Mivoc Petite, Floorstanding   as in K+T 3/2010

Technical data
- impedance: 4 Ohm
- sensivity (2,83V/1m): 86 dB
- size (HxWxD): 800 x 136 x 225 mm
- frequency range (-8dB): 30 - 25000 Hz
- crossover frequency(s): Hz
- speaker type: bass reflex

Mivoc Petite is a 3 way bass reflex floorstander by Michael Kapp, who heads Speaker Trade and owns the Mivoc brand.

The speaker comprises a midrange/tweeter unit MHE 380 supported by two XAW 110 HC for bass..

The crossover separates with 12 dB/oct. For frequency response correction an absorption circuit is used for the woofer and one for the tweeter.

An excerpt from the Klang+Ton review

"We placed the Petites relatively close to the listening position (2 metres away from the couch), pointed inwards and waited for the first notes with a faint smile - and at first glance what's delivered is quite charming and dignified. The listening impression is unusually direct and instantaneous, similar to a good horn - the usual somewhat palliating veil of reflections has lifted, what remains is the signal that's fed in. In other words: garbage in - garbage out, and then the Petite might even fly off the handle, without even an attempt to gloss it over. With the right material, however, it fits like a glove and the Petite performs almost like a monitor, tight and uncompromising, with an impressive bass, perfect three-dimensionality and balance, a credit that would even please some larger speakers. And the best thing: it also works very well in smaller rooms and doesn't cost the earth!"


Our kit consists of

  
  • Mivoc mid/high frequency unit MHE380, aluminium
  • 2 pcs Mivoc XAW 110 HC II woofer new: now with black cone!
  • 2 pcs Polyester damping material, 125 g for 20L volume
  • Terminal Mivoc AT 105 S
  • 5m Speaker cable 2x1.5 mm2, transparent
  • Pan screws 3.5x17 black, 8 pieces
  • the building instruction for the kit

crossover components (right),
to be mounted on a small wooden board.

  • Mundorf, electrolytic capacitor, etched, 33 uF/100 Vdc
  • Mundorf, electrolytic capacitor, etched, 220 uF/63 Vdc
  • Mundorf, electrolytic capacitor, unetched, 100uF / 50 Vdc
  • Jantzen Cross Cap MKP capacitor 8.2 uF / 400V
  • Jantzen Cross Cap MKP capacitor 10 uF / 400V
  • Audaphon air core coil L7, 0.10 mH/0.27 Ohm
  • Audaphon air core coil L7, 0.18 mH/0.36 Ohm
  • 1.0 mm Air core coil, 1.0 mH/0.49 Ohm
  • 0.6 mm core coil 2.2 mH/1.09 Ohm
  • Mundorf air core coil BL71, 6.8 mH/2.68 Ohm
  • Mundorf H core coil H100, 4.7 mH/0.34 0hm
  • 2 pcs MOX4 resistor 1.0 Ohm/4 Watt (brown-black-gold)

  • MOX10 resistor 1.5 Ohm/10Watt (brown-green-gold)

*) Please note: the R4 is a 1.8 Ohm (instead of a 1.5 Ohm) resistor, since our coil L6 has a lower internal resistance compared to the one recommended by Klang+Ton.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker - not available
