Nothing Less Than Revel-atory: Revel Performa F226Be Tower Speakers Play with Size-Belying Power and Startling Efficiency, Feature Two 6.25-Inch Woofers and Beryllium Tweeter
Size-belying power and equipment-friendly efficiency: The Revel Performa F226Be tower speakers share all the aspects of its multi-award-winning bigger brother, F228Be, save for a more room-friendly compact size and slightly smaller woofer complement. Chief among the mirror properties is a one-inch beryllium tweeter that delivers prodigious amounts of extension, air, neutrality, and detail. Each is driven by immense 3.4-inch dual ceramic magnets and mated to a fifth-generation, ceramic-coated, cast-aluminum Acoustic Lens waveguide seamlessly integrated with its companion 5.25-inch midrange driver's directivity.
For the low end, large, 6.25-inch, dual deep ceramic composite aluminum-cone bass drivers with cast frames furnish smooth, room-filling bass. High-order crossovers replete with film capacitors and air-core inductors lend F228Be class-leading coherency.
While extremely technical, such material and engineering obsessiveness explains the beauty behind Performa F226Be: Revel got all of the hard parts, exacting details, and critical tests out of the way so this premium three-way design arrives ready to impress from the start. You'll witness head-turning dynamics, uber-clean resolution, startling impact, and investigative-caliber information retrieval. In other words, music experiences nothing less than revel-atory. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"The F226Be provides a natural, balanced presentation that will let you extract loads of detail from your system to create an enveloping listening experience. I am very glad I did not dismiss these speakers as only being the smaller version of a speaker I had already reviewed, as they are truly deserving of their own attention."
