Nimrod is a three way compact speaker.
Nimrod is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Visaton .
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Visaton G 25 FFL 8 Ohm mit Waveguide WG 148 R tweeter
- a Visaton B 100 6 Ohm mids driver
- a Visaton GF 200 2 x 4 Ohm woofer
The loudspeaker has been developed by Sebastian Bayer and Oliver Kreuer.
The crossover consists of:
- a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a band pass consisting of a 3rd order high pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) and a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the mids-woofer.
- a 3rd order low-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the woofer.
The frequency response of this speaker is nearly linear.
The decay spectrum is nearly perfect.
At medium volume, i.e. 90 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,5% above 200 Hz.

The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils on important parts of the crossover 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. The capacitors for the Visaton G 25 FFL 8 Ohm mit Waveguide WG 148 R are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity Cap ESA and Mundorf EVO.

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).
Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board. EUR 11,40 excl. VAT: € 9.58 / $ 10.15
If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a universal PCB instead on wood
PCB 220x155 mm, order no. I-8805002, price per unit: EUR 11,80 excl. VAT: € 9.92 / $ 10.51
We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
