The Classic line consists of all the highly-regarded transducers that have been praised and loved by so many customers over the years. This family consists of a collection of star products developed over the years. They are speakers that fully live up to the heritage of the Scan-Speak brand. The longevity and strength of these designs has been proven through decades of sales and manufacturing.
The Symmetric Drive (SD) concept with copper in the magnet system was invented by Scan-Speak . The first version of the SD system was patented in 1972. High-quality magnet system design has thus been a key feature of Scan-Speak design since the company's inception.
Several of the Classic line speakers have been attempted to be copied by others. But the same quality and the same success as the original Scan-Speak design has never been duplicated.
The Classic series consists of speakers from 3/4" tweeters and all the way up to 10" woofers.
The D2008 and D2010 ¾" tweeters are among the highly praised designs in Classic. They have enjoyed success for more than 35 years.
The D2905/9000 tweeter kick-started a new era with a line of very high quality 1" tweeters, later in a known series of 9300, 9500 and 9700.
The 13M midrange is a unique midrange, famous for utilising a dust cap made of a tweeter textile dome.
The Classic 18W and 21W designs are also highly praised, and are used in some of the most exceptional high-end products. Some feature Kevlar cones; others have the innovative Carbon fibre paper cones, aside from their availability in classic hard paper and polypropylene.
The woofers - 18W and especially 21W and 25W - are known for a relatively shallow design, suitable where not much depth is available behind the drivers.
These designs all represent the heritage of Scan-Speak. They are products designed right from the beginning, and have proven to be long-term successes in the market. They were designed by excellent engineers, based on craftsmanship and technological excellence, and combined with an audiophile approach, where all designs are evaluated by the human ear.
