Starting with Tannoy’s proven heavyweight 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 lines clean. A dedicated plinth is provided on both floorstanding models providing stability and ensuring fast and taut low frequency performance. This is further enhanced with adjustable floor spikes for precise levelling of the speaker cabinet without damage to carpets.
The Tannoy Eclipse Centre enables various system configurations as it will work well with either the Eclipse Mini or Eclipse One as the rear channel and Eclipse Two or Three for front left and right channel. Alternatively, for small rooms, a very compact system is possible by combining the Eclipse Centre with two pairs of Minis for front and rear. Despite its entry level price, the 32 Hz upper frequency extension ensures that the Eclipse Centre is capable of providing fantastic performance with High Resolution multichannel audio while its 67 Hz bass response is well-matched for typical AV receiver bass management systems.
Eclipse drivers are a whole new design from Tannoy. The range mates a 28 mm (1.10”) coated silk dome tweeter with new high effciency 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 efficiency 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 affluent 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 configuration. 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.
