Concerta Series: The Revel by Harman Concerta series of loudspeakers
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 (LCR8),
a highly capable center channel speaker (C10),
and a choice of satellite loudspeakers (M8
M10) - all sold separately.
LCR Application: The Revel Concerta LCR8 simplifies the look of a
multichannel theater system by doing the work of three front speakers. It
delivers left, right, and center channel signals with the clean dialog and
distinct imaging you would expect from separate speaker components. Simply add Revel satellite
M8) for the surround channels and a Revel
powered subwoofer (such as the
B1) to complete a high-performance home
entertainment loudspeaker system.
3-Channel Driver Configuration: The Revel Concerta LCR8 loudspeaker is
actually three discrete speakers built into a single enclosure. The LCR8
incorporates the front left, center and right speaker channels of a home theater
system. Each channel of the LCR8 utilizes a one 1" dome tweeter and two 3"
cone woofers (for a total of three 1" tweeters and six 3" woofers). The tweeter
and woofer diaphragms are constructed of Micro Ceramic Composite (MCC); a new
material created by anodizing both sides of an aluminum cone. Anodizing both
sides of an aluminum cone adds strength and stiffness, while still allowing it
to be lightweight.
- Three 1" Tweeters w/ CAI Waveguide Technology: The
three 1" dome tweeters feature an underhung voice coil and a ferrofluid
magnetic damping and advanced neodymium motor system for optimal
performance. Constant Acoustic Impedance (CAI) waveguide technology provides
ideal acoustic loading across the tweeters' frequency range, as well as flat
response over a wider listening area.
- Six 3" Cone Woofers: The six 3" Micro Ceramic Composite
(MCC) cone woofers feature die-cast alloy frames, oversized magnetic
assemblies with flat spiders and butyl-rubber surrounds.
Note: When using the system in a home theater system, make sure your
AV receiver or processor is set to "Small" for the LCR8 loudspeaker. Some
receivers/processors offer a choice of crossover frequencies; select 110Hz
as the crossover frequency for the LCR8 loudspeaker.
High Order Crossover Network: The Concerta LCR8's high order
crossover network features carefully-selected components that contribute to its
great performance. The high order crossover network blends the tweeter and woofers together for a smooth, natural sound. This advanced
crossover network also dramatically reduces distortion and dynamic compression
for clear sound that maintains the same quality over a very wide dynamic range.
In addition, this precision crossover network optimizes the speaker's timbral
accuracy, enhancing musical enjoyment for listeners who are anywhere in the
room, not only those seated on-axis to the loudspeakers.
Rigid Aluminum Ported Enclosure: The Revel Concerta LCR8
loudspeaker employs a rigid aluminum enclosures that is styled to complement the
look of today's flat-panel televisions. There are six
front-firing ports for greater efficiency and better midbass response.
Three Sets of Binding Post Terminals: The Concerta LCR8
loudspeaker features three sets of gold-plated binding-posts that provide
connection to the left, right, and center speaker outputs of your AV receiver or
integrated amplifier. The binding-posts offer a secure connection
for speaker cables terminated with banana plugs (single or dual), spade-lugs,
pin-connectors, or bare wire (up to 10AWG). You will need to remove the binding
post's plastic inserts in order to use banana plugs.
Mounting Options: The LCR8 speaker can be placed directly on
a shelf, using the included tabletop stand which allows you to tilt the speaker
upward 18° or downward 7°. The LCR speaker can also be mounted on a wall using
the included wall-bracket. The wall-mount bracket allows you to tilt the speaker
up or down 30º, so you can position the speaker toward your primary listening
position (it does not swivel left or right). The wall-mount bracket positions
the speaker 1.0625" away from the wall. The included wall bracket cover provides
wire-management and offers a professional looking installation. Dimensions are
as follows -
- Table-Top Base Installed: 40.0625" (w) x 4.4375" (h) x
- Wall-Mount Bracket Installed: 40.0625" (w) x 4.25" (h)
x 5.5625" (d)
- Speaker Only (No Stand or Bracket Installed): 40.0625"
(w) x 4.25" (h) x 4.5" (d)
- See Owner's Manual for instructions on how to install the table-top
stand and wall-mount bracket.
- Only use the wall-mount bracket which comes with this speaker; 3rd
party wall-mount brackets are not recommended.
