Has anyone tried either of these and can give some insight on whether the extra cost of the Scans is worth it? The FR on the SB29 seems to be a bit flatter, but I'd like to hear from anyone that has real world experience with them. Thanks

which version of the sb? ring radiator or dome?
Should have answered "yes" lol

Both are good. Scan is better but the sb is no slouch by any means

What's better about the scan? I know there's more to a speaker than frequency response, but the SB looks better in that respect

This tweeter measures exceptionally well, Better than that ring dome... even the Satori Ring Dome isn’t that great....


This tweeter measures almost as good as anything Jeff Bagby has tested, used at any price... including anything Scan makes. The tweeters Scan made twenty years ago are better than what they make now, 9500, 9900.

SB26STAC-C000-4 :: SB Acoustics

This has been tested by a reliable source for SB Acoustics and it’s the cream of the crop, once it’s available to the public it’s what I’d be looking at. SB Acoustics :: SB29BAC-C000-4

Your talking about a large format tweeter with a brick or a magnet. OP is looking for something, you know... normal

The Scans sound great and look better IMHO.

Do the SB29 even come with grills?
If you want the SB29 with grills and mounting rings, you can buy this, its the same driver by NVX if it ever comes back in stock.

I noticed those, but couldn't find them in stock anywhere. I also don't need the mounting rings tbh. Though if I had the option I would like a grille. But it's definitely not a deal breaker.

Those are really nice, but a little too big for my application.

I'm curious to see how the SB tweeters hold up against the other ones once you get them in

Yeah he's save me alot of time and money he built things that would impress the audience at high end audio exibitions, once bite by the audio bug

I look into home audio run active in the room as test before testing in the car

I saves alot of time aswell and you get a easy enviorment to understand the protential you can get a car as opposed to continuously removing and install midbasses

I'll give a subjective update in few days on the sb's
