o many would-be home
theatre owners or movie
lovers, the prospect of filling
a lounge with a full array
of loudspeakers simply isn’t
practically feasible, or aesthetically
acceptable. Those with the space and
the funds may consider a dedicated home
cinema, but most of us have to find a
workable compromise between space,
aesthetics and functionality.
As a further complication, domestic
spaces are shrinking. The expansive homes
of the 1970s have become clusters,
townhouses and apartments, where a
smaller overall footprint is still divided
into the same combination of smaller
sleeping and living spaces.
In other words, the lounge that needs
to host our home theatre kits has shrunk
over the years, making it even more
difficult to incorporate the kind of
equipment required to achieve realistic
surround sound.
Of course, this is the kind of challenge
AV system installers revel in, and there
is no shortage of potential solutions.
But in the process, attaining a satisfying
balance between convenience and
aesthetics on the one hand, and outright
sonic quality on the other, is not always
as simple.
MK Sound has long enjoyed a reputation
for sonic excellence, as evidenced by
the long list of cinematic luminaries and
sound professionals populating its client
database. And certainly, my experience
of its products has revealed an ability
to create cohesive and expansive sonic
images with a particular focus on realism
and impact.
In that context, the notion of a ‘small’

MK Sound cinema speaker package seems
to be a contradiction in terms, especially
since the main front speakers in this
system comprise relatively shallow on-
wall designs.
But before we embark on a sonic journey
to find out just what the MK Sound MP7
speaker system actually sounds like, let’s
acknowledge the specific application of a
system such as this.
In a compact room, with limited floor
space, and little scope for reconfiguration
to suit an AV system installation, the
loudspeakers will have to be compact,
unobtrusive and, ideally, versatile as far
as mounting options are concerned.
No wonder that home theatre sound
standards authority THX has acknowledged
the trend by creating a new certification
programme for compact speakers, designed
specifically to ensure that even this new
generation of relatively small speakers
is able to do realistic justice to the
dynamics and tonal range of a movie
soundtrack.
The THX Compact Speaker System
programme sets a number of key stand-
ards to ensure acceptable performance
by small home theatre speaker systems in
compact rooms (see our panel). Of Note
MK Sound says its MP7 speaker system
is the first to be specifically designed
around the new THX Compact standard,
suggesting that, if used in a room of the
correct proportions, this collection of
small speakers should still deliver the
punch and presence associated with
‘real’ home theatre.
To find out if that’s indeed the case, we
installed the system in our AV Magazine
listening room, which is perhaps a little
bigger than the THX Compact standard
suggests, but not too big to render the
exercise useless.
As provided for review, the system
under discussion here matched three
M7P speakers (in a front left, centre,
right configuration) with two M4-T
tripoles used in a surround sound mode,
while a SB12 subwoofer provided the
bottom-end foundation.

The MP7 is based on the M7 stand-
mounter, but specifically configured
for on-wall use. It’s a slim, vertically
oriented speaker, finished in glossy black
(although gloss white is also on offer),
and equipped with a magnetically
located cloth grille.
Despite the different, shallower
dimensions, the MP7 has the same
internal volume as the M7, promising
very similar performance characteristics.
The drive units have also been retained,
allowing close voice matching with the
M4-T tripole surrounds.
In all cases, the speakers employ
polymer-coated mid/bass drivers in
sealed enclosures, with soft-dome
tweeters providing the high frequencies.
Sensitivity ratings are fair, but when
coupled to a relatively low nominal
impedance, it’s clear that these speakers
deserve decent, beefy amplification,
even in the THX Compact context, to
ensure ample dynamics.
Hung from a wall, the aesthetic
effect created by the MP7s is slim and
discreet, to the point where those of
us with high sonic expectations may
consider these MKs just a little too
compact to be taken seriously.
Fortunately, we live in an era where
size doesn’t always count for everything.
I mounted the left and right front MP7s
against the wall, equidistant from our
Sony LCD panel, with the third located
horizontally directly below the display, as
required by its centre channel role.
The subwoofer was in the right front
corner, but far enough from the rear
and side walls to prevent unwanted
acoustic interaction.
The M4-Ts were also wall-suspended,
this time on the sides and towards the
rear of the listening room. These tripoles
employ a front-firing tweeter and mid/
bass driver with two compact full-range
drivers creating a diffused sound field
that allows easier and more seamless
integration of the surround channels into
the overall surround soundstage.
While MK Sound suggests that a THX-
certified AV receiver with THX Compact
will optimise the performance of the MP7
speaker set even further, we were
The THX Compact standard
sets difficult – yet achievable –
performance specifications to
meet the expectations of home
cinema customers seeking the
dynamics, impact and realism of
true surround sound, but utilising
a more compact speaker array in
smaller spaces.
Its definition of a compact
room is 4,5 m long, 3 m wide
and 2,6 m high, with a listening
distance of up to 2,4 m from
the screen.
Among the performance param-
eters set by the new THX Compact
standards are high output and
low distortion (up to 105 dBC
SPL), a flat frequency response
in the interests of clear dialogue
across a wide listening area, and
a specific focus on low-frequency
crossover points and performance
to ensure vital bass response and
smooth tonal transitions.
THX Compact is relevant across
both 2.1 and 7.1 system configu-
rations, with the subwoofer a key
component, as it is required to
provide extended low-frequency
output with tailored equalisation
for a smooth and well integrated
sound when combined with
satellite speakers.
The new THX Compact standard
is compatible with existing THX
Select2 Plus or Ultra2 Plus-certified
AV receivers, utilising an 80 Hz
crossover point. A number of
new-generation receivers also now
offer a dedicated THX Compact
set-up to ensure a perfect match.
