Compact loudspeaker Atlas is an high-end 2 way speaker with high efficiency. The kit is delivered with tweeter Wavecor TW030WA11. This tweeter is perfect for applications with deep crossover frequency. Two Wavecor woofers WF182CU13 with phase-plug and very linear frequency response are within the closed cabinet.
Atlas impresses with high volume stability and brilliant sound reproduction. We recommend this loudspeaker.
The crossover consists of a 3rd order high-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter. A blocking circuit smoothing the frequeny response from 3 kHz to 10 kHz. The Woofers are connected to a 2 nd order (12 dB per octave slope). A series-resonant-circuit is used to smoothen the frequency response at 800 Hz.
The frequency response of this speaker a very linear. The decay spectrum is nearly perfect. At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are not higher than 0.1% between 500 Hz and 10 000 Hz and doesn't exceed 0.5% at 95 dB at 1 m. These are the advantages that are hard to exceed.

The high-end kit is delivered with a baked varnish air coils and for all critical parts of the crossover with Mundorf copper foil coils 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. All capacitors are of type MKP (polypropylen) and in series to the tweeter Clarity-Cap three capacitors of highest quality are used: MR 630V

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).
If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a universal PCB instead on wood
