ProBox 6 dB is a two way compact speaker. In a previous magazine Klang+Ton the kit Probox with 12 dB crossover was introduced.

ProBox 6 dB is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Visaton .

The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Visaton G 25 FFL 8 Ohm tweeter
- a Visaton W 130 S 8 Ohm midrange / bass driver

The loudspeaker has been developed by Thomas Schmidt and Holger Barske.

The crossover consists of:
- a first order high-pass filter (6 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a first order low-pass filter (6 dB per octave slope) for the mids-woofer.

The frequency response of this speaker is nearly linear.

The decay spectrum (waterfall spectrum) shows a decelerated swing-out behaviour in the mid-range.

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

Our kit consists of

  • Visaton G 25 FFL, 8 Ohm

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   EUR 138,00 excl. VAT: € 115.97 / $ 128.72

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with 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 capacitors for the Visaton G 25 FFL 8 Ohm is of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap ESA 630 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).


Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.     EUR 11,60 excl. VAT: € 9.75 / $ 10.82

universal PCB

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 140 x 102 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA140, order no.. I-2765, price per unit:   EUR 3,70 excl. VAT: € 3.11 / $ 3.45
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
