REL G2: Possibly the Very Best 10-inch Subwoofer Ever Designed

REL's G2 features the same bold design motif as their incredible G1, but with a slightly smaller stature and a much friendlier price tag. The most recent exposition on amplifier topology, driver technology and operational interface, the G2's 10" long throw driver is housed within a sumptuous furniture-grade enclosure finished in gloss piano black lacquer. The elegant appearance belies the jaw-dropping performance awaiting inside. Employing an extensively braced enclosure sculpted in a truly sensuous shape, the G2 is relatively compact with its finely tuned looks. Finished in furniture-grade hand-rubbed high-gloss piano black lacquer, the G2 will blend seamlessly into any system.

"As a result of this bass control and reinforcement, midrange and treble sounds appear free form the physical constraints of the loudspeakers, as if the speakers became more like point sources. There is a spot on the dials where the sound 'snaps' into focus; this is clear, obvious and immediately understood by the listener. The G2 is not about adding bass, it’s about controlling it. You might need to read this line of couple of times for it to make sense, but the G2 doesn’t make its presence felt more forcefully than other subs, and as a result, is very highly recommended!"
– Alan Sircom, HiFi+

REL’s vast engineering experience is evident in the G2's power amplifier, featuring a linear Class A/B topology employing MOS-FET devices, massive power supplies and transformers. First-class build and component part choice is evident in its extensive ruggedness and reliability. Mated to this bass engine is a tight-wound carbon fiber 10" drive unit capable of an exceptional pistonic stroke of 1-1/2 inches! This drive unit was necessary in order to generate the ultimate in loudness required to underpin today's high-performance main loudspeakers.

"Having auditioned many subwoofers over the years, the REL G-2 is now at the top of my overachievers list and is featured as a TOP TONE component in issue 48. If you’d like to unlock your system’s full potential, you should audition one—or maybe six!"
– Jeff Dorgay, TONE Audio

Adding to the overall user experience is the G2's IR remote control. The unique round disc-shaped remote features three rotary encoder dials that control all adjustments for HI/LO Level, Crossover Frequency and .1/LFE Level. Phase, and Settings Lock are controlled via toggle switches. Located on the bottom front of the G2's enclosure is a large, bright LED readout providing a visual indication of all the G2's current settings. Now, for the first time, setup and adjustment can be done from the comfort of your listening position.

When too much is not enough, the REL G2 has included connectivity to allow multiple units to be used in conjunction with one another either in stereo pairs or vertically stacked towers. Doing so results in huge wave fronts of air, conveying the true power and majesty of a musical or film sound event effortlessly. The REL G2 embodies all the traditional REL virtues of performance, design and reliability.
