This speaker gives a large scale performance for its size with a good tight bass ,smooth, but detailed mid-band and a transparent but delicate treble. This speaker can be freestanding or placed close to a rear wall or corner. The M4s will compete with the very best of small speakers giving a smooth and very natural sound,. For best results use with an active subwoofer such as the SW4 or SW5.
The crossover is bi-wired and . It uses quality IPL and MKP polypropylene capacitors and Super power large Steel laminate inductors inductors and resistors. The M4 may also be used in closed cabinets of between 4-8 litres , and ported cabinets of between 8-13 litres (see M3M Ribbon). The crossover is mounted on the rear of the CP4L Gold bi-wired connection panel supplied with the Plus kit. The Crossover has now been improved to the same specification as the M1TLM.
