The smaller of two prestigious floorstanding models in the Revolution XT range, the Revolution XT 6F is a compact loudspeaker that delivers a dynamic full-range performance. Its 150mm (6.00”) Omnimagnet Dual Concentric driver is augmented with a matching 150mm (6.00”) bass driver to deliver LF extension down to below 40Hz. Both the Omnimagnet Dual, with its 25mm Linear PEI dome HF unit and Torus-Ogive waveguide, and the auxiliary driver feature a multi-fibre cone with rubber surround and a 44mm edge wound voice coil to ensure seamless bass performance. The Revolution XT 6F crossover uses low loss laminated core inductors and audiophile components throughout and further benefits from high purity oxygen free copper (OFC), silver plated wiring.
The 31.1 litre Revolution XT 6F cabinet utilises the most compact iteration of Tannoy new twin-cavity coupled reflex system, featuring separate cavities coupled internally by tuned ports. Bass energy exits from a down-firing port between the angled base of the cabinet and the integrated plinth. The precisely engineered angle of the ‘waveguide’ formed between cabinet and plinth encourages LF energy to disperse forward into the room, making closer-to-wall placement of the speaker than is typically possible without major detrimental effect on sound quality. The result is tight and articular bass with exceptional power and extension whatever you room layout or loudspeaker placement requirements.
Each Revolution XT 6F cabinet is offered in Medium Oak or Dark Walnut real wood veneer, hand finished to the same exacting standards expected of bespoke cabinetry. The Omnimagnet driver is finished with an etched trim ring and driver bolts that contrast the black driver chassis. For a more subtle aesthetic, magnetic grille mounts are installed below the veneer to ensure a smooth and uncluttered appearance on the front baffle and easy fitment of the supplied grille. Revolution XT 6F is Tannoy’s most affordable Dual Concentric floorstanding loudspeaker, yet offers the unrivalled performance and outstanding finish that Tannoy owners have come to expect.
I downgraded to these speakers, having come from B&W802 D2s - many times the price of the Tannoys. After trying a few other pairs of slightly cheaper speakers, none of which was much chop, I found these.Wow! These really are brilliant speakers. 5 stars all the way...!When What Hi-Fi said they have an ‘infectious’ sound, they were right. I’d describe it as more like a drug addiction. They make you crave more of them - more of the same.The real timber veneer finish is also excellent.Analogue Seduction’s service and shipping was also 10/10. Thank you.
