The Cherlen 6 dB is a high-end 2 way bassreflex floorstanding speaker with Air Motion Transformer and 6 dB filter. The kit is delivered with the outstanding Audaphon AMT 1i and the excellent Morel TSCM 634. Cherlen has been developed by Dennis Frank and Daniel Gattig.

The filter is a 1st order frequency crossover. If you prefer a separation with second or third order we recommend Cherlen with 12/18 dB crossover..

The crossover consists of a 1st order high-pass filter (6 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter. The Woofers is connected to an 1st order low-pass filter (6 dB per octave slope).

The frequency response of this speaker is very balanced. The decay spectrum is nearly perfect. At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are lower than 0.2% above 600 Hz and rises not over 0.6% at 95 dB at 1 m .

Our kit consists of

  • Audaphon AMT-1i
  • Morel TSCM 634
  • 2x Bass reflex tube HP70, 68x160 mm, black
  • Damping fleece MT Bondum 800 (30 x 50 x 2 cm)
  • 0,5x PE sealing tape, 5x2 mm, 7.5 m
  • Damping Sonofil 100 x 35 cm for 20 litres
  • Binding Post PK31, gold plated (one pair, red and black)
  • 3m Speaker cable 2x1.5 mm2, transparent
  • Pan screws 4x20 black, 8 pieces
  • Plan for DIY kit

  • Audaphon MKP CAP Superior 6.8 μF / 400 Vdc
  • Mundorf baked varnish air core coil BL140, 0.68 mH/0.23 Ohm
  • Metal-oxide resistor, 10W 2.7 Ohm (red-purple-gold)
  • Metal-oxide resistor, 10W 4.7 Ohm (yellow-violet-gold)

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit comes with a ClarityCap ESA capacitor of high quality. The inductance is a Mundorf copper foil coil 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 17,80 excl. VAT: € 14.96 / $ 16.01

universal PCBs

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 / $ 4.23
We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
