  • sensivity (2,83V/1m): 90 dB
  • size (HxWxD): 915 x 230 x 450 mm

BK108 is a backloaded horn. It is a design of Fostex, Japan.

To flatten the frequency response of the speaker Günter Damde (Saarbrücken, Germany, +49-681-499329) added a crossover.

The fullrange speaker Fostex FE108 E Sigma is used in the floorstander.

The crossover contains two wave traps in series to the speaker.

Our kit consists of

  • Fostex FE 108 EZ (Sigma), 4 inch, full range, 8 Ohm
  • Damping fleece MT Bondum 800 (30 x 50 x 2 cm)
  • Foam N25-30, 100 x 50 cm, black
  • Binding Post PK31, gold plated (one pair, red and black)
  • 1,5m Speaker cable 2x2.5 mm2, transparent
  • Pan screws 3.5x17 black, cross recess, 8 pieces
  • Plan for DIY kit

to be mounted on a small wooden board.

  • Audaphon MKP CAP Superior 4.7 μF / 400 Vdc
  • 1.0 mm air core coil, 0.22 mH/0.21 Ohm
  • Metal-oxide resistor, 10W 12 Ohm (brown-red-black)

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   - not available

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit comes with Mundorf MCAP supreme, high end resistor and Mundorf copper foil 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.

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 6,40 excl. VAT: € 5.38 / $ 5.75

universal PCB

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 5,90 excl. VAT: € 4.96 / $ 5.31
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
