Tannoy... nice. Made locally, too. BTW, what were those speakers in the hangover pic by your computer -- they looked excellent.

Curses upon my crappy Altec Lansings! Laurels bestowed upon my PSBs!

Depends on the model, the Reveals really only go down to 80Hz, then after that its a 24dB/Octave cutoff. The port on the back helps a bit down to about 60Hz and if you corner them you can get an extra 3dB per octave. In other words, you are only imagining any REAL bass (well we get harmonics of sub-bass, but we also imagine we hear it too .. there are many interesting books on sub-auditory perception). In any case you will never get true sub-bass out of a cone less than 8 inches in diameter.

Hearing the Tannoy's for the first time is a spine tingling experience. I had tears in my eyes listening to my reference CD's at Steve's in Toronto.

"Imagine you hear sub-bass,
it's easy if you try!
No weak-ass low end,
The kind that makes you cry..

Imagine all the techno,
kicking you in the chest,
Hoo hoo, hooo hoooo.."

I've got a pair of Tannoy reveals as well in my studio. Very nice. I turn on my sub woofer when DJing there for some extra bass.

Actually Todd, from the hangover snap, those look like the exact same speakers I have (right down to the colour).

Good set of speakers there Derek! Used to mix with those when I first started out, which could very well explain my poor hearing these days!

It's close to 31Hz...

Hey oddmyth -- if you don't mind me asking, what kind of price did you get your sub for? I'm looking at adding the sub to my setup (I've got 2 sets of the Reveal Actives going) and want to know what a decent price is. :)

I got mine through a friend of mine who used to work at Tannoy, but I didn't get that much of a deal. They retail for about $550, and I got mine for $575 tax incl.

You wouldn't believe the difference you hear in the low end with the sub, its so transparent and clean, you think you don't even have this puppy under your desk!!

Cheers
