REL Acoustics S/812 Subwoofer Overview

I John hunter with rel acoustics here
I’m our lead designer and I’m here to
take you through the latest iteration of
the serious we had some pretty lofty
goals for these the original ones when
so many awards on three different
continents that we had to really take a
deep hard look at ourselves to figure
out how we were gonna make it a lot
better in the end we decided that we
needed to make the home theater point
one LFE performance just much much
stronger than it has been on the
original s’s and we also wanted to take
a stab at improving the high end to
channel performance to that end what we
wound up doing was going to an 800 watt
12 inch active driver combination with a
passive 12 that we had to completely
redesign to keep up with the new driver
and the combination is magical you’ve
got something that is incredibly linear
below 30 Hertz we’re about 10 DB louder
than the outgoing s’s we’ve got power to
burn what you really need when you’re
doing big systems when you’re doing big
theater you need massive amounts of
power to cope with that so we’ve got an
amplifier that’s notionally rated at a
thousand watts we sleeve it down to
about 800 to keep it all together but
this thing plays incredibly loud when we
say 800 watts we mean 800 watts for 24
continuous hours
it’s an insane standard but we want to
make sure these drivers will really hold
up out there in the real world in order
to get them to not literally physically
explode from the air pressure that’s
generated by that much power we had to
reinforce the back of the comb so we’re
using an ultra lightweight carbon fiber
girdle back there that stiffens quiets
and literally keeps the driver together
that entire assembly on the back weighs
less than a single sheet of paper and
yet it stiffens and quiets at about 50
percent the Sirius amplifier on the 812
required a massive upgrade so we’ve
stepped up to a thousand watt amplifier
that we actually do a very gentle job of
limiting to about 800 plus we actually
have an intelligent limiter that lets it
get up to a thousand watts at times what
we’ve got here are inputs that are
separate for both theatres and for
high-end high-level to channel work so
if you’re new to rel you see a whole
bunch of stuff you’re like what what are
we looking at here we have to speak on
inputs and outputs this allows for
future stackability if you want it and
take your stereo pair and actually
increase it up to three apiece so we’ve
got an input for this that’s high level
now I’ve also got and this is a new
thing for for this generation
we’ve got balanced XLR 0.1 LFE inputs
this allows you to come off your theater
processor balanced these may be a good
30 40 feet away and the balance that you
drive it a lot more successfully and
then once we move over here you’ll see
we’ve got a full suite of controls we
have the point one LFE gain control
which is completely separate from the
high level or low level input what this
means is you can actually have both
theater and to channel done perfectly in
the same system the point one LFE of
course are very loud special effects for
theater these controls are for both gain
and for crossover function and we’ve got
new filters in here that are the best
we’ve ever done in these mid prices
we’ve got something that basically
gently elevates and extends and flattens
out the extremely low base so much so
that we’ve got almost twice as much real
raw output down at 20 Hertz as we did
with the old ones and we’ve also got a
new portion of it these filters are
generically referred to in houses are
perfect filters that does a beautiful
job of extending the high frequency
content way up into the upper mid-range
and high frequency so here Aaron halls
you’ve never heard before and because
we’re rel
we do really really superlative Wireless
so the wireless function on these allows
you to send completely uncompressed 5.8
gig which is a standard that was
previously reserved only for the
military and this is a brand new system
we’ll be bringing out shortly after the
units themselves launch the fantastic
they send very fast very uncompressed
base about 50 to 60 feet I think we
actually only qualify for 35 feet in
because we’re kind of picky but
literally we’ve shot these things 60 65
feet in their laps we’re really known
for these beautiful cabinets that we
supply this one like the previous ones
has no fewer than 12 coats of hand
sanded and hand polished lacquer just
absolutely beautiful not just for the
shininess of it but take a look at the
depth we managed to get in our paint to
really really flat straight cabinets all
the prep work is fantastic what we got
here is a design that actually is larger
but appears to be smaller it’s more
compact looking from the front if you
were to stand them up side by side the
previous generation with this generation
it immediately looks crisper and more
modern and what we’ve done in order to
get just a little bit more cabinet
volume with just what allows it to have
more extension and bigger base is we’ve
actually extended the depth of this
cabinet by just a little bit more the
rails which are really how we wind up
with this cab forward look cabinet
forward is something that allows to have
us to have a lot of surface area a lot
of stability which we’ll need because
these are actually stackable cabinets
for the first time our mid range is
available with the same accoutrements
it’ll allow us to stack up to three high
per side just like our reference
products do the rails are actually about
3/4 of the depth of the piece and and
all the hardware’s upgraded on these
pieces when you look at these we’ve got
these massive cast stainless steel
handles on the side you’ll be able to
actually easily pick these up and move
them about they’re really functional but
really beautiful so in conclusion what
we’ve done on these new s’s is we made
them more beautiful actually larger
while appearing to move be more compact
far more powerful the point one LFE
performance is off the hook now the high
level and low level high quality to
channel inputs have been improved beyond
description
we’ve got a system we call perfect
filters that both at the same time
extends out the extreme bottom end and
actually does a better job of connecting
up into the upper mid-range and high
frequencies of your main speakers in
such a way that it just opens up and
creates beautiful air
and detail and definition in the high
frequencies that we’ve never been able
to accomplish in this price range of the
size range before
