TANNOY REVOLUTION XT-C (MEDIUM OAK)
Introduction - Revolution XT
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.
XT is a true Revolution in loudspeaker design.
With a range spanning 100mm (4.00”), 150mm (6.00”) and flagship 200mm (8.00”) Dual Concentric drivers, Revolution XT is offered in a five-strong range to ensure there is a perfect model for every home. Available in Medium Oak or Dark Walnut real wood veneers, Tannoy’s legendary quality of finish is further enhanced with magnetic grille mounts and subtle trim detailing. From the compact Revolution XT Mini stand-mount loudspeaker to the imposing Revolution XT 8F floorstanding model, the range delivers unrivalled musical articulation and outstanding dynamics.
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.
The Omnimagnet Dual Concentric is a radical evolution of Tannoy’s signature driver.
The new Dual’s wider and more even dispersion pattern has a profoundly positive effect on imaging and the improved phase coherence ensures a natural and expansive sound. The revised (shallower) cone design and potent Omnimagnet motor deliver even smoother bass performance with exceptional transient attack. Used exclusively in the new Revolution XT series, the Omnimagnet Dual Concentric driver opens another illustrious chapter in the development of Tannoy’s driver technology.
Turn your Revolution XT series loudspeakers into a surround system for movies and multi-channel music with the Revolution XT C. Designed as a centre channel loudspeaker ideal for dialogue and centre-stage vocal reproduction, the XT C features the compact 100mm (4.00”) Omnimagnet Dual Concentric driver from the XT Mini for supremely articulate presentation in any room. The Omnimagnet dual is augmented with twin 100mm (4.00”) mid/bass drivers to deliver deep bass reproduction down to 62Hz, bringing authentic presence to movie dialogue.
The compact 7.6litre XT C cabinet utilises the low colouration trapezoid shape that defines the Revolution range, with extensive bracing to further enhance accuracy across the audio band. A unique variation on the XT-series plinth has been designed specifically for the XT C, allowing the speaker to be angled low, mid or high depending on its placement relative to the listener. The three-point contact with the speaker provides stable support whether the XT C is placed below or above a TV screen or directly behind an acoustically transparent projection screen.
The Revolution XT C is available in Dark Walnut or Medium Oak colours to compliment all other stereo models in the Revolution XT series. The premium real wood veneer is finished to the highest standards with trim detailing second to no other centre channel speaker in its class. Engraved driver trim and Tannoy badge, embossed driver bolts, satin finish plinth and adjustable aluminium support cones add to the luxurious build quality. Like all models in the Revolution XT series, the XT C features seamless magnetic grille mounts and a dark cloth full baffle grilles for seamless installation in any AV or multi-channel system.
