The Tannoy Monitor Silver series was released in the early 1950's and produced until around 1958. Distinguishing physical features of this model are:
The Monitor Silver was available as:
Magnet cover and wiring to the speaker, showing the feed to the compression driver diaphragm at the rear.
"Pepper-pot" phase compensation channels that form the coupling from the HF diaphragm to the horn throat, which is machined into the magnet pole for the LF driver.
The Silver 15 is visually identical ro the Silver 12 - just having a bigger LF cone (but identical HF horn
and diaphragm). A major difference in sound would be apparent between the 12 and 15 though,
as the crossover design for the Silver 12 is much more simple.
