“We were big fans of the Revolution DC6T SEs, but the new XT6Fs are a definite step up in quality. They are beautifully finished, but more importantly they sound every bit of their asking price.We urge you to give them an audition.”

“The Tannoy Revolution XT are extremely easy to supply in power and will provide you with an extremely convincing listening experience with both small and extremely powerful amplifiers. The Dual Concentric technology is perfectly tuned and opens the sound stage right in front of you. These speakers will please whoever is looking for a detailed, dynamic and non-stressful sound.”
 – Son-Video.com (read the review)“Simply put, the XT6s are an enthralling, exciting, and musically rewarding listen… The musicality of the XT6s is simply astounding. Place these at the forefront of your system and you certainly won’t be disappointed. I’m thrilled to have a new pair of Tannoys on the review stands, and I couldn’t be happier with the performance of the XT6s. Highly recommended!”

Tannoy Revolution XT 6F Loudspeaker
The smaller of two prestigious floorstanding models in the Revolution XT range, the Revolution XT 6F is a compact loudspeaker that delivers a dynamic full-range performance. Its 150mm (6.00”) Omnimagnet Dual Concentric driver is augmented with a matching 150mm (6.00”) bass driver to deliver LF extension down to below 40Hz. Both the Omnimagnet Dual, with its 25mm Linear PEI dome HF unit and Torus-Ogive waveguide, and the auxiliary driver feature a multi-fibre cone with rubber surround and a 44mm edge wound voice coil to ensure seamless bass performance. The Revolution XT 6F crossover uses low loss laminated core inductors and audiophile components throughout and further benefits from high purity oxygen free copper (OFC), silver plated wiring.

The 31.1 litre Revolution XT 6F cabinet utilises the most compact iteration of Tannoy new twin-cavity coupled reflex system, featuring separate cavities coupled internally by tuned ports. Bass energy exits from a down-firing port between the angled base of the cabinet and the integrated plinth. The precisely engineered angle of the ‘waveguide’ formed between cabinet and plinth encourages LF energy to disperse forward into the room, making closer-to-wall placement of the speaker than is typically possible without major detrimental effect on sound quality. The result is tight and articular bass with exceptional power and extension whatever you room layout or loudspeaker placement requirements.


Each Revolution XT 6F cabinet is offered in Medium Oak or Dark Walnut real wood veneer, hand finished to the same exacting standards expected of bespoke cabinetry. The Omnimagnet driver is finished with an etched trim ring and driver bolts that contrast the black driver chassis. For a more subtle aesthetic, magnetic grille mounts are installed below the veneer to ensure a smooth and uncluttered appearance on the front baffle and easy fitment of the supplied grille. Revolution XT 6F is Tannoy’s most affordable Dual Concentric floorstanding loudspeaker, yet offers the unrivalled performance and outstanding finish that Tannoy owners have come to expect.
