Harman’s Revel C383XC and C363XC extreme climate flush-mount loudspeakers are designed to deliver high-performance sound in hot, cold, damp, humid, or wet locations.
The XC series is ideal for indoor locations such as showers and saunas, as well as outdoor locations including decks and screened porches, according to the company. Both models are resistant to corrosion from salt water and can be deployed in marine applications such as high-end yachts. The two XC series models are the first in a new range of extreme climate loudspeakers from Revel.
The C383XC 8-inch and C363XC 6.5-inch flush-mount loudspeakers can fit into a space less than 2.8 inches deep. Both models feature weatherized drivers and construction. Revel’s XC Series meets IP (International Protection Rating) 65 durability, meaning they are fully protected against dust and can be exposed to spray and low-pressure jets of water from all directions.
“We created the C383XC and C363XC to deliver the exceptional sound Revel is known for to extreme climates where up until now high-quality audio hasn’t been attainable,” said Jim Garrett, director of marketing and product management at Harman Luxury Audio. “The XC Series is designed to meet the demands of the harshest environments and provide consistent performance while also providing an attractive design that will blend into any environment.”
The Revel XC Series loudspeakers feature black aluminum-cone, cast-polymer-frame woofers, 1-inch black aluminum dome tweeters and high-order crossover networks for clear, detailed sound, with a smooth tonal balance and extremely low distortion and coloration over a wide dynamic range. The C383XC and C363XC are designed for easy installation. Both feature zero-bezel magnetic grilles for a modern design that provides an elegant and unobtrusive appearance.
In order to provide a consistent aesthetic, the Revel XC Series 8-inch and 6-1/2-inch round extreme climate grilles appear identical to those in the rest of the Revel Architectural Series and will also be available for use with any of Revel’s existing in-ceiling models of those two sizes.
The Revel C383XC and C363XC extreme climate flush-mount loudspeakers are available at suggested retail prices of $500 each and $350 each.
