One of the Audio Industry's Finest Values, Features Three 6.5-Inch Woofers: Full-Range Revel Concerta2 F36 Tower Loudspeakers Play with Big Openness, Insightful Detail, and Revealing Clarity
Sometimes, the reviews just have it – the across-the-board consensus so uniform that it seems utterly illogical to come to any other conclusion than what the experts have decided. Such is the case with the Revel F36 tower loudspeakers. Without a doubt among the finest values in high-end audio, the two-and-a-half-way model has won scores of awards and drawn countless raves. Veteran audio critic Brent Butterworth even went on record stating "F36 is today's best value I've heard in a mid-priced tower speaker." We couldn't agree more. F36 is truly that special.
Rather than take shortcuts on appearance, build, or sound in the name of accessibility, F36 utilizes existing principles, trickle-down technology, and the advantages that come with spending countless hours in acoustic laboratories in pursuit of sonic superiority. Such efforts extend all the way to the gorgeous form-follows-function cabinets. Devoid of any visible fasteners on the top, front, or side panels, rigid, curved side walls and extensive bracing to eliminate coloration as well as contoured inner port walls that both maximizes output and minimizes sound changes at different volumes.
Inside, one-inch aluminum-dome tweeters possess a mechanical resonance far below the operating band, preserving linearity and consistency, while the high-frequency waveguides match the midrange/tweeter's off-axis response to ensure incredible naturalism. Taken to new heights with three 6.5-inch versions in F36, anodized aluminum-cone woofers tout micro-ceramic cones as well as ideal symmetry for super-low distortion, photo-finish accuracy, and unfettered cleanliness.
Not for nothing has F36 netted effusive praise from major press outlets stemming from Sound & Vision to CNET. It's time you hear exactly why for yourself with a risk-free in-home audition backed by the 100% Music Direct Guarantee.
"Simply put, I think the F36 is today's best value I've heard in a mid-priced tower speaker. There's no one to whom I wouldn't recommend it."
– Brent Butterworth, HomeTheaterReview.com, five-star review and Best of 2017 Award
"The sonic perspective was open and full-bodied through the bass and mid-bass, essentially uncolored in the midrange, and detailed and clear in the treble."
– Thomas Norton, Sound & Vision, Top Pick Award
"Never stretching things too wide or projecting detail unrealistically, the F36s again seemed to be revealing exactly what was on the disc in the manner it was meant to be heard – neither more nor less."
– Adam Smith, What Hi-Fi?
"The Revel F36 is a 21st century audiophile tower with oodles of detail and resolution, and a broad, yet clearly focused soundstage."
– Steve Gutenberg, CNET
"Using optimized transducers, an improved wave guide, new crossover networks, and a new port design, the Revel Concerta2 F36 tower speakers provide the famous Revel sound at an amazing price point that bests the competition in construction, design, and sound quality."
– Jim Milton, HomeTheaterHiFi.com
Woofers Designed with Computer-Modeling Technology
Revel engineers utilize state-of-the-art computer modeling tools during transducer design to optimize everything that affects performance. Laser-based analysis of the resulting prototypes confirms ideal symmetry, which results in lowered distortion and cleaner sound quality. And Micro-Ceramic Composite (MCC) cones insure ideal piston-like performance, eliminating resonances that would otherwise color the sound.
Revel engineers created a tweeter with a mechanical resonancewell below the operating band, ensuring linearity and consistency in the crossover region. Advanced design methodologies have allowed the tweeter/midrange crossover to be set an octave lower, thereby improving the critical system directivity.
Acoustic Lens Waveguide
Concerta2's sophisticated high-frequency waveguides match the off-axis response, or directivity, of the tweeter and the midrange throughout the crossover thereby making a clear difference between what is a mechanical reproduction and the seamless sound of real music.
Attractive, Functional Cabinets
A novel technique of cabinet construction is used to create Concerta2 enclosures. They're not only beautiful, but also have rigid, curved side walls plus extensive bracing that result in a strong and inert enclosure.
Latest Generation Port Design
Employing a patented Constant Pressure Gradient (CPG) technology in the port design, Concerta2 ports are designed such that the inner wall of the port is contoured, allowing the change in pressure along the axis of the port from inlet to outlet duct be kept substantially constant. The approach reduces the compression, or change in sound at different volumes, present in other port designs and optimizes both the output capability and distortion.
