Twerc is an two way floorstanding speaker with drivers of high quality from Wavecor. The kit is delivered with Wavecor TW022WA04 tweeter. The woofers are the Wavecor WF120BD04 with balance-drive technology (BD) and fibre glass cone.

Twerc has been developed by Wolfgang Grasshoff, Lautsprecher-Berlin.

The crossover consists of a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter. The woofers are connected to a 2 nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope).

The frequency response of this speaker is nearly linear; Wolfgang Grasshoff choose a drop of acoustic pressure in the presence range. The decay spectrum is nearly perfect. At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are mostly lower than 0,5% above 300 Hz.

Our kit consists of

  • PE sealing tape, 5x2 mm, 7.5 m
  • Damping Sonofil 100 x 35 cm for 20 litres
  • Binding Post PK31, gold plated (one pair, red and black)
  • 3m Speaker cable 2x1.5 mm2, transparent
  • 1,5x Pan screws 3.5x17 black, cross recess, 8 pieces

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   EUR 455,00 excl. VAT: € 382.35 / $ 409.12

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air 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 MKP capacitors (polypropylen); in series to the tweeter a ClarityCap type ESA is applied.

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 12,50 excl. VAT: € 10.50 / $ 11.24

universal PCBs

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 140 x 102 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA140, order no.. str-RA140, price per unit:   EUR 4,20 excl. VAT: € 3.53 / $ 3.78
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
