A SuperTweeter™ is a small high frequency drive unit, mounted in a special casing, designed to sit on top of, and drawing its input signal from, existing speakers. Tannoy SuperTweeter™ will transform any sound system, creating the effect of a quantum leap upgrade in the sound quality of speakers, electronic components and cables.
All models are stand-alone units with vertical axis adjustment to ensure optimum combined acoustic output with the main speaker. Each has two sets of controls allowing both operating frequency and output level to be optimised for any type of speaker.
ST50 SuperTweeter™ is constructed from a solid aluminium die-casting coated with a soft feel, non-reflecting finish. Not only are they designed to visually blend in with all types of speakers, but it also provides an instant acoustic upgrade that is unavailable in any other way.
A high stiffness titanium dome minimises the effects of dome break-up and extend frequency response, while a copper clad aluminium voice coil on aluminium former ensures high power handling. A neodymium magnet system also extends frequency response by minimising eddy current losses in voice coil and a driver magnet system earthing avoids interference and information masking caused by radio interference.
Gold plated terminals, adjustment screws and circuit board are used for high signal transparency. Radio Frequency quality inductors in crossover for excellent high frequency characteristics and non-inductive planar thick film resistors on ceramic substrates, avoid losses associated with wire wound types. High quality polycarbonate film capacitors have been selected for high frequency use.
The ST50 SuperTweeter™ has been designed by Tannoy to provide extended high frequency response that will enhance the listening experience. Modern programme material and sources, such as SACD and DVDA, have driven the requirement for loudspeakers with extended frequency bandwidth performance.
Always at the forefront of audio evolution, Tannoy has been developing just such wide bandwidth loudspeaker technology over many years. Almost universally applicable to any brand of loudspeaker, the new ST50 SuperTweeter™ excels with extensive range of Tannoy loudspeakers both past and present. Once installed, the listener will experience a far wider range of bandwidth information for instruments than is possible with conventional loudspeakers.
The ST50™ is constructed from solid aluminium die-castings coated with a soft feel, non-reflecting finish. The unique Tannoy Performance Platform™, gives stable support and accurate variable adjustment. Not only are they designed to visually blend in with all types of speakers, but they also provide an instant acoustic upgrade that is unavailable in any other way.
