A Reference 800Mk2-SR has the muscle and flexibility to suit the largest of AV systems and in larger rooms. With a special driver making use of Radial technology, this chassis offers heat dissipation technology from Volt Loudspeakers that removes the heat build-up within the coil assembly much more efficiently. This latest version of the Reference 800Mk2 takes the model to new heights in performance. Best suited to the larger room and in particular, large Home Theatre venues the movie experience is sure to be enhanced to levels the film director intended. Don’t be fooled though into thinking its a one-trick pony. This sub-bass system remains as agile as ever with all the features for integration in a domestic large multichannel speaker system. The reduced compression effect from the Radial driver enables the bass to be driven harder for longer with less stress on the motor assembly inside the magnet housing.
The Reference 800Mk2-SR retains the “simple to use” status, via its digital display confirming all your settings. With a 460mm Ultra Long-Throw sub-bass driver inside the large cabinet, the Reference 800Mk2-SR outputs serious SPL and it belies its short stature.

Many so-called ‘full-range’ loudspeakers cannot reproduce the low bass frequencies found on most music and movie discs, these frequencies are necessary for the accurate reproduction of the original recording to impart the natural ambiance of a real-life recording. When present, it is immediately recognisable by listeners as being closer to ‘the actual performance’. Of course, movie DVDs incorporate a dedicated bass channel for bass special effects, these being just as described, “special effects” to be precise LFE (Low-Frequency Effects). LFE should not be confused with the bass frequencies present in a normal full range sound signal being presented to the main full-range speakers. A properly designed sub-bass system will not only reproduce these bass frequencies with accuracy, but it will also augment the output of conventional stereo music with very low-frequency bass that is felt rather than heard. The result is greater audiophile fidelity in the lower and mid-band range. A system with a wider bandwidth will always sound more realistic and ultimately more entertaining, stimulating and engaging.
The only way to add these critical bass frequencies is to introduce a correctly designed sub-bass system, one which not only has the technical ability to reveal the deepest musical notes, but will also integrate seamlessly with the loudspeakers so that your system speaks with one deeper, more natural voice. The addition of an MJ sub-bass system is like no other and provides that deeper voice in a way that will have you smiling from ear to ear every time you listen to your audio system.
For 20 years, the evolving range of MJ products have delighted audiophiles and cinephiles around the world and received outstanding critical acclaim. Its superiority in providing real-life, sound-for-pound value continues unchallenged, proving that genuine sub-bass is a rare commodity, and only available from a specialist.
There is nothing quite like the realism that results from adding an MJ Sub-bass speaker to your system. Without a doubt the best musical investment to an existing system you will ever make. If you are really interested in the best music you can hear then try one. We know you won’t want to part with it.
