Audimax Reference Standard is a three way floorstanding speaker.
Audimax Reference Standard is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Audaphon, Hobby HiFi (Made by SEAS) and Visaton.
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Audaphon APR 1.0 ribbon-tweeter
- two Hobby-HiFi (Made by SEAS) 18MW12T mids drivers
- two Visaton TIW 250 XS 8 Ohm woofers
The loudspeaker has been developed by Bernd Timmermanns.
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 a 2nd 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 perfectly linear.
The decay spectrum as shown in the waterfall diagram is exemplary, free of any disturbing resonance.
At medium volume, i.e. 90 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,2% above 100 Hz.

The high-end kit is delivered with copper foil coils and baked varnish air core coils 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 capacitors for the Audaphon APR 1.0 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Mundorf Mcap Supreme EVO Silver Gold Oil 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 50,60 excl. VAT: € 42.52 / $ 45.07
If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 159 x 127 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA160, order no.. str-RA160, price per unit: EUR 4,20 excl. VAT: € 3.53 / $ 3.74
Universal PCB RA240, order no.. str-RA240, price per unit: EUR 8,60 excl. VAT: € 7.23 / $ 7.66
We recommend one board (each) per kit (two boards (each) for a speaker pair)
