FRITZSPEAKERS- CUSTOM BUILT LOUDSPEAKERS SINCE 1973!
FRITZSPEAKERS.COM CARBON 7 MK 2 MONITOR LOUDSPEAKERS NEW MODEL
This is a new lower cost version of my highly regarded and reviewed
Carbon 7 and Carbon 7 SE designs. It has an upgraded lighter and faster
7 inch ScanSpeak mid/bass driver with more midrange detail and a wide
dispersion textile dome tweeter. I like the sound of this new ScanSpeak tweeter better than the more expensive Illuminator used in my SE version. With my series crossovers, these are very easy to drive even with lower powered tube amps. The Carbon 7 MK 2's are similar to my more expensive Carrera BE model which I also have listed here on AudioGon. Google Fritzspeakers and Modwright Youtube video for an AV Showrooms video of the Carreras playing on a 6 watt 300B tube amp at last falls Capital Audio Fest near Washington DC.
I currently have a Teakwood, Walnut and striped Ebony pair in stock and ready to ship and can build them in many other wood finishes to ship in about 7 to 10 days.
All of my loudspeakers come with a 30 day money back trial period to make sure you are absolutely delighted with their performance on your system and room acoustics.
Go to my web site & read the many reviews of the original Carbon 7 & Carbon 7 SE, this new model sounds even better. BTW- The original Carbon 7 was on The Absoulte Sounds recommended component list for 6 years in a row!
Here's some specs on this new model-
Frequency Response: 38Hz-35Khz +/- 3 db
Impedance: 8 Ohms nominal @ 1000 kHz-
Very easy load on any amplifier including low powered tube amps. See Impedance & fantastic phase curves below

Pulp composite cone with non-resonant low loss butyl rubber surround

This unit is an improved version of the highly praised 18W/8545-00
midwoofer, where a new aluminum chassis, an updated cone and a new
spider as well as a few other details are introduced, these updates
improves mechanical stability and sound performance.
High-quality magnet system design with patented Symmetric Drive (SD-1)
continues to be a key feature. The magnet system is the new SD-1 system
which eliminates modulation and dynamic distortion, as well as clipping
distortion created as it exceeds its maximum linear excursion.
