The flagship of Tannoy’s Eclipse range, the Eclipse Three is a loudspeaker designed to deliver the biggest scale performance and incredible value for money. The near 1metre tall ported cabinet is over 26 litres in volume and packs in the latest Eclipse 28 mm soft dome HF driver and twin 127 mm (5.00”) Eclipse mid/bass drivers for truly class leading bass dynamics. Suitable for medium and larger sized rooms, the Eclipse Three is a substantial system upgrade for budget and more upmarket Hi-Fi systems as well as premium amplified network streamers.

The Eclipse Three employs a D’Appolito driver configuration, usually only found on much more affluent loudspeaker designs. By placing the tweeter centrally between the two bass/mid drivers, the speaker’s dispersion characteristics are smoothed through the critical crossover region. The result is a highly articulate musical performance on or off the loudspeaker’s main axis, eliminating the room’s traditional ‘sweet spot’ and delivering peak performance across more seats in your listening room.

Backing up the class-leading sound-staging with real world dynamic scale, the Eclipse Three is tremendously efficient at 90 dB / Watt and boasts 240 Watt peak power handling. The larger cabinet and twin mid/bass driver configuration deliver outstanding low frequency response, with bass reproduction down to an earth-shaking 38 Hz… lower than many manufacturer’s budget subwoofers!

The Eclipse Three’s braced cabinet, two-part plinth for additional stability and audiophile components add to up to a truly class leading loudspeaker design finished with equally premium touches. From the robust gold-plated speaker terminals to the 8-bolt driver mounting, subtle trim detailing and satin black oak finish, The Eclipse Three sets new standards for budget loudspeakers in both performance and looks.
