Tannoy Prestige Westminster GR (Gold Reference) speakers are the crowning achievement in the Prestige range, the latest version of Tannoy's flagship loudspeaker.
Westminster GR feature hand built traditional horn-loaded enclosures with the latest technological innovations in acoustical engineering.
At the heart of the Westminster Royal GR Dual, the new 50mm 2” HF compression driver uses an aluminium-magnesium alloy dome heat treated to Tannoy’s exact specifications. The diaphragm is terminated with a Mylar surround, delivering a technically and subjectively significant upgrade over the previous Prestige HF units. Exceptional clarity and articulation throughout the HF range create even greater naturalness and presence.
Dual Concentric Drivers
The 15” (380mm) Dual Concentric drive units are a natural but significant evolution of the classic 15” Dual, and incorporate an Alnico magnet system with an integral computer designed and manufactured reverse throat high-frequency PepperPot WaveGuide for exceptional transient response and increased sensitivity.
The massive Westminster Royal GR crossover is meticulously hand-made by Tannoy engineers and comprises the finest audio components available today. Tannoy’s bespoke ICW ClarityCap MR capacitors, low loss laminated core inductors and thick-film resistors are hard-wired into the crossover with silver plated cable and high silver content solder.
A 'hard edge’ cone surround and unique chassis earthing system deliver tight, fast and controlled bass with fluid and transparent midrange and high-frequency performance of great purity. Within the Westminster Royal GR cabinet, the new driver exceeds an 18Hz to 27kHz frequency response while boasting 99dB efficiency and 700W peak power handling.
Room Filling Sound
The magnificent 530 litre cabinet with the complex horn loading system delivers greatly increased efficiency with a wavefront area approaching that from real instruments. Effortlessly capable of resolving truly low frequencies and the reproduction of the dramatic dynamic range of musical instruments with stunning realism, this is a true Tannoy classic. The design sets a new benchmark for high-performance music reproduction and owes much of its evolution to TANNOY’s Kingdom Royal development project.
The LF/MF cone material remains a paper-pulp base with fibres introduced into the mix to improve the stiffness to weight ratio. While previous flagship Duals were stiffened with natural capoc fibres, the Gold Reference Duals integrate a bespoke Tannoy synthetic fibre that delivers more uniformed mechanical integrity across the entire cone surface area. The result is effortless LF performance with outstanding speed and dynamic attack.
Breath-taking All Around
With its new 15” Dual, DCT crossover and new terminal panel featuring latest WBT NextGen WBT-0703 speaker posts, musical engagement is delivered on the same breath-taking scale as visual splendour. With Tannoy’s High Frequency Power Switch for fine tuning output and a matching woven-cloth grille, Westminster Royal GR can be integrated into a wide range of rooms and décor. It is an effortlessly capable loudspeaker that honours the decades of Dual Concentric technology.
The glorious Westminster Royal GR cabinet is hand built from the finest birch plywood by Tannoy’s most experienced cabinet makers. The complex, compound horn design and curved front baffle allow the 15” Dual to ‘breath’ like no other Prestige model, delivering truly realistic dynamics and musical integrity. The luxury oiled-wood walnut veneer on panels and inlays, the gold trim and return of the classic Tannoy lightning strike logo exude the regal class of bespoke furniture. Beautifully finished in walnut to the finest standard, these will be cherished for generations to come.
