I' m getting very close...
« on: August 06, 2023, 09:01:16 PM »
to my new mains.  I'm excited!

I'm in talks with my good friend, cohort and confidant Danny Richie on helping to develop his new NX-Series open baffle loudspeaker.

It is essentially a self-contained NX-Otica, but with 3 - 8" servo controlled subwoofers and an MTM using his incredible M165NQ16 bass/mids combined with the GR Neo3 tweeters.

About 2 months out 😕, but that's how it goes!

Hope you have or he has the servo amps.  Last time I checked with Brian the A370XLR3's are gone.  They had A370XLR2's and some A370PEQ's available.

They have not had the HX series for awhile except their builds.

Hopefully some of them survived the water damage in the room.  New floor and molding is going in now.

That's exciting. New speakers is a big thing. I don't know why some people cycle really cheap ones a lot instead of going for good.

About 48", which is just fine with me!

Evidently there are a batch of amps coming in in a few days.  Nick will benefit from these ( 👍🏼 ) and I'm getting a tad excited.  I also have a pair of A370PEQ here that I could use by not choosing the lowest extension filter.  I plan on using these in swarm subs in the rear of the room.

Same idea here once my room is rebuilt.

At least it now has a floor that is almost finished! :)

Iím always interested in new speakers for testing and evaluation our gear and recently feel in love with OBs. Running OBs now.  Is there a price point on these yet ? Drawings?

No pricing yet.  I think there is a tentative drawing on AC.  I'll see if I can find it and add a link...

The bass/mids and tweeter section of the NX series is really good.  Transparent and dynamic.

Thanks, Dave. Good stuff and a very beautiful build by ebag4 of a variation in the red finish.
