NX-Otica MTM flat packs are now in stock.
« on: 12 Aug 2019, 10:31 pm »
I know, it has taken a while, but the NX-Otica MTM flat packs are here in stock.

The complete kit with flat pack is $1,229.



These are perfect for sitting on the dual servo subs.

Here are a couple of my favorite build threads for this model.

Is it possible to have MTM and the servo sub in the same cabinet, as they have to work together anyway ?.

And what would be the total cost with all drivers MTM + servo + flat pack for something that will look like this?:


thanks

Danny,

For first time callers do we just let you know what speakers we want, ask if there is any upgrades? Have our credit card information ready?

Is there more to it? Any other questions you may have for us? Or pretty easy transaction.

Thank you.

I have actually played around with some  cabinet models of something  simlar by altering our Super 7  cabinet... shorter,  full inner wing,   , tight  radius  swooped outer wing.    I'm not sure how the   NQ's  would repond to the swooped outer wing ( and as the swoop gets tighter,  it looks more awkward.  You're  also increasing the baffle width by almost  50% to match   the width of the  lower  section.

Increasing the baffle width by that much with those  6.5"   drivers ended my  efforts on this one, didn't make sense to me

I should point out that ebag's build there is pretty complex compared to a standard flat pack.  I'm sure someone could build it for you but it will definitely be more expensive than the flat pack offered here (and which sounds great, BTW). 

So, if on a budget, go for the simple flat pack Danny put in the first post. 

If you have more $$, then a more complex build like ebags is possible.  And it's freaking beautiful!

If I buy the MTM version do I need to buy the OB version for the subs? I was just considering getting sub kit 2 sealed.

OB is the way to go for the bass.

Is it because the MTM is OB? Or just preference for having OB subs?

But you could improvise with a regular sub if you don't have the funds to go with the OB subs.

Ed's craftmanship is outstanding.

If I could build the kit without screwing it up, primer and paint would be the best I could do.

How low does the upper MTM go and where abouts does it need to be crossed over?

2 reasons.  First is because the OB top section really needs the OB sub section to sound coherent.  Second, because servo OB bass is just better than box bass, IME.

100hz, if memory serves.  For the MTM version pictured in the first post of this thread.  There's also a tower version of the NX-Otica that goes down to 70hz.

Thank you.

All is as easy as just given me a call.  And I'll answer all your questions.

Another thing worth considering is s that the full NX-Otica  takes   the lower  end of the NQ workload away which is a good thing IMHO.  It crosses the NQ's  to the  lower 4 M165's at  around 200hz.  They provvide more impact  in the  100-200hz range  than the  2 NQ's  do

If you  have the room,  a pair of the full NX-Otica's and  either dual or triple OB subs is the way to go

Thanks guys.  I have been tweaking room position, seating position and servo amp settings over the last couple of months.  I must say the MTMs over servos are sounding fantastic, really locked in.

Best,
Ed
