ScanBySide 2 is a three way floorstanding speaker. ScanBySide II provides a flat frequency response from below 30 to above 40 000 Hz, low distortion and excellent decay spectrum.
ScanBySide 2 is a closed-cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of SB Acoustics and Scan Speak.
The kit is delivered with the following drivers:
- a SB Acoustics SB29BAC-C000-4 tweeter
- a SB Acoustics SB17NBAC35-4 mids driver
- a Scan Speak 26W/4534G00 woofer
The loudspeaker has been developed by Bernd Timmermanns.
The crossover consists of:
- a 3rd order high-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter.
- a band pass consisting of a 2nd order high pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) and a 3rd order low-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the mids-woofer.
- a 2nd order low-pass filter (12 dB per octave slope) for the woofer.
The frequency response of this speaker is perfectly linear.
The decay spectrum as shown in the waterfall diagram is exemplary, free of any disturbing resonance.
At medium volume, i.e. 90 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are below 0,3% above 200 Hz.

The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils on important parts of the crossover 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 SB Acoustics SB29BAC-C000-4 are of type polypropylen Mundorf MCAP EVO Silver Gold Oil.

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).
Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board. EUR 14,76 excl. VAT: € 12.40 / $ 14.25
If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 240 x 165 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA240, order no.. I-2767, price per unit: EUR 7,41 excl. VAT: € 6.23 / $ 7.15
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
