Sound And Torsion










Why The Tannoy Dual Concentric

Connoisseurs will quibble, but the trend in the way speakers work has mostly been in one direction.   The general drift in twentieth century loudspeaker design -- for music playback, anyway --  has been from the early large-and-cumbersome full-frequency single driver format, moving toward the small and multidriver-array system approach.   The drawback to the multidriver system approach is the delicate & complex sound form the designer must generate with different drivers, crossover networks and complicated enclosures, integrating them to comprise a convincing sound picture.  The challenge for the fullrange approach, of course, is to maintain convincing performance in the 'presence' region while extending toward valid resolution in the frequency extremes.
