Measuring Up To The Competition

“How do you guys do it”? I got this question from a friend who is an engineer for another audio company after watching a YouTube review. Recently, a couple of young, fun YouTubers from Canada conducted a comparison test of three cool, new subwoofers. Of these, the new REL T/7x had by far the fewest watts, at 200W, a relatively small 8” active driver, and no DSP. This was compared to the competition that claims 2500 watts peak power, multiple active drivers, and DSP.

The first phase of the test was the basic question many viewers want to know upfront: which one plays the loudest and goes the deepest when used for theatre? Both reviewers were absolute in their judgement that the REL T/7x clearly played significantly louder and extended deeper than the other subwoofers. They were stumped at how this could be so given the specs of the other subwoofers compared to the REL subwoofer. In fact, the reviewers wondered aloud about the accuracy of some of the other subwoofer specs.

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.
