REL Acoustics make subwoofers. That’s it. Nothing else. No distractions. Nothing to steal their focus. No kidding themselves that we can be good at everything.They use the best quality materials, employ the most exacting construction requirements. They think of the problem holistically.They believe sound can move people more than any other sense. They believe it’s the integration of the bass via the perfect subwoofer that makes everything else better.
In order to cope with all the output but deliver the kind of speed REL experience in pro transfer studios, the cone had to be lightweight, rigid and clever as well. The low mass cone means less magnet is needed.They created a new class of driver with an alloy/fibre composite. This combination produces tremendous speed capable of delivering the suddenness they insist upon.Their acclaimed input filters and robust amplifiers result in some of the best sounding, most reliable designs ever produced. High current power supplies, huge toroidal transformers, and what many critics call the best filters in the world produce the famous REL Effect—where in not simply the bass region but ALL music and movie sound is uplifted and improved.
