I think Danny mentioned in another thread he still does not have an ETA on the NX drivers, unfortunately.

Any chance we'll see a floorstanding version of this that will go lower than the monitor? Maybe an MTM version?

MTM would shoot the foot of the design, no? Perhaps TMM mo' betta.

We are only out of the 16 ohm version used in the MTM's.

Would these be a sizable upgrade to the n3s? Getting the itch to build something even though im loving them.

Yes a significant step up.  The N3s are among the top 20% of speakers in the world, but the NX-Studios are probably the best bookshelf in the world, bar none.  It does everything right and nothing wrong.  It's an incredible achievement, Danny should be very proud.

They aren't on the site, you have to order them directly from Danny by email or phone.

The new website is still under construction, but will have an updated  list of available speakers, including the NX-Studios, Otica MTM, and others.

I think there was talk about that and a 3-way design in the Studio Monitor development thread, but ultimately ended up not being worth the effort. I think it was intended to use a pair of the same woofers found in the X-LS/X-Static?

But I imagine you could probably design build a set that incorporates a 12" side-firing, sealed, servo sub, so long as it has enough internal volume & bracing to support it, plus you'd get solid response down into the 20s.

If you wanted a more "traditional "box" look it might be possible to have one with the mid woofer on the right/left of the OB tweeter, and the sealed sub below it. Or the standard T-M configuration with the sealed sub on the right/left, for a more horizontal orientation. Tho I imagine both of those ideas will affect tone response for the mid woofer & Sub.

But in the end, the easiest/best solution ended up just being the Studios on top of a pair of H-frame Subs.

I own a pair of Rythmik F8 sealed subwoofers.  These are 20” H x 11” w x 15” D.  I use them and a pair of Isoacoustics ISOL8R-200s as stands for a pair of monitor speakers.  Rythmik sells the subs in a contractor version as well if you wanted to build you own cabinets.

I don’t know if Danny plans to carry the 8” sealed woofers.

I've definitely considered one of those as well.
Danny mentioned considering another order of the 8" subs if there was enough interest for them, but most followup responses mentioned the dual 12" drivers just sounded better than tripple 8" subs, not to mention cheaper.
Imo, even a single 8" for each channel would be nice way to round out the low-end.

The 8s can comfortably run to 250hz.  This makes stereo implementation easier and can work with many more (smaller) speakers.

The double 8s also mimic Danny's earlier suggestion of a powered 2 x M165 bass module used below the Studio Monitor.
