Yoda's wisdom on subwoofers

Originally Written: Sunday, April 03, 2005

Friday the national trainer for REL stopped by the store and showed us how to set up their subs. It is completely contrary to the way that everyone else does it. As Yoda said, "You must unlearn what you have learned." I'm going to try their set up method in my system even though I don't own a REL, most of it should translate. It was truly a mind altering experience. For the first time the sub in a system completely disappeared. The only way to tell what the sub was doing was to take it out of the system. The interesting thing was that even instruments that have no bass benefited from the sub being in the system. I have heard many systems where the front wall melts away and you get to look into the recording venue, including my own. This was the very first time that the entire listening room melted away and you were in the recording venue. Strange stuff. If your interested check out the link and download the document entitled "Set-Up Guide" Read, try, and enjoy.
