Question about Tannoy Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I just bought a pair of Tannoy Mercury V4 with a broken tweeter. Where do I find a new one?

I need help to know the code of the tweeter, where I can buy such a tweeter, or is it possible to repair?. The model is HF: 25mm (1") Nitro-Urethane layer damped woven polyester dome, neodymium magnet assembly. How to undo this box? I have to remove first the subwoofer? Do I need to control the crossover? Waiting any help. Thanks

    Thanks Alexander. I already order the tweeter at lockwoodaudio.co.uk. Now I need some ideas how to take out the tweeter from loudspeaker. Any help is welcome.

    You should be able to just take the screws out and once the screws are out then just pull the tweeter out of place and unplug the cables that are connected to the back of the tweeter...is it possible to take a pic and post it on here?

    Please open a photo with Tannoy Mercury V4. There is no screws. It is just a ring around. I try to pull it but is very solid glue, or something else. The woofer is same ring.

    ok according to the picture I saw online..there should be 6 screw holes on the face of the speaker. Just take those out and take the whole front of the speaker off. Disconnect the wires to the tweeter and pop the tweeter off. Actually before you do all that, get something flat to pry the ring off...usually the ring is there to cover the screws connecting the speaker/tweeter to the face.

SOURCE: inverted(puhed in)tweeter

Hi George,

You may be able to pull them out using tape. That is sellotape then gently pull .They should pop out like
a dented car panel. My understanding is these domes really protect moving coil from dust so should not affect sound. Worst case swop the tweeter.
Ive just bought a pair of revolution 3 with same "fault" so I will let you know how I get on .I am in Electronics trade as profession. It may be possible to gently remove dome using a surgical blade then popping out and gluing on with PVA / Latex glue coloured with black ink if you dont like white appearance.

It is sometimes possible to pull out using fine sewing needle push in then gently pull out as if removing a spell from your finger.

Hope this helps

I work in a church that has 4 passive speakers across the room, 3 out of 4 of them sound super muffled and n one of them sound perfect Ive tried switching power amps, there is no processing help?


I would say from your description that the tweeters are blown.
Can you take the speaker that sounds good and swap it out with one that sounds bad. If you do that and the good one still sounds good. You have a tweeter problem. And they would need to be replaced.

Tannoy v1 reduced brightness from one tweeter, diagnose? replace? honestly unsure if broken tweeter is the duller one or the brighter one, help?


I assume you have more than one of these speakers. If so simply remove the tweeters from the two speakers and swap them around. If the other speaker acts up then, you know the tweeter is faulty. However if it stays on the same speaker it's the crossover that's the problem.

Tannoy reveal speakers have lost treble


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.

Replacement tweeters for Eyris 1


If any new readers are seeking the same advice, then as at Feb 2016, replacements are available from Real Electronics in the UK, 08452 307 747 - this info from the service line at Tannoy. £63.21 + VAT + delivery. Part no 7900 0621

Much of the advice above is not applicable to the Eyris, folks seem to be posting generic solutions.

Unbolt the hex bolts at the rear of the tweeter assembly. With a screwdriver or similar, push the threaded rods forward to move the front portion of the tweeter housing free from the cabinet. The amount of flexibility in the cables may vary, and some users may have to remove the terminal block (hex bolts again) on the rear, and remove the acoustic wadding to gain flex in the cables.

There are three terminals on the tweeter, with push-fit spade connections. Green for Earth, red/black for signal. Disconnect these, pull tweeter forward, remove threaded rods.

Reassembly is the reversal of removal. Ensure all cables go in same places, etc. etc.

I brought a pair of tannoy sensys dc1 bookshelfs a couple of years back and always thought i needed an extra cable for the super tweeter as i saw wires for it else where. but lately as i went to sell them...


On the images on Google for them there are no extra wires. Where are the wires on them? Do all the drive units work?
If the wires are for the super tweeter. Then looking around at the Google images it should be possible to unscrew the 4 screws holding the tweeters on top and you should be able to push the wires back inside the unit, if they are not connected to anything. Or at least see where they do connect.

My Tannoy Reveal 6D Monitors are only outputting sound from the tweeters. I'm looking for troubleshooting suggestions.


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