From Revel
Revel by HARMAN introduced the compact, high-performance Concerta family of subwoofer and satellite audio systems at CES 2017. Revel's most affordable stereo and home theater loudspeaker system, the Concerta Series provides excellent, high-quality performance from compact, stylish, high-gloss painted enclosures with a wide variety of positioning and placement options. The systems deliver award-winning Revel sound quality in compact, affordable configurations from 2.1- to 7.1-channel systems.

The Revel Concerta M8 satellite packs are compact, versatile, high-performance loudspeakers for use in two-channel or multichannel audio systems. The M8 SP5 includes four satellites and one center channel plus accessories, and the M8 SP2 includes two satellites plus accessories. The SP5 and SP2 packs can be mixed and matched to create seven- and nine-channel systems. The M8 loudspeakers are designed to work with the new B8 wireless subwoofer.

The M8 satellites feature dual Micro-Ceramic Composite (MCC) 3-inch woofers and a bass reflex enclosure with dual front-firing ports. High frequencies are provided by a 1-inch MCC tweeter mated to a waveguide for seamless integration with the woofers.

Available in high-gloss painted finishes in Black, White or Red, the M8 satellites are attractive units, perfect for tabletop placement or wall mounting with the included "C" brackets and accessories included for versatile mounting and positioning.

"The M8 subwoofer satellite systems are all about sound quality and flexibility," said Jim Garrett, Director of Marketing and Product Management, HARMAN. "The systems can be set up in a number of multi-channel configurations to perfectly address the needs of a discrete yet high performance music or home theater system."

The new Revel Concerta B8 Subwoofer is a compact, versatile, high-output wireless subwoofer featuring an 8-inch down-firing woofer and a 200-Watt RMS amplifier in a sealed enclosure. The B8 includes a wireless transmitter, as well as LFE and Stereo L/R RCA audio inputs. This powerful, compact, easy-to-place subwoofer is designed to work with the new M8 SP5 and SP2 satellite packs, and can also be used with Concerta2 and Architectural Series loudspeakers for a compact, high performance solution. The B8 features Level, Phase, and Bass Boost controls, and is available in high-gloss Black or White painted finishes.

"The B8 subwoofer is a compliment to any audio system," said Garrett. "The small footprint enclosure is easy to place and connect. It looks and sounds great, and it has the features, level of quality, and reliability expected from the Revel name."

The M8 SP5, M8 SP2, and B8 will be available in Spring 2017 with pricing to be announced.
