Suzie "Q" with Scan-Speak Discovery H2606 / 920000 and 22W / 4534G00


Technical data

  • Sensitivity (2,83V/1m): 87,5 dB
  • HxWxD: 453 x 280 x 265 mm
  • Crossover frequency: 1800 Hz (LR4)
  • Frequency range (-3 dB): 49 - 19000 Hz
  • Closed-Box with high-pass capacitor (GHP), 22l


  • near wall or freely placed
  • Room size:
    • From 15m² ...
    • moderate volume requirements also suitable for very large rooms
  • Hometheater (Subwoofer recommended)


The purpose:

  • "Metrological balance", "pleasing design" and "easy replicability" get under one roof without my knowledge of things Baffle geometry , equipped …
  • ... with high quality, bargain drivers

The concept found: An 8 "/ 1" combination of Scan-Speak Discovery drivers, in a tendentially wide baffle.

The speaker was given a slight "sounding" without leaving the room of acoustical neutrality. A slight note of warmth accompanied with a decent dip around 20khz. A realy "good" sounding speaker, nothing missing in detail. Particularly impressive, the serenity with which the 22W / 4534G00, plays if he "only" has to work down to 45Hz!

  1. mmm… yes… all very well. Finished.
    Bass, yes ... enough.
    Root note ... yes, also very good, minimal emphasis on the root note.
    Middle ... JAAAAA, fine, sonorous, dissolving, relaxed, confident, sublime - round with corners and edges.
    Transition to the tweeter ... very gentle bundling and adjustment of the tonal balance. Unbroken, garnished with fine resolution. Vocal area very balanced, tends to be more relaxed, because super analytical.
    Heights: Fits, everything is there and very balanced. Nothing stands out and yet everything is there.
    The Suzie_Q is not highly sophisticated and difficult, rather straightforward and clear, but never leaves you in doubt that you may lack quality.
    Sounds like a good red wine tastes ... relaxed, confident and sublime.


  2. Happy Sunday 🙂

    I'm currently in the process of rebuilding these beautiful boxes and have a few questions. Can the chamfers on the right and left be smaller or do they have to be dimensioned exactly as in the drawing? How do I have to set up the speakers to achieve the most linear sound possible - i.e., does the tweeter have to be at ear level? I'm assuming the speaker should be angled towards the listener?!

    I'll be happy to leave a comment again when the construction is finished. I'm looking forward to it 🙂


    1. Hello Kimi
      The roundings are of little acoustic importance in this loudspeaker. You can make them smaller or leave them out as desired.
      Alignment with the listening position is recommended.
      The middle between the tweeter and mid-bass driver is the ideal ear height.

      Have fun with the speakers!

  3. So

    Now the two speakers are finished. To make it short :
    The construction folder is worth it! I am completely satisfied and the sound can develop well in my living room. The GHP principle works completely and has audible advantages. Being close to the wall is good for “Suzie Q”.
    From the crisp bass to the warm midrange and the beautiful treble, the box sounds quite balanced to my ears. They still have to get used to it, but they're already rocking. Buying the construction folder was absolutely worth it! Unfortunately, the prices for the components have now risen sharply...
    I still don't want a ready-made box anymore. DIY is a lot more fun and thanks to people like Mr. Heißmann you can make extremely good DIY speakers. A thoroughly positive experience 🙂
