Kirana is a two way compact speaker.
Kirana is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Audiopur and Wavecor.
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Audiopur AMT9M air motion transformer (ribbon-tweeter)
- a Wavecor WF118WA05 woofer
The loudspeaker has been developed by Dennis Frank.
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 is nearly perfect.
At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,5% above 300 Hz and doesn't exceed 1,4% at 95 dB at 1 m between 300 and 15000 Hz.
"Even in our relatively large listening room, the "Kirana" could assert itself splendidly as long as we did not push its dynamic limits. There is even such a thing as real bass coming from the small housing, which lays a pleasantly full and, if necessary, dynamic foundation. The mid-range also makes a balanced and defined impression, while the AMT sets its quite clear highlights in the upper range of the audio spectrum. Overall, the speaker does a really good job in view of its very compact dimensions and sounds a lot more adult than the size of the tiny midwoofer would suggest."

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 Audiopur AMT9M 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 5,00 excl. VAT: € 4.20 / $ 5.00
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 / $ 4.70
We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
