Tamon Studio Monitor Pro 6000 Speakers

Sold for: $225

Tamon Speakers

Tamon is a brand that is difficult to find any meaningful information on. They are a small Japanese manufacturer that largely acts as a supplier to bigger Japanese audio firms. Occasionally they put out their own branded gear, and this seems to be aimed at the studio and commercial side of the industry. Having said that, these particular speakers are, I imagine, aimed at the domestic market as they seem to be unnecessarily decorative for commerical application.

This set of Tamon Studio Monitor Pro 6000 Speakers were in extraordinary condition with hardly a mark on them. Give me a set of 25-year-old, three-way speakers with a large woofer over most modern speakers. Deep, tight bass that pushes down below 40 hz. Possibly lacking a little in the midrange but you can tweak with the trim controls.

If you get hold of these speakers or similar, you should note that the potentiometers on the trim controls will likely need a clean periodically. When I purchased these speakers, one mid-range speaker and one tweeter were not working. They both started functioning perfectly after I gave the pots a good soaking with Electrolube contact cleaner. Note that these pots are not accessible from the inside even if you pull out the woofer. The only way to get Electrolube into them is down the shafts, so pull the knobs off, lay the speaker down on its back and spray away.

Specifications:

8 ohms, 3-speaker, 3-way, 100 watts RMS.

Each speaker contains:
1 x 27cm (11″) woofer
1 x 10 cm (4″) midrange
1 x 5 cm (2″) ring tweeter

Trim controls for midrange and tweeter.
Dimensions: 620h x 360w x 270d
Weight: 13kg each

    Does anyone know where I can get woofer replacements for a pair of Tamon ts-5000

  3. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours as of late, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s lovely worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.
