When you hear REL you immediately can't help but think of subwoofers, so synonymous is the company's name with those floor, window and cerebellum rattling components of your hifi or home cinema setup. Formed in Bridgend, Wales in 1990 by Richard Edmund Lord, the company has over the years become known for little black boxes that look unassuming at first glance and then knock you down with their low frequency power.
Lord's designs are unique because they consider the subwoofer as a part that should not only amplify a line level signal but also allow the sub to wholly disappear into the music. The business took an upswing when John Hunter and Donald Brody joined, with a view to improve the cabinet designs and to ensure that every aspect of the REL customer experience is of the utmost quality. Today, REL are the consummate experts at designing crossover filters that improve both the music listening and home cinema experience by seamlessly blending low frequency sound into the overall aural tapestry.
