Manley Tannoy ML10
   Product Description

The much sought after ML10 used Tannoy's original SRM-B/SGM-B 10" Dual-Concentric rolled-rubber-surround paper cone driver with Mastering Lab Crossover. Manley and The Mastering Lab jointly-commissioned the last ever production of this famous driver to build a limited run of the ML10 before Tannoy discontinued the SGM10 p/n 2558R driver in (or around) 1992. The tough dense non-resonant cabinet was constructed of 1 1/2" thick MDF finished in black formica with either 1" thick solid walnut or cherry sides. These sides served to protect the corners of the cabinet.

The Crossover was The Mastering Labs' creation. They had been retro fitting the crossover into little plastic boxes affixed to the back of stock Tannoy SRM-B/SGM-B 5/8" ply cabinets before this joint project came to light. Manley's idea was to design and build strong and heavily braced new cabinets 15" Wide X 10" Deep X 22" Tall weighing in at 50lbs/23kgs each, order the drivers, and build Doug Sax's crossover into these ML10s with proper production techniques, all with the crossover controls mounted on the front for the first time, and Bi-ampable/Bi-wireable recessed five way binding posts on the back. The dream monitor speaker was born!

The ML10 offered point source localization combined with absolute time alignment, low distortion and phase coherence. Amplifier power of 100 to 200 watts was recommended. Designed to provide the recording engineer with a highly accurate yet musical tool, the ML10 is now a highly sought after collectible. They now often sell for more than the original retail price of $3K USD.

Manley have created the ML10A follow-up design to "keep the dream alive" and produced another production Tannoy 10" Dual-Concentric rolled-rubber-surround paper cone driver (7900-0267) #2598 as found in the 1992-1998 Tannoy Stirling hifi model. A new crossover had to be used with the newer driver to compensate for the different balance of woofer to tweeter efficiency in the newer driver. Approximately 50 pairs of ML10A were produced.
