For sale is my pair of custom Selah MTMs Rick designed for me in 2009 using RAAL 70-20XR tweeters and 5" SB Acoustic mid-woofers (SB15NRXC30). I built the floor standing walnut cabinets with black bases to Rick's design specs as shown in the pictures below. These speakers were originally to be used in a smaller room with 8 foot ceilings and wood floors and I chose the MTM configuration to minimize ceiling and floor interactions. However, my stereo is now in my much larger living room so in 2014 I purchased a pair of Ottavo from Rick to replace the MTMs. In many ways these MTMs sound similar to the Ottavo above about 80Hz and are probably comparable to the Prestigio MTM. I attribute that partially to the RAAL tweeters but also Rick's incredible attention to the crossovers and choice of mid-woofer drivers. They are so nice I have been hanging on to them in hopes of finding a use for them but nothing has come up so I'm looking to find a new home for the MTMs. My asking price is $1200.
See below for payment information.
The cabinets are made from well-braced 3/4" Medium Dense Fiberboard (MDF) and covered with walnut veneer and edged with solid walnut much like Selah's production cabinets. They are finished with a durable polyurethane varnish. The bases are painted black and have adjustable floor spikes. The crossover is mounted just under a removable plate in the bottom of the base. The cloth covered grills are attached with rare earth magnets under the veneer and in the grill frame. The sealed speaker enclosure is lined with 3/4" Sonic Barrier dampening sheet from Parts Express. The speaker connections accept banana plugs, bare wire and spades and are located near the floor. Dimensions are: 10" wide at the base, 12" deep at the base and 48" tall. The RAAL tweeter is mounted 39" above the floor at approximately ear height when seated. All cabinet dimensions (internal, baffle width, etc) were specified by Rick. They have just a couple of minor scuff marks on them.
Below are the graphs Rick produced for these speakers. Please note I don't have a chart for below 200Hz. These are sealed speakers and my goal was to have the -3db point be around 80Hz. From experience I believe the -3db point is between 60Hz and 70Hz so a subwoofer is recommended. These MTMs are 4 ohm nominal.
I do not have shipping crates for these speakers so local pickup in the San Diego California area is highly recommended. I will deliver these speakers to the Los Angeles/Riverside area if purchased at my asking price. For those with a serious interest I will audition the MTMs at my home. Please PM me if you want to hear them. Payment must be in cash, via Paypal +3%, or Paypal Friends and Family prior to delivery.
Thanks for looking and send me a PM if you have any questions.
