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.
"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.
Our development work on a design never stops, even once we’ve signed off and gone into production. With the driver used in our S/5 SHO which used a new continuous casting process 12”/300mm alloy cone with cast thermoplastic voice coil locator to produce speed and weight reduction, we knew there was more to be explored. Specifically, increasing the number of drivers and bass alignment to determine a new sort of optimal price-to-performance ratio.
