TBTL-W6 Mk2 is a three way floorstanding speaker.
TBTL-W6 Mk2 is a transmission-line loudspeaker with drivers of Omnes Audio and Tang Band.
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Omnes Audio AMT 50 air motion transformer (ribbon-tweeter)
- a Tang Band W4-2142 mids driver
- a Tang Band W6-1139 SIF 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 band pass consisting of a 2nd order high pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) and a 3rd order low-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the mids-woofer.
- a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 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 2% above 100 Hz.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 328,00 excl. VAT: € 275.63 / $ 308.71
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 Omnes Audio AMT 50 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Mundorf MCAP EVO Oil / 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).
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 7,60 excl. VAT: € 6.39 / $ 7.15
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
