Lucy AMT 22 is a two way compact speaker.

Lucy AMT 22 is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Mundorf and Wavecor.

The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Mundorf AMTU160W1.1-R air motion transformer (ribbon-tweeter)
- two Wavecor WF152CU13 woofers

The loudspeaker has been developed by Dennis Frank and Daniel Gattig.

The crossover consists of:
- a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a 3rd order low-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the woofer.

The frequency response of this speaker is perfectly linear.

The decay spectrum is nearly perfect.

At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,6% above 600 Hz and doesn't exceed 0,7% at 95 dB at 1 m between 300 and 15000 Hz.

An excerpt from the Klang+Ton review (Translation of the author into English)

"The Lucy 22 AMT is a bit more gripping in the high frequency range than the Lucy X2 Ribbon, but that's a lot of fun listening. The selected tuning in the low-frequency range is just right for small to medium-sized rooms: precision and sufficient attack in the bass are definitely available, above that there is a very neutral mid-range and dynamic highs with fine resolution and immensely precise localization. Yes, the AMT should be placed at ear level - simply because the speaker then can fully demonstrate its strengths. And because we currently have two suitable candidates on offer: Combined with a low-coupled subwoofer, things really get going: Impressive even with the inexpensive Quatro 5 from BPA - then even more precisely with the DSP-controlled MX12CB by Variant. And because it was just so nice: With the 21-inch Cinecor Sub, things became really big. "

Conclusion of the magazine Klang+Ton:

"A worthy continuation of the Lucy series - elegant sound and fun factor combined in a compact housing."

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils or Mundorf copper foil 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 Mundorf AMTU160W1.1-R are of type polypropylen (MKP) Mundorf Mcap Supreme EVO Öl 800 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).

  • ceramic resistor 8.2 Ohm/20 Watt

Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.     EUR 10,50 excl. VAT: € 8.82 / $ 9.53

universal PCB

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 / $ 4.27
We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
