Exceptional performance from a powerful mid-sized sub
It may seem counterintuitive, but one way to tell a mediocre subwoofer from a great one is that you can easily pinpoint the location of the mediocre model, while it's nearly impossible to know where the good one is located. That's because a high-quality subwoofer can blend clear, effortlessly musical bass into your audio system. The Revel Concerta2 B10 has what it takes to hit this benchmark, and more.
The B10 reproduces deep, realistic bass with very low distortion — even at the lowest frequencies and at high output levels. Its 10" front-firing woofer and mighty 800-watt amplifier are a potent combination.
The Revel Concerta2 B10 packs an incredible 800-watt RMS amplifier into a relatively compact enclosure (shown in High Gloss Black).
Part of the B10's excellent sound is attributed to its meticulous build quality. It uses medium-density fiberboard (MDF) walls and extensive internal bracing to reduce cabinet-induced colorations.
Rubber padded feet are attached to the bottom of the cabinet for optimal stability, accommodating installations on any floor surface.
Latest-generation port design
The Concerta2 series uses a patented Constant Pressure Gradient (CPG) technology in the port design. The inner wall of the port is contoured, allowing the change in pressure along the axis of the port from inlet to outlet duct to stay constant. This design allows more consistent performance at different volume levels, and it helps keep output high and distortion low.
The Concerta2 B10 features parametric room equalization controls that let you fine-tune your subwoofer's sound.
Optimize bass response for your room
Nearly all powered subwoofers give you level and crossover adjustments. But a scarce few provide any real hands-on control of the sound beyond that. That's because sophisticated EQ and slope adjustments are difficult and expensive to implement. Revel considers these an essential part of the subwoofer experience.
On the B10's back panel you'll find parametric room equalization controls that let you fine-tune the sound for your system and for your room. The really cool part? You get free lifetime tech support with your sub purchase from Crutchfield, so we can help you dial things in to get the best sound.
Tested by instrument and by ear
Revel's world-class speaker design and testing facility features an anechoic chamber and the latest high-tech measurement gear. But some of their most critical test instruments are the ears of their trained listening panel. When working on a new design, Revel's engineers set up a series of controlled auditions comparing their design to several competing speakers.
Speakers under comparison sit on a rotating platform, and each model is moved into the identical position by a computer-controlled belt drive system. An acoustically transparent screen hides the speakers from the listeners to avoid visual bias. These double-blind listening tests provide an essential reality check, and help the engineers correlate measurements with what listeners actually hear and prefer.
Who is Revel?
Revel is one of the high-performance audio companies of global electronics giant Harman International. Since 1996, Revel has used cutting-edge design tools and one-of-a-kind testing facilities to develop speakers that measure well and sound amazing. The intensive design work happens at Harman's state-of-the-art speaker R & D facility in Northridge, California.
