (monopole) and aimed directly at the listening position. As a result of the close proximity to the listening area, they are easily identifiable as the source of sound, failing to disappear in a credible you-are-there sonic illusion.
A costly alternative in recent decades is the dipole surround speaker with no drivers on the front directly facing the audience, but identical sets of drivers on two sides. By generating sound from one side in phase and the other out of phase (dipole) with no sound radiating directly at the listening position, dipoles successfully create a diffused sound field, but at the expense of any sound actually intended to be heard as a specific image.
The proprietary M&K Sound Tripole™ configuration, essentially two speakers mounted in a single cabinet, is the first and only technology to effectively address these major issues to deliver both image specificity and an enveloping surround field, without compromise.
The Miller & Kreisel® S150T THX Tripole™ combines both front and side mounted drivers to direct the surround image both indirectly and directly into the listening area, for a smoother, more robust surround image in perfect harmony with the front three channels. Because the S150T THX Ultra2 Tripole™ employs the same exclusive, innovative high-frequency driver as the Miller & Kreisel® S150, THX Ultra2, sonic consistency and voice matching are assured.
Available in black satin finish with black cloth grille.
The first true update to the classic M&K S150 speaker, the new Miller & Kreisel S150 redefines sound quality and performance. The S150 is still the speaker to beat when it comes to reference monitors for professional cinema sound design or stereo recording. The new Miller & Kreisel S150 builds upon that impressive legacy by updating the design with new acoustic technology refinements.
It’s hard to beat perfection. That’s why we’ve strived to perfect it. We’ve taken the innovative high-performance technologies from the S300 and integrated them into the new Miller & Kreisel S150. These upgrades bring the Miller & Kreisel S150 into the future and deliver new levels of sound quality to the most demanding customers in the world.
No coloration or hyped frequencies. What you hear is what you get. The Miller & Kreisel S150 redefines what perfection is while providing a clearer sense of presence. They deliver an impressively transparent soundstage that maintains the three-dimensionality, body, weight and emotional impact, making them an ideal choice for home theater installations.
