    Characteristics and Sound Properties
    The BIJOU 170 is a compact shelf-top speaker with high-end drivers as the original BIJOU. The AL 170 - 8 Ohm woofer in the closed 10.5 l case provides for a kick and exact bass which works well and without booming by mounting on a wall. This was reached by a slightly rising frequency response to about 1000 Hz, so that the BIJOU 170 should be used preferentially as a wall or shelf-mounted speaker.

    In this duet the high tone reproduction takes over the also well known ceramic tweeter KE 25 SC - 8 Ohm which is extremely rich in detail and exact in work.

    The BIJOU 170 is available as single version and can be used therefore e.g. as a centre speaker, but, of course, also as a front and effect loudspeaker in home cinema systems, supported by an additional subwoofer.

    The case consists of straight panels glued edge to edge what makes the construction possibly easy. First the single panels (see cabinet parts list) are cut and glued together. The panel fixation succeeds with vices or package adhesive tape.

    That the panels can not slip together, e.g. stamped cut nail ends can be used as an anti-slide help. After the case is completely built up, the holes for loudspeakers and connection terminal can be milled and cut out. In the end the 45° bevels of the front panel can be attached either by a router or by a circular saw bench.

    To make the mounting of the crossover on the rear panel as simple as possible, the respectively holes should be pre-drilled (do not drill through).

    The last operation is the surface treatment, which means polishing, painting, veneering or bonding.


    Internal Damping
    The damping material should be pushed into the cabinet through the woofer hole and loosely arranged there.
