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

If this is question, you need to have the speakers fed from a cross over network. This does several things. The most important is that it does not send the loud powerful signals to the tweeters, They cannot handle it. Also if you dont use a cross over network and the whole spectrum of audio goes to the woofer, it sounds bad.

Loud hiss on one channel


could be a bad cable or could be the high frequency control is turned up too high and the speaker without the hiss has a blown tweeter (high frequency driver), and you're trying to compensate for the lack of highs on the bad speaker by turning up the high frequency on the EQ, which makes the other speaker hiss.

Mackie SRM 450, the main speaker has stopped working but the tweeter is OK, there is nothing coming from the speaker at all, no hiss, or clicks.


It could be 2 things:

*Blown Speaker or,
*Fried power amp output stage of woofer, since this speaker operates as a bi-amplified system it has separate amps for woofer/tweeter...

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.

I have a couple active phobic loud speakers, one is completely out of commission and won't play anything. The other will play sound but only through the tweeter, while the speaker itself does nothing. I...


The tweeter is working but the woofer driver isn't which will change the impedance (ac resistance) of your amplifier output. The other speaker isn't working which will again, change the impedance even more. This could eventually damage the I.C. amps should you apply too much volume to the speakers.
You can turn the volume up to normal listening level and with your finger, slightly press the cone on the woofer in and out a couple of time. Does it engage in sound when you do this? If so, the woofer's coil is damaged and the woofer must be replaced. No sound? Open up the speaker (stereo off) and make sure both wires are fully secured to the woofer. Should they be attached securely, your woofer is probably defective. Should you have a crossover network, you can obtain a good, known working woof and temporarily wire it where the old woofer goes, turn on your stereo (minimal volume) which can verify the network pcb (crossover) is working.

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.
