Kii THREE BXT

Turn your Kii THREE into a floor standing loudspeaker

Upgrade your Kii THREEs

Kii THREE BXT

The BXT is an extension module which turns the Kii THREE into a veritable floor standing loudspeaker with 16 additional drivers and a total of 7000 Watts.

Low/Mid frequency extension cabinet for Kii THREE.  8 drivers with 4 x 500 WATT CLASS D Amplification. Fully integrated in Active Wave Focusing of Kii THREE

Elegant but powerful

Kii THREE BXT System in glossy white

The BXT makes full use of the Kii THREEs technology and adds more frequency range and SPL to the game while still being a cardioid system that, despite its size, does not interact with the room. Astoundingly enough small rooms profit a lot from the line source concept.

Please note that existing Kii THREEs can be upgraded at any time with the BXTs giving you full investment security. Also the Kii THREEs are still transportable and can be run by themselves just by detaching them from the BXT. The Kii THREEs will detect the presence of a BXT and automatically adjust the software accordingly.

Kii Technology

Each Kii THREE contains six channels of DSP, D/A conversion and power amplification. Few companies could pull off such a densely packed design with truly world class performance electronics. But then again, few active speakers are designed by people who have previously turned high end power amplification and digital conversion around.

Each Kii THREE holds 6x250W power amplifier boards, designed by Bruno Putzeys using the latest iteration of the Ncore class D technology which he invented for Hypex. Unique to the implementation used in the Kii THREE is a combined voltage/current control loop that goes beyond merely a better amp – it actively improves the distortion performance of the drive units which contributes significantly to the extreme resolution of the speaker.

Naturally, this means that the performance of the AD/DA conversion has to match that of the amps. This task fell to Bart van der Laan who has a long track record designing DSP and converter boards for high-end professional audio equipment. Kii Audio’s implementation is a runaway success: a complete pass through the AD/DA circuitry of the THREE’s signal processing board is entirely inaudible, a feat not duplicated by the most expensive audiophile standalone units.

Alongside the Active Wave Focusing filters the DSP is responsible for keeping the drive units within their safe operating range by gently adapting the filters instead of brutally limiting the signal, allowing the THREE to play significantly louder and cleaner than much bigger traditional designs.

On the input side there is a choice of analogue, digital inputs. All digital inputs are up-sampled and reclocked using Kii’s own jitter rejection algorithm that guarantees actual “bits is bits” audio performance for any digital source.

The electronics package alone sets a milestone. What it does in concert with the unique acoustic design defies imagination. You have to hear it to realise the magnitude of the revolution the Kii THREE represents.
