Elegant but powerful

Kii THREE BXT System - Graphite Satin Metallic

 

The BXT is an extension module which turns the Kii THREE into a veritable floor standing loudspeaker with 16 additional drivers. The Kii THREE BXT System is absolutely unique as it combines a line source with horizontal directivity control! The BXT makes full use of the Kii THREEs technology and adds more frequency range and SPL to the game while still being a cardioid system that, despite its size, does not interact with the room. Astoundingly enough small rooms profit a lot from the line source concept.

Please note that existing Kii THREEs can be upgraded at any time with the BXTs giving you full investment security. Also the Kii THREEs are still transportable and can be run by themselves just by detaching them from the BXT. The Kii THREEs will detect the presence of a BXT and automatically adjust the software accordingly.

Please note that this process is reversable so you can take the Kii THREEs off and use them in a different space.

 

The Active Wave Focusing Solution

 

A loop hole in acoustics says that small directive speakers are possible - if you have enough drivers and you feed them the exact right signal. The THREE has a total of 6 (six) ways, front, side and rear, working together to throw the sound in one direction only without relying on a baffle. The THREE’s ability to direct bass is comparable to, but much better controlled than that of a traditional speaker several meters wide.

 

How do Active Wave Focusing filters work?

 Kuvahaun tulos haulle Active Wave Focusing filter
 

Active Wave Focusing filters mark a complete departure from the classical crossover filter. Instead of just splitting the spectrum into bands, it forces the specially positioned drive units to create a completely coherent wave front that is only emitted forward and behaves as though all of it came from the midrange driver.

With classical crossover filters, loudspeakers can only have a time aligned impulse response on the main axis. The animations on the right show the wave front as it’s built up by a typical modern three-way speaker with side-firing woofers. This example is crossed over at 250Hz, time aligned and phase equalised. Indeed the wave travelling towards the listener is coherent. Towards the sides and the rear the picture breaks down and the impulse is completely smeared. Also, low frequencies get emitted in all directions. In a real room (bottom animation) the sound that escapes toward the back will strike the wall behind the speaker and reflect towards the listener, who actually hears the speaker twice: once from the front and a bit later from the rear. Moving the speaker out into the room doesn't help. The overall bass balance looks better but the impulse response gets worse as the reflection now comes even later.

The animations on the right side of the GIFs show how the Active Wave Focusing method retains full time alignment all around the speaker and how the presence of the rear wall has no impact. Sonically, the effect is a very even, unusually detailed bass. Even in problematic rooms, a drum kick has that visceral thud that previously only very big or in-wall speakers could achieve.
