  • sensivity (2,83V/1m): 86,5 dB
  • size (HxWxD): 370 x 180 x 300 mm

SatoriMotion is a two way compact speaker.

SatoriMotion is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Harwood Acoustics and SB Acoustics.

The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Harwood Acoustics AM 24 tweeter
- a SB Acoustics Satori MW13PNW-4 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 3rd order low-pass filter (18 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 0,35% above 200 Hz.

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with copper foil and 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 Harwood Acoustics AM 24 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Mundorf MCAP EVO Silber Gold Öl.

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).

  • Audaphon MKP CAP Superior 4.7 μF; / 400 Vdc
  • Mundorf, electrolytic capacitor, unetched, 33μF / 70 Vdc
  • Mundorf baked varnish air core coil BL71, 0.33 mH/0.48 Ohm
  • ceramic resistor 6.8 Ohm/20 Watt
  • Metal-oxide resistor, 10W 10 Ohm (brown-black-black)

Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.     EUR 19,84 excl. VAT: € 17.10 / $ 20.18

universal PCB

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 240 x 165 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA240, order no.. I-2767, price per unit:   EUR 7,41 excl. VAT: € 6.39 / $ 7.54
We recommend a half board per kit (one board for a speaker pair)
