Tannoy K2558 T&S parameters


Below are my latest measurements on my personal 10" Dual-Concentric Tannoy K2558.
They are living in sealed Dover cabinets (1981)
I used the latest Woofertester 2 Ver 5.00, the original Smith & Larson's software.


 

For the first time, I used the sealed box method.
It seems to me that the measurements are more accurate than with the added-mass one or efficiency one.
You need to build a sealed box but it's worth doing it.
I tried the three methods proposed by Messrs. Smith and Larson.
When using the sealed box method, the calculation of Vas is less random.
