Here's a quick round up of some more newly released drive units from SB Acoustics. SB have an uncanny knack of seeing gaps in the market then manufacturing drive units to fulfill those needs with well considered designs of excellent engineering at high value price points.
We keep all of these new models in UK stock for immediate dispatch:
After over 40 years of continuous manufacture Scanspeak has discontinued the Classic D2008/851100 and D2010/851100 tweeters. This popular pair of drive units have been a staple feature in so many historic designs across the decades from many manufacturers; they are now replaced by updated models using modern materials and manufacturing processes.
New updated versions:
We already have both models in UK stock - please click on the images for full details.
We've had to wait a good while for this one but boy was it worth it. If you think that multiple drive units are required for true full range reproduction you're in for a surprise - the performance of the SB20FRPC30-8 at this price point is epic. A special mention here for the bass response which is warm, full & fast - far removed from the majority of thin sounding full range units regardless of cost.
This is a great new drive unit from SB Acoustics and all credit to them for getting this so right. An absolute bargain.

Suits: ATC SCM12, SCM7a (early), SCM35, SCM25a, Hafler TRM6, Royd RR2, Royd RR3, Miller & Kreisel (various models). This is the long awaited replacement for the highly respected D26NC15-06 and D26NC55-06.
The D19TD-05-08 is possibly the most popular 19mm soft dome of all time. Found in a huge amount of respected and award winning models from manufacturers such as Mission, Rogers, Heybrook, JPW AP2 and AP3, Monitor Audio and countless others, this relatively inexpensive tweeter is a very capable performer hence its long term popularity from the 1980s onwards. Directly replaces SEAS 19TFF1 / H0737-08; also a fine replacement for the Celestion HF2000 & HF2001 found in various Ditton models.
We have extended our range of Mundorf Ecap AC capacitors and now stock various previously unavailable values. These have been chosen specifically as replacements for old dried up Elcap / Alcap capacitors as found in a huge number of vintage loudspeakers. The majority of these new capacitors are smooth foil low loss types offering a significant upgrade over the original components.
SB Acoustics drive units offer very fine value and there are many excellent performers within their extensive range.
We now supply their entire selection of tweeters & mids including the high end Satori models, we have most in UK stock ready for immediate dispatch including the new transmission line loaded soft midrange dome MD60N-6:
We are pleased to announce the arrival of the complete collection of full range (or wide band) drive units form SB Acoustics. These small drive units offer excellent value and are highly adaptable making them ideal for custom build sound bars, desktop speakers, sound reinforcement and discrete in-car installations.
Obviously small drivers like this (the SB36WBAC21-8 pictured above is just 1 inch !) are not going to fill a large room with bass but what they do they do so well and each of them has a smooth extended frequency response.
There are 4 models in the range with 3 cone sizes, more details can be found by clicking the links below:
We now have good stock of our exclusive 4 ohm 50 watt L-pad attenuators. These top quality components are specified / manufactured exclusively for Willys-Hifi Ltd and are not available elsewhere. Click on the image below for full details:
L-Pad attenuators are used to adjust the output levels of speakers somewhat like a volume control. The basic internal configuration of an L-pad is a ganged network of two variable power resistors, one in series with the speaker and the other in parallel thus providing a constant impedance regardless of their setting; this allows fine tuning and balancing of multiple unit systems. As the impedance remains constant, the crossover is unaffected.
Though primarily associated with midrange and treble drivers, the higher powered L-Pads can be used to control low frequency drivers; many of our customers use these in guitar amplifiers.
We are pleased to announce that we are now an authorised distributor for SB Acoustics in the UK. We will be adding all of their excellent drive units to our website over the coming weeks.
The entire range of SB Acoustics tweeters including the high-end Satori range are already available and can be viewed by clicking HERE.
The image above is of the new Satori TW29TXN-B, this groundbreaking tweeter features a unique TeXtreme® carbon fibre composite dome giving an extraordinary wide and level response with excellent off axis dispersion.
