Yet another NX-Otica Build Thread
« on: 21 Jan 2023, 12:18 am »
Started my NX-Otica journey this month.



Painted with with Duratex, sanded a bit and sprayed with glossy white enamel.


Ordered some cherry wood veneer. Letting it flatten out over night before trying to work with it.




Tung Oil finish.


With the drivers in.


Still need to do the wiring, build the crossovers and put the no-rez in.

I'm making these blocks to mount the tube connectors in out of a bar of cherry and finishing them the same as the sides so they will match.

This will most likely be my next upgrade.  Now that I switched to a taller 16x9 screen, the X-Statics don't look tall enough    :lol:

 :popcorn:

Hey, Danny, are you making a center channel to match the NX-Oticas?   :thumb:

Jay has had one cut for a while. I think he just needs to figure out what to do for a base to hold it all.

Yup, made, fit like a glove, need to glue and send to Danny, but yup the base is the tricky bit.

Apologies on the  delay for the  NX-C, we've been trying to catch up on   back orders and somhow this  keeps  getting pushed back.   Weather has finally  warmed up  some so   getting    more work  done....
As Don mentioned above,    we have a  small run of cabinets  done,  I'm  just  working on  finishing up a base.  Will get  this first one glued up and off to Danny for c/o  work

Got all the drivers wired up. I ran the tweeter down the same side as the low end drivers, hope that's okay in terms of cross talk.



How does my crossover layout look? There's so many inductors it's hard to keep them seperate.

Mount the small inductors at 90° to the large one and space them apart as much as possible.

Yep.   That's how I did my X-On Walls.
