REL Acoustics Stereo Pairs

Expanding Your Sound Stage With Dual RELs

It is important to understand that Stereo Pair subwoofers (a left channel and right channel subwoofer) is not about adding massive quantities of bass, but rather it is about adding to the quality of the sound and expanding the sound stage. A Stereo Pair of RELs are for customers looking for greater synchronicity with their speakers through improved speed, a smooth low-end evenness throughout the room, free of hot spots, and an expansion of the sound stage across the X, Y, and Z axis. This combination unlocks the outer 2/3rds of the presentation. A Stereo Pair of RELs is truly an illuminating experience for both music and Home Theater systems.

Why We Recommend a Stereo Pair or Dual Subwoofers for HT

Designer, John Hunter talks about what stereo pairs are about, why it’s a good idea, and also how you can start in many cases with a single and add one to wind up with a stereo pair down the road. What stereo pairs do is really interesting on a technical basis what they can do is really smooth out the evenness of response throughout the room. So when you have two sources that are making low bass, they tend to create peaks and valleys, but if you place them properly, you can smooth things out.
