If you love music CNO have good price for 15year....

Just wanted to add that the CNO version has a higher x-over frequency. It helps the tweeter with it's distortion levels at lower frequencies... on the other hand, the increased x-over frequency approaches the woofer's break-up frequency... it's a tough trade.

A listening test between the CNO and the original Bifrost as the drivers are the same and the x-over parts are relatively inexpensive except for the largest inductor which can be expensive depending on what type you choose.

PS: In my previous post I might have been too harsh on the Bifrost's woofer, I really meant to say it was a little better but in my opinion not enough to justify the price.

hi peter , yes this driver are very good....
I'm on scanspeak side from 20year ,I have ellam, the troels xover sound fantastic !!!!(2300hz)

Hi nicoch46,
strange that on Troel's site he has this graph showing a much higher X-over point then 2300hz:

Further in his page he shows this graph:

His words:"Point of crossover is 2800 Hz."

What am I missing?

nicoch58 8th March 2008 05:54 PM

eheh,sorry 2300hz are for my speaker Ellam ,Cno are 2800hz!!

not too much difference but I have 5,25" driver, CNO are 6,5"but don't worry troels know what do!

Some more pictures.

Furthermore some comments on the cost. At a certain level the relation between price and performance is not justified anymore. And the discussions are just a matter of taste. I also bought these units for the looks. And I'm a happy man with this system.
Everybody has to make out for themselfes if they want to spend the money for these units.
