Hales Revelation One Loudspeakers
The Hales Revelation series of loudspeakers represents the second generation of products from the Hales Design Group.
They have been designed with the dual purpose of providing the high-end performance Hales has been known for at more affordable prices and be optimized for home-theater applications too.
The Revelation One houses a 6.5" polypropylene woofer and a 1" aluminum-dome tweeter.
The Revelation One is 15" tall by 7.5" wide and a surprising 13" deep. It weighs in at 25.5 pounds and has a 1.5" port centered about 4" from the top of the back face of the speaker. The sturdy gold-plated binding posts are situated 2" from the bottom of the rear of the cabinet, and have the non-removable black signature Hales grilles.
The speaker is a bass-reflex design tuned to 42Hz. The crossover network is of the fourth-order Linkwitz-Riley design using air-core inductors and polypropylene capacitors. Rated sensitivity is 86dB (2.83V, 1m). Frequency response is stated as 40Hz-26kHz at 8 ohms, ambitious for a minimonitor.
One thing that obviously has a tremendous impact on the resultant sound of the Revelation One is the story of how the crossovers and drivers are selected. Each candidate crossover, woofer and tweeter is tested against a standard reference and graded.
Those tested components are then used in matched sets that are within .25dB of each other. The way Hales explains it, there is a reference crossover and drivers for the Revelation One on a raw-components test line. Each drive unit is tested against the reference unit and marked with one of three colored tags to indicate if it was right on, .25dB above or .25dB below the reference point. Any units that vary more than the .25dB deviation are not used. This represents extremely conscientious attention to detail not normally found until you hit speakers costing several times that of the little Revelation One.
