Sounds like they may have cut/paste from an older manual.

The important information here is that a Revel product actually came in good packaging! They have been making world class loudspeakers and shipping them in third world style boxes....hard to get much worse really. A friend took delivery on 4 new pairs of F208's drop shipped from Revel before a pair arrived that wasn't demolished. I'll be anxious to see what the mentioned new cases look like.....
-6dB and -10dB are throw away specs imo. The only one that is really telling is the -3dB. If the -3dB spec is accurate, then the speaker does not do deep bass. You will need to add a subwoofer if you want to capture the spatial information that reveals much more of the hall, acoustics of the space.
No problem; there are many subs available to do so, including some from Revel.
The Revel site just updated the specs for the F328Be...
Frequency response: 26Hz - 40kHz (-6dB)
Low-frequency extension: 24Hz (-10dB); 26Hz (-6dB); 35Hz (-3dB)
Again, doesn’t jive with the manual specs but I’m betting these are the accurate numbers vs the manual for a speaker of this size. I’m about 2 weeks in & listen to them about 4 hours a day & I am absolutely loving them. Pure muscle & punishing authority while also revealing the smallest little detail in recordings. They dig so deep with bass that my large room (26’x17’ with 22’ sloped ceiling) feels like there are multiple subs in here. And the beryllium tweeter is so smooth & handling every challenging recording I’ve thrown at it without effort. I don’t know how else to explain it but they are truly special.
