Planning Your System
Revel® Concerta™ LCR8
Before deciding where to best place your speakers,
survey your room and study Figure 1. The LCR8 should
be placed directly above or below the TV.
The Revel® Concerta™ LCR8 loudspeaker is actually three
discrete speakers built into a single enclosure. The LCR8
incorporates the front left, center and right channels of
a home theater system. Simply add a Revel powered
subwoofer and satellite speakers for the surround channels
to complete a high-performance home entertainment
loudspeaker system. The horizontal design allows for
maximum placement flexibility.
Please read this owner’s manual completely before
connecting and operating the LCR8 all-in-one left, center,
right loudspeaker. Optimum performance is dependent upon
following these instructions, as well as those in the owner’s
manuals of associated components in your home theater
system. Save these instructions for future reference.

Finish unpacking the loudspeaker and check the
contents. If you suspect damage from transit, report
it immediately to your dealer. Keep the shipping
carton and packing materials for future use.
Figure 1: In this overhead view of a typical installation,
the LCR8 is used to reproduce the front channels, and
satellite loudspeakers are used to reproduce sound for
the surround channels. The powered subwoofer
reproduces low frequencies.
Please verify that the package contains the
following items:
Speaker bracket
(1) LCR8 loudspeaker
Part A
Part B
(2) Wall-mount end caps
(attached to the LCR8)
(1) Speaker base
(1) Allen wrench
Speaker base
(1) Wall bracket with wall bracket cover
Note: The Revel Concerta LCR8 is ideally suited for
use with a subwoofer. Contact your Revel dealer
for recommendations on subwoofer models for
your application.
Figure 2: This example shows the LCR8 mounted on its
bracket above a television and, alternatively, placed on
its base below the television and tilted up (see Figure 3).
Note: If placing the LCR8 on top of a television,
be sure the top of the television has a flat surface
large enough to accommodate the speaker
base. Do not set the speaker on top of any
surface without using the included base.

Tilting the Speaker
If needed, the enclosed stand allows you to tilt the
speaker across a wide range (i.e., upward to a maximum
of 18° or downward to a maximum of 7°), as shown in
Figure 3.
Important! Do not exceed the tilt range.
Doing so may cause the speaker to fall out
of its stand.
Wall-Mounting the LCR8
Using the Included Wall Bracket
Step One
Remove the wall bracket cover by removing the four
wall-bracket screws on the ends, as shown.
Step Two
Run the speaker wire for the left, center and right channels
behind the wall bracket and out through the holes in the
bracket. After deciding where to place the speaker, attach
the wall bracket (in a horizontal position) to the wall, using
the appropriate screws and anchors.

Step Six
Using the included Allen wrench, remove the top and
bottom end caps of the speaker by unscrewing the single
center screw on bottom.
The wall-bracket design allows for rotation of the speakers
at angles of up to 30º of center. Position the speakers so
that they face toward the primary listening position, before
fully tightening.

Wiring the Speaker
After placing the speaker, you are ready to connect it
to your system. First, turn off all audio system power.
Use high-quality speaker wire to make the connections.
Consult the owner’s manuals included with your
amplifier or receiver for connection and operation
One channe
Surround Modes
When using the system in a Dolby® Digital or DTS® home
theater system, make sure the receiver or processor is
set to “Small” for the front left, center, and front right
loudspeakers. When using the LCR8 in a Dolby Pro Logic®
home theater system, make sure the receiver’s center
channel mode is set to “Normal.”
Some receivers/processors offer a choice of crossover
frequencies. Select 110Hz as the crossover frequency
for the front left, center, and front right loudspeakers.
Some Dolby Digital-equipped receivers/processors offer
different setup options for each source or surround
mode, e.g., CD-stereo, DVD, Dolby, Pro Logic. In each
case, follow your equipment’s instructions to ensure that
the subwoofer output is turned on and that the speakers
are set to “Small” or to a crossover frequency of 110Hz
in each mode.
Wiring and Polarity
The LCR8 speaker has gold-plated terminals that can
accept bare wire.To ensure proper polarity, connect each
+ terminal on the back of the amplifier or receiver to the
respective + (red) terminal on each speaker, as shown in
Figure 4. Connect the – (black) terminals in a similar way.
See the owner’s manuals that were included with your
amplifier or receiver to confirm connection procedures.
Be sure to connect the left-channel wires to the
leftmost terminals, the center-channel wires to the
middle terminals, and the right-channel wires to the
rightmost terminals.
Important! DO NOT reverse polarities (+ to – or
– to +) when making connections. Doing so will
degrade the imaging and bass response of the
home theater system.
After correctly placing and wiring the LCR8 speaker and
the rest of your loudspeakers, adjust the levels for all of
the channels as recommended by the manufacturer of
your receiver/processor.
Figure 4: This example shows how to connect bare
wires to the terminals. Banana plugs may also be
inserted directly into the rear of the connector.
1. Loosen the terminals.
2. Inset bare ends; tighten terminals.
and Service
When needed, use a soft cloth to remove any fingerprints
or to wipe off dust. Do not use any cleaning products or
polish. Clean the grille by gentle vacuuming.
If your LCR8 loudspeaker should ever need service,
please contact your local dealer or distributor, or
visit www.revelspeakers.com for the location of a
service center.
