The Westminster GR represents the crowning achievement in the Prestige Gold Reference Series and sets a new benchmark for high performance music reproduction. The magnificent 530 litre compound horn loudspeaker is a culmination of over 60 years of Tannoy's Dual Concentric driver evolution and the company are rightly immensely proud of the speaker's power-handling, real-world dynamics and incredible musical articulation capabilities. Within the beautifully fashioned Westminster GR cabinet, the 15" Dual Concentric driver exceeds an 18 Hz to 27kHz frequency response while boasting 99 dB efficiency and 700 watt peak power handling. Key to the Westminster Royal GR Driver is revised material for the main 15 inch cone and a new 50 mm (2 inch diaphragm for the HF compression driver. The LF/MF cone material remains a paper-pulp base with fibres introduced into the mix to improve the stiffness to weight ratio. While previous flagship Duals were stiffened with natural capoc fibres, the Gold Reference Duals integrate a synthetic fibre that delivers more uniformed mechanical integrity across the entire surface area of the cone. The result is effortless LF performance with outstanding speed and dynamic attack.
At the heart of the Westminster Royal GR Dual, the new 2 inch compression driver uses an aluminium-magnesium alloy dome. The diaphragm is terminated with a Mylar surround, delivering a technically and subjectively significant upgrade over the previous Prestige HF units. Delivering exceptional clarity and articulation throughout the HF range the new unit gives Westminster Royal GR even greater naturalness and presence.
The massive Westminster Royal GR crossover is meticulously hand-made and comprises some of the finest audio components available today. Tannoy's bespoke ICW ClarityCap MR capacitors, low loss laminated core inductors and thick-film resistors are hard-wired into the crossover with silver plated cable and high-silver content solder.
The glorious Westminster Royal GR cabinet is hand built from the finest birch plywood, each cabinet weighing close to 140 kg when finished. The complex, compound horn design and curved front baffle allow the 15 inch Dual to ‘breath’ like no other Prestige model, delivering truly real-world dynamics and musical integrity. The luxury oiled-wood walnut veneer on panels and inlays, the gold trim and return of the classic Tannoy lightning strike logo exude the regal class of bespoke furniture.
The Westminster Royal GR delivers musical engagement with the same breath-taking scale as its visual splendour. It is an effortlessly capable loudspeaker set to become a true Tannoy classic.
