REL 212SE Subwoofer

212SE
De laatste verrassing uit de stal van is de REL 212SE. Hoewel klein in voorkomen, schuilt in deze in alle opzichten dubbel uitgevoerde subwoofer een echte wolf. Hij is zeker en vast in staat om ook de grotere ruimtes voldoende onder druk te zetten. Deze druk is tenslotte het geheim van de smid. In de kleine toren, prachtig in hoogglans zwart afgewerkt, schuilen maar liefst vier 12” units, twee actief aangestuurde en twee passieve aluminium radiatoren. De actieve units worden van energie voorzien door een NextGen3 Klasse-D versterker met een uitgangsvermogen van maar liefst 1.000W. Het systeem is in staat meer dan 110dB per unit te produceren. Op z’n REL’s dan; onvervormd strak, diep laag. En als het moet draadloos aan te sturen, want een LongBow ontvanger is reeds ingebouwd. Er hoeft dan alleen nog een LongBow zender bij te worden aangeschaft. Maar dat hoeft natuurlijk niet....

Quality Meets Quantity REL Most Powerful
We believe in quality first, not simply power and boom. We believe that 1,000 watts is only desirable if it’s conveyed with speed and control. Which is why the 212/SE was engineered to not only make your heart pound and walls shake, but restore midrange warmth and harmonic structure, while providing a powerful, rich low-end. This combination of speed, power and grace driving multiple room modes (forward, down and rear) makes it ideally suited for high end 2-channel, grand rooms and dedicated theaters, allowing larger state of the art speakers to spring to full voice.

Command and Control NextGen3 1,000w Digital Amplifier
Beyond our proprietary drivers, the performance of a REL is determined by our unique input filters and amplifiers. 212/SE uses a simple filter-type that is very fast—about 8 milliseconds in group delay– to cross out unwanted higher frequencies to our driver. This speed and gentle crossover slopes allow for seamless blending of RELs with the main speakers. RELs 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. 212/SE’s power amplifier is a powerful NextGen3 1,000W (1,700 peak) digital amplifier. This Herculean design allows each driver to output over 110 dB with ease–power enough to drive very large rooms to very high outputs.

Double Down Twin Continuous CastTM Alloy Bass Engines
To produce our highest output single-box solution, we doubled up on the Continuous CastTM Alloy Bass Engines that bring critical acclaim to Serie S, altering them slightly for this twin front-firing configuration. These twin actives are responsible for 212/SE’s incredible speed and tactility. Our Continuous CastTM Alloy Cones reduce moving mass while maintaining rigidity, producing far more speed and precision than prior designs. These twin long-stroke 12″ bass engines, partnered with (2) matching 12″ passives provide the speed quality of a REL with a power never felt before. This combination offers the driven surface area of twin 17” drivers in a cabinet just 16” wide.

Sound Beyond Its Size Dual Continuous Cast Alloy Passive Radiator
The 212/SE uses two matching Continuous Cast Alloy passives that are stiff, lightweight and incredibly well behaved. Our approach to passive design results in performance more akin to a variable ratio driver size – as more power and deeper bass is demanded, the passive comes to life, gradually expanding the capabilities of the active engines. The down firing passive produces deep, floor-crawling bass that makes a room shudder. Mounted above the amplifier panel on the rear is the second passive. This unit produces wrap around “atmospheric” bass that adds air and shimmer to the sound. Coupling with either the rear wall or the rear corner of a room allows for bass to develop exceedingly long wavefronts and adds an ease and effortless quality unique to single-box designs.

Freedom LongBow™ Wireless Connectivity
LongBow permits very fast, uncompressed bass to be sent wirelessly within the same room approximately 45 feet (somewhat dependent upon room clutter). We have selected an uncompressed format as it results in natural, quick delivery compared with conventional wi-fi or Bluetooth systems. Because it is a REL, we developed LongBow 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 our wireless delivery system.
