Tannoy Revolution XT Mini Bookshelf Speakers
Exquisite sound and style come naturally to the Tannoy Revolution XT Mini speakers
Tannoy's famous dual concentric design for total accuracy
The Revolution XT Mini speakers make excellent use of Tannoy's famous Dual Concentric drive units. By placing the tweeters within the throat of the main woofers, the speakers offer a single point source for crucial high and mid-range frequencies. The result is a consistency and realism of sound and incredible spaciousness for such small speakers.
Innovative drive unit design
The tweeters are new PEI domes with Torus-Ogive WaveGuide technology. The waveguides offer smooth treble extension and pin-point precison. The woofers' feature new Omnimagnet technology. This gives superior cone control for a more precise mid-range response.
As well as the exceptional drive unit quality, the Tannoy offers innovative cabinet design. The trapezoid-shaped cabinets not only look good but also improve sound quality by countering internal standing waves. This reduces distortion, for a less 'boxy' sound quality. Heavily braced and highly rigid, the Revolution XT Mini speakers offer low colouration and realism of sound like few others at their price.
These sub-mini sized speakers are exceptionally versatile. You can use them in a complete Tannoy Revolution XT surround sound system as rear and effect speakers or in a 5.1 Revolution XT system with XTC Centre and Tannoy subwoofer. Alternatively, such is their ability, they also work brilliantly in a small room or on a desktop as stereo speakers.
With a choice of Espresso Dark Walnut or Medium Oak, real wood veneers, the XT Mini speakers are equal in finish to many more expensive speakers. The hand-treated veneers are finished to the same exacting standards that Tannoy demands of its premium models and world-renowned Prestige series. Tannoy's typical attention to detail also extends to magnetic grille attachment, an etched trim ring and even 'Tannoy' branded bolt heads. Everything about them is first-rate.

Speaker Enclosure TypeType of speaker enclosure. Infinite baffle cabinets are sealed and so are often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power to drive, though. Bass reflex speakers are usually more efficient than infinite baffle designs but may require more care in terms of placement. Rear port designs, in particular, usually need at least 15-30cm (6 - 12 inches) between them and the wall behind, for a balanced bass response.Bass reflex - rear port
