Default Scan Mini Monitor

I have been considering this driver for a small (6 liter ?) sealed mini monitor for a while. Looks like it would lend itself very well for an acoustic suspension design down to about 65Hz but I have found very little on line in the way of projects for this particular driver. Anyone have any experience with it?

Thanks
Matthew

I don't have experience to built with it but i've heard some speakers with this woofer and have been pretty impressed with the low end and mid. Just don't expect them to sound like a 15".

All I can say is I'm listening to the slightly bigger and uncoated siblings and I am in heaven as I type this.

Best,

Erik

Why force it low and muddle up all that wonderful midrange with near excursion limits to 65Hz.......go subwoofer with a SEAS LROY!

Also,the Seas small profile, deep chamber tweets are funky. I mean, the response is not very smooth. I'd rather get the smaller chamber and cross higher, especially with those 5"-ish Scanspeaks.

Not forcing the issue. I posted the excursion graph to show max power handing as modeled. Actually I do plan on utilizing these satellites with a sub crossed around 50-80Hz with a Mini DSP HD and another amp channel. The model for that is shown below and looks really good. At the same power level the Scan is still under the linear excursion rating and nowhere near the limit.

Also, I like the small form factor of the Scan 6020 but I am also considering these 2 tweeters, although the 6600 is at the upper limit of my budget.

I know the uncoated version of these drivers from my incarnation of the AOS Studio 24 and the PrunuScan. They are very good in the midrange, and are super easy when it comes to filter design (can do a first order filter easily). Deep and strong bass is not their strength, and I found they sound better with a high pass filter to remove the deep bass, and add a dedicated subwoofer.

If you're going with a first order filter (which I recommend!), doing the same for the tweeter would be a natural choice. So you'd need a tweeter with a lowish resonance frequency, and a sufficiently flat roll off at (and below) the x-over frequency. I really like the ScanSpeak tweeters...

Scanspeak's small form factor ring radiators and Be tweeters are more usable than their soft domes.
