Tannoy Westminster GR
The crowning achievement in the Prestige Gold Reference series and the culmination of many decades of Dual Concentric driver evolution, Tannoy is immensely proud of the Westminster Royal Gold Reference. This magnificent 530 litre compound horn loudspeaker is a true statement of the art of acoustic reproduction in the home, blending class-leading power handling, real-world dynamics and musical articulation like no other speaker available today. The design sets a new benchmark for high performance music reproduction and owes much of its evolution to Tannoy’s Kingdom Royal development project. The new 380mm (15.00”) Dual Concentric driver is a natural but significant evolution of the classic 15” Dual, improving on every aspect of its performance both technically and subjectively. Within the Westminster Royal GR cabinet, the new driver exceeds an 18Hz to 27kHz frequency response while boasting 99dB efficiency and 700watt peak power handling.
Key to the Westminster Royal GR Driver is revised material for the main 15in cone and a new 50mm (2.00”) diaphragm for the HF compression driver. The LF/MF cone material remains a paper-pulp base with fibres introduced into the mix to improve the stiffness to weight ratio. While previous flagship Duals were stiffened with natural capoc fibres, the Gold Reference Duals integrate a bespoke Tannoy synthetic fibre that delivers more uniformed mechanical integrity across the entire surface area of the cone. The result is effortless LF performance with outstanding speed and dynamic attack.
At the heart of the Westminster Royal GR Dual, the new 2” compression driver uses an aluminium-magnesium alloy dome heat treated to Tannoy’s exacting specifications. The diaphragm is terminated with a Mylar™ surround, delivering a technically and subjectively significant upgrade over the previous Prestige HF units. Delivering exceptional clarity and articulation throughout the HF range the new unit gives Westminster Royal GR even greater naturalness and presence.
