REL Acoustics Brings S/510 Line Array to UK

REL Acoustics S/510 subwoofers will be on demonstration in a REL Line Array configuration paired with KEF Reference 1 loudspeakers. 

Visitors to the Bristol Hi-Fi Show 2020 will get to experience what promises to be a unique presentation of both music and digital theatre formats featuring REL Acoustics' S/510 subwoofers (£1,799) in a line array formation.

The demonstration, REL hopes, will help you understand how a set-up such as this can transform your listening experience.

In this case, KEF is providing a pair if its Reference 1 loudspeakers.

The 500 watt NextGen3 Class D amplifier powers a 10-inch active long-throw driver sat in a die-cast aluminium chassis which is further bolstered by a 12-inch passive radiator. That all adds up to a low-end extension down to 20Hz. REL also imbued the S/510 with the ability to be stacked in 4- or 6-unit line arrays, just like their reference models.

The line array of REL S/510s is a first for the UK, and we are told to expect “a floor to ceiling panoramic, full-scale perspective of each sonic event”. 

REL will also be offering some of their other subs at special show prices, at around £100 discount.
