Revel Performa3 bookshelf loudspeakers are true full-range loudspeakers that feature small footprints and sleek designs, allowing them to blend-in easily with your existing décor. They deliver an impressively wide frequency range, uncompressed dynamic range and low distortion across the entire audible spectrum.
- Transducers feature motor-system distortion-reduction mechanisms that stabilize the flux field during operation
- Ribbed aluminium cones achieve piston like behaviour eliminating major sources of resonance
- New waveguides provide consistent sound over a wide listening area
- 1"-thick cabinet walls with extensive internal bracing
- Enclosures created by Italian luxury cabinetmakers
- Fluid-model port designs keep distortion low
- Advanced crossovers optimize timbre accuracy both on-axis and throughout the room
- Supplied as a pair

"I found the sound of the Revel Performa3 M106 difficult to describe. No matter what music I played, I could hear no shortcomings—no deviation from neutrality throughout the speaker's extended frequency range, and every recording revealed the review samples to be detailed, dynamic performers with superb soundstaging."
"I was also floored by the M106's ability to play loud, which reminded me more of expensive floorstanding speakers than of the affordable bookshelf model that it is."
The Revel Performa3 Series is a comprehensive collection of loudspeakers and subwoofers that blend superior audio performance and stunning aesthetics. They don’t sound like other speakers because they aren’t crafted, engineered or tested like other speakers.
Whether you enjoy music or movies, Revel Performa3 loudspeakers offer astounding performance, remarkable value and zero compromises.
Revel M106 low-frequency transducers feature distortion reduction mechanisms that stabilize the flux field during operation, assuring low distortion even at high listening volumes. These precision transducers utilize ribbed aluminium cones for ideal piston-like behaviour that eliminates a major source of resonances that are clearly audible in most other loudspeakers. Their cast aluminium frames eliminate another source of resonances that is common in many lesser-quality loudspeakers.
The M106's tweeter has been created around a newly designed motor and dome assembly that sets a new standard of transparency for speakers anywhere near the Performa3’s class. The tweeter’s integrated acoustic lens waveguide is based on a breakthrough mathematical approach that accurately matches the tweeter’s dispersion to that of the low-frequency transducer in the crossover region.
This gives the loudspeaker very smooth sound far off-axis – an important contributor to overall sound quality, providing consistent sound over an exceptionally wide listening area. In fact, this new waveguide actually increases the tweeter’s dispersion at higher frequencies.
The M106 is housed in enclosures that are similar to Revel's flagship Ultima2 Series. These fully-curved enclosures are inherently stiffer than conventional box shapes and are formed with contiguous wood layers that prevent splitting. They feature strategically-oriented bracing that eliminates the possibility of enclosure-induced colouration. These beautiful, modern enclosures are finished in high-gloss piano black in a process (developed and overseen by Italian luxury cabinet makers) that exceeds automotive finish quality.
The loudspeaker grilles are designed to minimize sonic diffraction or veiling and provide a clean, subtle appearance. The magnetic grille attachment method completely eliminates ugly hardware on the loudspeaker baffle, so if you decide to use the loudspeakers without grilles, they will still look fantastic.

High-order crossovers dramatically reduce distortion and dynamic compression in Performa3 Series loudspeakers. The result is cleaner sound and consistent sound quality over a wide dynamic range. These advanced crossovers also optimize timbre accuracy, enhancing the listener's musical enjoyment both on-axis and throughout the room. Carefully selected crossover components help Performa3 loudspeakers achieve exceptional performance while establishing the benchmark for value.
The M106 model incorporates sophisticated, fluid-model port designs. With identical flares on both ends, these rear-firing ports keep distortion low by greatly minimizing dynamic compression and port-generated noise.
During development, every Revel loudspeaker model is compared head-to-head with competitive models in the world’s only position-independent, double-blind listening facility. True research-quality processes assure the validity of the listening tests, which employ the latest psychoacoustic research. All Revel Performa3 loudspeakers are proven to be superior to their market competitors before they go into production.
The Revel Performa3 Series is a comprehensive collection of loudspeakers and subwoofers that blend superior audio performance and stunning aesthetics. The Revel Performa3 Loudspeaker series has garnered more than 20 awards and numerous impressive reviews since its introduction. The series is noted for its unmatched performance and beautiful construction, boasting features not commonly found on loudspeakers in this price range. Available in stunning high gloss finishes, the Performa3 series doesn't sound like other speakers because they aren't engineered or tested like other speakers. Whether you enjoy music or movies, Revel Performa3 loudspeakers offer astounding performance, remarkable value and zero compromises.
Revel was launched in 1996 with one goal, to create the world’s finest loudspeakers. To accomplish such a goal, the resources and expertise of Harman International were put to the task. Parameters such as cost and off-the-shelf parts were eliminated from the equation. Left were world-leading research and the freedom to craft loudspeakers utilizing science while maintaining sonic integrity.
