Hi all :)

I have always liked the sound of Tannoys concentric full range speakers.
Lately I did a mix of a concert on Tannoys NFM8 (nera field monitor 8")

Looking around I found that it seems these are not made anymore but I came across THESE ....

I would use active crossover and bi-amplification, maybe with tube amps?... why not! :up:

Anyone ever had experience with them?
I am looking at studio monitor type of speakers.

Luc

Hi Luc, I have heard some Tannoys as well and they are good. The one thing I am not crazy about is the XO in the midrange.

Have you thought of a small fullrange + a LF driver with an XO at ~300Hz? Although something like this would be much larger than studio sized.

G'day Luc,
I've used a couple of different models of tannoys and yes they are pretty good.If you're looking for nearfield monitors for mixing to build, then have a look at these, Fostex FX120 Bass Reflex Bookshelf Speakers they look like they would do a very good job in a studio, and you wont have any crossover problems. I intend to build them for myself when finance permits.....
