Matching 2 different brand of monitors

Hello people,
hope its going alright!

One of my Tannoy Reveal 6d just died, it needs have the whole board replaced, and it can't be fixed because for some reason Tannoy doesn't support it any longer, and they don't make that board any more.

So, I still got one speaker that is working, I'm thinking of buying another single speaker and pairing them up. If i see I can't really work like that and that there's no other choice, ill get the second new monitor.

Think it could work?

Cheers

The whole thing with having two monitors the same is that they will have the same response and (if made well) be in phase among other things. Different monitors sound different. Your stereo image will fall apart using 2 different ones for L/R.

If you have to replace it, get a pair, not a single of a different type.

I had not considered that, but could be a good experiment!

Open up your bad speaker and look for obvious part damage - bulging caps - corrosion - anything burnt. It might be an easy cheap fix. What you repair / replace on one speaker, likely you should do to the other too given it's age.
