SideKick L is a two way compact speaker.
SideKick L is a loudspeaker with drivers of Omnes Audio and Tang Band. Two passive radiators provide deep bass.
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Omnes Audio BB 3.5 full range driver
- a Tang Band W5-1138 SMF woofer
The loudspeaker has been developed by Blue Planet Acoustic.
The crossover consists of:
- a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the full range driver.
- 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 low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 1% above 300 Hz and doesn't exceed 1.5% at 95 dB at 1 m between 300 and 15000 Hz.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker - not available
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 fullrange driver are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap PWA 160 V and Audaphon MKP 400 V.
