    Characteristics and Sound Properties
    With a cabinet volume of just over 56 litres, the QUINTETT could not be said to be a small speaker. Despite its size, it comes across as elegant and sophisticated, thanks to the arrangement of its drivers and the slim baffle. Fitted with no less than five AL 130 - 8 Ohm, it is generously equipped but stopping short of exaggeration.

    Four of the AL 130 - 8 Ohm, with a combined diaphragm area of 316 cm², are fitted in the bass reflex cabinet and generate sufficient bass, so no subwoofer is needed. The QUINTETT is based on a development idea suggested by the German "Klang & Ton" Hi-Fi magazine which was then finalised by modifying the crossover.

    The uppermost of the five AL 130 - 8 Ohm, which is neatly housed in its own enclosed 5-litre cabinet, together with the tried-and-tested KE 25 SC - 8 Ohm ceramic dome tweeter, produce clear mid-to-high-range sound above 500 Hz.

    In terms of its sound quality, the QUINTETT can be described as rich in detail and very precise. It uncompromisingly shows up every defect in a recording but, on the other hand, reproduces good recordings perfectly, without the slightest distortion and with remarkable positioning accuracy. Bass sound is reproduced very accurately and clearly and, thanks to the be-wiring connections, can be controlled separately from the mid- and high range frequencies. The QUINTETT is, as a result, not a speaker that produces some softened-down mash, it is, on the contrary, a realist that can easily cope with maximum volume settings.

    First, the 19 mm wood cabinet panels are butt-jointed and glued. To make construction easier, begin with the side panel. To this, glue the front panel, rear panel, lid and frame for the removable floor. The strengthening struts and dividers for the mid-ton camber can then be positioned and glued in place. The divider has to be bevelled as shown in the drawing and a hole (8 mm) drilled in it for the wires. Then the remaining side piece is glued in place and the floor screwed in place.

    To provide maximum visual impact and acoustic quality, the drivers should be countersunk so that they are flush. You will need a router and a corresponding circle cutting tool for this. Finally, the openings for the drivers and terminals are cut out. It is not possible to fit the bass reflex tubes without modifying the opening. As a result, the edge of the inner opening will have to be cut on the left and right (as shown in the drawing) to enable it to be passed through the corresponding speaker opening.

    The bass crossover is attached to the removable floor while the mid-range to high crossover is fitted to the lower part of the front panel so that the PCBs are easily accessible later.

    The hole for the cables in the mid-range driver cabinet should be sealed later with hot-melt glue or a similar substance.

    Stability can be improved by fitting a larger base board whose design can be freely varied.


    Internal Damping
    The damping material is loosely arranged in the cabinet. Two mats are placed inside the mid-range housing while 6 mats are placed in the woofer spaces. The space behind the bass reflex tubes should remain free.
