Are you going to add them to the website?
Finding time during the day is always tough.

I have a lot of new stuff to add to the website. I need three or four of me.

With all you do, Danny, you're already 3 or 4 of me.

$859 for the complete kit including the CNC cut front baffle and two sheets of No Rez.

If you want you can just run an high quality inline filter to the amp powering the Studio Monitor that consists of a single cap value that will make them -3db down in the 80Hz to 100Hz range.

Then build a matching box for it to sit on that has two or even three M-165/16 woofers in it in a sealed box and power it with a separate sub woofer style plate amp. You could even use an inline filter with that plate amp to roll off the first octave and use a servo sub for the bottom end. And then you have complete control over the lower end. So it will be easy to balance the output and get a flat response in any room.

And that would be a killer combination.

Danny, these look really nice & I'm very interested in the setup you talk about here?  Any more information you could share on this?  Is there already a design out there for 2 or 3 M-165/16 woofers? I think someone may have done this setup with the Wedgies, but I can't remember. 

Or, are you going to design a full, floor standing design for this?  Thanks

Back on page  5 there is   a pic of  a  model for the front baffle   with  2 M165's.
In the  Neo3/neo10 thread (can't remember the actual name  but will try  and find it),  posted some pics of a separate stand   that  would  house   3 M165's.  It  is a  wedge shape to match that speaker but could be asily   modded to   match  these.

A pic or two of the  3 M165 stand is here

I've been thinking about the added M-165's below, and I think what will be ideal is to power them with an separate and inexpensive plate amp. That way the lower end can be dialed in and balanced phase wise, and output wise with flexibility on the crossover point.

This also keeps a large cap value from being inline with the M165NQ mid-bass driver. This can be more effectively done with a small cap value prior to the amplifier and at a lower cost.

And the high quality passive parts needed for the low (100Hz range) crossover point will be more costly than a good plate amp and not have the flexibility that a separate plate amp can provide.

Why not on the sides?

Side loaded woofers could be used.

Yeah, I totally understand. I have the same problem at work. I am a developer, but not web, otherwise I would help you out.

Just wondering (and I am aware that this is not your usual style..), but with its fairly low crossover, would a (still sealed) TMM design work at all for a fairly compact floorstander with pretty good power handling and 93dBs of sensitivity?
(I'm assuming ported designs either just wont work or get huge with these drivers...(?))

Also, weren't the prototype designs using the Neo 10 and the 3 with the more rounded wave guide flatter in the treble region?

Thanks

A TMM pushes the acoustic centers too far apart. I tried it with a MMTMM too.

I can build the studio monitor as a small floor standing model with two M-165/16's below the mid.

And both of those models have a really flat response.
