Kormoran is developed by Thomas Schmidt and Holger Barske. Kormoran is home to a Audiopur air motion transformer and a 14 cm mid-woofer Wavecor WF146WA02.

The crossover consists of a 3nd order high-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) and a 3rd order low-pass filter.

Conclusion of the magazine Klang+Ton:

"Units of cutting-edge technology. Very good and not expensive: That's the way a DIY kit should be. "

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit comes with high-value ClarityCap MKP foil capacitors, type SA. The inductances are baked varnished coils 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.

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 19,30 excl. VAT: € 16.22 / $ 17.35

universal PCBs

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 159 x 127 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA160, order no.. str-RA160, price per unit:   EUR 5,90 excl. VAT: € 4.96 / $ 5.31
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
