"By a country mile the No.25 produces the fastest,
tightest bass I have ever heard in my cinema room.
This might not be what you would expect from such
a sizable driver – we tend to think of smaller
woofers having the edge in terms of speed.
Yet each percussive event is so eye-wateringly
taut it has sharp edges."
- Richard Stevenson, Home Cinema Choice
We make subwoofers, only subwoofers. When we set out make T/i, we wanted to
make the best possible subwoofer for small to mid-size systems, adjusting only
it's size, not it's speed, clarity or chest thumbing low-end. Mission accomplished.
When we began designing Serie S, we set out, quite literally, to revolutionize subwoofers. Serie S SHO combines a higher performance level than we have ever set out to deliver within our mid-level range, able to elevate higher-end systems in medium to large rooms. Winner of the Home Cinema Choice Best Buy Award and AV Tech Media Best Subwoofer.
The correct placement of your REL can drastically enhance its performance and transform your listening experience. So, we created this guide to help you get the most out of your REL and showcase how multiple subwoofers are now being used to provide breathtaking 2-channel scores and truly theater-quality 3D sound.
A properly constructed full-blown theater can be an expensive proposition. We advocate for the buildable theater—one in which the end goals are clearly identified early on, and then the theater system is built in stages that make sense. For the sake of brevity, this post deals only with the audio portion of the system but the same clear-eyed sense of purpose applies to the video portion of the theater. Follow along as we start small and grow the system in logical steps as the budget allows.
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.
