Two new "extreme climate" speakers introduced by Revel
Harman's Revel brand has introduced the 8-inch C383XC and 6.5-inch C363XC extreme climate flush-mount loudspeakers, meant to excel in areas that are hot, cold, damp, humid or wet, such as showers, saunas and outdoors. The two new speakers are hyped by the company as "the first in a new range of extreme climate loudspeakers from Revel."
The company said the two new models, which can fit into a space less than 2.8 inches deep, are resistant to corrosion from salt water and can be deployed in marine applications. They meet 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."
More info from the press release:
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 ($500 each) and C363XC ($350 each) will be available by month's end.
