The satellites feature a 75mm paper cone driver for midrange and bass, and a 15mm titanium dome tweeter with a neodymium magnet. Their curved rear end is about more than just aesthetics. This redesigned enclosure works in harmony with the new drivers and crossover upgrades, aiming to ‘eliminate standing waves in key frequencies’.
The polymer used to make the cabinets has been enhanced to more effectively damp the enclosure, while tweaked internal bracing aims to deliver greater punch. The satellites also feature Tannoy’s WideBand technology, which enables the tweeter to reach high frequencies up to 78kHz, well above the upper range of Blu-ray’s audio formats and our hearing.
The subwoofer’s bass tones are mustered by a 100W class A/B amplifier and a long-throw 200mm driver. Its performance can be tweaked on the rear panel with dials controlling crossover and volume, plus switches for flipping the phase 180° and selecting the power mode (on/off/auto). Connections include stereo cinch and speaker level inputs.
