Product Details

AviaTrix Sealed MTM Components Only Speaker Kit Pair

This AviaTrix Sealed MTM components kit contains everything required to construct the sealed version (L/C/R) of the MTM AviaTrix speaker project. The sealed version of the AviaTrix is recommended for a 15 liter enclosure for center channel or as small mains—the f3 models below 60 Hz, and will integrate well with a subwoofer. The AviaTrix Sealed MTM has adequate bass extension and can be used as a stand alone speaker system for 2-channel music. At the heart of the components kit are two Dayton Audio RS28F-4 1-1/8" silk dome tweeters and four Dayton Audio ND140-8 5-1/4" aluminum cone midbass drivers. Check the speaker project that inspired the Aviatrix Kit. See below for a complete listing of components included in this kit.

AviaTrix Sealed MTM Components Only Speaker Kit Pair
AviaTrix Sealed MTM Components Only Speaker Kit Pair is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A project that covers all the basesDIY research, woodworking, electronics, finishing and finally great sounding speakers. All fun stuff. I had a lot of fun with this first DIY speaker project. It took about 3 weekends to do the project (still need to rub out the piano black finish). Sound great. Clean highs and plenty of low end for me. Had my doubts looking at what to me were smallish woofers, but WoW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was not dissapointed!!! First DIY project success!!!So I decided to build these as a first speaker project mainly because they were priced reasonably while not being the cheapest kits available. My goal was value for money.Being my first speaker project and the fact that I designed the boxes so that both the front and rear baffles could be removed for finishing at a later date (MLTL Ver) it took me around 10 hours each to complete the woodwork and another 3 hours each or so to organise crossovers etc.From the moment I first plugged them in I have fallen in love with them and have since ordered another kit including an extra tweeter so that I can complete the surrounds and center channel. I found the low end extension to be quite adequate especially considering I live directly above my neighbours. These can still easily vibrate parts of the living room. Though I am also building a TC Sounds sub.Curt and Wayne have done a great job designing these and I think he has hit the target for a great sounding, affordable and realistic first DIY design that has now got me listening to every piece of music I own over and over.They are not too large and so far have the approval of everyone who has heard them.On a side note I had an inductor in the kit arrive damaged. Contacted PE and they sent a new one as soon as it was in stock no questions asked.Thanks Curt, Wayne and PE.

Do you have a single package for center channel?

I would like to build 3 of these. It is almost cheaper to buy 2 kits than to buy 1 kit and then the ala carte parts of the center channel.
Asked by: MikeGCNY
the large cabinet/horn trix ,sold in pairs. is for low end bass, center channel needs no low bass 80 to 150 hz is low aplenty ! vocal and center stage treble are. so is horizontal spread . a sealed dual chamber ,dual tweeter/ small dual woofer is the going thing , now my poverty audio tip ; car stereo speakers have strange effects parameters like 100 hz peak Humm that's mid bass like snare drums, ,[listen to the speakers at the local car stereo shop].. each driver is 4 ohm also.. and home amps need 8 ohm xover center channel only one YOU COULD EVEN.BUY A PAIR AND WIRE THEM IN SERIES TO 8 OHM's.. BUILD A 3/4 IN MDF SHELVING BOARD BOX, MOST CHAIN HOME HARWARE STORES WILL EVEN CUT IT FOR FREE OR $.25 A CUT BOX SIZE NOT TOO CRITICAL REMEMBER LOW BASS IS NOT NEEDED TIGHTNESS OF CONE MOVEMENT IS.. FINISH TO MATCH THE TRIX AND SHOW THE WORLD YOUR ART! [I THINK THE T-3,5 1/4 AUTO KIT AND OTHER CLEARANCE DRIVERS WOULD MORE THAN KEEP UP WITH THE TRIX] AND YOU HAVE TWO 4 OHM XOVERS LEFT FOR THE FRONT OF YOUR CAR! when you want to upgrade ALWAYS PLAN AHEAD!

Anything I need to buy that isn't included in the Aviatrix kit?

Is there anything, other than wood/glue, that I might need that isn't included in this kit? I.e. speaker wire? Soldering iron/Solder? What kind of wire is needed on the crossover? Etc..
Asked by: Natedawg
I would look at some of the cabinets available at PE - they are very nice and you are building a pretty nice, high end kit... Yes, you will need wire, solder, soldering iron. Get a good one so your welds are solid. As for wire - pure oxygenated copper strand is fine. 18 gauge. I like silver solder - it's not that much more expensive and is used more in audiophile applications. Only other option would be leitz wire on the tweeter circuit - but very expensive and you have to have quite the ear to hear the difference.

This kit + Knock-Down Birch 0.60 ft³ Monitor Cabinet (Part # 300-7050) for "sideways" install?

Note: I'm a total beginner.I read that the "AviaTrix is recommended for a 15 liter enclosure", and the knockdown cabinets mentioned above seem about right at ~ 17L. If I do a "sideways" install, it looks like there would be just enough room for the drivers, perhaps with the tweeter off center a bit (cabinets are 17" high external, 16" high internal).Any reason why this wouldn't work, or any advice you might offer a total beginner?Should I use the included braces to divide the airspace or just toss them out?Would I really need all 5lbs of polyfill?Thanks in advance!
Asked by: JasonHall
MTM speakers are always built to be positioned horizontally. Also, you want to keep all the drivers symetrically aligned. The crossover is designed specifically for this layout. Yes - the knockdown cabinets will work, however, the components you are buying would normally cost about $1000+ in a store bought system. I think you should should get a better cabinet to match the quality of the drivers. Look at the HI FI SPEAKER CABINETS
