Revel makes speakers all across the price branch.
All of them are of great build and sound quality. They have a special 2pi anechoic room to test and measure their speakers. Lots of engineering go into Revel’s brand.
The W263 starts at $225.
The W990 sells for $2000.
I think that the W783 is a good middle pick at $600. 8” woofer, very nice crossover, plenty of adjustment features to adapt to every room.
You’ll get plenty of output from it.
If you wanted to push your budget a little more, to $1000 a piece or so, the C893 has a 9” woofer, it’s a 3 way design, even better crossover and more features.
You’ll get even more output from that one.
And you can get Revel discounted by a dealer, upwards of 30% which puts money back in your pocket, or better speakers in your wall for the same money you would have spent retail!
I think you should try for an atmos system if at all possible. 5.1.4 is a nicer experience than 7.1 IMO.
Revel makes in ceiling speakers to match which is always good.
Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)
