CT 296 is a two way compact speaker.
CT 296 is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Monacor .
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Monacor HT-22/8 tweeter
- a Monacor SP-13/4 woofer
The loudspeaker has been developed by Markus Hasse.
The crossover consists of:
- a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the woofer.
The frequency response of this speaker is nearly linear.
The decay spectrum (waterfall spectrum) shows a decelerated swing-out behaviour in the mid-range.
At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0.5% above 500 Hz and doesn't exceed 1.5% at 95 dB at 1 m between 500 and 15000 Hz.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 94,85 excl. VAT: € 79.71 / $ 91.58
The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils on important parts of the crossover 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 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Audaphon 400V or Mundoef electrolytic capacitors..

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 universal PCB instead on wood

We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
