The flagship revolution XT 8F is a substantial floorstanding loudspeaker offering the scale and dynamics of real live music in a loudspeaker that looks every bit as good as it sounds. The combination of a 200mm (8.00”) Dual Concentric driver and a 200mm (8.00”) auxiliary bass driver is a configuration that has found exceptional success throughout Tannoy’s illustrious history and the Revolution XT 8F builds on these strengths. The new Omnimagnet Dual further refines bass performance with its linear LF response and exceptional timbre accuracy, while its new HF section with Torus-Ogive waveguide delivers smooth HF extension with outstanding imaging. The Revolution XT 8F 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 49.4 litre Revolution XT 8F cabinet houses the largest iteration of Tannoy new dual-cavity coupled reflex system, featuring separate cavities coupled internally by tuned ports. Bass energy exits from a tuned 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 articulate bass with exceptional power and extension down to 34Hz. With an overall loudspeaker efficiency of 91dB/watt and 400Watt peak power handling, the Revolution XT 8F is nothing short of breath-taking in its dynamics and realism.
Each Revolution XT 8F cabinet is offered in Medium Oak or Dark Walnut real wood veneer, hand finished to the same exacting standards that Tannoy demands of it premium models and world-renowned Prestige series. The 200mm Omnimagnet driver is finished with an etched trim ring and driver bolts that contrast the black driver chassis. Magnetic grille mounts are installed below the veneer to ensure a smooth and uncluttered appearance across the front baffle and afford easy fitment of the grille for a more subtle look. Revolution XT 8F is a worthy flagship of the dramatic new Revolution XT series, combining classic Tannoy values of dynamics and musical articulation with exceptional smoothness and class-leading imaging of the new Omnimagnet Dual Concentric driver.
