Visaton Oldschool is a three way compact speaker.

Visaton Oldschool is a closed-cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Visaton .

The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Visaton SC 10 N, 8 Ohm tweeter
- a Visaton W 100 S, 8 Ohm mids driver
- a Visaton W 200 S, 8 Ohm woofer

The loudspeaker has been developed by Frank Zeppelin.

The crossover consists of:
- a 3rd order high-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a band pass consisting of a 2nd order high pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) and a2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the mids-woofer.
- a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the woofer.

The frequency response of this speaker is mostly 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 300 Hz and doesn't exceed 1% at 95 dB at 1 m between 300 and 15000 Hz.

Kit with high-end crossover

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 Visaton SC 10 N, 8 Ohm are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap ESA 250 V.

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).


Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.     EUR 10,66 excl. VAT: € 8.96 / $ 10.12

universal PCB

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a universal PCB instead on wood
PCB 220x155 mm, order no. I-8805002, price per unit:   EUR 11,70 excl. VAT: € 9.83 / $ 11.11
We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
