A High Performance loudspeaker system featuring the SEAS Exotic W8 Woofer and T35 Tweeter
Designed by Bjørn Borja and Håvard Sollien at the SEAS R&D laboratory.
The Loudspeaker System described in this document was designed in parallel with the development of the SEAS Exotic W8 woofer and T35 tweeter. The goal was to develop a two-way loudspeaker using drivers with matching sensitivity and distortion, that would provide a smooth and extended frequency response in a cabinet of moderate size. The sensitivity of this system is higher than many systems of comparable configuration and size, making it ideal for use with low power valve amplifiers.
This system uses the Exotic W8 woofer and T35 tweeter. A full description and technical speci- fications for these drivers available at the web- site
This system uses a vented cabinet with a net volume of 34 litres, and with a port tuning fre- quency of 40 Hz. It should be made from high quality MDF (medium density fibreboard). It is important that the cabinet sides are accu- rately cut, so they may be precisely joined to- gether. Internal bracing and damping of struc- tural resonances of the cabinet walls is also rec- ommended. Details are provided in the cabinet drawing.
