Bifrost Cabinets from Taylor SpeakersThe Seas Excel Bifrost is a  top of the line 2-way speaker kit utilizing the T29CF-002 “Crescendo” Tweeters and W18NX-001 7” Woofers. These drivers represent the highest end offerings from Seas of Norway. Detailed information on this kit design can be found on the Seas website.

The T29CF-002, known as the “Crescendo”, is the flagship tweeter in the Seas Excel lineup. This Ultra High End 29mm soft dome tweeter employs a wide SONOMEX surround and high efficiency HEXADYM magnet system. Building on the success of the famous “Millennium” tweeter, Seas has once again raised the bar with the “Crescendo”. In addition to world class performance, the Nextel painted machined aluminum face plate with chrome plated brass center ring makes this one of the most visually appealing tweeters we know of.

The W18NX-001 is the 7” paper cone mid/bass woofer of the Seas Excel line. A Nextel coating is applied to the front side of the cone to provide added stiffness, while a special coating is also applied to the rear of the cone to reduce cone resonances. With such features as Adaptive Surround, copper clad aluminum voice coil, and heavy copper rings mounted both above and below the T-shaped pole piece, this driver is defined by its excellent transient response and very low distortion. The chrome plated solid copper phase plug and Nextel coated cone are a perfect cosmetic match to the “Crescendo” tweeter.

We are offering the Bifrost kit with assembled premium crossovers. The low pass circuit uses Goertz Copper Foil 14awg inductors in series with the woofer. The high pass circuit uses a Mundorf Supreme Silver/Oil  capacitor in series with the tweeter. This component selection was carefully chosen to best match the drivers and design of  this system. High quality resistors, caps and air core inductors are used in the remaining circuits. All Bifrost crossovers come assembled on a Matrix Double circuit board and are bi-wire/bi-amp capable. Alternate series capacitors for the tweeter (high pass) circuit are available on the drop down menu above.

If you are interested in high quality custom cabinets for this design, Madisound would like to recommend Lee Taylor & Co. Contact Lee to discuss veneer options and pricing. We feel his cabinets for this design look stunning, are very well constructed, and attractively priced. Floor standing tower and stand mount monitor versions are available.

Enclosure design:

The woofer T/S parameters are found in the datasheet. This data was entered into the driver editor in the LspCAD software from IJdata. Using the “Table Lookup Optimizer” with 0.3ohms entered as added series resistance (dc resistance of inductor in series with the woofer) the QB3 alignment suggests a box volume of about 14 liters. We have instead chosen to make the box a bit larger than this and aim for an EBS alignment. The simulation shows the frequency response in a cabinet volume of 18 liters, with a port tuning at 42 Hz.


The measurements are done in a free-field anechoic chamber at 1 meter on tweeter axis with an input voltage of 2.83 volts.

The green curve shows the system response with the tweeter connected with reversed polarity. The cancellation confirms that the drivers are in phase around the crossover region.
The system sensitivity is considerably lower then what is found in the two driver’s datasheets. This is intentional, and necessary to compensate for the so called “baffle step / spreading loss”.  For further information see:
Average sensitivity is 84dB SPL @ 1 meter with an input voltage of 2.83 volts. The measured axial frequency response variation is +/- 2dB between 71 Hz and 22 kHz. Minimum impedance is 7.5 ohm at 180 Hz.

The horizontal off-axis plots show a smooth response for the axial, as well as 20 and 40 degree angles.  

Distortion at 90 dB SPL / 1 meter. Blue: 2nd harmonic - Red: 3rd harmonic.

High quality components results in a system with low distortion. 

For users with simulation tools that wish to make adjustments to the crossover, or use the data for other purposes, we have made the raw driver response in the Bifrost cabinet available for download here.
