Default Revel Performa3 F208's

New pair of speakers on the way. The F208's should be here next Friday. Here is a pic of them at the dealers. I should also be receiving a modwright KWI-200 next Friday. The first one I received was a used one, it had a protection circuit issue. Dan Modwright sent me a over night air shipping label and is sending me a brand new unit. That's what I call great customer service.

Very interested to hear your take on these. Have you owned previous Revel products to compare them to?

Congrats!
The new Performa line looks like a very high performer for the reasonable cost of the speakers.

No I haven't, I have a buddy in town that had Ultima Studio2's. I really liked them and am not expecting 100% the sound of Ultima2's but am hoping it has the same sound sig. I am pretty excited to compare to the Magnepan 3.6's I currently also own. I haven't owned a dynamic driver speaker in a few years so it will also be fun hearing the punchier bass. Here is the frequency response from revels

Here are some pics of the new setup. Nothing is broke in yet so I am trying not to judge to harshly yet. The first pic still has the protective film on the speakers.
