Characteristics and sound properties

The FILOU is a D'Appolito configuration designed as a shelf-mounted speaker, but thanks to its excellent bass reproduction, can also be free-standing. It is based on the vented cabinet principle. The bass to mid-range is covered by two WS 13 BF 8 Ohm speakers. The extremely small moving mass coupled with the powerful driver and the rounded overall concept of this 13cm driver makes it possible to use it as a mid-range unit. At about 2,600 Hz, the two mid-bass units working in parallel are reduced and the DT 94 8 Ohm dome tweeter linked up. The FILOU is characterised mainly by its powerful and accurate bass reproduction and, due to the high efficiency level, lively, bubbly music reproduction. Its excellent sound distribution characteristics contribute to spatial clarity and good positioning with music. Thanks to the relatively high efficiency rating coupled with good power handling capabilities, louder volume levels can be easily achieved with no sound distortion. As long as the overall cabinetvolume is retained, the unit can be built slightly wider and shorter (e.g. width: 230 mm, depth: 300 mm).

Extract from Klang & Ton

"The ideal choice, if your shelves have the depth, is the Visaton Filou, which may have a modest height but still boasts a large cabinet volume and, as a result, produces impressive powerful bass, and yet still manages to generate exuberant high-range.“

Value for money: very good
