They're a US company based in the US… so could be why they're so cheap?

There is no method of purchase or where to buy on the website which is very odd. There is also no information regarding their history etc etc. Where are people buying the goods from? All sounds a tad fishy unless anyone else knows anything to fill in the blanks?

There are also a load of these going cheap on ebay….

2 college students pulled up in a mini van while I was walking into the Burlington Mall here right outside of Boston. The van was full of them Matrix Audio stuff. I bought a set of the mx1200 speakers and also a set of the mx-605t 5.1 surround sound for about $400. All works great. My house sounds like a theatre.

Almost definitely a con…….

Although strangely enough they seem to sound ok!

The website is there purely to make you think you are getting a bargain!

They are probably made in someone’s garage somewhere in brum…..
[no offence!]

The warranty card is registered to a PO & have you checked the 2-3 PDF’s that are available from the website? - LoL

They may turn out to be OK value for £100 a speaker but for $2000 each – ROTFLMAO Smiling

Peace……

hmm… im not sure.

I've looked at the specs and, providing they say what they are, they are extremmely good quality and outperform speakers that cost a grand.

8" side-firing titanium deposit hybrid driver
2 x 6.5" titanium deposit hybrid driver
360 deg titanium tweeter all video magnetically shielded

28HZ - 30khz range is a good range, and 92Db sensitivity is also very good, seems a pretty impressive product - why are they so cheap? They're pretty much studio quality.

i came across the site because i was also offered a pair, and if you do a google search this is the first site that comes up. Any tech heads care to rate the speakers? From what i can gather they are very high qquality, maybe i'm wrong?

I bought a pair of these 6 months ago for 350 quid. Ive used them myself and am very happy with their performance. you couldnt buy a better sounding pair of speakers for the same money in any shop.
