Revel M12 opinions?

Jul 8, 2020
In a lot of my hobbies it seems like you can find a lot of value going back 1-2 generations of products. With that in mind, does anyone have any opinions about the original Revel Concerta line? Is it worth trying to track down a pair of M12s, or are they not really worth it compared to say a pair of M16s?

If the M12 is the same generation as the Performa 2 M22, then I would probably pass. IIRC Revel took a step back from the Performa to Performa 2 generation in terms of measurements, the tonality was notably worse. Most Revel owners who have owned both will tell you the same. I think they were doing some cost cutting that generation because the speakers lost half their mass in some of their lineups and curved baffles were replaced with flat/boxy ones.
