Hidden Solutions from Revel

Revel Speakers, well-known for their high-end performance, has released the Architectural Series, a complete line of 21 in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Their sleek design blends seamlessly into any room, and features a patented RollerLock tool-free installation mechanism.

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. The speakers incorporate technologies that are integral to Revel's high-end in-room speakers, such as low-distortion tweeter design and waveguides.

“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 A/V.

The speakers' aluminum-dome tweeters are mounted in a waveguide, that according to Revel, provides a more seamless blend between the tweeter and woofer output. The in-ceiling waveguides are mounted in an offset position, which reduces acoustic anomalies that are common with in-ceiling placement. The woofers use Micro Ceramic Composite (MCC) cone material, which enhances resolution, accuracy, and transient response by combining strength and stiffness in a light weight design.

All Revel Architectural Series models feature an exclusive, 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, for an elegant, unobtrusive appearance. 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.

Prices range from $200 to $1,749 each. All but one in-ceiling model is shipping. The in-wall models will be available in June. Contact your local Revel dealer for more details and precise availability.
