An acoustically adaptable in-wall speaker
Revel’s W583 in-wall speaker combines accurate sound with versatile installation options. Its 1″ aluminum dome tweeter is aimable, so you can direct sound towards your listening position. The tweeter also has a three-position output level switch, which lets you tailor the sound to the acoustics of your room.
The W583 is an excellent choice for an in-wall stereo system, or as the left or right channel of a Revel home theater system. Its 8″ woofer blends smoothly with the tweeter, providing solid bass and natural midrange.
Revel’s W283 in-wall speaker features an integrated tweeter waveguide, which provides excellent sound across a wide area.
