REL's Best-Selling Reference Subwoofer

A Classic Reborn

Upgraded Components, retained beauty

Retained is the classic curvilinear cabinet, with its shape carefully designed and engineered to cancel standing waves as they travel rearward through the cabinet. For even greater rigidity, the laminated hardwood bracing reminiscent of musical instruments managed to find a home though re-configured. The amplifier is the powerful, yet highly controlled and ultra-reliable 600w Class A/B with new limiters that allow almost 40% more power delivered without compression. The heart and soul of any REL, the driver has been upgraded with greater fore-and-aft stroke. It features a more supple suspension and the ability to handle greater dynamics. The new version is now capable of 112dB output, expanding the performance horizons of the original.

Reinforced Strength

Handcrafted from Marine Grade Hardwoods

With its 1-⅛” thick curvilinear surfaces artfully finished in 12 coats of hand polished piano black lacquer, the inner construction actually produces the clarity, quietness and dynamics. Designed and handcrafted, the resulting structure of the cabinet is far more than a beautiful shape, it is the structural basis for the deep bass produced.

Reproducing Perfection

Natural Floor to Ceiling Bass

Rel’s Reference Line Arrays permits bass to emerge more naturally, adding a height component in how it propagates throughout the room. The bottom unit reinforces the deepest overtones, rumbling across the floor to produce room shake. The middle location produces crisp attack and articulation of kick drums or any transient-based event. The unit imparts the flutter of all manner of instruments floating in air.

Reliable Source

A Carbon Fibre Core

The bass engine of any REL is its crowning glory. The G1 MKII driver is some 25% stiffer in bending modes than the award-winning original, which makes it better able to cope with the profound dynamics asked of a Reference Series REL. This improvement permits Rel to use a softer suspension better able to react quickly to dynamics, both large and small. The result is a substantial upgrade in the speed, liveliness and dynamics of the entire system. Suspension travel now permits over 2” of stroke, which makes for exceptionally high output, resulting in almost twice as loud a final result as its predecessor. This exceptional force and agility makes the G1 MKII ideal for powerful home theater as well as fine 2-channel systems.
