^{2}× 3 × 5 × 11**660 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **660edo** or **660ed2**), also called **660-tone equal temperament** (**660tet**) or **660 equal temperament** (**660et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 660 equal parts of about 1.82 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/660}, or the 660th root of 2.

660edo is enfactored in the 5-limit, with the same tuning as 330edo, tempering out the schisma and the 22nd-octave major arcana comma, [-193 154 -22⟩.

However, it is far better viewed as a no-5 system. It does tune well the 2.3.7.11.13 subgroup, with errors less than 50% on all pairs of intervals in that subgroup that also belong to the 15-odd-limit. In addition, in the no-5s 17-odd-limit, it only misses the pair {17/13, 26/17}.

Nonetheless, patent val does have some use. It tunes the undecimal dimcomp temperament and also provides the optimal patent val for the quadrant temperament in the 11-limit as well as the 13-limit. Furthermore, in 2.3.7 it is a septiruthenian system, and the patent val mapping for 5 allows the tuning of ruthenium temperament.

Other mappings can be considered. Taking a different mapping for 5, the 660c val tunes qintosec and atomic. In the 7-limit, it tunes decoid. In addition, one can combine the mappings for five to produce a 2.3.25 subgroup interpretation. There, 660edo has less error than on either vals and it tempers out the kwazy comma, as well as the landscape comma in the 2.3.25.7 subgroup.

### Subsets and supersets

Since 660 factors as 2^{2} × 3 × 5 × 11, it has subset edos 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 15, 20, 22, 30, 33, 44, 55, 60, 66, 110, 132, 165, 220, 330.
