The Majestic S/5 exceeds the mandate for mid-level models and crosses this model into true reference quality. S/5 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 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 with Continuous CastTM Cone Bass Engine the S/5's driver features an all-new alloy cone structure that takes our mid-level product to a performance that exceeds our reference products of only a few years ago. Improvements in our designs translate into enhancement in your entire system. Sound Beyond Its Size, the S/5 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, think of it as a sliding ratio design wherein the S/5 begins as an ultra-fast 12" sealed box design and, as more power and deeper bass is demanded, the S/5 gradually morphs into the power and output of a 15" design. Fast, Extended Lows, the NextGen2 550W Digital Amplifier sets it apart from the competition. Beyond our proprietary drivers, the performance of a REL is determined by our unique input filters and amplifiers. REL S/5 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 our carefully sorted filters allow for seamless blending of RELs with the main speakers. Beautifully balanced, REL Acoustics S/3 offers powerful, incisive and beautifully balanced performance. Comes with connecting cable to run to amplifier. Can also be used wirelessly with addition of the REL Acoustics Longbow Wireless Transmitter Receiver.

This is a wonderfully musical sub. I've owned many subs (including my last one-a REL B-2), and this one is a wonderful value. I've been a fan of the Neutrik connector since the B-2, but the S-5 adds separate volume controls for x.1 input as well as the Neutrik connection. Spend the time to set up your system for music and surround sound-you'll be richly rewarded.
