REL - S/2 - Active Subwoofer
Call for stock levels
Fast, Fun & Powerful
S/2’s driver receives a new purpose-designed anodized aluminium dustcap. This both stiffens the cone structure, resulting in improved transient response (snap and attack) while lowering the moving mass some 15%. Careful tuning of this unit to cabinet volume and the new matching downfiring passive driver results in outstanding performance for a model of this size and price. Powerful, fast and tuneful is the S/2.
REL’s passive drivers are carefully matched to the active. In the case of S/2, we literally use the same driver as S/2 for a precise match, then tune the resonant frequency a little lower to extend the bass performance downward for a cleaner overall effect.
Beyond the drivers, the performance of a REL is determined by the input filters and amplifiers. REL S/2 uses a simple filter-type that is very fast—about 8 milliseconds in group delay to get through to our driver. This speed and carefully sorted filters allows for seamless blending of RELs with the main speakers.
S/2’s power amplifier is a powerful NextGen2 250W digital amplifier. This design has proven exceptionally reliable and very fast with deep, extended lows—it provides a perfect mate to its driver.
