Javari is a high performance loudspeaker system that can be configured for different situations:

The heart of the Javari is a compact speaker which transforms into the high-midrange component of XL and XXL floor-standing configurations. A high efficiency Alcone AC 15 textile dome tweeter is paried with a Celestion FTR08-2011D, giving an astoundingly high overall efficiency of 93 dB.

Due to its high efficiency the Javari is a lot of fun to use, whether it is controlled by a tube amplifier or the broad dynamic range required for the home cinema.

The Javary XL floor-standing speaker uses the Javari Top, accompanied by a supporting subwoofer tower. Subwoofer driver is an Alcone 10, driven by a Mivoc AM 80 plate amplifier (since 2016).

The Javari uses a crossover of 2nd order (12 dB per octave slope).

The frequency response of the speaker is quite linear with a slight peak at 12 kHz at an average sound pressure level of 85 dB (1m). The non-linear distortions above 400 Hz are extremely low and well controlled with just95 dB SPL (1m). The decay spectrum shows almost no irregularities except for a small resonance around 500 Hz.

An excerpt from the Klang+Ton review

"In a small listening room the Javari Top plays fully satisfactory, even with a small-power SE tube amplifier we had a joyful listening experience - especially when we added the active subwoofer box and the tube amp only had to drive the satellite speaker above 150Hz. This combination seems ideal for people with single-ended amps willing to forget about tube amp purism and wanting to enjoy the superior sound of their electronics without their listening room crammed with huge horns. The Javari delivers a well-balanced and relaxed sound impression, only to surprise the listener with their explosive dynamics. The most saturated sound comes from the passive XXL floor-standing Javari of course driven by a powerful amplifier with sufficient damping factor. For accurately adjusting the active subwoofer you need a sensitive hand - but for critical rooms regarding room modes you can achieve a much more subtle adjustment with the help of an activated bass. Whether you play your music loud or gentle: The Javari floor-standing speaker always delivers a competent impression of a rich sound, great dynamics and precision. Whether your prefer analytic listening or musical pleasure: Javari gives you the choice."

Conclusion of the magazine Klang+Ton:

"Full upgradeability, full flexibility: You can enter the Javari system by a fair-priced compact class entry and live it up to the fully active high-end floor-standing tower. In their own price segment, all variants show an outstanding quality and the best value for your money - regarding efficiency and sound."

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   - not available

Kit with high-end crossover

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   EUR 682,00 excl. VAT: € 573.11 / $ 618.96

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).

Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.     EUR 17,50 excl. VAT: € 14.71 / $ 15.88

universal PCB

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a universal PCB instead on wood
PCB 220x155 mm, order no. I-8805002, price per unit:   EUR 11,80 excl. VAT: € 9.92 / $ 10.71
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
