Sumiko Announces Special Edition of REL Sub-Bass System


REL-Acoustics-R-528SE-subwoofer-small.jpgSumiko recently announced the R-528SE by REL Acoustics.  The R-528SE by REL Acoustics is a Special Edition version of the current R-528 and was conceived in an attempt to provide the user with reference-level sub-bass performance, but in a much smaller enclosure, and at a lower cost.

This fresh design allegedly offers superiority in all regards over the standard issue R-528, through improved amplification, upgraded cabinet bracing and driver design. R-528SE still features both an active front firing and a down firing passive radiator, but using the same custom design carbon fiber 12" active drive unit employed in the G-1. The 12" ABR passive radiator is also of a carbon fiber design. Together, this driver complement claims to produce the equivalent of a 16" driver in an even larger cabinet.

Each R-528SE is available in a hand-rubbed gloss piano black lacquer with gloss white available on special order. To further distinguish it from the standard version, the top and side name badges as well as the massive support feet are coated in nickel-plated chrome.

The R-528SE will be available for shipment in early March 2013.
