Akerselva is a 3 way high-end floorstanding speaker with coaxial driver and four woofers.
In the kit the Seas Excel C18EN002/A coaxial driver is working in the mid and high frequency range. Four woofers of type Wavecor SW182BD01 in a closed cabinet provide a powerful and precise bass reproduction.
Akerselva has been developed by Daniel Gattig and Dennis Frank.
The crossover consists of a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter, a bandpass filter consisting of a high and low pass filter of second and third order with an voltage divider for the midrange and a second order low pass filter with parallel RCL circuit to reduce the impedance peak for the woofer.
Between 40 Hz and 18000 Hz, the frequency response of this loudspeaker is very linear on axis. The decay spectrum is nearly perfect. At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are lower than 0.6% above 500 Hz and mostly below 1% at 95 dB at 1 m .

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker - not available
The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils and copper foil coils for minimizing microphonic effects. - The current flow through the coil creates a magnetic field which sets the reel of wire in motion. This motion induces a voltage in the coil which adds itself to the signal. The stiffer the reel of wire is, the less the signal will be altered. All capacitors in series to the drivers are of type polypropylen (MKP). In series to the tweeter Clarity-Cap MR 630 V and CSA 630 V are employed.
Kit with high-end-crossover without cabinet, price per speaker - not available
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).
