The Holy Grail of a REL experience
BEAUTY, POWER & SPEED
Rel’s No.25 Subwoofer is a premium subwoofer combining the power of an ultra-reliable 1,000 watt amplifier, with a lightweight and perfectly balanced carbon fibre 15” driver. The No.25 features REL’s renowned filter sets and proprietary crossovers with two separate parametric equalizers which permit flat in-room responses whilst maintaining speed and resolution. With this premium sub, Rel wanted their customers to enjoy such a phenomenal performance without the restrictions of only a few locations. As such, Rel designed their legendary LongBow™ wireless receivers into each No.25. With zero compression, stunning dynamics and bass extensions can be produced without being fastened to a cable. This is a key example of how Rel strives to offer the most thoughtful solutions to provide the best audio experience in the world.
Clarity developed from Strength and Elegance
Not only does the Rel No.25 possess physical beauty but the manner in which it manages the critical backwave propagating from the rear surface of the 15” carbon fibre piston at its heart is a new standard. The unique shape of the No.25 was designed with the intention of canceling much of the incredible force created by the inward stroke as your sub reloads for it’s next set of demands. This backwave must be kept as silent as possible in parallel with allowing the driver to ‘breathe’ without compressing dynamics.
The curvilinear walls of the cabinet work to deflect, diffuse and dissipate these waves into smaller cross plane waves. Rear waves are minimised and eventually emerge as comb filtering (noise that cancels the primary bass). This is how clear, purposeful bass can stride into any room with tremendous energy creating the ultimate audio experience. Rel’s design team are known to go to extreme lengths to deliver nothing but the finest subwoofer extant. Rel’s No.25 is composed of 30mm thick Australian MDF which has been transected by hardwood sars that can break up common mode resonances within the top surface of the cabinet and in turn, break down its sidewalls.
Natural Floor to Ceiling Bass
Rel’s reference line arrays permits bass to emerge naturally, adding a height component in how it propagates throughout the room. With the bottom unit reinforcing the deepest overtones to produce room shake, the middle location provides the 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. This product is the Holy Grail of the Rel Audio Experience.
Scalable Bass, from Whispers to Boom
It almost goes without saying that huge power is needed to invest the No.25 with all that it is capable of. The beast of a 1,000 watt NextGen3 amplifier that powers No.25 has proven itself previously, making Rel comfortable with its reliability as well as its sonic performance.
A Carbon Fibre Cone
Rel’s No.25 has a heart of pure carbon. Rel opted for a cone material that is stronger than steel but still light. No.25’s 15” cone structure weighs 70% less than a 10” cone of just two years ago. This perfect combination of light weight coupled with structural integrity is what gives No.25 it’s renowned speed and power.
