Default Anyone tried ScanSpeak Illuminator Beryllium Dome Tweeters? Impressions please

As the next step of my project I’d like to buy a new set of tweeters to replace my GS10’s. The Frogs have been great but I’m just looking for something new.

I know GreatLaBrowski has ScanSpeak Illuminator D3004/6040-10 Beryllium Dome Tweeters and chose to stick with them after trying out a bunch of other tweeters.

For whatever reason these tweeters have really intrigued me and I’m strongly considering purchasing a set for myself.

I’m wondering if anyone else has tried them out, and if so what their impressions (either positive or negative) were.

Thanks in advance for opinions on these tweeters.

Thanks in advance for opinions on these tweeters.

I'm running a pair in my Truck A-Pillars on-axis. I really like these tweets. It takes awhile to brake them in, but after that, they were really easy to tune to a Speaker Curve and are smooth and detailed. I found that the lowest I could cross them at was 2800(HP/LR24), anything lower and they would sound funky when turning up the volume. My Mosconi Amp are running them and my midranges, puts out 105 Watts per channel.

I've had the GB10's in the A-Pillar, and I like them, but the lowest I could get them to play decent at loud volume was crossed 3200(HP/24LR)

I'm really looking for a tweet that can play at loud volume crossed at 2000(HP/24LR), and when I find one, I'm gonna buy it... till then I'm happy with the Scans d3004-6040-00

Mine replaced GB15's and I love them. They're in the dash corners, crossed at 2200 Hz 24dB LR. I have the D3004/6040-00.

There was absolutely nothing wrong with the GB15's, and I consider it a lateral change. There's just something about them that I prefer. They're just as smooth as the GB's, but a hair more detailed.

James, are you running the Scans d3004-6040-00, or the Scans Scans d3004-6040-10. I think the -10 will play lower than the -00 due to the cone on the backside.....


ooopsss.... sorry, just seen in your post your have the D3004/6040-00... where is the delete post button.....

Nice to see that both of you preferred these to your frogs, even if they were only marginally better.

I think I’m going to try the deeper (-10 ) version out for myself soon. If I like them I think I’ll glass them into my door triangles and get rid of my gs10 were are in the German aluminum pods.

I have them and absolutely love them. I run them on axis in the a-pillar and paired with the 18wuís in the door. I canít remember exactly but there crossed fairly low, I think around 2200hz. They are definitely my favorite small format tweeter but I havenít heard the frogs.
