Shorty 2016 is a 2 way compact speaker with chassis from Omnes Audio.
The kit provides a tweeter and a woofer. As tweeter an Omnes Audio T25 H is used. As woofer an Omnes Audio LoCo 6.1 is used.
Shorty 2016 is developed by Thorsten Fischer.
The crossover consists of a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter. The woofer is connected to a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope).
The frequency response of this loudspeaker is linear on axis. The decay spectrum is nearly perfect above 2000 Hz. At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are lower than 0.5% above 300 Hz and mostly below 1% at 95 dB at 1 m .

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker - not available
The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils 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. All capacitors are of type MKP or MKT.

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).
If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 159 x 127 mm universal PCB instead on wood:

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