Visaton VOX 200 MHT

The 3 way bass reflex floorstanding VOX 200 is an original Visaton kit, that many of our customers would like to improve on. Visaton offers a solution.

VOX 200 MHT: like all other VOX types this speaker features a side mounted bass driver, this time the AL 200 with aluminium cone. Front mounted is the MHT 12 magnetostat, surrounded by two TI 100 midrange drivers with phase plug and titanium diaphragm.

Compared to the VOX 200 the circuit diagram has been changed in such a way that crossover alteration is not worthwhile anymore. Therefore, we offer two crossover variations, both available in kit form.

The first one is of typical, higher Visaton quality - but has to be assembled. The second one, "Ultimo" contains components of a quality you usually wouldn't find in off-the-shelf speakers costing EUR 10.000.
