The Cheviot is the highest summit in the Cheviot Hills, a range of rolling hills straddling the Anglo-Scottish border between Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. An ancient extinct volcano, its flat summit stands 815 metres (2674 ft) above sea level, making it England’s 35th highest mountain. Cheviot is also the name of a classic Tannoy loudspeaker, launched in 1974 by the prestigious British speaker company of more than 90 years in the business. Originating in 1926 in London as the Tulsemere Manufacturing Company, 1976 saw the company relocate to the Scottish town of Coatbridge where the company still manufacturers its higher-end speaker lines, with the Eclipse, Mercury and Revolution models being manufactured to rigorous standards in China.

One of the latest products to come from the Coatbridge facility is the three-strong Legacy range. These thoroughly modern reworks of three classic Tannoy models – the Eaton, Cheviot and Arden – were developed closely following the original design while cleverly incorporating the advancements in loudspeaker design accrued over the last 40 years. Hand made and finished to a high standard by skilled engineers in Scotland, each model features a walnut veneered cabinet of 19MM MDF with internal plywood bracing for structural rigidity. Removable, acoustically transparent cloth grilles conceal adjustable crossovers, front-facing ports and the sizeable dual-concentric driver at the heart of each speaker.


The original Dual-Concentric speakers were introduced in 1947, invented by chief engineer Ronnie H Rackham who married a high-frequency compression drive unit with a 15” direct radiating bass driver. His design was such that the flare of the bass driver continued the flare rate of the high-frequency unit, providing a single point source with an inherently low crossover frequency, low levels of colouration and high levels of efficiency that were unheard of at the time. While the concept of the Dual-Concentric driver has remained the same, major technological advancements over the last 70 years have seen considerable improvements in design and performance. To cover the history and evolution of the dual-concentric driver would require several pages and is beyond the scope of this article, though this article gives an excellent rundown.

By the 1970s, Tannoy speakers were being used to record a significant majority of recorded music including output from EMI and Abbey Road and much of Decca’s classical output, many albums that we regard today as classics. Yet this was little known, and the consumer remained largely ignorant to the Dual-Concentric principle. The Monitor HPD (High-Performance Dual) drivers were introduced as a major re-design of the Monitor Gold, with power handling figures improved considerably thanks to new high-temperature adhesives, ‘Tannoplas’ surround material and cones reinforced by ‘Girdacoustic’ struts to reduce cone breakup.
A trio of drivers were developed to fit five cabinet models – the Arden, Berkeley, Cheviot, Devon and Eaton – and the drivers were sold also as kits complete with a crossover and terminal panel for the professional market or home constructor. The range was universally accepted worldwide but especially in Japan where it helped to establish Tannoy as a manufacturer of high-quality loudspeakers in the Far East. Lockwood Audio chose the HPD drivers for a range of studio monitors which found their way into many professional studios, continuing the legacy of the Monitor Gold.

Please don't hesitate to call with questions and please come listen to these beauties here in lovely Taos NM.
