Naos is a two way floorstanding speaker.
Naos is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Alcone and Wavecor.
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Alcone AC15 tweeter
- two Wavecor WF182CU13 midrange / bass driver
The loudspeaker has been developed by Thomas Schmidt, Daniel Gattig and Dennis Frank.
The crossover consists of:
- a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a 3rd order low-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the woofer.
The frequency response of this speaker is linear. The decay spectrum is perfect. At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0.2% above 400 Hz and doesn't exceed 0.5% at 95 dB at 1 m between 500 and 8000 Hz. That is quite splendid.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 560,00 excl. VAT: € 470.59 / $ 531.76
The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core 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. The capacitors for the driver are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap CSA and Audaphon MKP.

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

We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
