No in the market right now, but looking closely at them. Thank you.
I would prefer this version of the box. http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=139529.0

I am also a bit confused which tweeter is in the NX-Oticas, some use a dome tweeter some something that looks like Neo3.
Does the dust cap in midrange drivers have to be bronze in color?

That box Peter is building is for the X-Otica. It uses the X-Series dome tweeter. That kit is available for $1,295. It does not include cabinets, but cabinet plans are available.

The NX-Otica is the same basic speaker but uses the Neo tweeter in a wave guide. That kit comes with the CNC'ed flat pack and is $2,195.

The drivers in the MTM section are our M165NQ woofers (16 ohm version). They don't have a dust cap. That is a solid Aluminum phase plug that is Copper coated and anodized.

Is there a link where one could see the NX Otica specs (crossover frequencies, how much power they need etc.) ?

You can see all the measurements in this thread documenting the development. http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=138009.0

More measurements made during development are here: http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=138009.40

the final measurements are on the first page of this thread.

The are an 8 ohm speaker dipping to 4 ohms in the top end. And the sensitivity is 93db. I am driving them to solid levels with a chip amp that produces cleanly about 8 watts.

You'll have seen a lot of Jay's (Captainhemo's) work looking through the threads.  He is wonderful in working with you produce cabinets that suit your tastes and would be a great source of sub cabinets as well as cabinets for the NX-Otticas.  I couldn't give a higher recommendation. :thumb:

Danny's work literally speaks for itself. :)  I have the Wedgies here, which foreshadowed the NX-Otticas.  It's difficult to imagine better sound than the Wedgies produce, but I have no doubt that Danny has done it again with the -Otticas.

I've always been more than impressed with the NX-Ottica/OB  H-frame combo , last night  we paired them with Don's new  mono's and I now have a new appreciation of just how good these speakers really are,  unreal :roll:
Danny,  get those  big blue monsters fixed and have a listen  :)

As soon as I get settled in from the move to our new location I'll update the website with the new models. Right now everything not on the website can be ordered by calling.

Hello all,
First post from long time lurker. I am in the process of putting together the NX-Oticas with the OB3-12 subs. I am hoping this will be my main system sound for a long time (or my wife may terminate me). Currently addicted to the open back sound with the Spatial M3 Turbo S and can’t go back to box sound. Danny and Jay are very approachable and helpful. When everything arrives I will try to post my progress. Thanks to all on this forum for making it a positive place to learn.
