Copernicus vollaktiv is a four way wall-mounted speaker.

Copernicus exists in five variants:

Copernicus vollaktiv is a closed-cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Mundorf and Wavecor.

The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Mundorf AMTU160W1.1-R air motion transformer (ribbon-tweeter)
- two Wavecor WF182CU13 mids drivers
- a Wavecor WF259PA01 woofer
- two Wavecor SW275BD01 subwoofers

The loudspeaker has been developed by Dennis Frank and Daniel Gattig.

The frequency response of this speaker is perfectly linear.

The decay spectrum as shown in the waterfall diagram is exemplary, free of any disturbing resonance.

At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,5% above 500 Hz and doesn't exceed 0,6% at 95 dB at 1 m between 300 and 15000 Hz.

An excerpt from the Klang+Ton review (Translation of the author into English)

"The Copernicus´ performance with the free-field setting directly in front of the wall is impressing, but in the long run it is clearly too powerful. So I first turned the bass department down by about 6 decibels - that´s better. The impression of infinitely deep and dynamic bass is retained, but it doesn't immediately jump in the listener's face (or stomach). This impression extends over the entire audible frequency range: you can clearly hear that there is significantly more membrane area in every position than with your standard loudspeakers. And because the whole thing is so beautifully linear and without any distortion, you can always get really loud without stressing your ears - very good! When it comes to home cinema, things are going just as well... I caught myself stepping on the gas on the subs for the correct doomsday soundtrack à la "Independance Day" or "2012" - but then that's not entirely possible without worrying about the building´s structural integrity…. "

Conclusion of the magazine Klang+Ton:

" Perfectly tuned wall box with an integrated subwoofer solution that leaves no desires whatsoever. "
