CerAL 8/4.2 is a three way floorstanding speaker.

CerAL 8/4.2 is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Tang Band and Omnes Audio.

The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Tang Band 25-1719 tweeter
- two Tang Band W4-657 mids drivers
- a Omnes Audio W8 Alu, silver woofer

The loudspeaker has been developed by Nik Baur.

The crossover consists of:
- a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 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 2rd 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 nearly linear.

The decay spectrum is nearly perfect.

At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,6% above 300 Hz and doesn't exceed 0,7% at 95 dB at 1 m between 300 and 15000 Hz.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   - not available

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with 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 Tang Band 25-1719 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap.

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 12,60 excl. VAT: € 10.59 / $ 11.33

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 11,80 excl. VAT: € 9.92 / $ 10.61
We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
