Featuring a 1,200 Watt power rating, the full range XRT1.1K is an exceptional speaker in its own right. With its more user-friendly size that is 14″ (35 cm) shorter and 173 lbs (78 kg) lighter than the XRT2.1K, the XRT1.1K can more comfortably fit in a wider variety of homes. While not as large as the XRT2.1K, the XRT1.1K is still an extraordinary loudspeaker that produces a powerful aural experience and sonic performance that can easily fill a room with astonishing musicality.
The ported, 4-way XRT1.1K uses our line array design to yield an even and wide sound field, producing exceptional stereo imaging in nearly all listening positions. It uses a total of 70 individual drivers consisting of (4) 6.5 woofers, (2) 6.5 low frequency midranges, (24) 2 upper frequency midranges, and (40) ¾ tweeters.
Utilizing capacitors and inductors with low loss and high current capacity, the crossover network is engineered to ensure an even frequency response over the entire audible range. The type of inductor used in each section of the network has been specially chosen for high linearity, even at high power levels. Like the XRT2.1K, the XRT1.1K looks as striking as it sounds. The bass cabinet is finished with 7 layers of high gloss piano black paint and has touches of brushed and black aluminum. The line array features hints of the classic McIntosh front panel with a black center section and silver trim.
The speaker grilles feature black knit cloth with high gloss trim; the grilles are easily removed via their magnetic fasteners to expose the drivers. The base plate is made of machined aluminum and glass. It has 4 adjustable feet that allow the speaker to make perfect contact with the floor, thus eliminating a possible source of distortion or vibration. The speaker cables are securely attached via our gold-plated Solid Cinch™ speaker binding posts that prevent the cables from coming loose. Separate pairs of binding posts are available for the mid/high, low and subwoofer frequencies to allow for tri-amping or tri-wiring.
