Retro-HiFi-PA is a two way floorstanding speaker.
Retro-HiFi-PA is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Redcatt and LaVoce.
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Redcatt 140FCD-087 + LaVoce HD1004 horn with driver
- a Redcatt 121FIND-233 woofer
The loudspeaker has been developed by Bernd Timmermanns.
The crossover consists of:
- a 3rd order high-pass filter (18 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 medium volume, i.e. 90 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,33% above 100 Hz.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 227,00 excl. VAT: € 190.76 / $ 202.20
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 Redcatt 140FCD-087 + LaVoce HD1004 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Audaphon MKP CAP Superior 400 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 10,50 excl. VAT: € 8.82 / $ 9.35
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 / $ 5.26
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
