It's an excellent small 2-way bass reflex shelf speaker. The bass reflex
tube is located on the rear side.
The bass driver is cut-off with an 18 dB crossover; there are, therefore,
two coils in the signal path to the bass driver requiring a low resistance.
Review in Klang+Ton 3/2008:
... "Connected to our incomparably dynamic SymAsym mono blocks, the Mimir
got cracking with such liveliness and punch that we were immediately reminded
of kindred Cheap Trick 230. The Seas speaker is always wide-awake, driving
on the vocals and pushing the drums. Also the bass reproduction is marvellous.
The gently dropping curve matches the character of this Norwegian contender.
Nothing get dolled up or covered up, the sound is always sonorous and lean,
but always truthful and probably adequately intense, even close to the walls.
Designers with seemingly insoluble bass problems in the listening room should
have a closer look at the Mimir. Especially drums, usually not the forte of
speakers of this kind and size, are very impressive. No matter what the drummer
does, the Mimir doesn't sound compressed, serves brisk bass drums, cracking
snare drums and swinging cymbals. Here, the speaker shows an interesting characteristic.
While the mid / bass driver performs mercilessly the tweeter strikes a softer
note. One should think that this won't work, but it does and it works well.
This combination provides on the one hand a mixture of softness and precision
and on the other spurt of speed and dynamics - almost a Rambo in black tie.
And let's not forget the beautiful three-dimensionality of the Mimir. The
stage realistic in size, width as well as depth. In any case this speaker
conveys in spite of the dynamics a pleasant sincerity. Vocals of any pitch
are reproduced realistically and without colouration. The gentle drop in tonality
at the tops and the bottom results in an absence of bang-hiss effect, avoiding
