RetroWave 275 is a two way compact speaker.
RetroWave 275 is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Mundorf and Wavecor.
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Mundorf AMTU110W1.1-R air motion transformer (ribbon-tweeter)
- a Wavecor WF275BD01 woofer
The loudspeaker has been developed by Bernd Timmermanns.
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 perfect.
At medium volume, i.e. 90 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,35% above 100 Hz.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 881,00 excl. VAT: € 740.34 / $ 792.16
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 Mundorf AMTU110W1.1-R are of type polypropylen (MKP) Mundorf MCAP EVO Öl 450 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 9,70 excl. VAT: € 8.15 / $ 8.72
If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 240 x 165 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA240, order no.. str-RA240, price per unit: EUR 8,60 excl. VAT: € 7.23 / $ 7.73
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
