TiStar 4 Ribbon is a small 2-way-shelf-speaker. It is developed by Thorsten Fischer of Blue Planet Acoustics.

TiStar 4 Ribbon is a bass reflex speaker with Tang Band and Omnes Audio drivers: an Omnes Audio ribbon tweeter and a Tang Band fullrange. It is a bassreflex loudspeaker.

The crossover consists of 3rd order filters (18 dB per octave slope).

The frequency response is nearly flat, the harmonic distortion is low at low levels (85 dB / 1m). The decay spectrum shows slight resonances at 500 Hz to 1500 Hz; apart from that it is without any fault.
 

  

Our kit consists of

  • Omnes Audio ribbon tweeter RT 3.5 H
  • Tang Band W4-1337 SDF
  • Damping fleece MT Bondum 800 (30 x 50 x 2 cm)
  • Binding Post PK31, gold plated (one pair, red and black)
  • 2m Speaker cable 2x1.5 mm2, transparent
  • Pan screws 4x20 black, cross recess, 8 pieces
  • Plan for DIY kit

the crossover components (right),
to be mounted on a small wooden board.

  • 2 pcs Audaphon MKP CAP Superior / 400 Vdc
  • Audaphon MKT / 160 Vdc
  • 0.7 mm air core coil
  • 2 pcs 1.3 mm air core coil
  • 3 pcs metal-oxide resistor, 10W

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 178,00 excl. VAT: € 149.58 / $ 172.02

Kit with high-end crossover

In the kit with high end crossover ClarityCap foil capacitors of type ESA are used in series to the ribbon tweeter. All coils are designed as baked varnish air core coils to suppress vibrations in the coil.

  • 2 pcs ClarityCap ESA capacitor / 250 Vdc
  • Audaphon MKP CAP Superior / 400 Vdc
  • Mundorf baked varnish air core coil BL71
  • 2 pcs Mundorf baked varnish air core coil BL140
  • 3 pcs Metal-oxide resistor, 10W

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 199,00 excl. VAT: € 167.23 / $ 192.31

Impedance correction

  If you want to use a valve amplifier with this speaker an impedance correction should be employed. In this case the component quality is less important; therefore, we offer only one kit (upon request higher quality components are available).

  • Mundorf, electrolytic capacitor, unetched / 50 Vdc
  • 0.7 mm air core coil
  • Metal-oxide resistor, 10W


Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.   EUR 9,60 excl. VAT: € 8.07 / $ 9.28

universal PCB

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 159 x 127 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA160, order no.. I-2766, price per unit: EUR 5,10 excl. VAT: € 4.29 / $ 4.93
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
