Cobra-Horn RBT   Floorstanding as in Hobby HiFi 5/2015

Technical data
  • impedance: 8 Ohm
  • sensivity (2,83V/1m): 93 dB
  • size (HxWxD): 1078 x 338 x 500 mm
  • frequency range (-8dB): 50 - 30000 Hz
  • crossover frequency(s): 5000 Hz
  • speaker type: Horn

Cobra-Horn RBT is huge speaker with Monacor fullrange loudspeaker SP-200X and magnetostat Monacor RBT-95SR. It has been developed by Bernd Timmermanns.

The crossover consists of a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the fullrange speaker and a 2rd order high-pass filter for the magnetostat

The frequency response of this loudspeaker is suitably flat.

Our kit consists of

  • magnetostat Monacor RBT-95SR
  • Monacor SP-200 X full range driver
  • 0,5x PE sealing tape, 5x2 mm, 7.5 m
  • 2,5x Damping Sonofil 100 x 35 cm for 20 litres
  • Binding Post PK31, gold plated (one pair, red and black)
  • 2m Speaker cable 2x2.5 mm2, transparent
  • Pan screws 4x20 black, cross recess, 8 pieces
  • Plan for DIY kit

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   EUR 245,00 excl. VAT: € 205.88 / $ 224.41

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit comes with Mundorf MCAP capacitors. The inductances are baked varnished 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 9,80 excl. VAT: € 8.24 / $ 8.98

universal PCB

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 140 x 102 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA140, order no.. str-RA140, price per unit:   EUR 4,20 excl. VAT: € 3.53 / $ 3.85
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
