No, the measurement system is very flawed when measuring dipolar pannel speakers. It's very hard to get the mike far enough away to have the differences in surface response average properly and still window out the first reflections of the room. If you move the speaker and mike outside you still have to move far enough that ambient sounds come into play as well as not averaging the frequency response of the back wave. The revels frequency response curve is probably a broadly accurate reflection of the speaker's frequency balance as it is basically a point source that is measured by a mike that is likewise a point source. Don't sweat this stuff though. What matters is what the speakers sound like to you. The Maggie is just fabulous and extremely well designed and excellent value for money as well as the Revel.
