Kingdom Royal is a flagship loudspeaker representing the sum of TANNOY’s rich heritage, cutting-edge technical innovation and world renowned acoustic engineering. A true no-compromise design, Kingdom Royal brings together reference components, a radical cabinet and the finest quality materials throughout. From the high gloss wood veneer and Italian leather trim to the all-new Dual Concentric driver with its 3 inch HF dome and compression motor, every component represents the pinnacle of materials technology and the summit of TANNOY’s technical excellence. The result is unsurpassed acoustic performance, ultra-low colouration, incredibly high efficiency (96 dB/Watt), stunning power handling (1200 Watts peak) and musical integrity unmatched by any other loudspeaker on the market today.
The sum of TANNOY’s rich heritage, cutting-edge technical innovation and world renowned acoustic engineering.
Kingdom Royal is a true four-way design offering unrivalled extension and linearity from sub-bass (below 20 Hz) to ultra-high frequencies (over 50 kHz). At its heart is an all-new 12 inch Dual Concentric drive unit that develops TANNOY’s long established DC technology to the limits of modern materials and current engineering technology. The new Kingdom Royal 12 inch Dual Concentric driver is the most advanced coaxial HF/LF driver TANNOY has ever developed. With a new chassis and 10-point fixing, the outer bass/mid driver section mates a revolutionary ultra-light multi-fibre cone and copper clad aluminium edge wound voice coil to a massive ferrite motor system. Its hard edge roll surround has extremely low memory effect which further improves articulation in the mid and upper bass. The crossover to the DC’s high frequency unit occurs at an exceptionally low 700 Hz to ensure the majority of the vocal region is handled by the new tweeter. This HF drive unit couples a 3 inch heat tempered aluminium alloy dome and waveguide with a 1.5 kg ferrite motor.
The Kingdom Royal cabinet delivers stunning visual form derived from its no compromise function. The massive curve-sided cabinet is constructed from machined high-density fibreboard and birch plywood sourced from cooler, slow growing regions of the world for its superior density and acoustic properties. Built with both vertically laminated sections (the inner fibre-loaded board) and horizontally laminated sections (the outer birch-ply hardwood) and braced with TANNOY’s DMT, the cabinet is incredibly rigid despite the immense panel areas. This engineering technique has afforded a very stiff enclosure with high internal volume that allows the deepest bass notes to expand naturally into the room. The Kingdom Royal necessitated the largest crossover TANNOY has ever produced, being a double-decked design built on boards as wide as the cabinet interior.
"Many brands and types of component were auditioned and rejected before the final configuration."
