Field Notes is where we share insights, information and opinions on subwoofers, hi-fi systems and the joy of sound. So, put on your favorite album, mix yourself a drink and kick back, you might be here awhile.
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.
Our process at REL is simple and you should always begin with the first couple of steps,
after that the process gets a bit more advanced but it all begins with answering these
first 2 and maybe 3 questions:
"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.
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.
We’d like to challenge you to think beyond the obvious; let the audiophile inside have a little fun and kit out the Sonos with a few choice pieces that seriously elevate the sonic performance that lies within every Sonos. We see over and over again, installers and stores alike selling the lowest common denominator of Sonos performance—too frequently Soundbars spec’d into every room. Take a walk on the wild side; try using a Sonos Connect™ (preamp), upgrading the amplifier and speakers from run-of-the-mill in-ceilings to high performance monitors and a REL subwoofer tucked discreetly into a corner for the added weight and richness every system craves. Aaah, now there’s a nice den or library system that will provide respite from Winter’s chilly clime.
