          Man, these look sooooooooo perfect for my dad's HT setup.

          Can one of these be laid down for center channel duty?

            March is in like a lion. This definitely should be a PE kit. With the small cabinet in 1/2" mdf this would be huge.

              I couldn't agree more, Mark.

                Paul,

                i put that build in the 'to do' folder i have. got to finish the 1st version before i can do the mtm. i have an mtm with the M3N so i will be curious to hear the two side by side. the mtm is an Augerpro design from the HT forum.

                you guys keep putting out these cool bookshelf / desktop designs and i will never get my Marcatos done :D!

                        I was thinking of building a Overnight Sensations TM as a center channel, but I'm also interested in the MTM. Either one would need to be horizontal and flush mounted. Any thoughts? Thanks -- Doug

                          With this one crossing over at about 4kHz, I'd imagine the vertical window is rather small. So, when placed on it's side, that vertical becomes horizontal, so I don't think a very good idea for center channel. Maybe Paul can give a better idea of off-axis performance.

                          IMO, I'd try to stay away from the standard MTM as much as possible for center channel use. If you do have to go this route, crossover as low as possible, and keep the drivers as close together as possible. A 3-way with vertical "TM" and horizontal woofers works much better for center channel use, but the added cost is a huge factor there.

                          I have nearly build a center channel MTM that attempts to get the best of both worlds while keeping costs down. I use a Fostex FF85K wide-range 3" driver instead of a tweeter, so the crossover point is low at about 800Hz and off-axis performance is much better as a result. The 3" driver doesn't have the same high frequency performance (rolls off quickly off axis due to driver size), but the focus of this speaker was to get very good vocal reproduction anywhere in the room. My initial testing has shown me that it will may work out very well in this regard.

                          exactly a Fc 3K for both drivers, anybody can do it." -Xmax
