To keep the cabinet size down to suit a normal living room, we refrained
from using a horn in the bass section in favour of the large radiating area
of two W 250 S at 8 Ohm in a sealed enclosure.
As a special feature the Fiesta 25 comes equipped with a slightly altered
DK 8 P 100 V/15 W midrange pressure chamber horn. The driver's characteristics
between 500 and 500 Hz were quite astonishing. Alteration of the driver is
accomplished in no time and is described in our building instruction. For
high frequencies the proven HTH 8.7 horn tweeter is added.
The unusual combination of these drivers is not without problems and requires
a careful design of the crossover, in order to achieve the ambitious goal
of producing a loudspeaker that complies with hi-fi standards. Even though
a frequency response as flat as with conventional speakers is not possible,
the sound is remarkable. The Fiesta 25 produces a pleasant sound - from extremely
detailed tops over clear and open mids down to deep and punchy bass. In contrast
to standard loudspeakers the Fiesta 25 is - if required - easily capable of
shaking a living room with extreme peaks and threatening, sustained high volumes.
A well controlled directionality of the relatively focused horns ensures that
appropriate recordings are reproduced with precise positioning and depth of
the instruments, under the condition that the listener has taken a seat in
the hot spot between the speakers.
To sum it up it can be said: this loudspeaker is great fun with definite hi-fi qualities.
