BigBlock, Floorstanding   as in Hobby HiFi 6/2012

Technical data
- impedance: 4 Ohm
- sensivity (2,83V/1m): 81 dB
- size (HxWxD): 1000 x 250 x 310 mm
- frequency range (-8dB): 21 - 30000 Hz
- crossover frequency(s): 1950 Hz
- speaker type: passive radiator

Bernd Timmermanns of journal Hobby HiFi presents Big Block. The kit consists of an Audaphon AMT 1i air motion transformer, certified by Hobby HiFi as a unit at reference level and a woofer Wavecor SW223BD01.

A Wavecor PR223BD01 passive radiator can be seen below the woofer; with his help the floorstander reaches 23 Hz (-3 dB).
 

The crossover consists of second-order filters.

The frequency response of the speaker-system is perfectly flat. The decay spectrum is without any fault. The most noteworthy fact is that the non-linear distortions remain very small.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker - not available

universal PCB

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 240 x 165 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA240, order no.. I-2767, price per unit: EUR 7,60 excl. VAT: € 6.39 / $ 7.41
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)

Kit with high-end crossover

  

  • ClarityCap MR capacitor 6.8 uF / 630 Vdc
  • ClarityCap SA capacitor 4.7 uF / 630 Vdc
  • ClarityCap SA capacitor 6.8 uF / 630 Vdc
  • Mundorf baked varnish air core coil BL71, 0.27 mH/0.45 Ohm
  • Mundorf copper foil coil CFC14-0.68mH/0.20Ohm
  • Mundorf copper foil coil CFC12-1.5mH/0.21Ohm
  • Metal-oxide resistor, 5W 4.7 Ohm (yellow-violet-gold)

Impedance correction

 If you want to use a valve amplifier with this speaker an impedance correction should be employed. In this case the component quality is less important; therefore, we offer only one kit (upon request higher quality components are available).

  • Audaphon MKT CAP 33 uF / 160 Vdc
  • Audaphon air core coil L7, 0.68 mH/0.70 Ohm
  • Metal-oxide resistor, 10W 15 Ohm (brown-green-black)
  • Metal-oxide resistor, 10W 18 Ohm (brown-grey-black)


Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.   EUR 16,40 excl. VAT: € 13.78 / $ 15.99
