    I have five Tannoy Saturn S8Cs with 8 inch dual concentric speakers. I am trying to sell two of them as they will be too large for the room as rear surrounds. No one is biting at the moment!

    I realise that speaker cabinet design is a specialised art/science, but, could I cannibalize the two rear speakers and mount the cones and crossovers in the ceiling?

    Advice and knock backs accepted!

    Has anyone got any ideas? I do not want to spend a fortune on Tannoy Dual Concentric Ceiling Speakers (£200 each!) when I have all the bits in the speakers I bought for £60 each. It is just a question of whether they will sound awful or great with some clever boxing in?

    Also, I will need to find some white 8 inch grills!

    Out of interest, I contacted Tannoy. It seems the driver is the same as the driver used in their current 8 inch DC ceiling speaker - albeit housed in a special housing. So it looks like I will be doing some surgery! :rolleyes:

    Hi, I'm a new member and I saw you have 2 Tannoy S8C to sell. I'm interrested in these speakers. Black ash? and in which condition, original boxes?
    What is your price, please.

    Hi DarrenH, I just found your other message (closed). So, you will try to use the components of the 2 speakers S8C to make in ceiling one's. If it doesn' work, I will interested in buying them at a price matching your purchase price + shipping.
    Thank you in advance
    PS :I'm also looking for informations about a current Ebay bid on used S8LCR (still 35 pairs). What is the real condition of the speakers?
