The DC8T Series
The DC8T series of Tannoy speakers is the mid-level in the three-strong Definition range. This range has similarities with the models of the same name that were sold in the mid-1990s. DC refers to the dual concentric drive component that covers the whole audio range, expanded by a bass-only driver, while 8 refers to the dimension in inches of both drive units. Furthermore, T is for tower, an American term for floor stander.
Each drive unit that measures 200 mm has a 145-mm doped paper cone. The dual concentric driver has a combination of a bass/mid cone and a 25-mm horn-loaded tweeter. This fires through the middle of the cone, creating an efficient two-way full-range drive unit.
This kind of Tannoy speakers has a striking enclosure, which is stylishly shaped that has clean modern lines. The silver cut around every driver and near the base vividly contrasts with the high-gloss black finish. Cherry veneer and dark walnut are the existing designs.
For the reflections and internal horizontal standing waves to be well dispersed, the sides are sturdily curved towards a much narrower back. A silver-trimmed port at the back reflex-loads the enclosure. The magnets concealed under the front panel surface holds the grille in place. It is undetectable if the grille is not in use.
The DC8T, like other Tannoy speakers, has attractive surfaces. Apart from its look, the carcass is in top quality as well. It is built from first-rate plywood, made from opaque birch. The bracing integrates the brand’s Differential Material Technology (DMT) systems to connect the driver/enclosure interface rigidly with suitable self-damping.
