Tannoy VX12 Box designs
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hello everyone. I have recently aquired these speakers at a price I simply could not turn down (150 for the pair!). Now, I knew beforehand that they were really designed to be used with some sort of low frequency reinforcement, and I am hoping to acheive this by building new enclosures for them.

I have previously build enclosures before, not least the awesome Sachiko back loaded horn for the Fostex206E. So, my question would be does anyone one have any suggestions and / or experience that they would like to share? I will be contacting Tannoy in an attempt to get the Thiel-Small parameters in due course. In the meantime, the mids and highs of this driver are simply awesome and I am very happy with them.

Many thanks, Steve (aquapiranha)

I don’t know about this specific dual concentric but it seems you got a steal. The miniOnken i designed for the 12” Gold was about the same size of a bit smaller.

Hi Dave, and thanks for the reply! I have spoken to you before but it was a long time ago! I am looking for something to add a bit of weight at the bottom end as currently the cabinet is restricting the lower registers. The treble and mid are amazing though! I have requested the TS details from Tannoy but i am not holding my breath. I was hoping for a narrow, taller design so I do not need to use stands, and less visual impact too.

The box i designed for the 12” gold was as large as i could make it using the measured T/S. It was probably tuned a bit high or wasd a bit small if it was based on factory specs. It certainly provided significant bass impact.

Thanks Dave. I don't doubt the ability of these drivers given the right enclosure. I will have hope that Tannoy provide the details so that I can use them to get box type / dimensions, that is if course if I can understand whatever software one would use do so! 😂😁

You will never get low bass out of those but those are very nice drivers.

With that in mind I would put them into small(ish) sealed cabs and use dedicated woofers to run them 3way.

Hi and thanks for the reply. What makes you think I wouldn't get any bass out of them in a different cabinet? Is there something about the drivers I am missing? Thanks, Steve

Estimated F10 of our miniOnken for the 12” gold is in the low 30s.

What this one will do awaits T/S parameters.

I only hope Tannoy can / will supply them.
