New Products From Tannoy
Tannoy has launched two new in-wall speakers, and the new i7 Contour full range installation loudspeaker.

The in-wall products integrate the company’s highly-regarded cabinet-based speaker technology into a flush-mountable format. Designed to provide value for money, ease of installation and high performance, the new speakers are suitable for music and film playback, multimedia and teleconferencing applications in boardrooms, themed visitor attractions, shops and residential installations. The powerful m2iw is a two-way system with a 165mm (6.5") long-throw mid/bass driver, 25mm (1") soft dome HF unit and onboard crossover. The design offers the assurance of long-term reliability combined with excellent sound quality.

The high-performance S8iw features a Tannoy 200mm (8") Dual Concentric constant directivity driver with an integral crossover network to provide superior clarity, fidelity and natural vocal articulation over a wide area. Avoiding the use of potentially flexible plastic mouldings, both models incorporate a discreet, laminated MDF baffle panel, which provides the best structural integrity and can be painted to blend with any environment.In addition, a secure four-clamp mounting system allows simple installation and a robust termination block is used to provide optimum input signal integrity.

The new i7 Contour full range installation loudspeaker (pictured) is designed for high quality music and speech reinforcement in applications where wide yet controlled coverage is required. Housed in a slimline cabinet allowing discreet vertical or horizontal mounting close to a wall or ceiling, the i7 is ideal for discreet aesthetic and space-conscious applications including foreground music and public address systems in installations such as churches, sports facilities, theme bars, visitor attractions, boardrooms and convention centres. Tannoy’s i7 Contour uses four 4" bass drivers and a single dome HF driver, and exhibits dispersion characteristics of 70 degrees vertical and 110 degrees horizontal. In addition, the i7 features a built-in THP 60 low insertion loss transformer, resulting in a more dynamic performance with extended bandwidth, and has rear panel switching for low impedance (8ohm) or 70/100V line use. A fine-perforation steel grille provides good protection for loudspeakers used in public areas. An optional MB7 yoke bracket enables easy mounting and the i7 comes with a five-year guarantee.
