Revel F328Be's Have Arrived! / Contradicting Specs?


Well I'm only about 8 hours in with my new Revel F328Be's & I am enjoying them & they are flat out awesome. They are replacing a pair of KEF R11's in my main system which I will be moving to another system as I still think the R11's are fantastic performers. That said, the new F328Be is in another league right out of the box. More finesse, more muscle, more detail than the R11 which I think will even widen as the Revel's continue to break in. And I wish we could post pictures here because I was floored by how they arrived...they come in a heavy duty flight road case, one for each speaker with custom lettering outlining the Revel F328Be. Each case & speaker weighs over 200lbs so when the 19 year old delivery service kid showed up with no dolly, ramp or even a box cutter to unwrap the cases I knew I would be helping to get these in the house.
On a side note, I know these speakers are brand new but Revel does appear to have some contradicting specs that has left me wondering what the true specs are? For example...
-The Revel site has not yet published the frequency range for the F328 so I asked several dealers & they both came back & said the Revel rep said 26Hz - 40khz at -6db. However the manual that came with the speakers states 32Hz - 40khz at -6db? Per the manual it also states the low-frequency extension is 25Hz (-10db); 32Hz (-6db); 44Hz (-3db)
-There is also a discrepancy with the weight of the speaker...the site says 90 lbs. but the manual lists each speaker at 112 lbs which I find much more accurate after moving them around yesterday.
-The speaker dimensions are also off between the site & the manual...the Revel site lists it as 13.5" wide & the manual states 11.83". And depth on the site is listed at 17.6" while the manual states 16.56". (both the site & the manual list these measurements with grille included).
Just thought I would get this info out so you can keep it in mind if you are considering the F328Be. I want to also publicly thank Jay O'Hanlon from XTend Technologies in Cleveland for his outstanding service & assistance, I would highly recommend Jay & XTend. Thanks

Sounds like they may have cut/paste from an older manual.
You can verify the dimensions yourself and as dr toole says bass output is more room dependent than the speakers below 300 hz.  Congratulations on the new speakers, I’ve always liked revel 
puzzling specs as even f208s F3 is 31Hz
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. 
Even the -3 dB specs are subject to proper placement and room boundaries.
Revel has always been a seriously disjointed company.  In not surprised about these discrepancies.
what do your ears tell you?  does it sound good?  do you like the way it sounds using your music?

if you answered, yes what difference does what the specs say in the end.

manufacturers can make specs say whatever they want.

given their scientific approach I hardly believe revel make up their specs
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.
