Allied Enterprises is partnered with KRIX to provide cinema goers the most immersive sound experience. Learn more about Krix. Krix speakers have been used in over 3000 screens, in 30 countries worldwide. From its early days the company introduced ideas for professional cinema sound that had never been seen (or heard) before, and Krix continues to innovate today, being at the cutting edge of the latest ‘3D immersion sound technology’, working with Dolby to develop speakers specifically for the new Dolby Atmos format, and recently installing over 50 full Dolby Atmos theatres featuring surround sound with up to 61.3 channels of sound. WALL OF SOUND Krix’s professional cinema work began in 1980, when Scott Krix was invited to solve an acoustics problem in the auditorium of the Capri Theatre in Goodwood, South Australia. His solution of an Infinite Baffle Wall was unique, never before used anywhere in the world, and news of the innovation soon reached the ears of the major cinema chains in Australia — Hoyts, Greater Union and Village Roadshow. It wasn’t long before Krix Speaker Systems were supplying speakers and building Infinite Baffle Walls into theatres all over Australia. By 1990 some 250 cinema screen installations had been undertaken, boosted by the growth in multiplex cinemas around the country, and soon by the innovation of surround sound. In 1993 Krix received THX accreditation from Lucasfilm in the USA for its cinema surround model, the KSX-1, and subsequently for an extensive range of models. Exports of Krix cinema speakers began in earnest, with shipments being sent to New Zealand, Singapore and Thailand. In 1996 Krix was the first company in the world to introduce a dual 18-inch subwoofer model to the industry. WORLD-FIRST RANGE OF FOUR-WAY SCREEN SYSTEMS A further innovation was delivered in 2004, when after three years of development, Krix became the first company in the world to release a comprehensive range of 4-way cinema screen speakers. A well-designed 4-way system can further separate the bandwidth of a film soundtrack, spreading it over additional custom-designed speaker components to improve clarity and power handling of a system. Boosted by this world first, Krix’s installations continued apace, with supply of speakers to Hoyts Melbourne Central and Blacktown in 2005 taking the number of cinema screens in Australia using Krix to more than 650. The following year, 2006, saw Krix finalising distribution in Japan with Xebex Corporation, whose engineers visited Krix for product evaluation and training. Two large Krix installations followed in Kawasaki and Saga.
