    Hello, I'm looking for any advice regarding cabinets for a pair of 1978 Tannoy dual concentric 15” speakers. Hoping to house them in 300L cabinets. Thanks in advance.

      Nigel67 Hi, I think that you will probably find the link below helpful. They have a lot more information than we do from this era and people have made their own cabinets. They also have a forum that you could join and ask questions. I hope this is helpful. https://www.hilberink.nl/speaker.htm

      Nigel67 Hi nutty007. I noticed that you have also sent us a support ticket (CAS-450304-X3H4Q9). I have passed this on to our Spares team and someone from there will get back to you with availability and pricing. Many thanks

    Hi, everyone, I am a HiFi speaker enthusiast that have by chance posessed a pair of Klark Teknik Jade 2 active monitoring speaker cabinet set.  I am in the process of restoring the sets.  I have already have all the brand new Dynaudio speakers components (Tweeters, Mid Range, and Sub-woofers). I would like to exchange knowledge with anyone who owned or produced the speakers.  I still have some questions to settle before I put them on.  Can anyone share some info with me to restore this vintage Klark Teknik Jade 2 high end active monitoring speaker sets.  Thank you!

      Dale_M Hi there they used to be made in Kidderminster but I am afraid we cannot share schematics with you. However do any of them exhibit any faults? We may be able to advise.

    Dear Tannoy,

    I am interested in your Tannoy Gold 8 Active Studio Nearfield Monitors but I note that the lower frequnct response is capped at 50Hz, what solution do you provide for the 0 - 50Hz sub-bass?

    • DavidintheMusicTribe
      PedroRodrigues Hi DavidintheMusicTribe effectively you are correct the Tannoy Gold 8 at ±3 dB offers a Frequency response of 54 Hz – 20 kHz and at -10 dB offers a Frequency response of 40 Hz – 20 kHz, unfortunately at this moment we do not offer any product that includes in there frequency response the lower frequency spectrum that you are referring to. Please also consider that the majority of studio subwoofers will offer a frequency spectrum of 24 Hz - 85 Hz at -6dB. Thank you

    Hi, I live in Irvine, CA. I would like to buy Revolution XT 8F-GW and take delivery before April 15, but I cannot find any reseller in the US which has it in stock.
    Can you help? Thanks,

    I'd like to know if bi-wiring is recommended for the Cheviot Legacy (I own).

    0 31
    • Paul53
      PedroRodrigues Hi, Paul53,please consider that most of our residential loudspeakers, and your Tannoy CHEVIOT are a good example have two sets of speaker terminals, one for the bass (LF) and one for the treble (HF).
      These are normally joined by links, and a single cable run is used to the amplifier.
      However, by removing these links, and using two sets of cable or a special bi-wire cable, the LF and HF are only connected together at the amplifier.
      Even the best cables suffer from losses due to their electrical resistance, inductance and capacitance, and so bi-wiring avoids interaction between the LF and delicate HF parts of the signal.
      This gives better clarity, detail and an improved soundstage. Your Instruction Manual will detail how to prepare your loudspeakers for bi-wiring, and your dealer will be able to advise on suitable cable choices for a given budget.
      For further information, please refer to our White Paper by following the link below:

      • Bi- wiring or not the Cheviot Legacy
        Paul53 ... I was going to thank you, first. As a matter of fact, the theoretical benefits of bi-wiring are known. The question is if, in practice, such benefits are discernible. Moreover, there are those who believe the single-wiring sound is preferable...

    Hey there!

     

    I am about to buy a second hand dc8ti.

     

    Just wanted to know the release date of the speaker so i know if its too old.

    Also want to know if these speakers come with a base (plynth or somewhat)! The owner says it didnt come with a base but all the pictures i see, it has a base.

    Also is it available for purchase as a spare part (the base), and what is the cost?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi ChrisFromGrece, you can find out the manufacture date of a unit by the serial number. The below article will guide you in how to find this out:

      https://community.musictribe.com/pages/kba?articleId=8bc4966a-6c30-ea11-a812-000d3a081b66&brand=Tannoy

      With regards to the plinth, it may be worth double-checking the model of the speaker as the DC8Ti should as you have seen in photos come with one, however, the DC8T would not. This information again should be shown on the serial number label

      • Definition DC8ti
        ChrisFromGreece Thanks for the reply. I can’t tell which model it is (dc8ti or dc8T). Is there any chance you can tell, if I send you some pics??
        • Jan 28
      • Definition DC8ti
        ChrisEdwards1 Hi ChrisFromGrece, of course if you can supply pictures of the unit and serial number we will be able to confirm from the product code within the serial number.

    Hi

    I am the owner of a Tannoy arena highline system and the subwoower ts500 is making a very loud chirping noise.

    Is there any recommendation how to deal with this problem?

    Best regards

    • Pribalta
      Nigel67 Hi Pribalta. This could be a component in the power supply that is starting to fail. Its very difficult to give a definitive answer without us taking a look at it. I would advise that you send it in to us for repair by clicking on the support tab at the top of the page and in the new window that opens, scroll down to the service tab and submit a ticket.

      • Chirping sound in subwoofer
        Pribalta Thanks Nigel. The issue happens when the device is connected, if the input cable is removed the sound disappears. The device was bought 5 years ago so unfortunately the warranty has expired. Nevertheless I appreciate you taking time to look into this. I will first reach out to a local electronics store and see what can be done.
        • Jan 27
      • Chirping sound in subwoofer
        Nigel67 Have you confirmed that the problem is not the device that is feeding the sub? Do you have anything else that you can plug into the sub to see if the noise re-appears or not. I would also try a different cable, although if a ground was broken the noise wouldn't sound like the noise you are hearing. i would definitely try another source and cable before taking the sub apart.

    Hi all. Does anybody know what is the definition of a Tannoy Grade B speaker ? BW Adam 

    0 28
    • AdamE007
      ChrisEdwards1 Hi AdamE007, the definition of this will vary between distributors/resellers so it is best to fully check this with the place that is selling them, however, in most cases B grade will refer to something that has been returned within the first 30 days of the sale and can no longer be sold as A stock. This can sometimes include Ex-Demo but in most cases this will be listed differently. The product could also show slight signs of cosmetic issues.

      I would highly recommend checking this with the place they are being listed though as stated their definition may be slighlty different.

        AdamE007 Thanks Chris. Interesting ! Nimtronics have 2x pairs of grade B unopened GR Canterbury’s for sale. In the 1st instance, I have asked for photos, serial numbers, proof of purchase and a QC certificate ... can you think of anything else ? BW Adam

        ChrisEdwards1 Hi AdamE007, looks like you have all basis covered if i am honest. If they can provide any further general history this could be good but i think from the information you have requested it should give you enough background.
