    Characteristics and Sound Properties
    The COUPLET LIGHT is a compact D Appolito configuration shelf speaker. It can be used as a shelf-top speaker or mounted on free-standing supports. In contrast to the original COUPLET, this system uses two W 130 S - 8 OHM as woofers. The tweeter and the cabinet design with its flow-optimised BR 25.50 bass reflex tube have been taken over unchanged.

    The result is a speaker that maintains its linear characteristics right across the frequency range. Due to the well balanced medium range, the fine details of music reproduction, in particular, comes across particularly clearly. The excellent omnidirectional sound distribution creates a particularly room-filling music reproduction and clear location of each individual instrument or voice. The lowest-range bass comes across equally powerfully. In short, the COUPLET LIGHT is a speaker that is really good fun.

    All the cabinet panels are cut from 19 mm chipboard or medium density fibreboard, butt-jointed and glued. The chamfers on the baffle can be applied with a power jig or circular saw set to 45° or applied later using an orbital sander. Next, cut out the openings for the drivers, the bass reflex tube and the terminals.

    Due to the small size of the cut-outs in the baffle, it is difficult to mount the crossover inside the speaker cabinet. It would be possible to make the base removable. However, it is easier to wrap the crossover in damping material and place it through the lower cut-out in the baffle on the floor of the cabinet. When you begin fitting the drivers, start with the bass reflex tube. In order to be able to get the inner trumpet flange through the opening for the upper subwoofer it will be necessary to carefully remove about 5 mm from both sides of the flange.


    Internal Damping
    he damping material is loosely arranged below the bass reflex tube in the cabinet in such a way that the area around the vent remains free.
