    Characteristics and Sound Properties
    With its CONGA Visaton has produced a "big brother" to accompany the classic 3-band combinations such as the CLASSIC 200 or CLASSIC 200 GF. With a cabinet volume of 85 litres and the 25-cm subwoofer drivers mounted on the front, this column speaker is an impressive eye-catcher.

    The external appearance is underlined by the solid bass foundations provided by the TIW 250 XS - 8 OHM. This high-end woofer masters the art of powerful, responsive surges of bass just as efficiently as more restrained and subtle bass accompaniment.

    The AL 130 M - 8 OHM, the specially modified version of the popular AL 130 - 8 OHM designed to produce higher sensitivity in the mid-range, continues the virtually linear frequency response seamlessly at a high level.

    The KE 25 SC - 8 OHM tweeter, which cuts in at 3500 Hz, has no difficulty at all producing brilliant, crystal clear treble, even at high volume levels, which is why this ceramic dome driver is so ideally suited to rounding off the upper end of this powerful 3-band combination.

    Well aware that the following statement may polarise opinions: the CONGA speakers are real men's speakers.

    Extract from Klang & Ton 05/2008: Visaton did not cut corners when they configured the Conga. On the contrary, this speaker maker from Haan, Germany, has packed its highest quality chassis into this design. The 25-centimetre TIW (250XS), the AL 130 M and the ceramic dome driver (KE 25 SC) offer consistently high quality and form an exceptionally solid partnership. (...)

    These speakers can cope easily with both parties and concerts at the original volume levels. (...) The way these speakers reproduce this volume of sound so effortlessly, generate output levels which are utterly natural and stress-free and finely resolve the entire frequency range is, indeed, highly impressive.

    (...) The Conga sounds the way it looks: voluminous, powerful, high-end like. It unites a dynamism long since forgotten with a balanced tonality and high-precision, broadband sound reproduction.

    Assembly
    All the cabinet panels are cut from 19 mm chipboard or medium density fibreboard, butt-jointed and glued. After that, the openings for the driver and terminals are cut out and any necessary recesses cut. The chamfer on the outer baffle can be made either before the cabinet is glued together or afterwards.

    The crossover has to be mounted on the inner side of the rear panel across from the woofer.

     

    Internal Damping
    The damping material is loosely pushed into the cabinet. The space immediately behind/above the bass reflex tunnel must remain free.
