    Hi, anybody knows who may sell Tannoy spare parts?
    I accidentally dropped one of my XT 8F and wooden speaker base get broken. Currently contacted with shop and service point with no effect.
    Maybe somebody knows place or website where I could ask?

    Ouch! Have you tried Tannoy directly? I doubt it would be too complex to have some bases made should you not be able to source originals.

    Yes I send them request and they responded to contact some service points from the list. I picked one in NI and I sent mail and they ignored me completely. Maybe I should make a call..

    The speaker base can be easy removed as is screwed with four bolts from the bottom through chrom platted cylinders.

    I’d get some replacements water cut from 15mm aluminium and then get them powder coated.

    Likely to sound better and probably not cost any more than the spare parts.

    You could try asking ‘Mainly Tannoy’ who advertises on ebay.

    I haven’t seen anything like your bases for sale there, but he may have contacts that could help.

    I have found him quite helpful when I contacted him with enquiries (email address somewhere at the bottom of the adverts).

    Some wood glue and clamps to bring it back together would be worth trying first
