Question about Tannoy Reveal 6D Speaker

1 Answer

Pop and Hissing after turning on Tannoy 6D

When I power up one of my Tannoys, first of all there is a semi loud pop, the woofer driver sucks in and the tweeter makes a hissing sound. The othe one is just fine no problems. Doesnt not matter if the input is plugged in or not, it continues to make this sound. Also, the speaker does not emit any input sound at all from either driver. Only 6 months old, no power spikes could have occured, very dissapointed customer.
Any ideas appreciated.

    I have the same problem, the pop, then hiis and no other sound, what is actually wrong with the unit?

    Mine are out of warranty and, I am now looking to buy new monitors as i feel a repair will be costly and they will never be the same?

    Thanks in advance

It happens, don't be upset. Call Tannoy and get an RMA # . They will repair under warranty. When you get it back it will be as good as new. Rob

Power sub woofer is not working on my pioneer vsx-81txv everything is working all the speakers except the power sub connection at the back all i can hear is the hissing sound when i try to connect the sub...


Hissing? How loud? A sub isn't even capable of making high frequency sounds at normal volumes.

The Pioneer manual would tell you how to enable and test the subwoofer output.
Page 17 and the MACCV procedures on Page 33 (auto) or 43 (manual)

Recently lost both tweeters in my Reveal 6-D's.Got replacements and highs are back after an easy install.While testing the speakers I noticed a '' plop '' when the woofer travels extensively with heavier...


Hmm, what killed the tweeters? Over-exuberant operation? What's going on with your amp? Is it being pushed into stress or distortion? THAT will kill a speaker faster than clean high power.

My Tannoy 6d monitor doesn't produce any sound


Hiya, i assume for now that you mean the 16dip switch. If i remember correctly it is solder directly to board (could be wrong). If you are comfortable with doing this, it will need to be opened and resoldered probably for dry joints. If not then suggest hunting out a friend with some solder experience. A word of caution though, shorting out solder tracks etc could result in damage so only do it if you are comfortable. If the dry joints are really bad (sound like they are) you should be able to see them clearly and resolder (look for not so bright and shiny solder that looks cracked. Magnifier helps)

Hope that helps

One possibility is that the mute switches on your speakers have oxydized contacts INSIDE the switch - this kind of malfunction mostly occurs when the equipment is exposed to moisture and/or smog.

The most common solution is to change both switches, but they can also be disassembled and cleaned up (which is a bit more complicated and time consuming).

Another possibility is a dried up filter capacitor in the power supply or somewhere in the preamplifier section, possibly also a bad preamplifier chip but if your speakers work fine (with the exception of the mute switch noise), then the problem is more likely with the switches.

Also, check the internal connectors for any dirt, broken wires or desoldered pins.

Could also be something else, you should know i'm only assuming on the possibilities and i'm listing the most common problems i've encountered so far.

One of a pair of tannoy 6 D studio monitors went out with a loud buzz and now does nothing when I turn it on. No LED light ? No Sound.


Speakers don't cause a loud buzz but amplifiers do. Is it possible that the input to the amp lost it's ground? Regardless, this is not why the speaker does nothing but you would want to correct any amplifier problem before hooking up another speaker. If as you say, absolutely nothing happens it is possible that you blew out the voice coil of one of the drivers but blowing out both the woofer and tweeter simultaneously would be unusual, not to mention that Tannoys can take quite a bit of guff. So the next possibility is that there is a problem internally with the crossover or,and I doubt that it exists, and internal fuse associated with it. Since there is an LED (and I don't know what purpose it serves) there has to be some sort of power supply (fused?) to activate it. It could be derived from the audio output of the amp but it would then pulse on and off rather than just be constantly on. Getting inside the unit with an ohmmeter would quickly determine what's going on but I don't know how this can be meaningfully diagnosed at arms length and therefore just can give you some generic ideas.

My Tannoy Reveal 6D Monitors are only outputting sound from the tweeters. I'm looking for troubleshooting suggestions.


I still suggest calling Tannoy, They are usually very reasonable and will give you a fair price to service a very good product

Sub woofer making a screaching loud noise when powered on


The pop from other electrical items makes me think it's a ground problem but I am do not have a clue as to what type of setup you are running over there. Did you try a surge protector?Is it 110volts with a seperate ground wire?
Have you tried running a UPS?
