Thank you!

Dimensions are 94H 28W 31D. The drivers are all 8" (200mm) diameter. There's a separate chamber of about 7L for the top driver (which is dual concentric so is midrange + tweeter), the remainder (about 47L) for the bass - two units in parallel.

The cabs are made from OSB (Oriented Strand Board, sometimes known as Sterling board), used a lot in the construction industry, with oak strips for the trim and 25mm dowels for internal bracing. I will post some graphs when I get it all sorted out...
 

Always loved that Tannoy Dual Concentric driver... A true Gem from the Tannoy UK Driver development team... Wish they would have kept that team together... So many cooler products could have come from this office... :-( Does Tannoy still has an R&D in UK or it's all back to Music Tribe/Behringer?

@devteam yes, the DC drivers are excellent. As far as I can tell there is still some manufacturing in Scotland and R&D in Manchester, but I could be wrong.

Good Afternoon All thank you for your interest and encouragement . Today was for me a very big day after being out of commission for four months my three way active system was finally back in place . Turning it on for the first time in a while was nerve racking and when I slowly inched the volume up the fact it was playing music at low volume was a huge relief. Having then checked out each driver was working I was able to push the volume to normal listening levels and it not only worked but worked really well . So here is picture of it in place not very tidy I know but will post some pictures of it in place at the Wam Show room 103 and let you know if many others liked what I have done .

I can only imagine the relief... We've been making many multiway speakers over the years.. it's always the same feeling when things work in the end and you didn't miswire something and by mistake damaged a driver.. 

Great Job Ben! We look forward to hearing more!
