Krell Introduces Revolution Series Speakers

Applying the same Lossless Acoustic Transducer (LAT) technology and design principles that are the foundation of the LAT Series loudspeakers, the Resolution Series marries state-of-the-art componentswith beautifully crafted cabinets to create a loudspeaker unlike any before it according to Krell.

Understanding that cabinet construction is as vital to the performance of a loudspeaker as the drivers and crossover network, the Resolution Series cabinets are a 1-inch thick MDF (medium densityfiberboard) while the baffles are 2-inch thick MDF ensuring the elimination of baffle resonance. Midrange drivers are isolated within their own enclosures and the speaker’s internal bracing isasymmetrically aligned to further increase the cabinet’s rigidity. The curvature of the cabinets not only adds to their aesthetics, but also helps eliminate internal standing waves that can bedetrimental to sound quality.

Performance enhancements extend beyond the cabinet to the drivers and crossover networks. The Resolution Series’ 1-inch tweeters feature an integral “waveguide” for enhanced dispersioncharacteristics and the mid-bass drivers utilize a unique mounting system that decouples the driver frame from the baffle theoretically eliminating sonic colorations. Proprietary suspensions andextended voice coil structures assure linear performance, and the driver frames are made of a cast aluminum-magnesium alloy for high efficiency performance and prevent to overheating.

The Resolution Series utlizes a crossover network that acts like a natural extension to their amplifiers, effectively directing the power to the drivers unimpeded. All crossover components aremounted on 1/8-inch epoxy glass circuit boards and the multiple potted polypropylene capacitors are wired in parallel to minimize inductance and resistance causing less amplifier strain and makingthe speakers effortless to drive. The Resolution Series crossover networks are also engineered to provide a smooth impedance curve with high efficiency, thereby, presenting a predictable, nearlyideal load to the power amplifier says to Krell.

All of the Resolution speakers feature high quality, WBT binding posts for better connectivity and are available in a Cherry finish.
