Tannoy DC8i in-wall speaker
Designed to be used in left, centre or right locations the DC8i brings audiophile performance to both music and movie applications in vast array of listening and viewing environments.
Built around the unique high sensitivity Tannoy Dual Concentric™ drive unit, the Definition Install range brings class leading accuracy, detail and dynamics to installation applications ranging from media rooms to home theatre and boardrooms through to high end marine interiors.
The compact MDF cabinet is vented and rigidly constructed with extensive bracing to be acoustically inert.
The speaker is designed to be hidden within a custom designed installation; mounted on wall either behind the screen or acoustically transparent decorative panels with no appreciable loss of performance.
The unit can be mounted either horizontally or vertically using the integral keyhole mounts and the supplied wall plate.
Characteristic of the Dual Concentric™ design is a very wide 'sweet spot' with an exceptionally even response throughout the listening area, as well as an extraordinary transient response; reasons enough for this phase accurate Tannoy designed drive unit to have been the choice of professional studio engineers all over the world for many years.
The Dual Concentric™ is effectively two drivers properly merged into one where, unlike ordinary drive units, the high frequency unit is positioned on the back of the low frequency driver. As a result they are on same axis, so ensuring that sound energy is effectively propagated from the same point and delivered through the centre of the low frequency cone as true point source.
Such integration optimises reproduction quality by providing a constant time delay over the frequency spectrum, exceptional transient performance, wide dispersion and superior harmonic alignment; all of which delivers to the listening position a natural, clean and integrated sound with greatly enhanced intelligibility, sound staging and dynamics.
