Description

Scan-Speak 4.5" Illuminator Midrange12MU/4731T-00 in 4 ohm  

The Illuminator woofers are based on compact under-hung motor systems with large neodymium ring magnets. The patent pending motor offers a very long linear excursion together with a very high force factor. The top plate is shaped to “guide” the backside airflow around the motor and with the very open cast aluminum chassis design the driver is virtually free from compression.

The under-hung voice coil is precision wound with CCAW ribbon wire on a titanium bobbin for a low loss yet high power handling design. The vented pole piece has contoured openings to eliminate any hint of turbulence noise. The uniquely shaped top plate and open air frame ensure there is virtually no dynamic compression caused by restriction of the diaphragm back wave.

  • Neodymium magnet
  • Under hung motor system
  • One piece cone and dust cap, full cone technology
  • Very Wide Frequency Response 100-10KHz
  • Patented Symmetrical Drive (SD-3)
  • Low-loss Linear Suspension
  • Foam surround
  • High Output 90dB @ 2,83V

Madisound recommends: a 2 liter sealed enclosure, loosely filled with wool or acousta-stuf. Your F3 in this enclosure is 185 to 200Hz, depending on the amount of stuffing.

4.5" Illuminator Exceptional Midrange
I replaced the midrange driver in my front main speaker and center speaker with this driver. The mains were using a Vifa driver and the center was a McIntosh driver. The results have been exceptional. I have worked with thousands of sound systems and find this to be one of the best midrange drivers I have ever heard. They are right up there with the dome drivers in ATC professional monitors.

I had a neighbor over to watch a movie last week and she could not believe how clear the sound was.

The clarity of these drivers along with their smooth frequency response has really upgraded the sound of my system dramatically. I could not be happier with this investment.
