Tannoy Upgrades Popular Revolution Loudspeakers

The revolutionary new loudspeaker design can be seen and heard at booth #600 during the CEDIA Expo.

Kitchener, Ontario (October 2014) - Tannoy has launched the Revolution XT Series, a dramatic upgrade to Tannoy's best-selling Revolution loudspeakers. The announcement was made by TC Group Vice President of Residential Communications Tim Chapman.


While the unique, trapezoidal shape of the original Revolution cabinet remains, the engineering team at Tannoy has implemented radical acoustic engineering and new patent-pending Tannoy technologies into the new loudspeaker series.

Based on the new Omnimagnet powered Dual ConcentricTM driver, Revolution XT enclosures deliver a natural and engaging sound with exceptional imaging, wide HF dispersion and deep, articulate bass.

Hand built with premium audiophile components, the crossover's simple, straight design philosophy provides an ultra-clean signal path to retain the utmost musical information. Large, gold-plated bi-wire binding posts allow a solid cable connection for reliable signal transfer.

The Revolution XT 6F and XT 8F floorstanding models feature two chambers which utilize an innovative internal port system that provides acoustically beneficial cabinet rigidity. The dual-cavity coupled reflex system optimizes driver performance throughout the entire bandwidth while reducing adverse low-frequency standing waves.

LF energy exits from an angled down-firing port at the base of the floorstanding models, spreading into the room between the cabinet and the integrated plinth. The design facilitates easier loudspeaker placement almost immune to room boundary effects while delivering musically coherent bass reproduction.

The handcrafted cabinets are available in a choice of dark walnut or medium oak real wood veneers. The series consists of the XT Mini (4-inch bookshelf), the XT 6 (6-inch bookshelf), the XT 6F(6-inch floorstand), the XT 8F (8-inch floorstand) and the XT C (center channel).
