This is a brand new speaker/filter combination enabling VBM-1, Pathfinder 10 users and Deacy Amplifier-style project builders to get their amps closer in tone to the real Deacy Amp.
The KAT DSP 6.5 TC has been developed primarily as a replacement for the Celestion G6 unit that is sadly no longer in production. It has an on-board filter network that tailors the frequency response to give the full bodied mids of the real Deacy but without the HF 'fizz' that seems to dominate most 6.5" twin-cone drivers.
A by-product of this development was the realisation that this unit could be dropped straight into both the Vox VBM-1 and Pathfinder 10 amplifiers giving immediate results. The Vox VBM-1 is a great amplifier, but, it is a little let-down by its stock speaker unit that tends to suck-out the precious mids and enhance the unwanted HF 'fizz'. The KAT DSP 6.5 TC is a straight swap-out with the stock VBM-1 unit with no soldering required to undertake the works. Just 11 screws and 6 minutes will have the works completed and the tone of the amplifier improved many-fold!
The KAT DSP 6.5 TC can also be used in your own Deacy Amplifier-style projects to give your amplifier that great Deacy 'honk'!
