|MLC "XSEED" For all the music lovers.
X-structured interior of this box reduces noise and standing waves which make sound slurred without using
any damping material for accurate high fidelity reproduction. Extremely wide dynamic range, quick response
and powerful bass range reproduced from just a single unit, this is something that has never been
experienced before. Enclosure material is pure fine natural wood, finished with Urushi (Japanese), which
harmonizes glorious tones. The driver is the world best full range Feastrex unit, which is available with Field
Coil magnet type or Alnico magnet for your choice.

|More about MLC X-SEED Enclosure
- A craft art from Matsumoto City, mecca of musical instrument designing and manufacturing.
Uses NO sound-absorption material
As long as an enclosure is legitimately structured, there is no neccessity to use sound absorbing
materials as in a musical instrument which uses no such materials. Instead, enclosure should not be a
scamped work, because sound varies depending on the material used.
We never use MDF or particle board that worsens sound, but good and expensive sounding natural
wood partly with birch plywood where rigidity is required.
Spikes are made of cocobolo as used in musical instrument such as the clarinet, and urushi finished.
Inner paiting influences sonic quality, too, so our choices are urushi and natural oil. Enclosure and
spikes are painted by a professional craftman who wan a prize at a national exhibition.
Original X-structure has no air chamber, so X-SEED sounds expansively. Specially designed for
FEASTREX driver that uses a light weight cone as a diaphragm.
If small air chamber exists, sound gets worse due to back pressure. X-SEED enclosure makes sound
stream smooth by means of fins arrayed inside, and reproduces unclouded clear mid/high and
X-SEED requires delicate tuning, but once it is perfectly set it perfoms satisfactory without regard
to genre of music.
