A different DIY terminal solution, by Jesper Rosendahl.

The original Tannoy connectors are rare and expensive, I found an alternativ solution:
4 pin Computer connectors look a lot like the "Real thing" & cost nothing:

I hope this article is going to inspired a few Tannoy enficionados, like Hans and his Great Tannoy page, the first place I always look for info & DIY Tannoy idears.
