MB Quart Shipping Premium Series Speakers

LAS VEGAS, NV (12.13.2019) – Coming off the most successful new speaker launch in 10 years at SEMA, MB Quart is showcasing the new, top of the line, Premium Series speakers at CES. This new MB Quart series offering limited distribution with a full MAP policy across both Premium and Reference lines of speakers assure successful profitability.

MB Quart is showing at the Westgate, Suite 360, during CES.

Included in the new line is a reintroduction of a classic MB Quart configuration that we have not offered for several years, the PS1-316 400 Watt, 3-Way component system. This Premium audiophile system is a 3-Way component package complete with a pair of newly designed 1” Magnesium dome Widesphere technology tweeters that deliver exceptional musical reproduction of high frequencies (with a large sweet spot or off-axis listening area) plus two pairs of mid-range and mid-bass drivers.

The larger drivers start with a pair of 4” mid-range speakers (to handle higher midrange tones) and a pair of 6.5” mid-bass drivers for drums and high sub frequencies. These drivers utilize the curvilinear cone shape that MB Quart made famous and are constructed from a lightweight aerated pop paper with Mica blend. The mids and mid-bass speakers are housed in an innovative frame which is engineered with PA66 composite with 30% glass fiber added. This material renders the frame inert, eliminating harmonic distortion from vibration.

The entire package is controlled by an external three-way crossover network that will be appreciated by any audiophile for its ability to guide the proper frequencies from the amplifier into the appropriate drivers without coloring the sound. This is accomplished through the use of high tolerance, private label parts. Every model in the Premium line is engineered with the same meticulous care that we put into the PS1-316.
Brian Sherman, Vice President of Product & Marketing for Maxxsonics USA said, “At MB Quart, we put sound quality above everything else and our new Premium Series speakers are just the latest example of this approach. The use of exotic materials, like lightweight aerated pop paper cones with Mica blend and real magnesium tweeter domes, is yet another big step in performance for the MB Quart brand.”

FEATURES ACROSS THE LINE INCLUDE:

Magnesium Dome Tweeters:
1” Magnesium dome tweeter for musical reproduction of high frequencies

WideSphere Technology:
Tunable waveguide tweeter housing with removable phase lens to create a larger-than-life soundstage

Curvilinear Cone:
Lightweight aerated pop paper cone with Mica blend for strength and superior bass frequency reproduction

Low Resonant Frame
Aerospace grade PA66 composite with 30% glass fiber speaker frame to assure that no harmonic distortions affect the tone of the speaker

Audiophile Crossover
The crossover network, which guides the frequencies to each driver, is designed with tight tolerance components for superb sound quality

“These are some of the best sounding speakers MB Quart has ever offered. We’re excited to offer these speakers in new sizes and configurations in an effort to make life easier for installers,” concluded Sherman.
