The Eclipse Three employs a D’Appolito driver configuration, usually only found on much more affluent loudspeaker designs. By placing the tweeter centrally between the two bass/mid drivers, the speaker’s dispersion characteristics are smoothed through the critical crossover region. The result is a highly articulate musical performance on or off the loudspeaker’s main axis, eliminating the room’s traditional ‘sweet spot’ and delivering peak performance across more seats in your listening room.
Backing up the class-leading sound-staging with real world dynamic scale, the Eclipse Three is tremendously efficient at 90 dB / Watt and boasts 240 Watt peak power handling. The larger cabinet and twin mid/bass driver configuration deliver outstanding low frequency response, with bass reproduction down to an earth-shaking 38 Hz… lower than many manufacturer’s budget subwoofers!
The Eclipse Three’s braced cabinet, two-part plinth for additional stability and audiophile components add to up to a truly class leading loudspeaker design finished with equally premium touches. From the robust gold-plated speaker terminals to the 8-bolt driver mounting, subtle trim detailing and satin black oak finish, The Eclipse Three sets new standards for budget loudspeakers in both performance and looks.
Tannoy’s proven heavyweight fibreboard cabinet design is employed in the Eclipse series. Internally braced to minimise cabinet colouration, they can deliver tighter, more tuneful bass. The cabinets are also rear ported to assist deep bass reproduction and keep the front baffle's clean lines.
The 5" Eclipse mid/bass driver offerS unrivalled midband clarity and low frequency performance in its class. The cone is crafted from a light, stiff multi-fibre enriched paper pulp, coated to improved detailing and offering exceptional transient response to give rhythmic music realistic drive and punch.
The 1.1" silk dome tweeter chosen for its accuracy and detail is coated with a layer of nitro-urethane damping which serves to move the ‘break-up’ frequency much further outside the human range of hearing. Providing high frequency performance which is supremely accurate with smooth top-end extension out to over 32 kHz
Eclipse crossovers include laminated core inductors for exceptional musical detailing. Tannoy’s unique differential materials technology compound is used to damp micro vibrations on the polypropylene capacitors, further enhancing Eclipse’s musicality and communication.
The Eclipse range is finished to exceptional standards throughout. Finished in dark yet cool satin black oak and equipped with robust gold-plated speaker terminals, Eclipse leaves other budget loudspeakers in the shade.
A dedicated plinth is provided on floorstanding models providing stability and ensuring fast and taut low frequency performance. This is further enhanced with adjustable floor spikes for precise levelling of the speaker cabinet without damage to carpets.
