Revolution XT is the latest development of TANNOY’s most affordable loudspeaker to feature the world renowned Dual Concentric driver. The XT is a true ‘revolution’ of the series, featuring an all-new ‘Dual’ with some of the most significant and fundamental design changes in the driver’s near 60-year history. While retaining Revolution’s familiar trapezoid cabinet shape, wide-ranging changes to Revolution XT’s internal design make for a completely new and unique loudspeaker concept.
TANNOY’s pioneering Twin-cavity coupled reflex system and down-firing external port delivers the Revolution series’ most tuneful and musically coherent bass to date, while the integrated plinth further improves transient attack and overall stability. The new Dual, with its Omnimagnet motor and class-leading dispersion characteristics, has been partnered with a new series of audiophile grade crossovers to realise the very best performance across the range.
The Revolution XT Dual Concentric driver represents a major revision of TANNOY’s long standing and well regarded coaxial driver technology. While retaining the Dual’s fundamental benefits of class-leading coherence and point-source imaging, the new driver technology delivers exceptional smoothness and even further improved imaging. The Omnimagnet Dual Concentric is a completely new interpretation of this proprietary point-source drive unit, combining a revolution new HF diaphragm and waveguide with a single magnet that energises both the HF and LF coils.
The HF dome is Torus (donut) shaped allowing it to be placed further forward in the throat of the driver. An Ogive (bullet) shaped phase plug sits in front of the diaphragm which assists in shortening the propagation path of HF waves. The Torus Ogive waveguide has a more aggressive flare than previous ‘tulip’ shaped Dual Concentric waveguides which expands wave front propagation through the cone of the bass driver. The result is a shortened acoustic path through the driver and greater phase coherence between HF and LF.
Yet the most significant advances to the Revolution XT’s cabinet are on the inside. Following three years of R&D, TANNOY has developed a unique twin-cavity reflex system that optimised driver performance from extremely low to mid frequencies using balanced back-pressure damping. The system also dramatically reduces vertical standing waves within the cabinet, leading to exceptional tight and controlled bass down to the lowest organ notes. On the floorstanding models, LF energy exits from an angled down-firing port, diffusing into the room between the cabinet and the integrated plinth. In addition to outstanding bass reproduction, the design reduces room boundary effects and facilitates easy loudspeaker placement.
