    Hi,

    I just bought the Tannoy DMT II 215 Speakers and wanted to make sure of the connection.  I am going to use a single 500 Watt amp to power these and the SPL MTC Model 2381 Monitor and Talkback Controller.  I have the DMT II 215 manual but I would like to see a photo of the actual connection to the speakers.  Thank you.

    Hi, Guys. Please, help, both discontinued monitors REVEAL 6D stopped workinh, Red LED on front, instead of GREEN. 

    Inside of a amp module - no smell, no phisycal damage, all ports are connected. Any idea. If the amp repair is big problem, how about to squees, for example, amp module of GOLD 8, or some other crazy idea?

    The only I have a chance to check an output voltage from power transformer - smth about 24v and 52v.

    THANKS

    I was wondering if someone could explain the Lf window settings on the Tannoy 215 DMT ii. I would like to know which setting is for 3 way setup. Thanks.

    Hi Guys

    One of my speaker terminal poles snapped off when I was moving the speakers anyone know where I can buy a replacement? I found a couple of old 605 crossover units on ebay I could cannibalise but don't even know if they are the same size? What crossover do the NFM 8's have? It's hard to find any info on these speakers.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Tannoy makes mounting systems for some of its speakers.  But I do not see anything for Reveal 402's.  These will be placed such that I'm concerned about them being knocked over (they'd fall about 4 feet).

    Any ideas?  Or is there perhaps some mounting provisiion already on the bottom of the speakers?

    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.
