Simon MK2             Lab Results   Building Plan

The goal was to design a small monitor as part of a practical training. For high frequencies in the first version we used the Audaphon TWS 25/6. TWS 25/6 has been replaced by Seas TWS 27-6 in the recent MK2 version. For bass the affordable Tangband W4-655 SA is used.

One of our trainees - with the help of Dennis Frank - designed in February 2005 a bass reflex cabinet with a rear port. If requested the rear port could also replaced by two front slots of half the cross-section. The speaker may then be placed with the back to the wall.
Tangband W4-655

According to listening tests the Simon is an excellent performer.

The Simon shows the following characteristics:
- flat frequency response
- considering the size quite a low bass
- good spacing and locating
- neutral reproduction
- slim design
- high quality components with cfc coil and Mundorf Supreme CAPS
