Tannoy Mercury 7C Centre seamlessly integrates with basic 5.1 channel surround systems delivering crystal clear dialogue and focused central vocals for multichannel music. It can be paired with Mercury 7.2 for fronts and 7.1 on rears for a simple set up. It is available in the same Mercury 7 range finishes; walnut, light oak or black oak luxury wood grain to cosmetically match the entire series.
To make the latest generation of Mercury even better than the award-winning Mercury Vi series required completely new driver designs. The horizontal loudspeaker packs two 127mm mid/bass drivers and the Mercury 7 28mm tweeter in a rear-ported 6.2 litre cabinet. The new fitted Mercury 7 mid/bass drivers are significantly larger than previous models, enabling them to deliver deeper bass with greater punch than any competitor design.
The Mercury 7 cone uses an updated version of Tannoy’s proprietary multi-fibre cone material with a smoothly sculpted profile for better dispersion and more accurate midrange reproduction. The light and stiff cone delivers fast, tight bass while the new computer optimised rubber surround provides exceptionally high excursion without over-damping the cone.
The new Mercury 7 tweeter uses a soft woven polyester dome that is coated to Tannoy’s exacting specification with a micro layer of nitro-urethane. This special lamination process damps the dome and pushes its break-up frequencies far beyond the audio range. The treble is smooth and detailed with an extended frequency response to over 32 kHz.
Mercury 7 cabinets are the series’ most acoustically neutral enclosures to date. By creating a rigid, low resonant foundation for the drivers, has always been the starting point for Mercury models, ensuring reduced cabinet colouration giving a natural and more spacious sound.
Throughout the signal path, Mercury 7 benefits from technologies trickled down from Tannoy’s high-performance and luxury speaker ranges. The crossovers employ close tolerance components throughout, including low-loss laminated iron core inductors for seamless integration between drivers. Internal wiring is silver-plated Oxygen Free Copper and speaker terminals utilise Tannoy custom designed gold-plated binding posts.
240W peak power handling and 91 dB/Watt efficiency means it is equally suited to potent Mercury 7 surround sound set-up using Mercury 7.4 at the front and multiples pairs of Mercury 7.1 or 7.2 at the sides and rear of the listening room. 32Hz upper frequency extension makes Mercury 7C capable of getting the best from High Resolution multichannel audio while its 62Hz bass response is an ideal match for typical AV receiver bass management systems.
The new cabinets also boast extensive use of Tannoy’s Differential Materials Technology (DMT) compound. Used in critical areas, such as driver to cabinet interface and crossover component mounts, this high tech material damps unwanted vibrations and further reduce colouration. As with DMT application in Tannoy’s luxury and Prestige loudspeaker ranges, the treatment delivers a crisper, more open sound with enhanced detail and micro-dynamics.
