Tannoy Revolution XT 6F Description
Revolution XT marks a far-reaching overhaul and dramatic upgrade of Tannoy’s best-selling Revolution loudspeaker series. While retaining the unique, trapezoid cabinet shape, radical acoustic engineering and new patent pending Tannoy technologies mean sweeping changes are now incorporated.
Deep & Clean Bass
Based on a completely new Omnimagnet™ powered Dual Concentric™ driver, Revolution XT models deliver a natural and engaging sound with exceptional imaging, wide HF dispersion and deep, articulate bass.
High End Construction
Hand built with premium audiophile components, the crossover’s ‘simple, straight’ design philosophy provides an ultra-clean signal path to retain the utmost musical information. Large, gold-plated bi-wire binding posts allow a robust cable connection for reliable signal transfer.
The substantially built cabinets are handcrafted in a choice of dark walnut or medium oak real wood veneers. Providing acoustically beneficial cabinet rigidity, the Revolution XT 6F and XT 8F floorstanding speakers incorporate two chambers with a pioneering internal port system. The dual-cavity coupled reflex system optimises driver performance from low to mid frequencies, and adverse low-frequency standing waves are reduced. LF energy exits from a down-firing port at the base of the floorstanding models, diffusing into the room between the cabinet and the integrated plinth. The design delivers tuneful and musically coherent bass reproduction while reducing room boundary effects and facilitating easy speaker placement.
Modern Speaker Technology
The parameters available to achieve a high level of audio performance are dictated by established acoustic design principles. Any improvement to an already impeccable driver design is therefore a tough challenge. Utilising the latest electro-acoustic research and tools, this was the task for Tannoy’s team of highly experienced engineers whilst developing a new drive unit for the Revolution XT series.
The Omnimagnet Dual Concentric is a completely new interpretation of Tannoy’s proprietary point source drive unit philosophy; a major milestone in more than 65 years of the company’s audio research and development. A revolutionary new HF diaphragm and waveguide have been combined with a single magnet to deliver notable performance advantages.
Providing wider high frequency directivity, the HF diaphragm and the precision engineered Torus Ogive Waveguide™ have been brought further forward. Based on innovative new patent pending design principles, the shallower waveguide improves LF performance, giving more headroom and enabling a higher crossover point. Essential to achieving the desired directivity improvements, the wave-front expands at faster rate, delivering articulate and precise reproduction, both on and off-axis, through closer acoustic-centre alignment and phase coherence.
