Vida is a two way compact speaker.
Vida is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Audaphon and ASE/ScanSpeak.
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Audaphon AMT 2i air motion transformer
- a ASE/ScanSpeak 18W-8522-G01 woofer
The loudspeaker has been developed by Dennis Frank and Daniel Gattig.
The crossover consists of:
- a 3rd order high-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- 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. 80 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,7% above 300 Hz and doesn't exceed 0,8% at 90 dB at 1 m between 300 and 15000 Hz.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 454,25 excl. VAT: € 381.72 / $ 438.59
Price for a pair of custom speakers of any color EUR 2907,80 excl. VAT: € 2443.53 / $ 2807.53
The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coil and Mundorf copper foil coil 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 Audaphon AMT 2i are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap CSA 630 V.
Kit with high-end-crossover without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 553,68 excl. VAT: € 465.28 / $ 534.59
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 12,48 excl. VAT: € 10.49 / $ 12.05
If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a universal PCB instead on wood
PCB 150x115 mm, tin plated, price per unit: EUR 4,58 excl. VAT: € 3.85 / $ 4.42
We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
