This is the MTM version of the Mandolin also designed by Jeff Bagby. It is a 4 Ohm speaker system, so it is important to have a high current amplifier. The kit features drivers from SB Acoustics. The pdf link below contains information on the standardMandolin, not the MTM. They both have similar design objectives, but the MTM has about 3db more output.
Please note – this is sold as a single unit as it can be used as a center speaker or you may buy 3 for a LCR, front system. The full kit has all the parts included to build one kits, except for the cabinet. Plans are included.
The un-coated version of the woofer is standard. You may opt for the coated version in the comments field when you order.
