LOCKWOOD ACADEMY'S LOADED WITH 12" TANNOY HPD Drivers
Tannoys in Lockwoods are the perfect audio marriage, I will be sorry to see these go as I have them in my office and they sound terrific. The Tannoy HPDs have been serviced by Wembley Loudspeaker company who also fitted replacement suspensions to them both, they sound great. The Lockwood Academy cabinets are very sound and more substantial than Tannoy cabinets providing a better bass end however these particular ones are not the smartest, there is a rip in the material of one of the cabs as can be seen in the pictures, they would both look a bit better if the surrounds were painted black.
The Tannoy drivers are 12" HPDs ( High Power Drive ) and sound superb, they are from the 1970's, I had a pair of 15" Reds in Lockwood cabinets in my first studio in 1975, they were so efficient I used to drive them with a Quad 303 amplifier and achieved sufficient sound levels.
