Audio designer Visaton Nimrod: modern 3-way acoustics in 70s design
The German company Visaton has released the Nimrod audio constructor, which received this name in honor of the commonwealth of English and German musicians. British composer Edward Elgar named one of his works after the English and German music publisher August Jaeger, nicknamed Nimrod by his friends.
The design of the Nimrod three-way speakers recalls the “golden age” of English monitor acoustics, which fell on the 70s of the last century. It is complemented by the latest advances from Visaton: the waveguide G 25 FFL fabric dome tweeter, the 4-inch B 100 midrange and the GF 200 woofer.
When assembled, the Nimrod is promised power up to 120 watts and a low frequency limit of 31 Hz. Drawings and instructions for making columns and stands are available on the Visaton website. The package includes three speakers for each speaker, a set of screws, crossovers, terminals and even two bags with damping polyester filler.
The UK Nimrod speaker kit will cost £915.
