Right, we have got 6 of these 'Spektre' scoops, And if I'm honest. We know nothing about them. I was just wondering if anyone could shed any light on them? This seemed like the most sensible place to ask I guess...

Designed and built in Birmingham for Spectre Sound System (or Spectre Media) to house two PD.1850's. Around 200 cabinets were made, 40 or so were shipped to Australia for events Spectre did out there. They were processed with EV DX38's and were driven with racks and racks of ex SSE Crest P7001's and P8001's. Mid/hi cabinets for the system (also known as 'happy dogs' or something crazy like that!) were designed by Mark at Fane (when they were in Leeds).
 
I used to own 41 of these (not sure where the odd one came from!); they were powered with Crown VZ3600 amps, one box per channel so each driver was seeing just under 800W. Crazy boxes, not too heavy due to the fact that they were made from 'lightweight' 18mm ply LOL.
 
Maximum we took out was eight - and that was too much, way too much! The boxes don't like VZ5000's for some reason, they would never play right with them, only the VZ3600's made them sing.
 
I still have two here....
 
Pics.... H-Town (Handsworth) Park, Birmingham. Aug 2007.
 
From the front... (Mid/Hi boxes in these pics are ex SSE HB3)
 
 
And finally.... four of them sitting under 6 stacks of EAW KF850/SB850.... That's Johnny Clark soundchecking on stage there... Luciano was on the same bill.. and Etana...

In a couple of pic's in this forum of Shortman's workshop I see simillar cab's in the background.
Have to agree with Mykey, they are not proper scoop's but more like a hybrid.

Quite right on that one!

We had originally planned on loading them with 186's, but now were not so sure. How much of a difference is it likely to make? Have you tried this Paulie?

And what are they then Mikey, as I said, we have no idea so any input is welcome. It is nice to know there is a bit of history behind them. We diff want to buy another 6 but by the sounds of it we are not going to need them!

Here you have very small mouth oppening compared to the throat. Transmission line have the almost the same width throughout "horn"path.

Well, my take on them is that they are two miniscoops joined together, both horn paths join in the middle. If you were to cut one in half and add a couple bottom panels you would indeed have a pair of 'mini' mini scoops. I sold six of mine to a guy in Leicester you did just that, but he cut just below the baffle board on one side, the smaller half was binned and the larger half had a base board added - job done.
 
Regarding chamber etc, the boxes have a medium sized chamber, they have a baffle board which only extends down, say, to 60% of the chamber height. The horn path is shaped inside with corner panels etc, but from memory (I'll have to get my tape measure out) there is negative expansion. There is absolutely no bracing in the boxes at all. I can see why they have been labelled as 'double scoops' because that's what i used to call them..... but the term 'front loaded dual 18" subs" was added later as it sounded more 'rider friendly'. To reinterate, we never had to chuck crazy power at them, one channel of a VZ3600 was sufficient, and we were never asked to turn the bass up... only ever to turn it down!
 
As I said previously, I have two boxes here still, and four PD.1851's...... Lamp The chamber size will work with the drivers..... hmmmmm....

So lifting cabs with 2x PD1850s, is hello Mr Hernia.

I am planing to change my bass boxes soon which is super scoop design. I love them alot cause when i strung up to play the alcohol in the bar has to be take down from the shelf Thumbs Up. But it is time for a change because no one in Jamaica uses scoop anymore, The design they use mostly today are two drivers in one cabinet facing down not sure where that design came from because i live in jamaica and has never seen them not even on the internet. But its a waist of resources because a scoop with one good driver plays heavier than one of them ANYDAY. I love scoops and i am looking for a design even if its similar or identical to the ones that are discuss here, That make me sound like scoops and look like those double boxes that are now used in Jamaica today. I was looking at doubling two mini scoops but have not yet gotten the specs. So if anyone of you guys have the specs for the design and can share it thanks.

These used to be mine. They are not transmission line, the closest thing you can liken them too is a double mini scoop because of the layout and folding of the horn but there is negative expansion all over the horn making them, as someone has already said, guess work by the looks of it.

Well.... I sold four to a dude called 'Errol' in South London in early 2009. There were another six moved from Nottingham, in 2008, to London, possibly South - I'm sure the the name 'Cas' was mentioned regarding these. I'm also quite sure they were not grey carpet covered, they were painted black.... (there is a specific forum member on here who could confirm/deny this.)
 
