What's going on with scanspeak

Sun Apr 07, 2013 2:48 pm

Hey now.

These scanspeak discovery woofers, are they anything special? Part of me thinks "alriiiggghhhttt like the price point." then another part of me thinks "is this the decline of scanspeak? Are they done making drivers like the revelator? Did that many people leave Scan Speak (SB acoustics, Wavecore etc) or are they just trying to compete with the Seas Prestige and SB Acoustics?"

Full range drivers are coming back. I ran Audio Nirvana and still to this day love them to death. There is a huge market for point source. From what I am told Mark Audio is amazing. I'm not here to debate point source vs multy way. I am simply asking where is Scanspeak on this? I would love to see something that rivals the old rca's.

I just feel like they are sitting back and watching all these manufacturers release new drivers- while scanspeak crosses their fingers and says "please dont be better than the revelator"

These are drivers that have a long-term status with SS, and some were improved designs lost when Vifa split, so they created something better at a lower price point.
