      DavidKnighton Hello EricVon,
      These speakers are quite legacy, long before Music Tribe even existed. Parts for them are going to be obsolete. You may find some 3rd party sellers on eBay, but I would presume almost any twist style speaker terminal will be compatible. You can send it pretty much anywhere you like, because there is no active electronics in these speakers. I would try and find someone who specializes in HiFi speaker repair because they will likely treat your product with a little more finesse than your average electronics repair center. You might also want to try Upscale Audio. They are the premier Tannoy HiFi distributor in USA. They might be able to help you out.

    A couple of years ago, I bought a house that had a theater room in the basement.  The previous owner left the rear speakers installed in the wall.  I pulled one out and learned they are Tannoy iw60 efx boxes.  I found the manual online.  I'm a speaker noob.  I read the cinema mode is 4 ohms while a music mode is 8 ohms.  My receiver only goes down to 6 ohms.  So, I assume I need the speakers to be in music mode.  I have no clue how to do this.  I would appreciate any help.  Also, advice on whether these will be good rear surround speakers would be great.  Thanks!

      PedroRodrigues Hi JD23 when using the Tannoy iW60 EFX I would recommend having a Amplifier Power that offers the following power and impedance 100 - 200 W @ 8 Ohms and power handling of Average 100 W; Programme 200 W; Peak 400 W so you must look for power amplifier that offers these specifications to avoid any issues. Thank you

      JD23 Thank you for the reply. I am wondering how to make the speakers 4 ohms vs 8 ohms. Aside from the normal red and black pair of banana plugs, there is a green connector on the back with a place to insert 4 wires and set screws to tighten down on them. The holes are marked two with a plus and two with a minus. Does this have something to do with the resistence?
