RBH has just introduced sonic upgrades and a complete visual redesign to their MC Theater Series lineup of home theater speakers. Dubbed the MKII series, these redesigned speakers take the MC Theater Series and turn it up a notch in performance and aesthetic appeal.
For consumers familiar with the original MC Theater Series, the MKII aesthetic improvements are evident. The redesigned baffle and countersunk woofers make for a more attractive speaker when the grill is off and hides the “mechanics” of the speaker such as the screws securing the woofers to the cabinet. The new Resonance Damping Alloy Baffle™ (RDAB) functions to dampen cabinet vibrations and minimize tweeter diffraction.
In the place of the old swiveling tweeter is a newly designed tweeter utilizing a ceramic magnet that offers power handling capabilities and better high frequency extension.
The new speakers still feature woofers made of proprietary aluminum cone technology—the same technology featured on RBH’s flagship products. According to RBH the driver’s inherent stiffness, low mass and self-damping properties allow them to deliver crisp, clear sound with immediacy and accuracy. The crossover networks have also been revamped to accommodate the new design for a seamless integration of all the drivers.
The MC Theater Series MKII line up of speakers includes two bookshelves (MC-4C MKII, MC6C MKII), two center channel speakers (MC-414 MKII, MC-616 MKII [new model]), a pair of towers (MC-6CT MKII), and two subwoofers available either powered, or passive (TS-10A, TS-12A). All speakers are available in black oak veneer finish and are shipping now.
