I'm sure they will be great, but I think it will be hard to ever beat the cost/performance of the original F208's. People have no idea what they are missing.....

Based on what has been said about the design and the measurements from past model, I would guess they improved dispersion hand off between midrange and tweeter drivers as there was a small flare at the hand off. We shall see if upper treble dispersion improves as its not been something any Revel speaker has done as well as some of it best peers.
The cabinets were fairly solid, so I can understand carrying them over. I don't know what the new crossover concepts will result in, but time will tell.
As for the Focal comparison, I've listened to Focal in the past and its quite a different speaker. A more forward sound with an emphasis and treble air and detail. You can hear on certain models, they've forgone integration of system for other traits. This can result in disjointed bass and splashy treble. With that said, Focal does accomplish on getting a well embellished midrange, which is a foundation to everything else. I just didn't care for them as much as they don't quite get out of the way and let the music speak for itself. Something Revel seems to understand a bit better.
