Mornings after 10am CST, that way we can figure out your status and get it out the door before end of the day, assuming parts aren't the hold-up.

The main reason is just to halt any "new" orders, at least until the updates are made, esp since each model will require an updated crossover, cut sheet & the like.

So there's no worries if you put your order in already.

Ill need to ask Danny. I know a version of the MTM is currently being developed as a center channel, but I'm not sure if that will become a regular product or a one-off design.
I'll try to asking him tonight or tomorrow to see what the plan is for the MTM model, if it will become a regular product or stay an "upon request" sort of thing.

Also: Now that the majority of rhe A/V series has officially reached "End of Life" status and will be updated over the coming weeks.

Early results from a couple current prototypes have been very promising, more details will be coming once we have a couple models ready to show off! :thumb:

For the time being, their pictures will remain on the site, but they can no longer be purchased.

I should clarify:
Only the A/V Series kits are being discontinued.
They are in the process of being updated & rebranded. They will be slowly rolled back out as we work thru the cabinet & crossover design changes.

That said there are currently no plans to change the current X or NX series kits.

Sorry for the confusion! :duh:

I'm going to be wearing many hats now.. :P

As for the NX-MTM monitor, Danny is still of the opinion that the NX-Otica is still the better option, but he has some ideas for a hybrid model using the 8" Subs instead of the 4 M165 woofers. But that's still a fair ways off for now.

As it stands now, the MTMs are still on-request only, esp while we're busy with the changes coming to the A/V series, trying to ship out the backlogged NX orders..

Awesome - the $5,000 kit is just a bit daunting .....  :(

Its just a placeholder price. It should be much closer to the cost of the X-LS & SLS. You'll have to call Danny for the actual price.
