Cinco   Floorstanding as in K+T 3/2017

Technical data
  • impedance: 8 Ohm
  • sensivity (2,83V/1m): 88 dB
  • size (HxWxD): 1098 x 250 x 390 mm
  • frequency range (-8dB): 40 - 21000 Hz
  • crossover frequency(s): 280, 2000 Hz
  • speaker type: bass reflex

Cinco is a 3 way high-end floorstanding speaker with coaxial mids-tweeter.

Cinco provides a Celestion FTX0820 coaxial driver (mid and high range). In addition four woofers Celestion FTR08-2011D are in a bass reflex cabinet.

Cinco has been developed by Daniel Gattig and Dennis Frank.

The crossover consists of a 3 rd order high-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter, a bandpasss filter consisting of a high pass and a low pass of 2nd order each (12 dB per octave slope) with an voltage divider for the midrange and a 2nd order low pass (12 dB per octave slope) with parallel RCL to reduce the impedance for the four woofers.

Between 50 Hz and 10000 Hz, the frequency response of this loudspeaker is linear on axis. The decay spectrum is nearly perfect. At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are lower than 1.5% above 500 Hz.

Our kit consists of

  • Celestion FTX-0820 (Coaxial), 8 Ohm

  • PE sealing tape, 5x2 mm, 7.5 m
  • 3x Damping Sonofil 100 x 35 cm for 20 litres
  • Binding Post PK31, gold plated (one pair, red and black)
  • 5m Speaker cable 2x1.5 mm2 black/red

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils where reasonable, 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. All capacitors are of type polypropylen (MKP). In series to the tweeter Clarity-Cap ESA 630 V are employed.

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 13,40 excl. VAT: € 11.26 / $ 12.05

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 four boards per kit (8 boards per speaker pair)
