Fantastic Speaker

I previously owned F206's which are superb speakers. I delayed my review of the F226Be's for a month so I could give a realistic view. Theses speakers as simply amazing! Worth every penny. The speakers are smooth, accurate, amazing soundstage and a clarity that has to be heard to be appreciated. They are not a one trick pony because I listen to a wide variety of music classical, classic rock, hard rock, jazz, R&B, Blues and country. The speakers perform flawlessly regardless of genre. I've even picked up a new genre - female jazz singers. Female voices are difficult for speakers to reproduce accurately and the F226Be is absolutely astonishing how well they project female voices. Are they expensive depends on how you look at things. A lot of people spend more on jet skis, motorcycles, vacations, etc so they are within reason if you value great sound quality. I never thought I would spend this kind of money on a pair of speakers. These will be the last pair I ever buy they are simply that good. I often listen to music for 2-4 hours and never have I gotten fatigued listening the the Revels. Would I do it again oh yeah!!

Pros: see review

Cons: very low bass is a little light which is to be expected with a speaker this size

Wonderful!

Crutchfield customer from Saint Louis, MO on 9/16/2020

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

First I bought F206's, which I think are very good speakers, especially for the price. But I then got these F226Be's, to see if they were worth twice the price of the F206's. They might not be worth twice the price but they might be close to it, because in my 7.2 home theater system (in which I cross everything over to my 4 subs at 80hz), and to my ear they sound much better. It's a stronger sounding speaker than the F206...the tweeter/trebel is really terrific, the mids are more solid and the bass is punchier. They work and blend very well with my C208 center speaker to help bring movies to life. While I'm a movie-guy, the music in movies is really outstanding with the F226Be's. If you get these speakers and use a single run of speaker cables (instead of bi-wiring or bi-amping them), experiment with where you connect them. Revel suggests the HIGH/upper terminals (which works great on my C208), but I don't like as much as the LOW/lower terminals for the F226Be's...the HIGH terminals give me a smoother sound (which might be better for music), but the LOW terminals give me a punchier sound, which I prefer for movies. The F226Be's, like the F206's and the C208, appear to be very well made and are very good looking speakers too.

spectacular speakers

Edward from Fort Wayne on 9/4/2020

These speakers are spectacular. They are a small, but noticeable improvement over the Performa F206 that I had before. The only con is that it is a bit light on bass, but I have a JL Audio subwoofer to augment the bass. I was a bit worried about having these speakers freight shipped to me, but that went without a hitch. Thank you Crutchfield.

Pros: excellent imaging, excellent soundstage, not fatiguing in the very least

Cons: somewhat light in bass
