Scanspeak Classic D2905/970000 Tweeter
Upgraded version of the excellent D2905/950000 with Symmetrical Drive.
High power handling of 225 W and frequency extension to above 30KHz. Hand coated textile dome and airflow optimised copper capped pole piece. The rear chamber features a resonance damping plug. The phase and distortion performance is still regarded as exceptional after 3 decades. A superb, sweet and highly detailed sounding tweeter. Found in many high end designs, this tweeter is a top choice for DIY / home-built high performance loudspeakers.
Symmetrical drive is a system incorporating copper caps / sleeve around the pole piece - this effectively forms a very low impedance shorted turn (called a Faraday ring) within the magnet circuit, the net result being that the tweeter voice coil impedance remains largely constant across it's operating frequency range, resulting in a more linear output with greater top end extension.
