The x-omni make look a little funky but it is a pretty amazing speaker. Excellent as mains or surrounds, their projection capabilities will have you wondering how that sound is possible from those speakers.
As good as the speakers are, you can really improve their performance by upgrading the crossover networks. Greater detail, resolution, transparency, and more. The sound image simply floats above the speakers in all it's glory. These speakers were developed with Ninja Master level networks. Upgrade to Ninja Elite or Ninja Master to hear the speakers how they are supposed to sound.
- Capacitors are manufactured by Sonicap and are matched
- Mills resistors
- Cardas quad eutectic solder included

If you choose "I'm OK with soldering everything" then you should also choose the DIY version.
If you choose either the copper connector or wire nut option, you should also choose the Ninja Built version. With these options selected, once you place your order, we will email you instructions on how to remove and ship your networks to us.
Once received, we will replace all the components as part of this upgrade and return your networks ready to be installed without worrying about soldering. Choose 'copper connectors' for a cleaner, more professional look or choose 'wire nuts' for an easier to install but not as professional looking job.
Overall you will notice a higher level of detail, texture, focus, superior sound stage, musicality, and transparency.
What does that mean?Components
We use as few components in our networks as possible. This allows the cleanest signal to be passed to your speakers. Rest assured this does not change the frequency response of the speaker or the overall character.
Texture – all of the ‘inner’ details of each instrument comes across clearly. The ‘live’ feel comes across so well because the subtleties that are normally lost are finally present. The more revealing the overall presentation is, the more convincing it is.
Focus – We tightly match our components. While most components are 5 or even 10% tolerance, we use only 5% or less tolerance components and then we hand match them so that each pair of networks is 500 to 1000% better than the stock crossover.
Sound stage – moves the sound stage from being within the confines of the speaker and moves it out, up, and behind the speaker. This helps recreate the sense of space and volume of the original performance.
Transparency – The ability for the speakers to remove themselves from the performance. Our networks enhance this ability due to their magnetically correct layout, point to point build and superior quality components.
Musicality – The best part and why we are all here. Everything your speakers used to do they will do better with Ninja networks and upgrades.
Ninja Elite networks utilize the very best components available. If you want more in-depth information on these components, visit our components page.

We don't stop with crossover network upgrades. A speaker's final sound quality is very much a sum of its parts. The crossover network design, the crossover network parts quality, the cabinet, internal wiring, drive units and binding posts. All of these items contribute to the end product - of which the goal is to simulate a live event with perfect accuracy. Click the options info tab above for more information!