Livewire (Bigga) in Birmingham had a number of these cabs, as did Love Express, also from Birmingham (I sold him six). I sold another six brand new and un-used boxes to a further sound in Birmingham who currently have them in storage. Eight went to a geezer in Buckingham, who I then sourced another six for. Four were sold to a guy in Leicester who cut them up into minis. Twelve are still with the guys I was in business with.
 
There were, in 2007, 100 of these boxes sat on a trailer in a transport yard in the West Midlands, all brand new and unused. I'm unsure of the whereabouts of these now.
The guy who actually did the design work on these particular boxes still builds stuff in Birmingham. They date from 2003(ish).
 
The plot thickens.

Apologies to the Op: Not  hijacking the thread:
 
Where in JA R U, Mike 03? R U changing boxes for  the right reasons (weight, rider friendliness, etc.)?
As U say the double hybrid T18 which most sound systems use cannot approach a well-made scoop, much less a super scoop. Don't follow..lead..
 
Was at the Sound system explosion at Stadium car Park last night & 3 of 4 sounds (Stone Love, Swatch & 1 of 4 Bass Odyssey columns) were the double hybrid. throw was non existent. Bass Oddysey was using a curious design in 3 other columns (see pics attached. appears to be some sort of front horn loading ) that sounded far deeper and louder. The line array was Renaissance (2 Way self powered tops with 8"mids by ZANN fr Miami?)

Yes, back towards 2006/7-ish... He did have ASS boxes, they are all still in Birmingham (so I heard). His unit on Western Road was crazy, jammed full of boxes etc the last time I went there, loads of vintage stuff.

I don't see why you guys define those speakers as "scoops"... The mouth area is even smaller than the cone area. They rather are like BR with long expanding port. looks like the sound wave from on driver is fighting the one from the other driver...

Term scoop commonly used to refer to curved sections in rear loaded horns.

However many "scoops" these days have no "scoop", but have approximated curve from 2x or more angled cuts. Does that now also make these "not" scoops ?

More accurate definition of a scoop is rear loaded horn. Even though Wembley bline cabs have no scoop, or uniformly increasing horn, or horn mouth per say, they do possess "pseudo" rear horn loading. Therefore are not just reflex cabs.

As these cabs are based on Wembley Blines, they are also therefore not just reflex cabs. As no reflex cab, can match the SPL, generated by a "mini scoop".

In the UK, the term "mini scoop", is often used to describe sub cabinet, with some type of rear horn loading, which causes sub SPL to exceed that possible from just a reflex cab, regardless of uniform horn expansion or lack thereof.

EDIT:Spoke to my "source" regarding these cabs, and he "insists", the original cabs were manufactured in South London by Cas,  the result of 2x Wembley Blines being fused together. This was before 2007,  then a batch being transported to Birmingham. Embarrassed

As Mykey stated, A similiar cab was present in Shortmans workshop at one time, as I also saw it in person. This was probably mid 2007.

Will find the pics on the forum now.

If you've noticed I've been a bit sketchy about the details of the designer/builders/place of build/construction/machining details etc, i do know a lot more about these boxes and the people behind them, but have chose not to divulge all of the info. Work started on the project a long time before 2007... infact, years before and, as previously stated, the development/build happened in Birmingham.

interesting reading gentlemen.
i heard supaclick play with luv injection at the drum just before christmas and i'm sure he was playing some of these. he was also using vz5000 and sounded rubbish. technical problems, feedback and a whole host of other problems.
 
@pauliepaul.....i have met up with you so many times and had no idea you were so actively involved in my scene and full of so much knowledge/history, i look forward to the convesation next time i see you. i clearly need to do some more homework on the people i deal with as i now feel rather embarrased.
 
anyway, i must dash. i'm off to the drum again to check out qualitex at the drum with luv injection.

If Im honest with you I thought they were G-Subs too (mainly because my house mate who convinced me to buy them had told me they were) until I saw them, I then had to sell them because of there sheer size, and (hope I'm not offending anyone by saying this) but shoddy build quality and inefficient folds and negative expansion etc.

Can anyone explain in simple words what "negative expansion" actually is?

A horn expands - the 'passage' that the soundwave passes down starts out small near the driver and keeps getting larger until it reaches the outside of the box (known as the horn mouth).

Negative expansion would be a 'passage' (or section of that passage) that gets smaller rather than bigger .

Hope that makes sense?
