    Characteristics and Sound Properties
    The STARLET is a 3-way speaker which is extremely good value for money. The individual drivers used here have all proved their worth in numerous well-known constructions.

    At the bottom end of the frequency range, there is the W 200 S - 8 Ohm from the EXPERIENCE V 20, mounted in a 58 litre vented cabinet. The mid- to high-range is covered by the W 100 S - 8 Ohm and DT 94 - 8 Ohm from the ALTO series of speakers.

    The impression given by the STARLET is of a solid low-frequency foundation with powerful, crisp bass. The mid-range has a pleasant, unobtrusive sound, and at the higher frequency ranges the STARLET produces sparkling, clear-cut treble. In a nutshell, the STARLET is an extremely reasonably priced column speaker with a well-rounded tonal character and good power handling capabilities.

    Extract from Mega: "The Starlet sounds ... crisp, pleasant and well-rounded, ... but with a solid bass foundation that ensures sufficient power and depth but without becoming overpowering. The mid- and high-ranges were well distinguished, clearly defined, devoid of all aggression and crisply reproduced." Sound properties and value for money: very good

    Assembly
    The construction of the STARLET has been designed to provide a good starting point for even the least experienced craftsman since all the boards are straight sides and just glued together. The cover for the mid-range (AK 10.13) has to be fitted from behind over the cut-out in the baffle for the mid-range, before the baffle is glued in (remember the cables!) The crossover unit is attached to the rear panel behind the cut-out in the baffle for the bass speakers.

     

    Internal Damping
    The damping material is evenly distributed throughout the entire cabinet. But leave the area directly behind the bass tube free. About 1/4 of a mat of damping material is loosely pushed into the cover before the mid-range drivers are fitted.
