Tannoy 402 overview

  • 1Description

The Reveal 402 from Tannoy is a 4" powered 2-way reference speaker that is designed for mixing and monitoring in the home, or the studio. It features an active crossover filter that aims to improve timing for a wider sweet spot, plus an accurately-tuned, front-firing bass port to help ensure optimal low frequency performance.

Equipped with a bi-amped, 50W amplifier that powers a 4" woofer and a 0.75" soft-dome tweeter, the Reveal 402 is designed to ensure maximum power and tonal clarity. It also features adjustable volume and EQ settings to customize the tuning of the speaker to compensate for acoustical deficiencies that may be present in your monitoring environment.

Included in the box of each monitor, is a 5 meter 1/8" (3.5mm) jack cable. Combined with the AUX Link feature, this allows you to plug into your laptop or portable music player's headphone output and link two Reveal 402 monitors for an instant stereo setup with no need for external interfaces. This is convenient for mixing on-the-go or for times when you just want to listen to some of your favorite music from your mobile device.

Additional Features:
•Balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/4" inputs for maximum flexibility
•Rubber padded base for acoustical isolation

    Tannoy 402 reviews

    Reveal 402 4" 50W Active Studio Monitor (Single) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Self noise makes them unusable for low volume applications Read and watched many positive reviews about these little speakers. A few people complained about some hiss and other noise, but I just assumed a bad installation. I was wrong. When I first fired them up, both speakers sizzled and hummed terribly. They do sound great for their size, but when the material played is lower then the self noise, they are difficult to listen too. Throw on some headphones and hear for yourself:Tannoy Reveal 402 - Self Noise: https://youtu.be/gZL7kQbYgOsI use monitors for editing dialog and other low volume audio, so I need quiet speakers. This was disappointing considering the good name of Tannoy. I've sent them back. B&H, as usual, was stellar in handling my return. 10 stars for customer service!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and Awesome I use this in my home studio and am blown away. You have to position them properly, but I can hear every detail, almost like using headphones. Leave them on neutral and position them right, and it is just an amazing experience to hear everything from such small monitors. I specifically looked for small (on my desk) and with a forward facing bass reflex (because I have no bouncing service behind the desk) and I just couldn't be happier. The bass could be more pronounced, since the frequency response starts at 50Hz, but or my music that doesn't make much of a difference. (I'm sure that hip-hop producers might need more bass, but on average I don't miss it) I can recommend these to anyone who is looking for small, flat, and clear reference monitors. They come with a rubber sole to prevent movement, and transfer of vibration to the desk surface.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uncolored sound I auditioned several low to midrange monitors - and even a few that broke the $1k barrier. To my ears the Tannoys were head and shoulders above the other low to midrange speakers and compared well to several of the more expensive monitors. I have not experienced any self-noise issues in the four years I’ve had them. My background is live sound, project studios, and audio for video, which is their current use. I supplement these speakers with Sony MDR-V6/9506 headphones for critical listening. Although cost is always a consideration, it was secondary to performance; I spec’d these for our studio because they produce sound accurately, not because they are inexpensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price and Great Monitors Im an electronic musician with a home studio where I do most of my work,I was looking for an affordable pair of near-field monitors for mixing and editing purposes.I was blown away by the size of the monitors and the powerful sound that they output is amazing,Great clarity in both the Low and High end frequencies plus it has all of the proper inputs and output jacks for every need dealing with audio.I would recommend these monitors to anyone looking for an affordable pair of monitors regardless of what genre they create.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Near Field Studio Monitor Purchased these over a month ago from B&H. Great little monitor for small room studio mixing. I use these to mix music, mainly blues, jazz, acoustic guitar, electronic drums, bass, etc... These sit about 32 from my head, 10 inches from the table top and 20 from the back wall. Thus, they sound great. A flat response with a detailed bass, balanced mids and clear high frequencies. No noise issues using a balanced XLR from a digital interface, clear and quiet when idle. I don't crank them up when mixing, in fact these monitors perform best at lower volumes under 90dB. Plus, my small room prohibits me from loud 100+db monitoring due to limited room acoustics, not the power of the monitors. These can do over 95dB+ when positioned correctly in a larger room. They are great for mixing. As well as the occasional MP3 sampling from a mobile device. However, I would not recommend them for a large room, full range entertainment system, or for computer speakers due to the flat frequency response and limited frequency range. For casual music entertainment there are better value systems designed for music enjoyment. For the CONS, I don't find any... yet. I hope they will last a long time. The Reveal 402s are everything I wanted in a near field studio monitor for my small studio room. I did a lot of sampling of monitors over the years, and know what I needed. It was a toss up between Yamaha, JBL, and Tannoy. Whit the price and the performance, I find the 402 as good as many higher priced monitors for a better price. Seems Tannoy knows that majority of studio mixers are doing it in small rooms with limited space, and not many products accommodate the small room studio. Nevertheless, the Tannoy 402 fits my room well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Desktop Studio Monitor I purchased a pair of Tannoy 402s because I wanted to work at home and not have to go into the studio everyday. I had a very small setup, a small desk in a small room, and so I wanted the smallest possible studio monitors, yet ones that could still deliver professional results. Examining the 402s, I found that they are quite compactin hight and width they are the same size as the average computer desktop speakerbut they are very deep, as deep as a speaker with a 6 woofer. They are also very heavy for their size. The look and finish is excellent and the controls in the back are sturdy. These Tannoy's are inexpensive, but they are not cheap. I liked the flexible array of connectors: XLR, 1/4 inch, and particularly the minijack (although it does not have RCA inputs) which gave me the flexibility to feed it anything from a mixing console to my iphone or computer. My workspace would be cramped and so the front bass porting would allow me to place these up against the wall without getting the bass interference that would come from rear ported speakers. Sonically they are far better than using run-of-the-mill computer speakers. The bass response is very good for the size, and the overall sound is accurate, clear and well defined. They are quiet, with no amplifier hiss or hum. I have always liked Tannoys, and the 402s have the smooth highs that are not harsh, making them good for people like me, who have to listen to music all day long. B&H in NYC has one of the best selections of professional studio monitors on display that can be compared at one time, and in my opinion the small Tannoys easily held their own with the other studio monitors in the selection, many of which were much more expensive. That is not to say the Tannoys were better (or worse) than the others, but that they are, like the others, a professional tool that can be used to achieve professional results by those who work in music production. In short they are well designed for those who require high-quality studio monitors, but who work off of their computer or laptops on a small desktop in a small room, like me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for small places Excellent sound quality, perfect for those who do not have much space in the desk. I use these monitors in my home studio and also to listen to vinyl.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitors Great monitors for a small space. Sound much bigger than they are. Stereo imaging is really good.
