On-wall Speakers(Print this page)
The M8 is ideal as an inconspicuous surround loudspeaker, whether on its included wall-mount bracket or placed on a shelf. It is also well suited as a front-channel loudspeaker, whether mounted on a wall or used on a shelf or desktop.
Concerta speakers are voice-matched for use in any combination to build movie and music systems of uncommon realism. The series includes an innovative 3-channel LCR system mounted in a single enclosure, a highly capable center channel speaker, a choice of satellites and an impressive 250-watt powered subwoofer. The B120 sub can be connected directly to your system or operated wirelessly with an optional transmitter, for complete placement freedom.
With appropriate hardware, it’s possible to affix virtually any compact loudspeaker to a listening room wall, and manufacturers are free to promote any model of a certain size and weight as “wall-mountable.” But very few audio manufacturers have the facilities and expertise needed to determine just how their on-wall systems will sound when actually placed on or near a wall.
The performance of Revel Concerta™ on-wall loudspeakers has been extensively evaluated in a variety of on-and near-wall installations through blind listening tests in the Revel Multichannel Listening Lab. Using proprietary 36-point anechoic measurements, Concerta on-wall speakers have been shown to deliver remarkably flat frequency response across an exceptionally wide listening area for clean, accurate sound in real-world listening rooms. None of the competing systems tested under identical conditions performed as well. Remarkably, Revel engineers could not identify a single competing on-wall system they considered suitable for on-wall use, based on either laboratory measurements or double-blind listening tests.
With advanced drivers utilizing Micro Ceramic Composite (MCC) cones and domes, along with high-order crossovers, and housed in rigid aluminum enclosures styled to complement the look of LCD and plasma displays, Concerta on-wall systems will fill any room with brilliant, distortion-free sound from virtually any amplifier. All Concerta on-wall woofer, midrange and tweeter diaphragms are constructed of Micro Ceramic Composite (MCC), a new material created by anodizing both sides of an aluminum core. Anodizing both sides of an aluminum core adds strength and stiffness – but very little weight – to a material already well suited for use in transducer diaphragms.
