SKU: REL S3 Subwoofer

Product Overview: Beautifully balanced, S/3 offers powerful, incisive and beautifully balanced performance. Continuous Cast™ Cone Bass Engine The S3’s driver features an all-new alloy cone structure that takes REL’s mid-level product to an all new level of performance. By reducing moving mass, with a balanced approach to design, REL’s engineering team was able to produce far more speed than prior designs. By carefully adjusting key parameters, REL has been able to increase the self-quieting key to a high-end component’s ability to resolve space and inner detail. Improvements in their designs translate into enhancement in your entire system. Sound Beyond Its Size It uses a special carbon/carbon passive that is stiff, lightweight and incredibly well-behaved. The approach to passive design results in performance more akin to a variable ratio driver size. On an S3, think of it as a sliding ratio design wherein the S3 begins as an ultra-fast 10” sealed box design and, as more power and deeper bass is demanded S/3 gradually morphs into the power and output of a 15” design. Fast, Extended Lows Beyond REL’s proprietary drivers, the performance of a REL is determined by their unique input filters and amplifiers. REL S3 uses a simple filter-type that is very fast—about 8 milliseconds in group delay– to cross out unwanted higher frequencies to the driver. This speed and the carefully sorted filters allow for seamless blending of RELs with the main speakers. REL does not include a high pass filter to cross out bass from the main speaker because to do so would generally produce more unwanted effects than the minor benefits such a design confers. S/3’s power amplifier is a powerful NextGen2 400W digital amplifier. This design has powered thousands of RELs and has proven exceptionally reliable and very fast with deep, extended lows—it provides a perfect mate to the new driver. Freedom with LongBow™ Wireless Connectivity LongBow permits very fast, uncompressed bass to be sent wirelessly within the same room approximately 45 feet. We have selected an un compressed format as it results in natural, quick delivery compared with conventional wi-fi or Bluetooth systems. REL has developed a LongBow with both high level (or low level with crossover intact) AND .1 channel delivery so that REL Theatre Reference performance can be maintained even when using their wireless delivery system.
