Rev 10 vs Rev 8: Guidance


Recommended Posts

Back story - Last year I pulld the trigger on upgrading to REV8s on my boat. They came with LED lighting and on my 2006 VLX with titan tower they didnt hang to low. Fast fwd to this year and I have a 2007 with the illusion X tower. I pulled of my REV8s and have them sitting in the garage. My "unicorn/dream" speaker in my head has always been the REV10. Does anyone have any experience/wisdom on if jumping up to the dream would be worth the extra $$$? I can sell my current REV8s for 750.

Regardless of brand, you don't see as many people running a single pair of 8-inch HLCDs. It usually ends up being two pair. But with a 10-inch HLCD, running a single pair is very common, especially when that single pair is powered to their potential.

A 10-inch HLCD has more midbass extension, and a warmer tonal balance (even though it's still very much an HLCD). That is one difference that any quantity of smaller 8-inch HLCDs cannot duplicate.

I prefer a single pair anyway. There is a little more coherency when you don't have speakers at different levels of depth.
