Danny,

Are the new Studio Monitors sold as fully assembled or are they in kit form?

They are sold as a kit, but they come with a pre-cut front baffle.

Danny,

Thank you.

I've got a pair of kit speakers (Overnight Sensations) sitting on my bench (gift for a friend's son) to assemble before I can play with another kit. I will keep these in mind for my next project.

Question: How much does the pair weigh in kit form - front baffle included?

I don't have a kit weight handy. Probably about 18 to 20 pounds.

A finished pair that shipping out weighed 37 pounds each with packing material and all.

I might have missed it but how much for the kit?  And as for speaker placement I presume you would want the monitors to be 3ft from the back wall even if you chose to use sealed servo subs?

Thanks.

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

For studio use these can be used over a console or nearly right up on the front wall.

For ideal playback these can be used well out into the room with an added servo sub for bottom end, and I think they will rival the best of the best cost no object monitors out there.

Send them to Traverse City, I have servos, and a great vacation venue for family and friends wanting out of the heat.

Danny,

Any chance they can visit the Northeast? PA in particular. My N3TL's and Encores need some company.- JAZ

No one has asked so how about a compare with the straight X-Otica. Guess is similar except the X crosses better with the servos. How low can you pass these without lowering the sensitivity further ?

They have a very similar sound but with lower sensitivity. And while they really shine well out into the room, they don't have to be placed way out into the room.

And you can cross them to the subs anywhere from about 50Hz or so. It will depend on your room.

What is the sensitivity of the X Otica ? How are they made available ?
