Varde is a two way disco compact speaker.
Varde is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of SB Audience .
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a SB Audience BIANCO-44CD-T + HL-1018 horn with driver
- a SB Audience BIANCO-10MW200 mids driver
The loudspeaker has been developed by Dennis Frank.
The crossover consists of:
- a 3rd order high-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a 3rd order low-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the woofer.
The frequency response of this speaker is nearly linear.
The decay spectrum (waterfall spectrum) shows a decelerated swing-out behaviour in the mid-range.
At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0.8% above 500 Hz and doesn't exceed 2% at 95 dB at 1 m between 300 and 15000 Hz.
"Placed near a back wall, the Varde produses a real and dynamic deep bass that it is a pleasure - so, apart from its not really portable construction, the box can also be used as a mini PA box for smaller concerts without additional subwoofer support. And in its very domain of playing good-mood music at high volume levels, the box is state-of-the-art: especially well-hung guitar rock comes with the necessary punch and bite - the best example of this has always been: AC / DC with " Hells Bells ": The big bell comes across as powerful at the beginning, then the grippy guitar riff by Angus Young and finally the bass drum that goes straight into the pit of your stomach - that's exactly how it has to be. The Varde is so good that I even listened to a bit of classical music with it - it works quite well, although there are better boxes for this, so back to AC / DC ... and Deep Purple ... and ..."
"The Varde is a very powerful small loudspeaker for parties and pubs and small concerts as well. "

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. The capacitors for the SB Audience BIANCO-44CD-T + HL-1018 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap ESA 250 V and 630 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).
Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board. EUR 11,90 excl. VAT: € 10.00 / $ 11.60
If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a universal PCB instead on wood
PCB 220x155 mm, order no. I-8805002, price per unit: EUR 11,80 excl. VAT: € 9.92 / $ 11.50
We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
