So this review really was a treat. So what is this Low Frequency Compensation adjustment? Revel Performa FBe loudspeaker. The grilles are made from black cloth stretched over a very thin, insubstantial plastic frame all the better to minimise diffraction and attach to the front baffle via magnets, so there are no fittings visible if you decide to use the speakers without the grilles. F Performa3 floorstanding loudspeakers are true full-range loudspeakers with small footprints and sleek design. Submitted by DangeRuss on May 27, – 3: This trace was obtained in the far-field, using pink noise, so the outputs of the bass drivers and the port are able to combine, and you can see that it is remarkably flat down to 60Hz, after which it rolls off to be 5dB down at 40Hz and 9dB down at 30Hz.
The complete continuity of the sound from the very lowest notes on the piano to the highest is extraordinary. If you just put a single bulb in the middle of the room, its light will shine in all directions, lighting up all parts of the room equally. Similar 1-inch, aluminum-dome tweeters are employed in all of the full-range models. Room size and listening distance? Because the F is specified to provide a nominal impedance of 8 ohms, I began their break-in by connecting them to the 8 ohm taps of my Rogue M tubed monoblock power amps. They design it, somebody else builds it. Still, these are four stand-out, stand-mounters that deserve a review, or re-publication for the online readers of Stereophile.
Revel Concerta2 F36 Loudspeaker Review. So far as positioning was concerned, since my listening room is quite large, I was comfortably able to have both speakers a bit over two metres from the rear wall which seemed to provide the best stage depth.

The F’s bottom end sounded a little lean with the speaker so far out in the room; so, to reinforce the bass, I pushed it closer to the wall behind, ending up with the front baffles about 30 inches from the wall.
Next to that is a bass control: I used to be a Harman fanboy, but and especially after killing Infinity they sure make it difficult to respect their company.
While taking a break from partying with Prince like it was, well. Six Suites for Viola Solo. A aeries roll-off works better for many small rooms, but it sounded a little 33 in my 2,cubic-foot room which is also open to other spaces in the houseso I pulled the plugs. My room is quite small, and I thought that the bass switches and port plugs might be useful in getting the best sound from the f20.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience: You can use this to both set the optimum crossover frequency and equalize for the best response in your room. Because the F is specified to provide a nominal impedance of 8 ohms, I began their break-in by connecting them to the 8 ohm taps of my Rogue M tubed monoblock revvel amps.
Recording of December It makes up for never officially reviewing the second gen, with the three-way comparison between the F30, F52 and the current F I called Harman about “speaker burn in” or different “coloration” after they’ve been played awhile. Is this a serirs thing for Revel?
Revel F’s low-frequency and midrange transducers feature distortion reduction mechanisms that stabilize the flux field during operation, assuring low distortion even preforma high listening volumes. Bob Deutsch will be reviewing the Focal loudspeaker in the October or November issue. I did like the F’s tweeter level switch, even though I didn’t need it.
Above the F’s binding posts are two controls.
All of the Performa3 speakers employ cast-frame, aluminum-coned midranges and woofers. You should particularly note the spectacular smoothness and linearity of the response between about Hz serles 15kHz.
If you just put a single bulb in the middle of the room, its light will shine in all directions, lighting up all parts of the room equally. Sonus Faber Aida loudspeaker. If you scan the Performa3 line in search of bold design twists and engineering innovations, you won’t find much. I’m curious to know the approximate size, as well as how far away he was sitting from the speakers.
Music Pertorma ‘s Creative Capitals. It’s biwireable and biampable, with dual sets of binding posts compared with a single set for the F Both speakers come with foam port plugs that let you reduce bass output when the speaker is placed near a wall. Bonus Recording of December The Hookup Both the F and the F are pretty much ready to go out of the box. The smaller floorstanding, stand-mount, and center models also come in g208 white.
Thanks for the suggestions Submitted by John Atkinson on July 7, – The loudspeaker grilles are designed to minimize sonic diffraction or veiling and provide a clean, subtle appearance.

Revel Performa FBe loudspeaker. Recording of June Not bright or edgy. It seems to me that Harman would have a lot of good driver options within the company. Read about the performance of the Revel Performa3 F on Page 2.
All speaker designers know all about this of course, but none of them know where you will place your speakers, so almost all of them design their speakers to deliver the maximum bass output the drivers are capable of delivering and most of them do their measurements with their speakers elevated from the floor and well clear of any boundaries… f2008, sometimes, in large anechoic chambers, where there are no boundary effects at all.
Submitted by ken mac on July 5, – 7: Will there be any in the future? Most of Harman’s loudspeaker production is being outsourced these days. So what is this Low Frequency Compensation adjustment?
