New Needle is a transsionline speaker with an Omnes Audio fullrange driver: Omnes Audio BB 3.5.

New Needle has been developed by Thorsten Fischer.

The crossover consists of an RCL circuit which is smoothing the frequency in the midrange.

The frequency response of this speaker is well balanced. The decay spectrum is nearly perfect. At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are lower than 0,5% above 700 Hz and doesn't exceed 1% at 95 dB at 1 m .

Our kit consists of

  • Omnes Audio, full range BB 3.5
  • Damping Sonofil 100 x 35 cm for 20 litres
  • Binding Post PK31, gold plated (one pair, red and black)
  • 2m Speaker cable 2x1.5 mm2, transparent
  • 0,5x Pan screws 4x20 black, cross recess, 8 pieces
  • Plan for DIY kit

the crossover components (right),
to be mounted on a small wooden board.

  • Audaphon MKP CAP Superior 3.3 μF / 400 Vdc
  • 1.0 mm air core coil, 2.2 mH/0.89 Ohm
  • Metal-oxide resistor, 10W 3.9 Ohm (orange-white-gold)

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   EUR 73,50 excl. VAT: € 61.76 / $ 66.71

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with a baked varnish air core coil 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 capacitor is a high quality Clarity-Cap ESA 250 V.

Kit with high-end-crossover without cabinet, price per speaker   EUR 96,80 excl. VAT: € 81.34 / $ 87.85

universal PCBs

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 / $ 3.81
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
