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.
