    After a lot of indecision I have finally decided to sell these MK-SS150's

    Acclaimed
    by critics as "very possibly the finest rear speaker ever created" the MK SS-150 THX Tripole® combines the diffuse, spacious sound of a dipole speaker with the immediacy and imaging capability of the best direct radiators.

    Each MK SS-150 THX Tripole® operates as two speakers at the same time: first a near-ideal point source direct radiator (on the front baffle) with an MK SOUND Phase-Focused crossover feeding its 5 ¼" woofer and 1" soft-dome tweeter.

    The second is a dipole speaker using two unique high performance 3.25" polypropylene cone mid-tweeters (with ferrofluid cooling). These drivers achieve a very smooth and transparent sound from 300 Hz through the critical midrange and beyond, due in part to the fact they operate without any midrange crossover (meaning optimum phase and sonic coherency)

    The MK SS-150 THX Tripole® gives you the best of both worlds by combining a superb front-firing direct radiator with the wide, diffuse and enveloping sound of a dipole.

    Bought in January 2010 from Al at IdealAV
    They are MK Sound SS-150THX not the old American M&K and not to be confused with the re-branded M&K Sound S-150T Tripole which cost £1495.00

    Yes bought new as part of a MK-S150 L/C/R, MX-350 system which has now been sold.
    Kept the SS-150 for rear back surround duties
    Kept in a smoke and pet free home.

    I can confirm that these speakers were indeed sold by myself (ideal av) as part of a complete MK system

    Andy @Lesmor you know these speakers are worth what you are asking so please don`t give them away, and you are correct they were and probably still are the best surround speaker ever produced

    Hi Al
    Hope you are keeping well and thanks for the input its appreciated
    I have considered selling these for some time but because they are so good kept changing my mind.
    With the introduction of Atmos/DTS:X I am now re-purposing my existing speakers so happy to let them go,at the right price.
    Thanks again
    Andy

    Do you have a link?
    I suspect that was for the Old American M&K version

    Cant see how you got confused as the advert clearly says MK, picture says MK Sound
    and as noted in post #3
    At least it explains your lowball offer
    Hopefully a pair of American M&K will come up for you sometime
    Thanks for the interest
    Andy

    Point taken Al!! although no where in the add does it state that they are mark 2's and why Tosh and myself wanted to know as at the price stated i thought that there was a possibility that they were mk 150t's .

    But yes they are great speakers have a pair myself that were bought from ideal av too!! Good luck with your sale Lesmor and thanks for clearing things up for me:)

    To clarify for anyone interested
    These are not the legacy American M&K SS-150's which went out of production.
    They are MK Sound who bought the intellectual property rights to the brand.

    I don't think there was ever a MK2 MK Sound SS-150THX
    After that they were called MK Sound S-150T
    Now re-branded to M&K Sound S-150T
    Also note that they appear to no longer be THX licensed
    In case I don't have any of that right I am sure Al will correct any error
