Announcing McIntosh XRT1.1K

Nov 26, 2018

Following in the footsteps of the larger-than-life XRT2.1K is the equally impressive but more accessibly sized XRT1.1K Loudspeaker.

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" shorter and 173 lbs 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 McIntosh's 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 McIntosh XRT1.1K is expected to begin shipping soon, so stay tuned!
