About the Revel PerformaBe F328Be
Tower of power
Revel's top PerformaBe Series tower, the F328Be, has arrived. An additional 8" woofer and increased cabinet height and volume give this mammoth floor-stander an advantage over its sibling, the F228BE, in sheer output and bass depth.
Its three 8" woofers, one 5-1/4" midrange driver, and signature beryllium tweeter are housed in a beautiful cabinet with thick walls and vibration-reducing internal bracing. This monolithic loudspeaker will render a transparent and detailed soundstage that is virtually distortion-free.
Exceptional dynamic range
This is a sensitive speaker that can faithfully reproduce every detail of a musical recording, at high or low volume. The F328Be can play whisper-quiet passages with subtlety and nuance. But it can also belt out super-charged beats and high-energy guitar or sax solos with zeal.
The magic all starts with the beryllium tweeter
From top to bottom, the F328Be delivers powerful and articulate sound
One of the secrets to the F328Be's great sound is its uniquely designed beryllium tweeter.
Beryllium is several times stiffer than aluminum or titanium tweeter diaphragms. And it's also super-lightweight, so it moves quickly and in a very controlled fashion — two key attributes of a high-quality tweeter.
An acoustic lens waveguide for great sound in every seat
One of the best attributes of the F328Be is its off-axis listening. The beryllium tweeter uses an acoustic lens waveguide, which helps it produce remarkably accurate sound, even if you're sitting off to the side of the "sweet spot."
When you invite friends over to listen to these beautiful speakers (and trust me, you'll want to), everyone in the room will enjoy terrific sound.
Impressively hard-hitting bass and accurate midrange
Revel paired its beryllium tweeter with three 8" Deep Ceramic Composite (DCC) aluminum cone woofers for deep, tightly controlled bass. A dedicated 5-1/4" DCC midrange driver bridges this speaker's lows and highs with smooth, well-blended sound.
Each F328Be ships in its own heavy-duty flight case with butterfly latches and wheels, so you can unbox it in place and transport it safely. Good thing — each speaker weighs just north of 112 pounds.
Tested by instrument and by ear
Revel's world-class speaker design and testing facility features an anechoic chamber and the latest high-tech measurement gear. But some of their most critical test instruments are the ears of their trained listening panel. When working on a new design, Revel's engineers set up a series of controlled auditions comparing their design to several competing speakers.
Speakers under comparison sit on a rotating platform, and each model is moved into the identical position by a computer-controlled belt drive system. An acoustically transparent screen hides the speakers from the listeners to avoid visual bias. These double-blind listening tests provide an essential reality check, and help the engineers correlate measurements with what listeners actually hear and prefer.
