CT 296 is a two way compact speaker.

CT 296 is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Monacor .

The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Monacor HT-22/8 tweeter
- a Monacor SP-13/4 woofer

The loudspeaker has been developed by Markus Hasse.

The crossover consists of:
- a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the woofer.

The frequency response of this speaker is nearly linear.

The decay spectrum (waterfall spectrum) shows a decelerated swing-out behaviour in the mid-range.

At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0.5% above 500 Hz and doesn't exceed 1.5% at 95 dB at 1 m between 500 and 15000 Hz.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   EUR 80,00 excl. VAT: € 67.23 / $ 77.98

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils on important parts of the crossover for minimizing microphonic effects. - The current flow through the coil creates a magnetic field which sets the reel of wire in motion. This motion induces a voltage in the coil which adds itself to the signal. The stiffer the reel of wire is, the less the signal will be altered. The capacitors are of type polypropylen (MKP) Audaphon 400V or Mundoef electrolytic capacitors..

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).


Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.     EUR 7,89 excl. VAT: € 6.63 / $ 7.69

universal PCB

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a universal PCB instead on wood
PCB 150x115 mm, tin plated, price per unit:   EUR 4,70 excl. VAT: € 3.95 / $ 4.58
We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
