The CT 289 (BlueStart 3.5 FAST) is a FAST (Fullrange and Subwoofer Technology) speaker with drivers from Omnes Audio and LPG. The kit is delivered with the Omnes Audio BB 3.5 as fullrange driver and the LPG 13 for the bass range.
CT 289 (BlueStart 3.5 FAST) is developed by Thorsten Fischer.
The crossover consists of a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the woofer. The fullrange driver is connected to a 12 dB high-pass filter in series to a serial resistor.
The frequency response of this speaker is nearly linear on axis (with typical resonances of fullrange speakers) and with a slight sink at 300 Hz. The decay spectrum is without faults. At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are mostly lower than 0.5 % above 400 Hz and stays below 2 % at 95 dB at 1 m .

The high-end kit is delivered complete with backlack 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 capacitor in series to the fullrange driver are high quality polypropylen (MKP).
