THE NEWLY RE-ENGINEERED SHO SUPER HIGH OUTPUT

“REL makes superb active subwoofers in general and this one is so good, it is peer to at least one 15in model and other products nearly twice the price. In the Serie S, driver and amplifier engineering have created a new benchmark.” – Home Cinema Choice.

The NEW S/5 SHO – The Serie S Flagship

S/5 exceeds the mandate for mid-level models and crosses this model into true reference quality. S/5 SHO produces exceptionally low bass with tremendous impact and speed. Even difficult-to-render instruments such as pipe organs are dealt with effortlessly.Large scale, high end 2-channel systems make a perfect pairing for S/5 SHO and grand theaters are ideal. Medium to grand rooms are appropriate. Scale is Very Large, Speed is Exceptional, Attack and Slam is Visceral.

Smooth Speed & Slam – Continuous Cast™ Cone Bass Engine

S/5 SHO’s driver features an all-new alloy cone structure that takes RELs mid-level product to a performance that exceeds their reference products of only a few years ago. By reducing moving mass, with a balanced approach to design, their engineering team was able to produce far more speed than prior designs. By carefully adjusting key parameters, they were 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 – Carbon Passive Radiator

S/5 SHO uses a special carbon/carbon passive that is stiff, lightweight and incredibly well-behaved. Our approach to passive design results in performance more akin to a variable ratio driver size. On an S/5 SHO, think of it as a sliding ratio design wherein the S/5 SHO begins as an ultra-fast 12” sealed box design and, as more power and deeper bass is demanded, the S/5 SHO gradually morphs into the power and output of a 15” design.

Fast, Extended Lows – NextGen2 550W Digital Amplifier

Beyond their proprietary drivers, the performance of a REL is determined by their unique input filters and amplifiers. REL S/5 SHO 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 RELs carefully sorted filters allow for seamless blending of RELs with the main speakers. REL do 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/5 SHO’s power amplifier is a powerful NextGen2 550W 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 their new driver.
