The secret to Revel Performa F228Be's immaculate sound lies a 1-inch beryllium tweeter driven by massive 85mm dual ceramic magnets. The powerful tweeter is mated to a 5th-generation ceramic-coated, cast-aluminum Acoustic Lens waveguide, engineered to seamlessly integrate with the directivity of the companion mid-range driver. The 5.25 inch mid-range driver has been updated with a larger Deep Ceramic Composite (DCC) diaphragm, bigger voice coil and ceramic motor structure. The result is greater efficiency, less compression, improved dynamic range, reduced distortion, and increased power handling. PerformaBe crossover networks utilise all film capacitors and air core inductors in the mid-range and tweeter circuits. These premium components allow Revel's World-class engineers to extract nuances and details from music that would otherwise be lost. Combined with traditional Revel high-order crossover slopes and proprietary Acoustic Lens waveguide geometry, transducer integration is seamless.
THE BEAUTY OF BERYLLIUM: Beryllium - Element 4 on the Periodic Table, is a rare earth metal that is renowned for its remarkable physical properties that make it the ideal material for a high-frequency transducer. Compared to aluminum and titanium tweeter diaphragms, Beryllium offers 4.5 times the stiffness and three times more damping, and does so at only half of the weight.
Redefining performance expectations, using the award-winning Performa3 F208 and M106 as the starting point, Revel’s team re-engineered almost every component in order to extract the finest details and highest levels of performance. With an all-new Beryllium tweeter as the basis of the PerformaBe Series, the result is unparalleled detail and accuracy along with a sense of air, spaciousness and a cohesive sound-stage, defining these models as World standards in performance.
At the heart of the PerformaBe models lies a 1 inch/25mm beryllium tweeter driven by massive 85mm dual ceramic magnets. This powerful tweeter is mated to a 5th generation, ceramic-coated, cast-aluminum Acoustic Lens waveguide, engineered to seamlessly integrate with the directivity of the companion mid-range or mid-bass driver. The result is a tweeter with greater efficiency, improved dynamic range, reduced distortion and increased power handling.
PerformaBe's crossover networks utilise all film capacitors and air core inductors in the mid-range and tweeter circuits, as well as the woofer circuit in the bookshelf model. These premium components allow Revel’s engineers to extract details that would otherwise be lost to lesser components.
PerformaBe top panels are painted in a stylish metallic black with raised electroform badging. Each model is available in a choice of four high-gloss finishes for seamless integration into any décor; Black, White, Walnut and Metallic Silver.
