REL S/510 SHO (Piano Black Lacquer): 10-inch Home Subwoofer!
- ContinuousCast Alloy Cone
- SuperProgressive Passive Radiator
- NextGen3 500W Digital Amplifier
S/510 takes REL’s compact-medium chassis concept to reference-like levels of performance and does so with style, power and incredible speed. It delivers incredible levels of all ‘round performance. S/510 allows those with less space, or when pairing with high end speakers that are slightly less robust to have a perfect dance partner when the S/812 is simply too much of a great thing.
COMPACT PACKAGE! Extreme Performance
For S/510, every aspect of the previous generation’s inner workings were examined without regard to its critical and customer-driven success. REL turned a fresh eye to power requirements, driver improvements, and specialty filters, upgrading each-to extract all the extra performance possible. All this alongside the cabinet refinements necessary for those upgrades to emerge cleanly. This latest S range is a triumphant development that has exceeded every expectation of the REL design team.
S/510’S BASS ENGINE! Invisibly Upgraded!
S/510 required upgrades to its ContinuousCast Alloy Cone to allow it to survive its massive power upgrades. To permit its thin, aluminum cone to survive 500 watts and incredibly long stroke, an ultra-lightweight backing of pure carbon fibre is strategically placed over portions of the rear surface of the cone. This produces two benefits; it strengthens and stiffens the cone and also eliminates reversion, wherein the backwave inside the cabinet is now prevented from interfering with the main launch of bass into the room. The result is more accurate and far louder deep bass.
SUPERPROGRESSIVE PASSIVE RADIATOR! Nothing Passive About This!
REL's uniquely tuned passive radiators use special suspensions, now with an additional 8 mm of linear travel, to produce performance unlike conventional subwoofers. REL's new SuperProgressive passive radiator produces extremely long travel allowing for very loud output while retaining the variable stiffness of its suspension. This allows it to act like a sealed box compact 12" design at low volumes and a high output 14" design at its limit.
At 500 watts the NextGen3 amplifier is borrowed from REL's former flagship model and produces huge reservoirs of power and current. The 20%+ increase in power (previous version was 400 watts) is needed to deliver the high output levels needed for modern theatre, as well as to produce the extremely deep bass in a high end 2-channel system. This increase in power is necessitated by REL's development on the musical front of an all-new circuit termed PerfectFilter that balance both frequency extremes.
PerfectFilter performs two seemingly disparate qualities; extending the strong, even response of the extreme low end of bass frequencies while simultaneously opening up air and delicacy in the middle and high frequencies of one’s system. Additionally, customized PureTheatre filters were applied to allow S/510 to keep up with modern theatre effects without breaking a sweat.
SERIE S LINE ARRAYS! Stacked for Ultimate Performance!
In the real world, bass occurs with width, depth and height. By stacking up to three units per side (stereo or theatre main L-R speakers) the proper perspective and height of sonic events are illuminated. This elevates reproduction from conventional stereo or theatre to a floor to ceiling panoramic, full scale perspective of each sonic event. Reviewers are lining up to marvel at the transformation of music and film into the full-scale representation that REL Line Arrays uniquely deliver.
