Harman Revel is now shipping its Architectural Series loudspeakers, a complete lineup of 21 in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, featuring a patented RollerLock tool-free installation mechanism.
The Harman Revel Architectural Series loudspeakers.
The Architectural Series includes 11 in-wall models from a 6.5-inch-woofer 2-way to a 9-inch-woofer 3-way speaker, and 10 in-ceiling models ranging from a 4-inch-woofer 2-way to a 3-way LCR speaker.
“Our new Architectural Series loudspeakers bring a unique combination of advantages to the custom-installation market – the exceptional sound quality Revel is noted for, along with unmatched ease of installation and a design that blends with any room,” said Jim Garrett, market manager, Harman High Performance AV.
All Revel Architectural Series models feature a newly developed RollerLock mounting mechanism that enables installation without any tools for clamping to the drywall. The RollerLock mechanism accommodates a wide range of wall thicknesses and construction methods. All the speakers have Zero-Bezel magnetic grilles that attach magnetically. The in-ceiling models come with both round and square Zero-Bezel grilles, to match any ceiling fixture and lighting, and the grilles can be painted if desired.
Aluminum-dome tweeters operate in conjunction with Revel’s CAI waveguide, which utilizes a series of computer-designed curves that are designed to provide a more seamless blend between the tweeter and the woofer and yield a more natural sound. In addition, the in-ceiling waveguides are mounted in an offset position that reduces the acoustic anomalies that can be caused by typical in-ceiling speaker tweeter placement.
The woofers are constructed using Micro Ceramic Composite (MCC) cone material, which is created by deep-anodizing both sides of an aluminum core.
All in-ceiling models (excluding the C540) are currently available. All in-wall models will be available in June 2011.
