Karma-AV is delighted to announce the UK launch of Revel’s Concerta2 Series loudspeakers. Designed to provide very high sound quality at modest prices for a wide range of music and home theatre applications, the new Concerta2 line-up introduces numerous design enhancements to the Concerta originals, integrated within beautifully contoured high-gloss black and high-gloss white enclosures.Revel_concerta_2_UK

The six-model Concerta2 range includes the M16 bookshelf monitor, two floor-standing tower speakers the F35 and F36, the C25 centre and S16 surround speakers, and the 800W B10 active subwoofer.

Concerta2 Series loudspeakers employ a sophisticated 1-inch aluminium tweeter with an integral phase ring, derived from Revel’s upmarket Performa3 Series. The tweeters are fitted with a patented fourth-generation Acoustic Lens Waveguide, which optimises driver integration and improves off-axis performance for a smoother, more consistent performance over a wider listening area.

The Concerta2 bass/mid drivers feature newly developed deep-anodised aluminium cones, designed to improve rigidity without increasing mass for more linear excursions and reduced distortion throughout the drivers’ operating range.

Each Concerta2 model has been developed using computer-optimised driver positioning and crossover network integration, producing a more lifelike soundstage for music and movie systems. The speakers’ best-in-class acoustic performance has been further verified via double-blind testing at the Harman Listening Lab. Based in Northridge California, the HLL is a one-of-a-kind facility purpose-built to advance the science of loudspeaker design through meaningful double-blind listening.

Concerta2 loudspeakers are built to extremely high standards using 3/4-inch MDF enclosure construction with non-parallel sidewalls to attenuate internal standing waves. The enclosures have edge-to-edge “windowpane” bracing to reduce cabinet-induced colouration. Premium internal parts and wiring are used throughout, including gold-plated multi-way binding posts to accept a variety of speaker cable terminations.

The Concerta2 enclosure’s curved side panels impart a more compact, streamlined appearance, enhanced by the matte black trim rings surrounding the drivers, a matte black tweeter waveguide and a removable magnetically fastened grille. There are no visible fixings on any front surface. Revel Concerta2 loudspeakers are available in stunning high-gloss black and high-gloss white painted finishes.
