Harman Luxury Audio Expands Revel PerformaBe Line

Harman Luxury Audio Group is introducing the latest addition to the Revel PerformaBe line of loudspeakers: the PerformaBe Architectural Series.

Revel W226Be 2-way Dual 6.5-inch In-wall PerformaBe Architectural Series model

At CEDIA Expo 2023, Booth 2512, Harman Luxury Audio Group is introducing the latest addition to the Revel PerformaBe line of loudspeakers: the PerformaBe Architectural Series. These high-end architectural loudspeakers utilize the same beryllium dome tweeters, advanced Acoustic Lens waveguides, and patented Revel DNA for which the PerformaBe line is known. The result is a shared sonic signature that allows PerformaBe architectural, floorstanding, and bookshelf loudspeakers to be mixed in a system.

The PerformaBe Architectural Series consists of three in-wall models–the 2-way 6.5-inch W126Be, 2-way dual 6.5-inch W226Be, and 3-way dual eight-inch W228Be–and one in-ceiling model: the 2-way eight-inch C128Be. At the heart of the speakers’ pristine sound lies a one-inch beryllium tweeter driven by a powerful ferrite motor assembly. The tweeter and ceramic-coated, cast-aluminum Acoustic Lens waveguide seamlessly integrate with the directivity of the speakers’ Deep Ceramic Composite (DCC(tm)) aluminum woofer and mid-frequency driver cones for greater bandwidth, less compression, improved dynamic range, reduced distortion, and increased power handling. A high-order crossover design allows the smallest nuances and details from music to be heard and includes a high-frequency attenuation switch to further tailor the sound to the room.

The largest model in the range–the W228Be–shares an identical dual eight-inch three-way driver configuration with the award-winning F228Be floorstanding loudspeaker, but with the tweeter and midrange drivers mounted on a rotatable module located in the center of the baffle between the two woofers. This allows the W228Be to be used either vertically as a main channel loudspeaker, or horizontally as a center channel when the tweeter/midrange module is positioned for such use. This flexibility makes the W228Be ideal for use as an in-wall LCR system, or as a perfectly matched in-wall center channel when paired with either the F228Be or F328Be floorstanding loudspeakers.

Revel C128Be 2-way eight-inch In-ceiling PerformaBe Architectural Series model

The W126Be, W226Be, W228Be, and C12Be are each available with an optional integrated back box enclosure for consistent performance and reduced noise ingress into adjacent spaces. The loudspeakers feature a patented Cat Claw mounting system that makes installation far easier than traditional dog leg designs, and mounting depths that fit within standard four-inch wall and six-inch ceiling stud bays. Preconstruction brackets are available for all models as well.

The Revel PerformaBe Architectural Series will be available in the fourth quarter.
