Hi, I have joined the Tannoy yahoo group but don't know how to find any discussion going on or any forum. When I visit the site it greets me by name but thats it, there are no posts to look at. I have clicked on anything thats clickable but no luck. I tried emailing the group but have had no response. What am I doing wrong.

I joined Yahoo Tannoy group.
Before I joined I had minimal spam 1 to 6 a day.

About three weeks after joining I was getting over 50 spam a day.
Rising to 80 a day when that rogue isp was shut down a few weeks back.

Leaving yahoo did not stop the spam, the damage was done.

I suspect the spammers have found a way to access the addresses in yahoo, but yahoo refuse to acknowledge they have a problem.

I've been on the Yahoo Tannoy group for years and never saw an increase in the amount of spam.


To the OP, did you try clicking on messages?

Just about any question you have was probably covered already, so I would advise using the search feature first, it works very well.

I really can't get into the yahoo site. On the left hand side of the page under 'members only' where messages,post,files etc are listed will not open. Hovering the mouse over messages I don't get the little hand with the pointing finger that opens stuff. Trying the search feature cycles through and returns to the same page where nothing can be opened. Previously I opened 'join now' and completed and complied with all requests which appears to be OK because the page opens and greets me by name but thats it. Can't get any further and its frustrating.

Maybe your membership is still pending approval?

What's your question, maybe someone here can help you?

Hi Face
It was over a month ago I attempted to join.
I have a pair of Lancaster cabs with 15" monitor golds which sound dull and uninvolving. I am busy rebuilding the crossover as I found some of the inductors way off value. Also doing away with the switching. While the speakers are stripped I thought of somehow improving them and its for this reason I wanted to get onto a forum just to pick up on general consensus for a good cab. What I do to the Lancaster will be a temporary measure, with a complete new build once I am happy with results.
I thought of extending the bottom of the cab to get the speaker up to ear height and possibly porting it at the same time. Good or bad idea, how much extra volume, sealed or ported, what size port, how much stuffing etc.

are both drivers operating in the dual concentric?

raising the box above the floor does reduce the "boom" that affects male voice.

Going to vented suits these drivers, read up on it. Big boxes seem to perform a lot better.
I built a 100l for hpd (copy of Berkley) and used it for years. The 200l Arden sounds much better.
There is a website describing the build of a 300l box and he loves it.

Hi AndrewT,

Your suggestion to read up on it is exactly the reson for this thread. My first post complains that I can't reach the yahoo tannoy group. I would really like to read up, but where and how

Yours in frustration
