LOUDSPEAKERS

TANNOY

KINGDOM ROYAL CARBON BLACK

£51,995.00

Product description

Tannoy Kingdom Royal flagship speakers are an accumulation of the brand's rich heritage, cutting-edge innovation and world renowned acoustic engineering. A genuine no-compromise design, it merges a series of reference components, a new cabinet design and finest quality materials.

​

Premium Components

​

From high gloss wood veneer and Italian leather trim to 12" Dual Concentric driver with cryogenically treated 3" dome and compression motor, every component represents the highest grade of materials, engineering and technical excellence.

Pushing the boundaries of high-end loudspeakers to new levels, Kingdom Royal offers unsurpassed acoustic performance, ultra-low colouration, high efficiency and musical integrity unmatched by any other loudspeaker on the market today.

​

Curve-Sided Cabinet

​

Kingdom Royal cabinets deliver stunning visual form derived from a no compromise function. The massive curve-sided cabinet is constructed from machined high-density fibreboard and birch plywood sourced from cooler, slow growing regions for its superior density and acoustic properties. Built with both vertically (inner fibre-loaded board) and horizontally (outer birch-ply hardwood) laminated sections and braced with DMT, the cabinet is incredibly rigid despite the immense panel areas.

This engineering technique affords a very stiff enclosure with high internal volume that allows the deepest bass notes to expand naturally into the room. The cabinets are finished in wood as standard but is also available with carbon fibre backings and other premium grade materials. Please contact us to discuss your preferences and we can provide a quote and delivery estimate.

​

SuperTweeters

​

The sealed SuperTweeter enclosure is precision milled from a laminate of high-density fibreboard and acoustically separated from the main cabinet enclosure. Tuned and damped by a long process of measurement and audition, the SuperTweeter’s performance is further enhanced by a soft dispersion panel set in front of the housing. After trialling a number of synthetic and natural materials, soft Italian leather was selected as the acoustic dispersion panel of choice.

​

Crossovers

​

As a double-decked design built on boards as wide as the cabinet interior, Kingdom Royal necessitated the largest crossover Tannoy ever produced. The entire crossover is decoupled from the cabinet base using an innovative free-floating mounting system incorporating rubber suspension turrets and brass rods to separate the two layers.

Kingdom Royal benefits from Oyaide cable throughout from terminal panel to crossover to drivers and the LF board wiring itself; not forgetting the bi-wire links. Cables produced by Oyaide use PCOCC 6N copper (of 99.9999% purity) with no crystal boundaries, to accomplish a powerful yet delicate and natural, fast response throughout the signal path.

​

Accessories 

​

For manoeuvring each speaker is supplied on castors but steel cones on the speaker's underside can be coupled to substantial gold anodised aluminium feet in the final listening position. On the rear panel, the finest WBT binding posts are configured in Tannoy’s unique five terminal design for Bi-Wiring or Bi-Amping as well as direct grounding (via 5th terminal) for the chassis of the main drivers. Spare HF energy level control pins, spare SuperTweeter grille and six-nines pure copper bridging cables are supplied in a wooden presentation box.

​

Construction

​

Built over four years of extensive research and development, Tannoy left no aspect of the Kingdom Royal unchallenged. Adjustments for the Dual Concentric’s Tweeter and SuperTweeter energy levels are available using a new low-loss switching panel mounted on the front baffle.

​

Subtle, sophisticated and classically good looking with the heavyweight weave cloth grille in place, yet bold, imposing and dynamic with the grilles removed, the Kingdom Royal is a speaker that spans stylistic genres with ease. Built in Tannoy’s UK factory to the very best engineering and quality standards, each Kingdom Royal loudspeaker weighs 120kg.

​

Traditional Finish

​

Kingdom Royal’s top class build quality is complimented with a stunning finish that mixes textures and colours in a very contemporary evolution of Tannoy’s Prestige loudspeaker range. Traditional wood veneer side panels are finished in contemporary deep gloss lacquer, while the smooth black satin finish baffle complements the gold trim and natural Italian leather.
