    I have a pair of PBM8s and blew a woofer. Any suggestions on repair/replacement?

    Update: I submitted a spare parts request ticket and have a case number, but have not yet received a response.

    30 Dec Update: Parts said they couldn't help. Does anyone have any leads or suggestions? These are great speakers and I'd hate to give them up.

    I was left two Tannoy speakers (LSU/HF/IIILZG/8U) by my father, and would like to know who the original owner was. He may have acquired these from Abbey Road studio when they upgraded in 1973-4 (his company was a supplier of theirs), but can this be proven? They have serial numbers attached.

    I play digital piano at home ( just cocktail piano- no singing). I have an excellent and very critical ear for music. I play high quality sampled or modelled pianos. My setup at home gives me the perfect sound I need into my Bose headphones. I also play organ, and need some speakers which can reproduce the organ pedal frequency ( down to about 40 hertz).  I would like a pair of speakers to hear the Rotary speaker effect of the organ Leslie simulator.

    Task: I want to play some occasional gigs in pubs/ coffee bars ( maybe only 6 per year). Instead of buying a set of speakers for home and a small P.A. Setup for small gig work, I am considering using Tannoy Reveal 802 Monitors for both jobs to get value for money.

     

    The case For: Reveal 802 have 100w power each, and for background piano, I think about 30watts should be fine. So they would not be stressed at all. They have excellent reviews for good bass response without a sub, so should give a rich sound for piano lower keys or organ pedals.

    So has anybody else tried this?

      Vicped And I should mention that when I go into music shops , salespeople tend to say they aren’t designed for that. Of course they would say that as they want to sell you two products- and they have had the sales training. But setting the design aim aside, my query is ‘ will it work’?

      Paul_Vannatto If you look on page 5 of the manual, it clearly says these are "designed as near-field monitors, positioned typically 0.75 to 3 meters from the listener". PA speakers are designed completely different to cover further distance and wider coverage. Also, those speakers have no front screens protecting the drivers. All you need is one drunk poking at your speakers and they are done with.

      Pubs are actually quite difficult to do good sound and you need good PA speakers to make it work. One of the bands that I do sound for did a few gigs at a local bar (pub) and using TurboSound iQ12 as the main speakers (2500 watts per speaker), it was a challenge to get it right to get it not too loud but loud enough to get over the ambient noise (of customers talking and whooping it up).

      Vicped Thanks for taking the time to reply. Yes I know that monitor speaks are designed for up to 3 metres listening distance. But I am wondering how they perform beyond their design capabilities? E.g. what if a listener is 4 metres away- do the sound waves suddenly stop at 3 metres distance, I don’t think so. So could I get away with more distance, say 6, to 10 metres?
      I take your point about damage to the speakers, butI don’t play that type of gig. Think of a piano bar where customers interested in hearing the music sit near to the piano, and those who sit on the other side of the pub don’t need to hear it at all.

      • Using monitor speakers for live performance- low volume small to medium venue
        Vicped I can’t be the only person who thinks that buying decent monitors for home and trying to use them in rare live gigs could be a money saver.

      • Using monitor speakers for live performance- low volume small to medium venue
        Vicped I have looked at the specs for bandwidth and read reviews of P.A. Speakers, but it seems no mid range P.A. Speakers can get near the sound quality of monitors, until you get to the high end products from EV or QTX, which are above my budget and do not make sense for a few gigs per year. Maybe I should explore the HiFi route? Some second hand Mission floorstanders and a decent HiFi amp may be an option….

      Paul_Vannatto Well put it this way. You are most welcome to try your near-fields or hifi. Just don't be surprised if they don't ask you back. PA speakers are specifically designed for PA work.

    Re: Case CAS-466240-T5N7P2

    I sent in a Tannoy Gold 8 studio monitor to be repaired since it was still under warranty.  I sent the speaker into the repair center on June 29 and I received notification that it arrived on July 14.  The only communication I have gotten since then was on September 13 which stated:

    Your unit has been evaluated and parts have been ordered. We currently do not have the parts in stock and they have been placed on back order. I do not have an ETA at this time.

    Is there a reason that a repair should take this long? Why not just send a replacement since the monitor was still under warranty?

    I would appreciate some clarification and some action since having one expensive monitor sitting in my studio does me little good.

    Thank You

    Jeffrey

      Nigel67 Hi jblair. I can only apologise for the delay in repairing your loudspeaker. I have checked your ticket and messaged the colleague who is handling it and asked him to contact you with the present repair situation on Monday. Again, I am very sorry for the inconvenience this is causing you.

    Hi all!

    I've just recently moved to a new house and my Den space has limited capacity. Given the space that's left there's no feasible way to keep my speakers on floor stands.

     

    I would like to wall mount them but don't know the first thing about it or if these speakers can even support it.

     

    If anyone has, how and what have you used to do the mounting, third party product or otherwise could be recommended to do so?

     

    Thanks!

      Dale_M Hi there, please take a look at the specs for your speaker (in image taken from the manual) and ensure that there is adequate space on your choice of speaker bracket to take the physical size and weight of your speakers.Also ensure that there is foam/rubber fitted where the speaker will sit to absorb the vibration and prevent it from coupling from the bracket in to the wall. (Please note we cannot recommend any particular brand)

    I just created a support ticket, but was wondering, are:

    Dead Reveal 402's a common thing?

     

    I bought 5 since 2014, 

    4 have died on me. (They died in 2014, 15, 16 and 21)

    They were all connected to different Furman line conditioners, different apt and houses, fed from different pres, and on different DAWS.

    Hi,

    I bought used pairof Tannoy Reveal 402. Everythink is okay, but i hear loud "hiss" sound.
    What can i do in this situation? Is this possible to eliminate noise sound?

    This sound appears when i just switch on monitors. I do not plug anything, just switch on.

    Best Regards

      Dale_M Hi there, it would be best to do the obvious things first like trying different cables or a different audio source/set-up to see if the problem stays with the speakers or stays at your equipment.

    Salve, ho acquistato 2 behringer verità b2031a su amazon.it. Non ho trovato i certificati di calibrazione all'interno delle scatole (imballo nuovo, originale mai aperto prima). qualcuno sa dirmi perché? questi certificati sono ancora forniti con il b2031a? grazie per le risposte.
