Felis is a two way compact speaker.
Felis is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Audaphon and Wavecor.
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Audaphon Neo CD 2.0 ribbon-tweeter
- a Wavecor WF152CU13 woofer
The loudspeaker has been developed by Dennis Frank and Daniel Gattig.
The crossover consists of:
- a 3rd order high-pass filter (18 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 perfectly linear.
The decay spectrum is perfect.
At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,8% above 500 Hz and doesn't exceed 1,1% at 95 dB at 1 m between 300 and 15000 Hz.
"Didnít I mention it before: I like small boxes with large ribbons. And Felis gives me a lot of arguments for liking her. The bass, which is already deep in the open air, goes a whole lot deeper in the listening room: The 15-centimeter Wavecor also optimally reproduces dynamic bass attacks and implements them with ease. Right up to the midrange, the chassis is extremely linear and balanced, while also being absolutely precise in terms of fine dynamics. The transition to the tweeter is absolutely seamless. This ribbon plays with an absolute ease and dynamism that only this type of chassis is able to implement. The spatial representation is extremely precise - especially with a well-recorded orchestra, it is really fun to soak up the concert hall atmosphere. And when things get a little rough with rock and pop, Felis goes along with it."
"The Felis is a very elegant loudspeaker, who also goes along with everything acoustically, what you feed it with and that on a very high standard. "

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 for the Audaphon Neo CD 2.0 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap ESA 250 V.

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 12,20 excl. VAT: € 10.25 / $ 11.48
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 / $ 4.42
We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
