Summary

The Scan-Speak Discovery H2606 / 920000 is a fine tweeter, which, when used wisely, leaves practically nothing to be desired. Without hesitation, it can be used from 1,5kHz, even with high level requirements. Depending on the application possibly even deeper.

Due the somewhat special dispersion this tweeter asks for a mindfull connection to te midwoofer.

The H2606 is used in the kit Suzy-Q

Scan_Speak_D3004_660000_Winkel

The amplitude response of the Scan-Speak D3004 / 660000 Illuminator is extremely broadband. Full level already from 600 Hertz.

From 600Hz - 30kHz + -1,5dB linear with a broadband peak (+ 2dB) from 1,5kHz - 6kHz. The average efficiency is 92dB / 2,83V.

The omnidirectional behavior is very good. Under 30 ° 20kHz are reached with practically full level. The resonance frequency is extremely low with 470Hz and gives hope for a very low separability to the TMT / MT. The 1,5kHz impedance response shows a minimal disturbance, which is also reflected in the amplitude response by a harmonic "level".

The Scan-Speak D3004 / 660000 Illuminator has extremely low harmonic distortion.

K3 remains below 500% at all measured levels already starting at 0,3 Herz, from 1kHz <0,1% and runs largely independent of the excitation signal.

K2 increases evenly with the level, and runs at a very low level.

Clinker components of higher order are negligible.

Summary


The Scan-Speak D3004 / 660000 Illuminator is an outstanding tweeter in the sum of its features. Very broadband use, extremely low distortion and with very good omnidirectional behavior.

There was a considerable design effort to create an extraordinary tweeter. The Air-Circ Magnet System (6 Circular Neodymium Magnets) seems to work very effectively.

Only the not absolutely linear amplitude response on the axis clouds the otherwise impeccable impression minimal. By skillful wiring and / or selection of the baffle can still achieve a virtually perfectly linear frequency response.

Also noteworthy is the noble-looking exterior of the tweeter. The aluminum front panel and the seemingly futuristic magnet system make your heart beat faster, and in the sense of psychoacoustics, the driver will probably (even) sound even better ())

In order to meet the stated price of UVP 180 €, there are features that set the driver apart from others. In my opinion, these are certainly given with the Scan-Speak D3004 / 660000 Illuminator and the driver is probably his Price-worthy!
