Harwood-Cinema Sat AM24 small is a two way compact speaker.

Harwood-Cinema Sat AM24 small is a closed-cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Harwood .

The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Harwood AM 24 air motion transformer (ribbon-tweeter)
- a Harwood TM 130/25F1 woofer

The loudspeaker has been developed by Bernd Timmermanns.

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 nearly linear.

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

At medium volume, i.e. 90 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,35% above 200 Hz.

Kit with high-end crossover

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 Harwood AM 24 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Mundorf MCAP EVO Öl 450 V.

Impedance correction

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).

  • Audaphon MKT CAP 10 μF / 160 Vdc
  • Audaphon MKT CAP 33 μF / 160 Vdc
  • 0.7 mm air core coil, 0.47 mH/0.50 Ohm
  • ceramic resistor 6.8 Ohm/20 Watt
  • Metal-oxide resistor, 10W 6.8 Ohm (blue-grey-gold)

Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.     EUR 20,00 excl. VAT: € 16.81 / $ 16.81

universal PCB

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 140 x 102 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA140, order no.. str-RA140, price per unit:   EUR 4,20 excl. VAT: € 3.53 / $ 3.53
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
