Test Report By Daniel Kumin December 2008
$1,200 (as tested) / MIRAGESPEAKERS.COM / 866-428-2122
A truly tiny system that doesn't sound it, with unique spatial character and some real bass extension. Did we mention it's tiny?
• About as small as speakers can get
• Surprisingly deep bass from amusingly small sub
•"Omnipolar" means a big listening area and plush, spacious sound
• Sub/sat level and crossover blending is touchy, but critical
• Finite peak-level and bass-power abilities (duh!)
• MX ($150 each): 5⁄8 -inch titanium hybrid tweeter, 2 1⁄2-inch aluminum-cone midrange; 4 3⁄8 in high, 1 1⁄2 lb
• MM-6 ($600): 6 1⁄2-inch aluminum-cone woofer, (2) 6 1⁄2-inch aluminum-cone passive radiators, 800-watt amp; 8 in high, 10 lb
The world is awash in Lilliputian subwoofer/satellite speaker systems, ranging from virtual throwaways available for $89.99 at the local big-box bazaar to high-end creations selling for 10 to 20 times as much. Several compact packages from Canada's Mirage -- now a part of the Klipsch speaker family -- fall under the latter heading, and with the MX 5.1, the company now offers one of the smallest in its class.
