“The Drive Systems in this Range, when mounted in suitable enclosures, are capable of reproducing the entire audio spectrum at the high sound levels and with the low distortion required in professional work and in the most ambitious domestic installations.
Each system consists of a direct radiator bass unit and a high frequency compression driver, both located concentrically within the same frame and magnet assembly.
The low-frequency section is a long excursion, low resonance loudspeaker having a 2″ high temperature voice-coil. The ‘296 uses a newly developed polyolefin cone material which gives a particularly smooth colour-free response.
High frequencies are reproduced by a horn-loaded compression driver utilizing a duralumin diaphragm and 2″ diameter aluminum voice-coil.
The crossover network receives an electrical signal containing the full frequency spectrum from the amplifier, and divides it between the low frequency and high frequency sections of the loudspeaker system. Tannoy networks are of the highest quality: capacitors are non-polarized, solid dialetric types for low losses and close tolerances; resistors and inductors are very generously rated; and all components are assembled on a fiberglass printed circuit board for maximum reliability.”
