Visaton VOX 253 MTI with DIY high-end crossover

By popular request of our customers we also offer a version with high-end crossover. The crossover, to be built on two universal PCB's, consists of:
- 2 x universal PCB's 205x140 mm for wiring up components

for MHT 12 magnetostat:
- Mundorf MKP Supreme 3.3 uF / 800 V
- baked varnish air core coil 0.47 mH / 0.41 Ohm
- Mundorf MKP capacitor 6.8 uF / 400 V
- MOX10 1.5 Ohm/10Watt (brown-green-gold)
- MOX10 8.2 Ohm/10Watt (grey-red-gold)

for TI 100 midrange drivers:
- MKP capacitor 100uF / 400V, improving transparency.
- 2 x MOX10 4.7 Ohm (yellow-purple-gold) in parallel, instead of single 2.2 Ohm, since
  the 2.2 Ohm would get extremely hot already at 10 Watt power draw.
- Mundorf H-core coil 3.3 mH (a 2 mm air core coil would be even better )
- MKP capacitor 68uF / 400V, improving transparency.
- baked varnish air core coil 0.82 mH / 0.54 Ohm
- Mundorf MKP capacitor 0.47 uF / 630 V instead of 2 x ELCO special,
  resulting in a dramatic sound improvement.
- Mundorf MKP capacitor 6.8 uF / 400 V
- baked varnish air core coil 0.33 mH / 0.26 Ohm
- 0.5 mm ferrite core coil 10 mH / 3.48 Ohm (for resonance suppression)
- Mundorf, 150 uF/63 V, ELCO etched (for resonance suppression)

for the bass driver, where quality is less critical:
- Mundorf H-core coil with 4.7 mH
- ELCO, non-etched 100uF/ 35Volt
- ELCO, non-etched 33uF / 50Volt
- ELCO, non-etched 47uF / 50Volt
- MOX10 resistor, 6.8 Ohm (blue-grey-gold)
- 0.6 mm ferrite core coil 22 mH / 4.26 Ohm
- Mundorf, 330 uF/63 V, ELCO etched
- MOX10 4.7 Ohm (yellow-purple-gold)
  Please note: 4.7 Ohm instead of 3.3 Ohm should be used, since the coil has less resistance.

Price of high-end crossover kit: EUR 206,00 excl. VAT: € 173.11 / $ 197.34

Upon request we also supply the standard kit with high-end crossover. Price for one loudspeaker: EUR 969,00 excl. VAT: € 814.29 / $ 928.29
