NX Studio Monitor Flat Packs

Ok,  we finally  cut the initial  run of these  ( 8 pairs remaining as I type this).   We'll cut more if  there is interest.  These came out really nice.. Rabbets for all outer panel joints,  dados for  internal bracing/divider  and a full rabbet around the top for the included grill frame.  Driver mounting screw pilot holes pre-drilled,   .5"   vertical  roundover on  front baffle edges and a nice  radius on rear  side of woofer cutout.A .125"  pilot hole  is pre-drilled in the grill frame for easy istallation of a small cabinet knob  if desired.


Baffles with waveguides and backside operations take considerable  time to cut, they are cut from   solid 1.5" MDF , same material as our  sub kits use.  Not  your typical box store  MDF
Remaining outer panels are  .75"  Medex  and  internal bracing/dividers and grill frame are .5" Medex. 















Boxes   were ordered this am so no final shipping  weight yet.
Price    is  $369/pair +  shjipping.

These will be sold in order   I receive emails  captainhemo@shaw.ca.     
NOTE,  you  need to  email me at the above address to confirm a pair

Just shot you an email!
This will probably be a slow build for me over the next few months while I save up to aquire the necessary tools and kit, but i definitely want to get these done up extra nice.  :thumb:
(I should be able to convert the spare bedroom into an office by the end of next month, so they will be going in there)

Yeah,  it's  a really  nice kit, should make it  really  easy for guys to get these built.  Niticed I missed one  little  thing...I should have added  a little   3/16"  hole in  flat/stubby divider for tweeter  wire pass through... you guys  will  need to pop  one in  when youi  build them  out.  I'll add that  to next  run.
Down to 4 pairs left  already !

And,  Peter is going to do another  assembly  video for us so that will be really helpful  for guys  wanting/needing   some  guidence .

I solved my problem by planing on replacing the N2Xs in my bedroom with the studio Monitors and moving N2Xs into wife kitchen system. Problem solved and points with the wife.  :icon_lol:

Let’s see, I have the N1Xs, N3s, A/V-1RSs, LGK 1.0s, Skinny 6s & Flat 5 (not finished yet), Wedgies, NX-Otica MTMs/dual H-frames, X-Omnis, a sandbox sub, and a Studio Monitor in progress. I’ve had the X-LS & X-CS Encores but I gave them to my step-son when I built the Wedgies. I wonder if I need some more  :scratch:

Well, there is the pair of X-MTM Encores I gave my neice, and another pair I gave my nephew, and the LCR triplet of X-CS Encores I gave my step-daughter, and the X-LS Encores that Ron has. The rest I’ve built for other people so they don’t really count.....  :dunno:
