Tannoy Arden


The Arden features a 15" HPD 385A driver with Girdacoustic reinforced cone mounted in a real wood veneered particle board cabinet.

The system is front recess mounted to avoid tunnel and diffraction effects.

The HPD integrated drive system consists of a direct radiator bass unit and a high frequency compression driver, both located concentrically within the same frame and magnet assembly.

The Arden is braced internally to reduce spurious resonances which can occur in large panel areas.

Mine have the later and less popular 3828 driver but are brilliant speakers. Loads of well defined bass (EBS alignment), brilliant imaging and soundstage due to the point source driver. Lower mid can be a bit harsh at times but can be fixed with aftermarket XO. Paid AUD1200 - bargain




Many thanks: Department interesting and useful
