Das Viech (in English: The Beast) is a back loaded exponential horn by Berndt Burghard (also called Cyburgs on the Web) equipped with a Beyma 8ag/n full range driver.

To achieve a flatter frequency response a wave trap is added.

Our kit contains:

the Beyma 8ag/n full range driver
- half a Pack Polyester Dämmstoff
- a quater of a pack of Soft polyurethane foam
- a circular spring loaded terminal
- 1.5 metre cable 2x1,5 mm2
- 8 x screws Pan 8
- building instruction by Klang+Ton
The crossover components, to be mounted on wood:
- 8.2 uF MKP capacitor/400V
- 0.33 mH air core coil with 0.7 mm diameter
- 2.2 Ohm MOX10 resistor (red-red-gold)

Excerpt of the K+T 6/2005 review:
..."After a few CD tracks we removed the wave trap as a try, achieving a sound with more presence that seemed to be better. "Wait a minute, I'll grab a valve amp!" said the LP guy and minutes later carted a formidable contender into the listening room. Due to its high efficiency Das Viech made contact without any problem and showed a somewhat more balanced sound compared with the transistor."....
..."This configuration, however, didn't prove to be universal, some tracks just wouldn't click. Here the wave trap was one step ahead again. The colleagues that entered the listening room now and then, were quite impressed by The Beast's qualities, especially when the price was mentioned."
