Don’t let that put you off; these cabinets are often superior to the standard Tannoy cabinets.What is Tannoy's waveguide theory?
Tannoy’s waveguide theory was developed through a computer-assisted design platform that was configured to analyse microwave frequency waveguides through mathematical equations. Waveguide research resulted in several improvements to the tweeter unit used in newer dual concentric speakers.How were Tannoy gold monitors developed?
Tannoy gold monitor dual concentric speakers were a design evolution of the earlier Tannoy red speakers. Gold monitors outperform reds in many areas, they offer improved bass performance with lower frequency response, and a heavier cone weight to achieve a lower resonant frequency. Gold monitor dual concentric speakers also have an updated tweeter design. Where red monitor tweeters used a pressed aluminium diaphragm, gold monitors were fitted with a compression-moulded tweeter diaphragm.How can you identify different types of dual concentric speakers?
