The design is centered around the ultra light moving mass sealed ribbon tweeter, that has unique speed, resolution and dynamic transient capability. This makes for a very transparent and highly detailed reproduction of the finest details in the program material.
The tweeter is crossed over to dynamic driver array at 3 KHz.
The MB-6 boasts a powerful lineup of 6, 4,5” carbon coned dynamic drivers, arranged in a power sharing line array.
The inner pair of the driver covers the midrange up to where the tweeter takes over and as you move out from the center the driver cowers more and more of the lower registries.
In the deepest bass the line array boast a total membrane area larger than a 12” driver, but still with the speed and agility of the smaller
drivers. This makes the MB-6 have outstanding capabilities even in the deepest bass.
The MB-6 is an incredible music performer with an impact an authority the will leave you breathless.
From the start, we were very focused on building on all the experiences and strengths obtained from designing the Raidho speakers. At the same time, we also had to be aware of the long heritage and the Nordic design tradition of the Scansonic brand. This time, the task also came with a budget and a desire to create the very best possible within financial limits.
It was clear to us from the very beginning, that some core techniques from the Raidho speakers would be of importance: The speakers had to be designed around a ribbon tweeter that works with at super lightweight diaphragm that is sealed around the edges to allow for a seamless transition to the midrange region.
Furthermore, they needed to be designed and developed with a speaker driver with a ridged, pistonic-type membrane.
WEIGHT LOSS FOR RESOLUTION TRANSIENTS AND SUPERB LEADING EDGES
The MB ribbon tweeter has a membrane with an extremely low mass.
It is formed by a Kapton-aluminum sandwich that is only 20 um thick, and the resulting mass is app. 0.03 g., which is approximately 50 times less than any conventional textile, ceramic, beryllium or diamond dome. The lower mass translates directly into higher resolution and less material coloration.
WEAVED CARBON CONES FOR STIFFNESS AND LOW COMPRESSION
For the MB-series, we have developed a ridged, dustcap free, carbon membrane. By carefully optimizing the shape and stiffness, we have succeeded in making a very quiet woofer that blends beautifully with the ribbon tweeter. The woofer has an overhung magnet system, with long linear stroke and excellent bass performance.
