  • Dayton Audio Challenges the Perception of Budget Tower Speakers

    DAYTON, OH (January 30, 2019) – Building on the success of the MK442 center channel speaker, which was recently named Audioholics's 2018 budget bookshelf speaker of the year, Dayton Audio has announced the release of the MK442T 2-way transmission line tower speaker.

    The MK442T continues the motif of high-fi audio quality, elegant enclosure design, and engineering sophistication the MK family provides while retaining budget friendly sensibility. The new tower speaker utilizes the same driver and tweeter as the previous MK models, meaning they will flawlessly complement any MK speaker. Pairing dual 4" paper cone woofers and a 3/4" soft dome tweeter with a painstakingly designed crossover system and efficient quarter wave transmission line enclosure, the MK442T delivers a tight low end down to 40 Hz while still representing the vocal range accurately.
    The quarter wave transmission line enclosure makes it possible to produce deep articulate bass with smaller drivers and lower profile enclosures. Compared to a traditional bass reflex cabinet, a transmission line is able to produce lower bass without the worry of port resonance and turbulence. This means better bass, lower distortion and a smaller footprint.

    The crossover featured in the MK442T utilizes a 3 kHz, 2nd order low pass and a 3rd order high pass section, and was designed to deliver the smoothest, flattest frequency response possible.

    Create a complete timbre matched home theater setup; just add a pair of MK402 bookshelf speakers, an MK442 center channel and a powered subwoofer like our SUB-1500. The Dayton Audio MK442T challenges the preconceived notion that budget speaker systems sacrifice audio quality for economical pricing.

    The MK442T tower speakers stand just over 38" tall and are sold in pairs.

      Written by: Bennett Prescott

      Every loudspeaker designer should be familiar with Thiele/Small parameters1, usually abbreviated T/S. Originally defined in the 1960s, they are a simple model of how transducers behave – mostly useful for designing ported cabinets like subwoofers. In 1971 they were brought to the attention of the US audio world by A. Neville Thiele, a native Australian, and Richard H. Small, a San Diego native who moved “down
      under” to work with Thiele. This...

      By Cobi Stein

      The first electronic loudspeaker designs were introduced in the 1920s, and while there have been many improvements in component materials over the decades, not much has changed in the basic functionality of a loudspeaker: a permanent magnet interacts with an electromagnet (voice coil) to move a cone back and forth, which produces sound waves. Founded in 1966, Eminence has been a leading
      supplier of loudspeakers for professional audio, musical instrument, car audio,...
