We have taken the unprecedented step of investing heavily with top manufacturer Intertechnik Audyn and can now offer every value of the following popular 3% tolerance air core inductor ranges direct from our UK stock:
We have increased our stocked range of Monacor drive units. These carefully chosen speakers offer an excellent price to performance ratio and cover a wide range of replacement and general purpose requirements. For full details of the individual units please click on the images or underlined titles.
Like it's smaller brother (the excellent SPH-135KEP), this drive unit features a Kevlar cone, an alloy phase plug & a rigid die-cast basket. The frequency response is very smooth and extended; it makes an ideal replacement for many B&W 6½" bass units.
Another cracking drive unit from Monacor, the SPH-165CP is essentially a scaled up version of the SPH-135C. Featuring a woven carbon fibre cone, fully vented alloy chassis and huge magnet, this long throw woofer is capable of very good bass extension in smaller enclosures; a true output to 30Hz can be realised from cabinets of just 18 litres.
This long throw mid woofer has a standard 180mm / 6½" circular chassis and is a good replacement for many main stream drive units. Features include a damped polypropylene cone, high air flow chassis and large magnet with vented pole piece. The performance and build quality are both very high and represent good value at this price point. This unit is available in 2 other sizes: the 5 inch SPH-5M and the larger 8 inch SPH-8M.

A range of high performance drive units that were originally designed and manufactured in Denmark by the legendary Vifa company. These highly popular drive units were used in many successful 1980/90s commercial models before Vifa were absorbed into the far eastern Tymphany group.
A new production of these drive units is now manufactured by Scanspeak in Denmark using the original Vifa tooling and procedures.

One of the smoothest sounding 5" drivers ever produced. This long term favourite was first manufactured in the 1980s and remains a benchmark performer with an unusually smooth usable output to over 7 kHz:
We now stock a chosen selection of binding posts, banana plugs and terminal blocks from Monacor, Germany. These all feature impressive build quality and represent excellent value for money; these will give your project a very professional finish.
Here's a couple of highlights:
Monacor BP-520G jumbo sized binding posts:
The BP-520G extra large binding posts feature gold plated brass bodies with excellent machining - these are huge binding posts.
Monacor BP-530G long stem binding posts:
The BP-530G are long stem binding posts designed for cabinets with walls upto 27mm thickness. Gold plated brass.
Engineering drawings and high resolution images can be found on the individual product pages.
The new 15W/8534T00 fills a long lasting gap in the Scanspeak Classic Range. This Midwoofer is based on the design principles of the highly revered 18W/8545 continuing the tradition with a slimline aluminium chassis, symmetrical drive motor system, low loss linear rubber suspension and is updated with a brand new cone material called Phenomax. The Phenomax cone is comprised of 5 thin film layers including Kevlar and carbon fibre; each layer has different mechanical properties that combine to give the ideal balance of rigidity and internal damping.
This is going to be a very popular drive unit - taking orders now, available early March.

The Revelator Range, Scanspeak's most extensive line, has got a new baby: the D2104/712000, a 20 mm (¾”) soft dome tweeter. This unit is a welcome addition to the range and carries over the existing technology found in the larger D2904/7100 siblings. Features include a large neodymium ring magnet system with symmetrical drive, a non-resonant rear chamber, a large roll-surround and a precision machined anodized aluminium faceplate. This smaller tweeter offers improved directivity and an extended frequency response to above 40 kHz.

By popular request we now stock the genuine Morel repair kit for the high-end TSCT 1104 and TSCT 1044 Supreme range tweeters. This replacement dome / voice coil assembly is very easy to fit and will restore the correct manufacturers performance. This is a very cost effective repair and is far cheaper than replacing the complete tweeter assembly.
We now hold good stock of the complete range of Intertechnik cascadable crossover network PCBs. This unique series of modular boards is available in 3 size ranges and 4 network derivatives that can be intermixed allowing ultimate design flexibility. They can be cascaded to suit your desired crossover alignment / drive unit complement. An example schematic is shown below:
In the main example above, the 2 way board is the motherboard; adding the low pass and high pass modular boards forms a comprehensive 3 way design with much scope for experimentation. This is just one illustration, these boards are highly adaptable and can be cascaded to suit literally any design.

These precison wound high - end inductors are available in a wide range of values of between 0.15mh - 15.0mH 1% tolerance and 3 wire gauges: 0.5mm x7, 0.6mm x7 and 0.8mm x7.
The thermally bonded Litz wire is configured as a concentric, hexagonally wound conductor consisting of 7 individually insulated high purity (99.99%) OFC strands. These air core inductors have low DCR resistance, high quality factor, very low skin effect, no saturation distortion, no hysteresis distortion, vibration / microphony immunity, very low self capacitance and a constant inductance characteristic regardless of current and load changes.
A perfect no compromise choice for the very highest fidelity loudspeakers.
Made in Germany by the long established and highly respected manufacturer Intertechnik / Audyn.
Traditional (round) drive units are relatively easy to produce but come with many inherent issues such as ringing (bell modes), break up, high Q peaks and poor edge termination. To counter these problems Scanspeak started the Ellipse project under the guidance of the late great designer Birger Jørgensen, sadly Birger passed away before seeing the completed drive units. The Ellipse project was completed and brought to production by Dennis Hansen and Simon Møller Nielsen under the trade name 'Ellipticor'.
The design aim of the elliptical motor system is to break any symmetry within the voice coil former and provide the cone with a non symmetrical driving force so that bell modes and other distortions cannot propagate. Machining and building the elliptical parts for the motor system provided many R&D and engineering challenges that Scanspeak have overcome with custom built tooling and new assembly techniques.
The Ellipticor drive units are ground breaking products that are extremely well behaved, broad banded and truly represent the state of the art. You can read custom loudspeaker design supremo Troels Gravesens comments on the Ellipticor units here.
