20 Most Recent Tannoy Reveal 6D Speaker Questions & Answers

What you need to do is connect a 1.5 volt battery to the speaker(s) terminals for a split second. Put your ear to the tweeter at the same time (you might someone to help you do this). If the tweeter "pops" it works, if not you might have blown them. The best way would (to be certain) is to remove the tweeter from the crossover inside the unit.
Tweeters are the first thing to go when the speaker has been connected to an amp that is wrong for them or they have been run at high volume.

Hmm, what killed the tweeters? Over-exuberant operation? What's going on with your amp? Is it being pushed into stress or distortion? THAT will kill a speaker faster than clean high power.

Hiya, i assume for now that you mean the 16dip switch. If i remember correctly it is solder directly to board (could be wrong). If you are comfortable with doing this, it will need to be opened and resoldered probably for dry joints. If not then suggest hunting out a friend with some solder experience. A word of caution though, shorting out solder tracks etc could result in damage so only do it if you are comfortable. If the dry joints are really bad (sound like they are) you should be able to see them clearly and resolder (look for not so bright and shiny solder that looks cracked. Magnifier helps)

Hope that helps

One possibility is that the mute switches on your speakers have oxydized contacts INSIDE the switch - this kind of malfunction mostly occurs when the equipment is exposed to moisture and/or smog.

The most common solution is to change both switches, but they can also be disassembled and cleaned up (which is a bit more complicated and time consuming).

Another possibility is a dried up filter capacitor in the power supply or somewhere in the preamplifier section, possibly also a bad preamplifier chip but if your speakers work fine (with the exception of the mute switch noise), then the problem is more likely with the switches.

Also, check the internal connectors for any dirt, broken wires or desoldered pins.

Could also be something else, you should know i'm only assuming on the possibilities and i'm listing the most common problems i've encountered so far.

I still suggest calling Tannoy, They are usually very reasonable and will give you a fair price to service a very good product

If the company say they are no longer made, then it's unlikely you will find replacements in any electrical parts supplier.
If you still want to use the unit then you will have to look around for one on places like e-bay, which might be faulty elsewhere , but have a working tweeter.
A search on e-bay itself might even reveal a spare tweeter! Or a second hand that's cheap to replace the one you have. At least you will another set of spares (except tweeter of course) for the new one!

Two suggestions: They're old how old I can't tell I'd go to their web sight and see what you can find. Sorry that's best I can do.

It sounds like you have blown a component or an IC on a board. Technics are good kit and certainly worth repairing. I had a full Technics Stacking system which I bought in 1987. I did have the electronic volume controller replaced. 'Funny Smell' is always indicative of a burned out board or component.
