The Ellipse 10 Passive from Tannoy is a 3-way passive monitor that offers an exceptional frequency response of 42Hz to 40kHz, ideal for wideband monitoring in mixing studios, broadcasting control
rooms, or post-production facilities. A 10" Dual Concentric driver provides low and midrange tones, while the 1" Dual Concentric tweeter provides crisp, natural treble. The monitor has a
precision engineered elliptical enclosure that reduces internal standing waves.
Other features include calibrated crossover points and drive levels for a flat frequency response, and Wideband Technology that allows you to take advantage of the qualities of high-definition audio. The monitor has front bass ports to help extend the low frequency response, and can also deliver exceptional clarity and warmth, even when driven at high SPL levels.

Domestic Hi-Fi required smaller cabinets in the 80's and so a smaller 10" unit with a revolutionary Polyolefin vacuum formed cone piston was developed with very low coloration, high compliance and power handling and wide dispersion and launched in 1978 as a replacement to the Arden - Eaton range: T225 Mayfair, T185 Dorset, T165 Chester and T145 Ascot all using 2528 Dual Concentric drivers.
Tannoy dual concentric drivers have always been very expensive to make
(12 quality control stamps for each 10"/12" driver); in manufacturing process 24-27% of drivers did not meet strict Tannoy specification and were recycled
Dual concentric Tannoy are the speakers of choice for Royal Family of England and mean proper reproduction of music with time and phase correct design
8 Ohms, 60 W, sensitivity = 90 dB
Net weight/size: 30 lbs at 19 x 13 1/2 x 10" each
Pepper-pot holes are perfect (important for connoisseur)
T145 like clean power and can be used as studio monitors, like JBL Pro
Great where larger Cheviot or Berkeley will not fit; same sound quality
Exceptionally musical performance when driven by proper amp
(Vintage, hi-end Marantz, Sansui, Pioneer etc. recommended)
