Build your own high-end near-field monitors with the highly regarded Overnight Sensations MTM speaker kit designed by Paul Carmody. This kit includes nearly everything to build a MTM speaker, including: a knock-down cabinets, drivers, ports, and crossover components.
The sound quality of the MTM version of the Overnight Sensations is the same as the original TM. The sound is big, and they sort of pick up where the Tm leaves off. Where the TM version does its best work in a small room, the MTM version can easily rock the walls in such a room… and might be better suited to a medium-sized room. They work as desktop speakers and will have a nice, immersive soundstage. Please be careful with your hearing–and be respectful of those whose desk is near yours. These things pack a bit of a party.
The idea here is to take the heart of the Overnight Sensations (big sound, small box, cheap price), but increase power handling and efficiency by adding a second woofer. The results should be quite satisfying and surprising to those who choose to build it.
Wiring a second woofer in parallel gives us a few advantages: most importantly, the speaker is 6 dB louder (twice as loud), which also means the speaker will go 6 dB louder than its TM counterpart.
