Custom Scan Speak, ATC and Acoustic Elegance floorstander

We love custom projects! On the drawing board is a floorstander based around the ATC midrange dome. Includes a Scan Speak dome tweeter with a purpose built waveguide and a pair of Acoustic Elegance woofers. This will be a solid enclosure in piano gloss black and fully active.

Scan-Speak D2608/91300 1" dome tweeter

 This is a tweeter with an attractive price and good performance. This project will feature a waveguide designed specifically for this tweeter by Joe Rasmussen of JLTI 


What you may not appreciate from the photo is that it uses a very high quality plastic known as Acetyl Homopolymer.  More about the waveguide on DIY Audio.

The midrange driver for this project was sourced second hand. It is a well regarded ATC midrange dome. The magnet on this is larger than many woofers!

 The woofer is a 10" Acoustic Elegance PB10.

This speaker will be active.

Red Spade Audio 8 Channel Linear Phase DSP speaker and room correction coming soon

This is a quick heads up about an exciting product we are introducing in the near future. Quite a number of our PSE-144 customers are running DEQX and wrestling with the limitation of only being able to set up a 3 way system. Ideally a system that features our point source horn would include woofers and a sub - this means a 4 way system. It's a serious investment to buy two DEQX units. We are offering a new DSP system as an alternative. It will work as a stand alone device like DEQX but it will also mean any of our speakers can be available in an active version. We expect to have the first working prototype in a few months.
