Revel-Performa3-Be.jpgOn display in the Harman suite at CES 2017 were the Revel Performa3 Be concept loudspeakers, including the F208Be three-way tower (shown here, click on the image to view it larger) and the M106Be two-way bookshelf speaker. Both models use a one-inch Beryllium dome tweeter with an Acoustic Lens Waveguide and a newly developed DCC cone technology for the midrange drivers and woofers. The speakers will be offered in either a furniture-grade high-gloss wood veneer finish or an automotive-grade high-gloss painted finish. Pricing and availability have not yet been announced.

From Revel
Revel by HARMAN previewed the Performa3 Be concept loudspeakers, based on the award-winning Performa3 Series product range, at CES 2017. Based on Revel's Performa3 F208 and M106 models, the Performa3 Be concepts include two new models: the F208Be 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker and M106Be 2-way bookshelf loudspeaker. The concepts feature the latest waveguide geometry, Beryllium and Deep Ceramic Composite (DCC) transducer technology and premium crossover network designs.

The Revel F208Be employs a 1-inch Beryllium dome tweeter inspired by Revel's Ultima2 series and patented fifth generation Acoustic Lens Waveguide to deliver a remarkably transparent and detailed high frequency response and seamless integration with the midrange. The Be concept also features a newly developed DCC cone technology that yields a durable ceramic surface to the aluminum cones and results in an ideal stiffness to weight ratio.

With a single 5.25-inch DCC cone for midrange frequency and two 8-inch DCC cone woofers with cast Aluminum frames for low frequency response, the F208Be delivers a remarkably smooth frequency response with extension to 40 kHz. The loudspeaker is designed with aesthetics matching the award-winning Performa3 series with curved side panels, rounded back enclosures and includes High Frequency and Boundary Compensation controls.

Utilizing the same 1-inch Beryllium dome tweeter and waveguide mated to a 6.5-inch DCC cone woofer for low frequency response, Revel's Performa3 M106Be bookshelf loudspeaker offers clear, highly resolved sound with extension to 40 kHz. Built with a compact form factor, the M106Be can be shelf-mounted or stand-mounted with optional M Stand accessory floor stands.

"The Performa3 Be concept loudspeakers bring Revel's widely acclaimed Ultima2 Series Beryllium tweeter technology to the award winning Performa3 range. The new loudspeakers combine the Beryllium tweeter with our most advanced waveguide and DCC transducer technology resulting in unparalleled acoustic performance," said Jim Garrett, Director of Marketing and Product Management, HARMAN.

The Performa3 Be Series concept loudspeakers feature magnetically attached black cloth grilles, and are available in a furniture-grade high-gloss wood veneer finish or automotive-grade high-gloss painted finishes, including Walnut, Black, White, and Beryllium Metallic.
