Tannoy Eclipse Three Loudspeakers
All that you love and all that you feel from music, delivered by Tannoy’s most affordable high delity loudspeaker series to date.
Starting with Tannoy’s proven heavyweight breboard cabinet design, the Eclipse series is internally braced to minimise cabinet colouration and deliver tighter, more tuneful bass. The cabinets are rear ported to assist deep bass reproduction and keep the front baf e’s clean lines. A dedicated plinth is provided on both oorstanding models providing stability and ensuring fast and taut low frequency performance. This isfurther enhanced with adjustable oor spikes for precise levelling of the speaker cabinet without damage to carpets.
Eclipse drivers are a whole new design from Tannoy. The range mates a 28 mm (1.10”) coated silk dome tweeter with new high ef ciency Eclipse mid/bass drivers for seamless integration and an incredibly dynamic sound throughout the audio band. The LF drivers have been developed with a light, stiff multi- bre cone with nitrile rubber surround for superb transient attack and bass punch. High ef ciency neodymium magnets on the HF drivers extend frequency response to 32 kHz, for smooth and detailed treble.
Eclipse crossovers draw on the design and component choices of Tannoy’s more af uent models, including the use of low loss laminated core inductors for exceptional musical detailing. Tannoy’s unique DMT (Differential Materials Technology) compound is used to damp micro vibrations on the polypropylene capacitors, further enhancing Eclipse’s musicality and communication.
The floorstanding Eclipse Three benefits from a D’Appolito driver con guration. Placing the tweeter centrally between the two bass/mid drivers smooths dispersion through the crossover region, delivering a highly articulate performance on or off axis. Again drawing on Tannoy’s high end loudspeaker designs, Eclipse drivers are mounted using Tannoy’s DMT and use eight bolts on the mid/bass drivers to ensure optimal cabinet to driver integration.
The flagship of Tannoy’s Eclipse range, the Eclipse Three is a loudspeaker designed to deliver the biggest scale performance and incredible value for money. The near 1metre tall ported cabinet is over 26 litres in volume and packs in the latest Eclipse 28 mm soft dome HF driver and twin 127 mm (5.00”) Eclipse mid/bass drivers for truly class leading bass dynamics. Suitable for medium and larger sized rooms, the Eclipse Three is a substantial system upgrade for budget and more upmarket Hi-Fi systems as well as premium amplified network streamers.
The Eclipse Three employs a D’Appolito driver configuration, usually only found on much more affluent loudspeaker designs. By placing the tweeter centrally between the two bass/mid drivers, the speaker’s dispersion characteristics are smoothed through the critical crossover region. The result is a highly articulate musical performance on or off the loudspeaker’s main axis, eliminating the room’s traditional ‘sweet spot’ and delivering peak performance across more seats in your listening room.
Backing up the class-leading sound-staging with real world dynamic scale, the Eclipse Three is tremendously efficient at 90 dB / Watt and boasts 240 Watt peak power handling. The larger cabinet and twin mid/bass driver configuration deliver outstanding low frequency response, with bass reproduction down to an earth-shaking 38 Hz… lower than many manufacturer’s budget subwoofers!
The Eclipse Three’s braced cabinet, two-part plinth for additional stability and audiophile components add to up to a truly class leading loudspeaker design finished with equally premium touches. From the robust gold-plated speaker terminals to the 8-bolt driver mounting, subtle trim detailing and satin black oak finish, The Eclipse Three sets new standards for budget loudspeakers in both performance and looks.
