Laniakea is a two way compact speaker.
Laniakea is a closed-cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Scan-Speak .
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a Scan-Speak D3404/552000 tweeter
- a Scan-Speak 18WU/8741T00 midrange / bass driver
The loudspeaker has been developed by Thomas Schmidt and Holger Barske.
The crossover consists of:
- a 2nd order high-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the mids-woofer.
The frequency response of this speaker is nearly linear.
The decay spectrum is perfect.
At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,3% above 300 Hz and doesn't exceed 0,8% at 95 dB at 1 m between 300 and 15000 Hz.

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 1040,00 excl. VAT: € 873.95 / $ 943.87
The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils and copper foil coils for minimizing microphonic effects. - The current flow through the coil creates a magnetic field which sets the reel of wire in motion. This motion induces a voltage in the coil which adds itself to the signal. The stiffer the reel of wire is, the less the signal will be altered. The capacitors for the Scan-Speak D3404/552000 are of type polypropylen (MKP) Clarity-Cap CMR 630 V.

If you want to use a valve amplifier with this speaker an impedance correction should be employed. In this case the component quality is less important; therefore, we offer only one kit (upon request higher quality components are available).
If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a universal PCB instead on wood

We recommend one board per kit (2 boards per speaker pair)
