Chess Satellit is a two way compact loudspeaker.
Chess Satellit is a closed-cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Visaton .
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Visaton G25FFL tweeter with waveguide WG148R
- a Visaton W 250 S, 4 Ohm woofer
The loudspeaker has been developed by Bernd Timmermanns.
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 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for thewoofer.
The frequency response is linear. The decay spectrum as shown in the waterfall diagram is free of disturbing resonances. At a volume of 90 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are lower than 1% above 100 Hz.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 227,00 excl. VAT: € 190.76 / $ 209.83
The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core 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. The capacitors for the tweeter are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap ESA 250V.
Kit with high-end-crossover without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 263,00 excl. VAT: € 221.01 / $ 243.11
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).
If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 159 x 127 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA160, order no.. I-2766, price per unit: EUR 5,10 excl. VAT: € 4.29 / $ 4.71
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
