38WE/8582T00 – 38 cm (15”) woofer - a new BIG brother is born.

Ellipticor logo


The Scanspeak 38WE/8582T00 Ellipticor is built on the same principles as its smaller siblings (18WE and 21WE), its key features are an elliptically shaped voice coil and magnet gap. Combined with a large powerful SD AirCirc magnet system the 38WE/8582T00 woofer has high sensitivity, unusually low distortion, and extremely fast transient response. This 15 inch woofer is not for the faint-hearted.

Key Features:

  • Elliptical voice coil / motor structure, minimal break-up modes.
  • SD AirCirc magnet system with 12 powerful neodymium magnets.
  • Linear suspension with coated multi-roll fabric surround.
  • Black anodized aluminium décor ring hides fixings.
  • Exceptionally low distortion.
  • High sensitivity - huge output.
  • Treated paper cone / dustcap.
