The Tannoy Revolution XT Mini Rear Surround Speaker may well qualify as the world’s smallest, true Dual Concentric speakers, delivering big performance in a small package. Boasting an easy-to-place 3.4 litre cabinet, the XT Mini further refines TANNOY's purist point-source philosophy by using a single Omnimagnet DC driver.
As audio enthusiasts, big-box speakers are loved near unanimously; big impressive boxes that rattle one’s fillings loose and make a big statement. There’s that word though, BIG, and sadly life often requires us to make sacrifices in terms of size and budget. Enter, the Tannoy Revolution XT Mini; a teeny-tiny speaker which promises big performance at an extremely reasonable price.

Benefits of Tannoy Revolution XT Mini Rear Surround Speaker:
Genuine Dual Concentric Performance
The Tannoy Revolution XT Mini Rear Surround Speaker is the smallest of the Tannoy Revolution XT line; Revolution XT represents Tannoy’s efforts to bring genuine Dual Concentric loudspeakers to an affordable price point. Tannoy’s Dual Concentric technology is the cornerstone of Tannoy’s heritage, and it’s great to see it in a package this small and accessible. Dual Concentric loudspeakers (and *only* Tannoy can call their speakers Dual Concentric) place the high-frequency driver at the centre of the mid/bass driver. This ensures the legendary phase coherence, time alignment and transparency that made Tannoy Dual Concentrics the monitoring choice of some of the world’s most famous studios.
Small on Size – Big on Quality
Tannoy’s baby Dual Concentric occupies a particularly compact footprint of just 272 x 152 x 199mm. In real world terms, they’re about half the size of a typical bookshelf speaker. This makes them ideal for situations where physical space is at an absolute premium. Got a home office? Need to gain some valuable desk space back? XT Mini! Need a pair of unobtrusive speakers for the bedroom perhaps? XT Mini! Their small size makes them *true* bookshelf speakers, in the modern sense – being barely larger than a hardback novel.
High Grade Cabinet
The highest attention to detail means artisan-quality veneering and the XT Mini is available in the highly attractive medium oak or dark walnut real wood veneer finish options.
The new plinth design adds mass to the speaker and mirrors the design found on the floorstanding models with down-firing bass reflex port.
The 10.8 litre cabinet is of heavy construction with extensive bracing to ensure exceptionally low colouration. At the rear are bi-wire terminals and the speakers are supplied with magnetic grilles.
Big speaker specifications in a Small package
Just because you’ve had to compromise on size, doesn’t mean you should have to compromise on sound or specification. To this end, the Tannoy Revolution XT Mini packs specifications worthy of larger speakers at larger price-points. Sensitivity is a credible 88db with recommended amplifier power 25-100w; a good pairing then for most any modern integrated amp, or indeed an excellent upgrade for a high-end ‘all in one’ system’s bundled speakers.
