Dayton Audio MK442T 2-way Transmission Line Speakers

Dayton Audio likes to push what’s possible when it comes to price performance ratios. The new MK442T transmission line towers continue that tradition.


New from Dayton Audio is a slim transmission-line tower called the MK442T with a list price of $304 per pair and a street price of $228 per pair.

These are being sold as parts of 5.1 kits, with a center channel, surrounds and a sub, for prices ranging between $399 (8″ sub) and $499 (15″ sub). This speaker system utilizes a transmission line design, which allows its dual 4 inch paper cone woofers to dig down to 40 Hz. These woofers are paired with a three-quarter inch soft dome tweeter.

According to Dayton, the speakers utilize a second order low-pass, third order high-pass crossover centered around 3 kHz and feature a smooth, flat frequency response. The specified frequency response is 40 Hz to 20,000 Hz, with a sensitivity of 87 dB 1W/1m. Cabinet dimensions are 38.1″ H x 5.7″ W x 9.6″ D and a pair weigh 40 pounds.

Speaking of the 5.1 kits, these are timbre-matched speakers that are designed to blend with Dayton MK402 bookshelf speakers as well as the MK442 center channel speaker. Toss in the 15 inch SUB1500 and you’ve got quite a capable piece of kit for very few dollars.

These speakers can handle 80 W RMS and 160 W peak power. They are rated at 4 ohms impedance, so you’ll get more power out of your amplifier—just make sure your AV receiver is 4 ohm compatible.
