was created to pursue an ideal, namely the reproduction
of the most natural sounding, true to life bass possible
with current technology, but at a price that favours
both the wealthy and not-so-wealthy enthusiast.
The key member of the
team, John Jefferis, also the founder and designer, brings with him a wealth of knowledge gained
from extensive experience and involvement in acoustic
sound engineering, electronics, computing and cabinet-making
The audiophile, home
cinema enthusiast, professional musician and entertainment
sectors have had to pay too high a price for the attainment
of life-like sound reproduction. Continually disappointed
for years by the general acceptance of bass reproduction
that has quite rightly fitted the description "canned
music", John and his team of dedicated engineers decided to find
a solution. There are many players in the sub-woofer
field and after auditioning the majority of high-end
and better known lower-end products, it became clear
that there was an unacceptable gulf between proper bass
reproduction and cost. They set out to close this gap in 1999.
MJ Acoustics is
now the only 100% British owned specialist dedicated
subwoofer manufacturer, and as such offers that British
quintessential touch and exquisite attention to the
finest and smallest detail, which ensures adroit punch
and solid slam - without the dreaded overhang!
Bass frequencies are
the foundations of the musical spectrum. A car's performance
depends very much on it's chassis; audio and video performances
depend very much on the electrical current carrying
them; likewise, the all important mid-range depends
- for the fullest development - on properly defined
bass that is neither bloated, woolly, overbearing nor
intrusive. With this in mind, and the belief that the
single most important area for improvement to a sound
system is bass reproduction, MJ Acoustics offer the true audiophile a range of active sub-bass systems,
that gives the end user the opportunity to have
their cake and eat it.
The MJ Acoustics range
shows that top quality components, superbly designed
controls and adjustments, together with outstanding
life-like reproduction can all be had for a fraction
of the cost of other similar performing products. In
fact, sound for pound MJ Acoustics have incorporated
just about every worthwhile form of connectivity possible,
together with MOSFET amplifier stages, perfectly
matched crossover circuits, digital displays and ultra efficient drivers,
together with some innovative electronic circuitry which
normally only comes with other manufacturers' top-of-the-range
(read very expensive) models.
John feels that the
facilities and benefits which enhance the sound reproduction
of a flagship model should equally benefit the entry
level variants. It is also his belief that the sound
quality from each and every one in the range, limited
only by physical size and power output, should be the
same for all products.
Regardless of whether
a subwoofer is to occupy a small living room or fully
fledged studio, the variation is only in the physical
size and output in terms of Sound Pressure Levels required
to fill the room with a properly balanced spectrum of
sound. No other parameters are compromised between the
lowest and highest priced subwoofers in the MJ Acoustics
range. Except, that is, for price in favour of the buyer's
wallet. There is, however, a number of custom finishes
available at extra cost, for some models, which are
offered purely for aesthetic requirements.
Each unit is seriously
over-engineered with generous headroom in all important
areas. Components are hand picked and specifically designed
into each system. Our unique combination of state-of-the-art
electronics and tuned hand built cabinets, afford the
user the ultimate in sub-bass control. Deep and powerful
enough for the most demanding movie sound track, yet
subtle, agile, fast, and accurate for the highest fidelity
in music listening. Its just like beeing there!
All of this produces
a subwoofer to engender pride for MJ Acoustics as a
British Manufacturer, and for you the Customer.
Best of all its a 100%
British product made by a 100% British company in Britain!
