Previewed at CES 2017 and now introduced at High End 2017 in Munich, the new Revel Performa3 Be model features the addition of 1-inch Beryllium dome tweeters and Deep Ceramic Composite mid-range and woofers. Based on Revel’s Performa3 F208, the Performa3 Be 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker also features the latest patented fifth generation Acoustic Lens Waveguide and premium crossover network designs to deliver detailed high frequency response and seamless integration with the mid-range. 

Revel by Harman demonstrated the new Performa3 Be loudspeakers at High End 2017, based on Revel’s Performa3 F208 and M106 models, the Performa3 Be include two new models: the F208Be 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker and M106Be 2-way bookshelf loudspeaker. The models 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 transparent and detailed high frequency response and seamless integration with the mid-range. The Be loudspeaker 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 extends the highs to 40kHz. The loudspeaker is designed with aesthetics matching the Performa3 series with curved side panel, 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, also with extension to 40kHz. 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 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,” says Jim Garrett, Senior Director, Product Strategy and Planning, Harman.

The Performa3 Be Series loudspeakers feature magnetically-attached black cloth grills, 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. |
