CT 295 is a three way compact speaker.

CT 295 is a closed-cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Visaton .

The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Visaton SC 5, 8 Ohm tweeter
- a Visaton FRS 8, 4 Ohm fullrange driver
- a Visaton WS 17 E, 4 Ohm woofer

The loudspeaker has been developed by Thomas Schmidt.

The crossover consists of:
- a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a band pass consisting of a 2nd order high pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) and a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the ullrange loudspeaker.
- 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 is nearly perfect.

At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0.5% above 200 Hz and doesn't exceed 1% at 95 dB at 1 m between 200 and 15000 Hz.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   EUR 129,00 excl. VAT: € 108.40 / $ 125.75

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 capacitor for the tweeter is of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap ESA 250 V. The other ones (except one with 47 uF) are Audaphon polypropylen capacitors with 400V
