While the outer form garners all the praise—its 1 ¼”curvilinear surfaces slathered in no fewer than 13 coats of hand polished lacquer has a way of inspiring attention—it is the inner construction that produces the balance of speed and power for which G-2 is revered. The marine grade laminated hardwoods employed in the musical instrument-grade internal bracing require two days of production time to complete a single unit. Each cabinet requires three weeks to hand-craft. The resulting structure is far more than a beautiful form, it is the crucible from which great music and theater emerges.
A Carbon Fibre Soul
The 10” bass engine fitted to every G-2 features ultra-light, stiff carbon fibre — the same material used to craft race car chassis – light weight results in greater speed. Power is handled by a large 4-layer Kapton voice coil capable of dissipating 500 watts, while the superior travel of the long-throw high energy suspension produces awe inspiring volume levels in your home.
A Classic Masterpiece
The massively beautiful, finned, alloy heatsink is necessary when dissipating the sorts of power necessary for hours of prodigious deep bass. Capable of outputting a conservative 450W the REL Class A/B amplifier used in G-2 is a masterpiece in its own right and is, in fact the amplifier from the original G-1, only with fewer output devices. Powerful fast and incisive, it remains one of the finest amplifier topology ever designed by our engineers.

“When you’ve finished playing with the G-2, it has as much grace as it does brute force. It also has one of the best manuals in audio, and unless you struggle to understand the controls on a kettle, the G-2’s manual will guide you painlessly through the whole process” Read More +
