Statement   DJ and power speaker system as in Hobby Hifi 6/2017

Technical data
  • impedance: 8 Ohm
  • sensivity (2,83V/1m): 95 dB
  • size (HxWxD): 800 x 636 x 400 mm
  • frequency range (-8dB): 40 - 24000 Hz
  • crossover frequency(s): 2000 Hz
  • speaker type: bass reflex

Statement is a two-way compact loudspeaker equipped with PA loudspeakers and can therefore generate very high levels.

Statement is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Monacor and Celestion.

The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Celestion CDX1-1430 driver with Monacor MRH-200 horn
- one Monacor SPA-115PA woofer

The loudspeaker has been developed by Bernd Timmermanns and Philipp Busch.

The crossover consists of:
- a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the woofer to which an LC circuit is connected in series.

The frequency response of the speaker is balanced. The decay spectrum is practically faultless. The non-linear distortions remain at 90 dB (1m) above 50 Hz almost consistently below 1.5%.

Our kit consists of

  • Celestion CDX1-1430, 1.4 inch-Aluminium-Driver
  • with Monacor MRH-200, 320 x 198 mm horn
  • Monacor SPA-115PA bass driver
  • 2x Bass reflex tube MBR-110
  • PE sealing tape, 5x2 mm, 7.5 m
  • 3x Damping Sonofil 100 x 35 cm for 20 litres
  • Foam N25-30, 100 x 50 cm, black
  • Binding Post PK31, gold plated (one pair, red and black)
  • 3m Speaker cable 2x2.5 mm2, transparent
  • 2x Allen wood screws, black, 5x30 mm, 8 pieces
  • Plan for DIY kit

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   - not available

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish and vakuum impregnated 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 tweeter are of type polypropylen (MKP) Rike oil paper S-Cap with 630 V.

Kit with high-end-crossover without cabinet, price per speaker   - not available

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).

Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.     EUR 33,90 excl. VAT: € 28.49 / $ 30.48

The impedance correction is suitable for amplifiers up to max. 40 watt.

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.. 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)
