Continuous Cast Alloy Bass Engine for Speed and Resolution
S/3 SHO's driver features an all-new alloy cone structure that exceeds the performance of REL's reference products from only a few years ago. By reducing moving mass, REL's engineering team produced far more speed than prior designs. By carefully adjusting key parameters, REL increased the self-quieting key to this high-end component's ability to resolve space and inner detail.
Sound That Goes Beyond the Driver Size
S/3 SHO uses a special carbon/carbon passive radiator that is stiff, lightweight, and incredibly well-behaved. REL's approach to passive design results in performance more akin to a variable ratio driver size. On S/3 SHO, think of it as a sliding ratio design wherein S/3 SHO begins as an ultra-fast 10-inch sealed box design and, as more power and deeper bass is demanded, S/3 SHO gradually morphs into the power and output of a 15-inch design.
NextGen2 400W Digital Amplifier Delivers Tremendous Extension
The powerful NextGen2 400W digital amplifier, which has powered thousands of RELs and proven exceptionally reliable and very fast with deep, extended lows, provides a perfect mate to S/3 SHO's new driver. Beyond proprietary drivers, the performance of a REL is determined by unique input filters and amplifiers. REL S/3 SHO uses a very fast, simple filter-type to cross out unwanted higher frequencies to the driver. The speed and carefully sorted filters allow for seamless blending of RELs with your main speakers. REL does 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.
Free Your REL from Any Space Limitations with LongBow Wireless Connectivity
REL LongBow technology permits very fast, uncompressed bass to be sent wirelessly within the same room for up to approximately 45 feet. REL selected an uncompressed format since it results in natural, quick delivery compared with conventional Wi-Fi or Bluetooth systems. LongBow is developed with both high level (or low level with crossover intact) and .1 channel delivery so that REL Theatre Reference performance can be maintained even when using the wireless delivery system.
