Accustand is a two way floorstanding speaker with Accuton woofers (114 mm voice coil) . The loudspeaker shows a lack of distortion that we have not experienced before!
Accustand is a loudspeaker with drivers of Audaphon and Accuton. Passive radiators provide deep bass.
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Audaphon Neo APR 1.0 ribbon-tweeter
- two Accuton C168-6-890 woofers
The loudspeaker has been developed by Dennis Frank and Daniel Gattig.
The crossover consists of:
- a first order high-pass filter (6 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a first order low-pass filter (6 dB per octave slope) for the woofer.
The frequency response of this speaker is perfectly linear.
The decay spectrum is perfect.
At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,2% above 750 Hz and doesn't exceed 0.2% at 95 dB at 1 m between 300 and 17500 Hz.
"Well, if you can quantify something like sound quality, the Accustand of course is not TWICE as good as the compact Accutop - remember: both speakers are working with the identical drivers. But the bigger speaker consistently continues the path of the compact one and adds a bit more at a few points: For certain, the lower limit frequency and above all the bass dynamics are noticeably better here - so good and powerful that you have to take into account the size of your own listening room a bit when planning to build one: A box like this literally kills you with bass dynamics in a room that is too small. From 40 square meters to start with, possibly even a little more - there are plenty of dynamic reserves. And then the Accustand takes a deep breath and fascinates with a highly dynamic and powerful style of play on the one hand, and on the other hand with its grandiose ability to implement precisely even very subtle material."
"With the Accustand, the Lautsprechershop is also setting new sound standards in this size class - not cheap, but worth every penny."

The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils or Mundorf copper foil coil on important parts of the crossover 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 capacitor for the Audaphon Neo APR 1.0 is of type Mundorf Mcap Supreme EVO Silver Gold Oil 4,7 μF with 800V.

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 17,80 excl. VAT: € 14.96 / $ 15.86
If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a universal PCB instead on wood
PCB 150x115 mm, tin plated, price per unit: EUR 4,70 excl. VAT: € 3.95 / $ 4.19
We recommend two boards per kit (4 boards per speaker pair)
