Pair of 10 inch Tannoy T185 Dorset

Classic Tannoy Dual Concentric drivers

Dating from the mid to late 70’s, these classic Tannoy loudspeakers are in full and glorious working order, sounding just as they should. Very close serial numbers so these are an original factory matched pair.

Cosmetic condition is pretty good. The cones and rubber surrounds are fine. There are a few little insignificant blemishes on the real wood veneer but nothing really nasty (see close-up pictures).
