Engineered to the highest sonic standards, Precision reference monitors from
Tannoy address the needs of professional users in recording, broadcast and
post-production. Designed using the latest techniques, including Klippell?
symmetry and non-linear distortion analysis, laser scanning interferometry and
advanced acoustic CAD simulation, the Precision range takes its place as the
new reference monitoring standard for professional users.
From the front:
40mm MDF sculpted baffle ? stiff, heavy and rigid and minimises diffraction.
Recessed drive units flush with the baffle surface ? minimises diffraction.
10 point fixing maximises contact between drive unit and baffle.
Drive unit development using Klippell? analysis equipment to minimise offsets
and linearise the suspension components.
Cast chassis Tannoy Dual Concentric? point source constant directivity driver.
Effectively two drivers properly merged into one, with the HF mounted on the back
of the LF unit so that both drivers are on the same axis, As a result sound energy
is propagated from the same point and delivered through the centre of the low frequency
cone providing a true point source. This integrated approach provides a constant time
delay over the frequency spectrum offering better transient performance and sound quality
with better harmonic alignment than a displaced source monitor design. The crucial benefit
at the mix position is the delivery of a more natural and cleaner sound with greatly enhanced
A key benefit of the Dual design is a very wide ‘sweet spot’ with an exceptionally even response
throughout the listening area and extraordinary transient response. This phase accurate Tannoy
designed drive unit has, for all these reasons, been the choice of professional studio engineers for
Tannoy SuperTweeter? extends the amplitude response beyond 20kHz audibility to 50kHz to correct
the phase response from 8kHz to 20kHz within the audible band. This preserves the harmonic structure
of sounds and the stability of the stereo image.
Smooth tweeter faceplate contours prevent diffraction and cavity effects.
From the side:
18mm MDF cabinet construction provides stiffness and minimises colouration.
Internal construction braces the sides and rear of the cabinet against the rear of
the bass driver to provide a rigid reactive mass for the moving cone assembly.
Ensures fast tight bass response and clear midrange.
Front baffle and rear panel tongued and grooved into the cabinet as a mechanical
interlock for safety if wall mounted.
From the rear:
Simple foolproof gold plated terminal panel. No degradation due to bi-wire
links in the HF signal path.
OmniMount friendly fixing points for wall mounting.
