The 802 is the largest speaker in the Reveal range. It features an 8-inch bass driver and a 1-inch tweeter, with a rubberised padded base incorporated to provide acoustic isolation and a more balanced low end.
Around the back you can connect balanced (3-pin) or unbalanced (1/4-inch) input sources, while a rocker switch enables you to select a natural frequency response or additional offset options to increase or decrease treble balance. The final option supplied on the rear panel is a proximity switch, which lets you adjust bass response depending on the distance of your speakers to walls behind them.
The 802s deliver punchy bass response with an extremely rounded tone. Equally pleasing is that the top-end is more discreet than we were expecting. Stereo imaging is good, too, with a wide listening sweet spot and a pleasing depth of field.
These are fine speakers for the price. Regardless of the volume at which you like to mix, you can be sure that the nuances and subtleties you're putting into your music will be accurately represented. 45 Stars
