Default thor vs odin

I am deliberating between the seas thor or odin. Anyone who has heard both I would appreciate a comparison. Thanks

I would be interested in this too

and not to try to hijack your thread but could we also add the north creek Rhythm into the comparison

and have you considered this speaker too? if so what was the deciding factor to go with the seas kits instead?

robert, I have not heard the speaker you spoke of. I currently have seas speakers. Mine are essentially 1/2 of the old Odin, they are a MT and the odins are MTM. I am very pleased with them. They put the 'clear' in clarity. I have been very pleased with my speakers and was wanting to upgrade, though I am not sure going to a MTM versus the MT is an upgrade. I have always been fascinated by TL speakers and therefore I am interested in the Thor more so than the Odin. Mike

Not that ive heard either, but the w15cy001 sounds fantastic in my system. Ive seen loadsa threads like this without much input so I will add in that $0.02 if it helps.

I live in a small town and therefore I am the only one I know of with a seas speaker...no one I know has even heard of seas. I dont have much hope of hearing an odin or thor out here in crop dusting country. Now if I was interested in pioneer or bose, well everyone here thinks bose is the best....doubtful if I will get to hear one so I was hoping to get a response here.

yeah I don't know anyone who's heard any of these-looks like we'll just have to trust all the good reviews and hope we aren't disapointed

I can't afford an orion so I'm looking at the cheaper options and so far it's looking like thor-some others I'm considering are the north creek rhythms and GR research diluceo-but I think the TL bass of the thor will integrate better with my IB sub and the qaulity is more than eqaul to any commercial design I could afford

The Thor TL is a Seas speaker - their newest "kit" speaker, MTM, transmission line. A few members of the board have built one before.

Default SEAS KITS - good news to you

Hi,

Seas is just about to release their new kit on their webiste (www.seas.no)

It is a 3 way system , and according to them it is their best diy speaker so far... by a good margin.

I haven't listened to an all SEAS speaker system so far, but all the loudspeakers I listened to that had a Seas Excell midrange sounded very good (the amphion krypton was excellent when partenered with a lidenmann cd player and the rogue audio power amp -the huge one-) : neutral, but not lean, with a very nice tecture and richness to the sound -without being warm- , with a great ease, and with a very good sense of rythm....

I am sure that any seas kits will be far better than the bose stuff your mates probably have at home....
And now that I remember, I think there is a Jamo 3 way loudspeaker with a Seas Excell midrange. If you manage to listen to it in your town you my get a rough idea of what a seas midrange will do for you... (I have never listened to the Jamos, so I am not sure of the magic that its crossover may have, but you will loose nothing for trying it out...)


Good luck!

There is a British company named Wilmslow audio that sells Seas kits and drivers as long as I can remember. They are very good people and I think they will be happy to inform you.
The url is http://www.wilmslow-audio.co.uk and they are normally happy to answer emails
