A value-packed in-wall speaker from Revel
Revel offers a wide range of high-performance in-wall speakers for stereo and home theater systems. The W283 is one of their least expensive models, but it shares some of the same technologies as Revel’s higher-end speakers, including an integrated tweeter waveguide that provides great sound for listeners directly in front of the speaker as well as those positioned off to the side. And its high-order crossover network allows the beefy 8″ woofer and 1″ tweeter to blend together seamlessly.
Revel’s W283 in-wall speaker features an integrated tweeter waveguide, which provides excellent sound across a wide area.
