Tannoy dc speakers are built to very high tolerances. they are very easy to damage if taken apart so i suggest you contact a specialist tannoy service shop.
i know a shop in london who sells a lot of
vintage tannoy speakers and he says very few repair shops are capable of fixing these dc drivers. good luck

How many speakers can you connect to a tannoy s10

The question doesn't really make sense because a Tannoy S10 is a speaker. You can daisy chain as many speakers as you want. That's not the issue though. It's what load the amp sees that's the problem.

Most Hi-Fi speakers are a nominal (that means average) 6~8 Ohm load. However, the Impedance varies with frequency and phase. So at certain frequencies the amp will see a much higher load; maybe as much as 30 Ohms. At other points the load will drop to 3 or 4 ohms. The reason why your amp doesn't fry itself is that music contains a wide range of frequencies, so the load is made up of lots of different slices of impedance all summed together.

If you start to add extra speakers on to an amp then one of two things will happen. Either they'll be wired in series; in which case the Ohms load will increase by the addition of the speaker impedances e.g. 8 Ohm + 8 Ohm = 16 Ohms pre channel. Or the impedance will be reduced because the speakers are wired in parallel (1/8 + 1/8)inverse = 4 Ohms.

16 Ohms is about on the limit of what a very good Hi-Fi amp could drive. But the volume will be reduced and the amp will go into distortion much earlier.

4 Ohms is a much bigger problem. The impedance swings will dip dangerously low to the point where the amp sees the speaker load as a short across the terminals. At that point the amp will dump a whole load of current into the speakers, thus frying the voice coils and burning itself out. That ends with a small puff of smoke and a very large repair bill.

If you want a system louder then you have to add more amps and more speakers. Simply piling speakers on to an existing amp won't do it. You're spreading the amplifier power more thinly because of the extra load, so each speaker ends up being quieter.

Paper jam 2 scx 4200Hello, my Samsung scx-4200 had a paper feed problem.When i try to print 1 page of something, the printer takes 1 paper, and then continues to take paper after the first and then there...

Try this, inside the printer, normally when you open the case/ink port, you see all the paper feeding gears and rollers. You really don't have to be a tech for this, just make sure there are not any flakes/small pieces of paper inside. This is when its good to have a can of compressed air, available at many electronic stores, and "blow" out the dust/paper. This helped with my printer. Also, make sure all the paper feed areas are lined up and working. Watch how far the paper feeds into the printer, then look what is at that point in the printer. Best Wishes, CD

Little fingers have made an impresion in (or should I say flattened) my tweeter foil. Is there an easy way to replace this or fix it? Waiting for an answer as I only just got it for a completion to my...

try to use some really sticky tape, press gently to foil and pull out. retry until you got the best result but do not expect it will be like new it was before, effectively it is a nice feature, your speaker is modded by kid... :)
kind regards

Tannoy saturn s8 speaker had with me for 5yrs,how long do you think that it will last even though I well take care of them

If you take care of your speakers, it may give you good service for another 8 to 10 years. The working of a speaker depends on the condition of diaphragm and voice coil of the speaker.
If speaker is not overdriven(given more audio level than its power rating), kept free from moisture and diaphragm is prevented from damage, then speaker will work for 10-15 (even more) year with out any trouble.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Rating answer will encourage me.
