The Revel portion of Harman’s business is reveling in a new speaker launch. The company just announced that they are now shipping the Harman Revel Architectural Series.
The new line of bezel-free in-wall and in-ceiling speakers features a sleek look and the company’s patented RollerLock tool-free installation mechanism. The RollerLock means that it these speakers can handle almost any wall thickness and a variety of construction methods.
Besides the quality, the Architectural Series is pretty big on quantity as well. Featuring 21 different models, this line can handle almost any type of install. The Architectural Series includes 11 in-wall models that range from a 6.5-inch-woofer 2-way to a 9-inch-woofer 3-way speaker, as well as 10 in-ceiling models, ranging from a 4-inch-woofer 2-way to a 3-way LCR speaker.
All of the speakers have Zero-Bezel magnetic grilles that attach magnetically. The in-ceiling models come with both round and square Zero-Bezel grilles.
Boasting high-end driver technologies, aluminum-dome tweeters, Micro Ceramic Composite (MCC) woofers, and Revel’s CAI waveguide, Harman says that any of these models can deliver a more natural sound.
Designed as a complement to the company’s Ultima2, Performa and Concerta floorstanding, monitor and center channel loudspeakers, all of the in-ceiling models (except the C540) are available now. Expect the in-walls to start shipping in June.
