The narrow D s0 * (2317) and broad D 0 * (2300-2400) charmed scalar mesons and their radial excitations are described in a coupled-channel quark model that also reproduces the properties of the light scalar nonet. All two-meson channels containing ground-state pseudoscalars and vectors are included. The parameters are chosen fixed at published values, except for the overall coupling constant λ, which is fine-tuned to reproduce the D s0 * (2317) mass, and a damping constant α for subthreshold contributions. Variations of λ and D 0 * (2300-2400) pole postions are studied for different α values. Calculated cross-sections for S-wave DK and scattering, as well as resonance pole positions, are given for the value of α that fits the light scalars. The thus predicted radially excited state D s0 *′(2850), with a width of about 50MeV, seems to have been observed already.
