Pair of 15 Inch Tannoy Arden


Pair of 15 inch Tannoy Arden

Top of the mid 1970’s Tannoy HPD range, here is a classic pair of Mk1 Tannoy Ardens, containing original 15 inch Tannoy Dual Concentric HPD 385A drivers.

The enclosures are in very nice condition, with just some minor little blemishes which are clearly visible in the pictures. Most importantly the drivers are in excellent condition and having been re-coned by Lockwood a few years ago, are in full & perfect working order - with perfect cones and excellent surrounds.

As you can see in picture 13, the original owner has fitted castors, so they can be easily moved. These castors can be left in place or removed as their new owner wishes.

The following information is from the excellent hifiengine.com website:-
The Arden features a 15" HPD 385A driver with Girdacoustic reinforced cone mounted in a real wood veneered particle board cabinet. The system is front recess mounted to avoid tunnel and diffraction effects. The HPD integrated drive system consists of a direct radiator bass unit and a high frequency compression driver, both located concentrically within the same frame and magnet assembly. The Arden is braced internally to reduce spurious resonances which can occur in large panel areas.
