MiniSat Basic, Shelf speaker   as in Hobby Hifi 3/2014

Technical data
- impedance: 4 Ohm
- sensivity (2,83V/1m): 85 dB
- size (HxWxD): 282 x 174 x 200 mm
- frequency range (-8dB): 65 - 21000 Hz

MiniSat Basic is a small shelf speaker developed by Bernd Timmermanns. MiniSat Basic is available as 4 Ohm version or as 8 Ohm version. It contains a Visaton bass loudspeaker W130S (in 4 or 8 Ohm) and a Visaton dome tweeter SC10.

The construction is quite simple: only 8 small rectangular cut boards are needed.

The crossover consists of second-order filters.

The frequency response is flat on 15 degree angle (horizontal deviation). The decay spectrum is without error. The non-linear distortions are less than 1% above 200 Hz at 90 dB SPL (1 m).

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).

  • Mundorf, electrolytic capacitor, etched, 33 uF/100 Vdc
  • 0.7 mm air core coil, 0.22 mH/0.39 Ohm
  • 2x Metal-oxide resistor, 10W 12 Ohm (brown-red-black)


Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.   EUR 8,14 excl. VAT: € 6.84 / $ 7.80

universal PCB

 If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 140 x 102 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA140, order no.. I-2765, price per unit: EUR 3,70 excl. VAT: € 3.11 / $ 3.54
We recommend one or two boards per kit (two or four boards for a speaker pair)
