an accident happened while I pull up the driver. the magnet (has a sticky material at the bottom of it) so it`s drag up the diaphragm while pulling up the driver from the box. I assembled everything back, but, the Dual concentric not working as expected. do i need to get a new one? is there any way to fix it? best regards Vick

Re: Tannoy Saturn s10 Dual concentric problem
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

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.
The fuse of my TS1001 blew, because the MosFET IRF740, another IC, and the transformer were shorted.
Called Tannoy who were not helpful and asked me to get to their authorised reseller/agent, as you cannot purchase parts directly from Tannoy. The agent obviously added a mark-up on the part.
Cutting long story short, I purchased the amplifier board for a TS801 to fit in my TS1001 because the BASH amplifier for TS1001 is no longer available/manufactured. The sizes of the amplifier plate were similar although the TS801 is 200W with 8" driver and the TS1001 is 300W with 10" driver.
I am now using a 200W amplifier with my TS1001 (Works well with the 10" driver).
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... :)
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.
ho i got a AS that did that im NOT saying it will work with yours but if you open it up and replace the fuses with new ones it should work i reakon you have blown the sound fuses and not the power fuse hope it helps m8 and like i said it might NOT work
You may be able to pull them out using tape. That is sellotape then gently pull .They should pop out like a dented car panel. My understanding is these domes really protect moving coil from dust so should not affect sound. Worst case swop the tweeter. Ive just bought a pair of revolution 3 with same "fault" so I will let you know how I get on .I am in Electronics trade as profession. It may be possible to gently remove dome using a surgical blade then popping out and gluing on with PVA / Latex glue coloured with black ink if you dont like white appearance.
It is sometimes possible to pull out using fine sewing needle push in then gently pull out as if removing a spell from your finger.
