The Role of the Rear Channel Subwoofer in REL-3D

For anyone whose heard a properly dialed-in home theater REL 3D system, where 3-dimensional aural reality is so thick and viscous it seems almost as though it is carved out of solid, rather than the ethereal, spacy but-not-really-there qualities of average home theatre rigs. Learning how to think about constructing one of these systems can seem daunting, but that’s why we’re here. And for anyone who fancies themselves a pure 2-channel guy or gal, know that as one ascends to the peak of both of those art forms, they come much closer together than when home theatre is left to the mid-fi muddlers. So, what roles do each of the RELs play in these systems?

Today, we’re jumping into the role of the rear channel REL(s) powered subwoofer when used in a home theater REL 3-D or home theater HT-3D system. The role of Rear Channel REL subwoofers is to deliver a sense of the vastness of 3-dimensional space throughout the body of the theatre, rather than having it locked to the 2-dimensional front screen only.

Our Purpose

We make subwoofers. That’s it. Nothing else. No distractions. Nothing to steal our focus. No kidding ourselves that we can be good at everything. No trying to conquer the whole world. We just do our best to conquer our bit of it.

Each day we come in to work in pursuit of only one intention, to produce the most raw, perfect, pure sound possible, to capture the raw intention of the artist. We use the best quality materials, employ the most exacting construction requirements. We think of the problem holistically. We pursue the chase of the perfect experience of sound with an obsessive passion and vigor.

We do it because we love sound. We believe sound can move people more than any other sense. We believe it’s the integration of the bass via the perfect subwoofer that makes everything else better. And, ultimately, there is a great deal of satisfaction to be gained from doing this well, creating something of unique quality, such that you know it is going to inspire. It makes the hard work and the obsessing over each and every detail worth all the effort. That’s our reward.
